Simple, smart, and sturdy

The Boss 560BRGB CD receiver gets you into the Bluetooth® wireless game affordably, along with lots of music options to keep you entertained on your drive. In addition to a wireless remote, Boss also includes straightforward faceplate controls and a variable-color display that enables you to pick the right look for your dash.

Wireless convenience with Bluetooth

You can answer a phone call with the push of a button and talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. And this Boss receiver supports Bluetooth audio streaming, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, with basic control over Internet radio stations, like Pandora® and Spotify®.

Lots of music options

Not everyone uses the same devices for music, so Boss provided several ways to get your music playing. They included a front auxiliary input for portable audio players, as well as a front USB port for playing MP3 files. You can always slide in your favorite CDs, including discs burned with MP3 and WMA files. Finding songs on your media is easy, thanks to an alphabetic directory search feature.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Bluetooth Technology: The Boss 560BRGB CD receiver is equipped with built-in Bluetooth, providing hands-free communication and audio streaming for added convenience and safety in the vehicle.

    • Hands-Free Communication (w/ Integrated Mic): The Boss 560BRGB allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth enabled cell-phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer or end a call through the head unit's front-panel controls. The 560BRGB allows you to carry on the phone conversation using the head unit's integrated microphone and your car audio speakers. Your music will mute automatically during a call. You can make a call using the included remote control's keypad (there is no phonebook transfer).
    • Wireless Audio Streaming: The Boss 560BRGB also allows you to play back stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, table, or portable digital music player using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) of from the 560BRGB. Advance music navigation and song/artist information will still need to be handled through the Bluetooth mobile device. This unit does not display song/artist information from Bluetooth audio devices.
    Note: Before using the unit's Bluetooth functions, you must pair your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone or audio device to the 560BRGB. Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some mobile devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Boss 560BRGB.

    Disc Compatibility: The Boss 560BRGB features a single disc player that will playback CD-Audio and finalized CD-R/RW audio discs. The unit supports playback of MP3/WMA music files recorded onto CD-R/RW discs.

    USB Port: The 560BRGB is equipped with a front-panel USB (type-A) port for connection of a USB mass storage class device, such as a USB thumbdrive or portable digital music player. The unit supports playback of MP3/WMA music files loaded onto a compatible USB msc device. USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the CD receiver's USB port (0.5A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On.

    Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android smartphones/tablets.

    AM/FM Tuner: The Boss 560BRGB features a built-in AM/FM tuner. The 560BRGB features 3 FM banks and 2 AM bank for storing presets (automatically or manually). You can store 6 presets for each AM/FM bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 12 AM presets (total of 30). You can set the built-in AM/FM tuner between US standard and European tuning spacing.

    Dual Aux Inputs: The CD receiver is fitted with a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of any portable audio player with a 3.5mm headphone output. The head unit is also fitted with a rear-panel stereo RCA input for connection of an external audio source.

    Equalizer: You can choose between 4 preset modes - Pop, Rock, Classic, Flat, or Off.  In addition to the EQ Presets, the 560BRGB offers independent Bass & Treble control.

    Loudness: The Loudness function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer at lower volumes.

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Faceplate: The 560BRGB's's face-plate is detachable to deter theft and comes with a hard plastic face case. A zippered, padded soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can also be purchased to protect the face when removed.

    Variable Color Button Illumination: You can choose Red, Green, Yellow, Blue, Magenta, Cyan, or White for the CD receiver's front-panel button illumination. You can also choose to have the receiver cycle through all colors. The LCD screen's illumination will remain a bluish white color.

    A
    Inexpensive (I have an old car). Was originally going to buy the Boss 508UAB unit, but online research showed that the 560BRGB had essentially the same features but with a detachable face (important to me) and more traditional button layout. Also has slightly more power, takes a full size SD card and the different illumination color choices might come in handy for different times of days and seasons. [ George  Jun 18, 2018 ]

    My son got his first car (used). Its an old truck and factory stereo was horrible. Wanted something affordable that offered Bluetooth and CD player. This seems to have those basic features and did not break the budget. [ Michael G.  Mar 26, 2018 ]

    Q
    Are you able to change the display color on the unit? It defaults to a cycle of all the colors and it is very distracting when driving at night. I checked the manual and did not see anything related to this in it.

    Funny you asked! Put this in my son's car and he's never bothered to change the crazy lights - says they help him stay focused when he's driving (somehow). So don't know if the colors can be set or not. My wife has a similar unit in her car, and she was able to pick a color. Just went to Crutchfield FAQ and here's what they said: Go to settings then arrow over to illumination and you can select whatever color you want. Its under general settings. Hope this helps!
    [ Lynwood  May 07, 2019 ]
    A
    Nope, just cycles like you described..
    [ Curtis  May 06, 2019 ]
    A
    My bad you are asking HOW to. You have to press the big dial on the left and keep clicking it until you see color, than rotate until you find the color you want.
    [ Vincent  May 06, 2019 ]
    A
    Yes you can change the display color. You can choose from red green blue cyan and purple. The blue light burnt out of on me after awhile which is a bummer so I switched to cyan.

    A
    I haven't found a need for a brighter display. Of the four colors available I find the blue works best for daytime display but not glaring at night. I'd suggest putting it on the multi color that switches the color at regular intervals for a while until you find one that works best for you

    How to remove Boss 560BRGB radio?
    [ Kara  Apr 14, 2019 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Bottom left or right of head unit there is a button you can press to take just the head unit module out. To take the entire assembly you need the 2 keys that you jam into a small hole on the side of the radio and pull out. Check videos on how to take radio out.

    I have an IPhone 6 and it connects via Bluetooth every day. It'll allow you to play music, audiobooks, have phone calls, etc... I believe the answer to your question is yes depending on what you want your iPhone to do. Hope that helps.
    [ Andrew  Apr 03, 2019 ]
    A
    Absolutely. I love this radio I use my IPhone to listen to audio books and my IPod to listen to music. My husband and I drive 160 miles every couple of weeks to see our grandson and spend the weekend with them. We are able to listen to music all the way there and back. I download the Stingray Music app (the music channel provided through our cable provider) and can play all their music. I love this product.

    If you are referring to Bluetooth, yes. I used my Android Samsung and a friend used his iPhone and both worked equally well.

    [ Alex  Sep 29, 2018 ]
    2 answers
    A
    Yes You will need a dongle (wire/cable, etc) to patch between the Boss and your aux device. Crutchfield should be able to help you with this. There's a website that sells exclusive to dongles.
    [ William  Sep 29, 2018 ]
    A
    Yes, if your stock radio didnt have an aux input, being that this radio does you can use the aux and it will work! Nothing to do with wiring just head unit!

    [ Alex  Sep 29, 2018 ]
    1 answer
    A
    In a word, Yes. There is an AUX on the front panel. If you are going to use the AUX input a lot, I would hook a cable to the rear inputs and snake a 1/8" phone plug out front. I wouldn't trust the AUX input on the front for very long, as it may wear out or get scratchy over time.

    Q
    is that model save the changes that you made, like radio channels, clock, colors, etc... or every time when you started the car you need to make them again?
    [ lucky  May 21, 2018 ]
    7 answers
    A
    All the changes that you enter into memory will stay in memory until such time that it is changed by you again. To ensure further that it does stay in memory, it is recommended that you always power the unit OFF before removing the face plate and or shutting off the ignition. This makes sure that the changes always remain locked.

    Q
    I recently installed this in my MINI and notice two things: 1) This unit cannot be turned on when the car is off. 2) Inserts a short silence between tracks on CDs - annoying when listening to music where the tracks should blend as part of one continuous piece of music. Is there any way to override either of these issues?

    Q
    I have a 2009 Nissan Altima with radio controls on the steering wheel. Will the radio controls on the steering wheel still work for this radio? The radio I want to replace is factory.
    [ Phil  Mar 18, 2018 ]

    A
    The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

    If you press the volume button once (just press and release) you'll get the EQ, fader, balance, etc. If you enable the EQ (pop, rock, classical, etc.) when you're in this mode then the bass & treble options aren't shown. You have to set the EQ to off (or none, I don't remember what the option is), then the bass & treble options will be shown. If you press & hold the volume button then the area US/EU, clock 12/24 and beep options are shown.

    Press the volume knob once and you should get all the options by rotating the knob clockwise. Once the option you are wanting is displayed, press the knob again to set. Continue setting the same way for the other options.

    Q
    How can I adjust the dialtone? It is f default at volume 15 which is very loud. I can lower it but I can't figure out how to save the changes when I make it volume 4.
    [ Adam  Nov 17, 2017 ]
    1 answer
    A
    The Volume for dialtone appears to be at highest level by default in the Boss. To adjust, lower the output volume on the phone. Pair the phone and Boss again with the output volume on the phone adjusted to about half way level. Once the output volume on the phone has been adjusted to about half level, it should be maintained at the chosen setting on the Boss. This should not affect the set volume of the phone once blue tooth mode is disabled and will revert to whatever level you had it set prior to engaging blue tooth. Hope that helps.

    Is this compatible with a 15 inch subwoofer?
    [ Pugg  Nov 13, 2017 ]
    1 answer
    A
    A 15" subwoofer will need an amplifier to power it. Both the Boss & JVC stereos provide the RCA pre-amp outputs for providing the audio signal to an external amplifier.

    The Bluetooth call works thru your car speakers. It works very well while driving. I have had no issues at all. As long a you have your phone mated to the stereo.

    Yes, it does. However (and this could be due to installation issues ) it has a lot of engine noise, according to my daughter. But it DOES work.

    I never found a way to have the radio show the time other than pushing the right buttons to show the time. And I believe if you did not do it right it turned the radio off. I hope I am answering about the right radio. I had a pioneer radio installed in a different vehicle shortly before I installed the the boss in a different vehicle. I wish I would have installed the pioneer radio in both vehicles because I liked it more and it showed the time constantly, and I would have only needed to learn one radio. I have to say the boss was a good value but I installed the radio shortly before a whitetail deer decided to total the ranger I had it mounted in so it is now in my garage disconnected. But it did work very well other than not showing the time normally.
