Overview

Our take on the Boss Riot BRRC14

The Riot BRRC14 soundbar is the ideal finishing touch for the Boss sound system you're building for your side-by-side or ATV. This 14" A-pillar soundbar sports two 3" full-range speakers and two 1" horn-loaded tweeters for outstanding sound. A compact Class D amplifier pumps out 300 watts of max power, so they can stand on their own or fill out a larger system.

Music streaming

With built-in Bluetooth audio streaming, you can play music stored on your iPhone or Android smartphone, or get into your favorite music apps. There's also a charging USB port and an AUX input for MP3 players. And you can connect it to your other Boss Reflex and Riot speakers using the built-in 2-volt preamp outputs.

Made to make it in the outdoors

Boss designed their Riot BRRC14 speakers for life in the outdoors. Marine-rated componentry, along with IPX5-rated weatherproofing and dustproofing, ensures that these compact speakers can stand up to almost anything you drive through. The rugged grilles will shrug off branches and brush, while the built-in LED dome lights can brighten up the darkest nights. The entire package is wrapped up in an extruded aluminum body with a clever internal heat dissipating system.

The versatile Boss mounting system fits 1-1/2" to 2" roll bars and includes multi-angle adjustable clamps, so you can install it on a variety of vehicles.

Great utility speaker for the money!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I originally bought the Pro Armor 4-speaker Bluetooth bar as a gift for my boyfriend, and returned it because this Boss Recoil was such a better product and for the same money. It fits great on the roll bar of our Can Am Commander and does not get in the way of our line of sight at all. It came with all that was needed and more to properly install on the machine. The sound is great and powerful, and it easily compares to our friends $600 sound bar. Also, it has a charging USB port which is great when you are on the trail. We can't wait for more riding with our music!

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

price and size of the unit. hopefully it comes through as advertised. [ Paul  Aug 07, 2018 ]

7 questions already asked

The speaker has grooves in the back where you can slide the mounting bracket to fit your application [ Jared  Oct 29, 2018 ]
I cannot find the banana plugs you refer to with this amplified soundbar. I do see that there is a set of RCA connections that goes unused until another powered soundbar is added. Those can be left alone until then. Some customers choose to put inserts into them to help keep noise out of the system: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_703RCANSC/item.html My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Paul [ Paul  Sep 24, 2018 ]  Staff
You do not have to do anything with the second connections. FYI, the instructions are easy to follow and explain all of the connections. [ Buzz  Sep 17, 2018 ]
That's what I did. Until I later down the road want to install something extra. Shouldn't have any issues [ Joshua  Sep 17, 2018 ]
Given that we have so many speaker options to choose from, you would be best served contacting an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. They can provide a more personalized recommendation suited to your vehicle, system and budget. Hope that helps! [ Larry  Aug 10, 2018 ]  Staff
Not really, but I have it on top of a cooler. There is a small section on the bottom front that required me to put a couple of pieces of wood on top of the cooler to allow the small bottom section to ride flat on the cooler lid. I have been happy with the unit, it has great sounds. [ KYLE  Aug 07, 2018 ]
Not much. However, I installed the sound bar and find the sound to be adequate unless I am running with the stinger exhaust. [ Buzz  Aug 07, 2018 ]
It comes with rubber fittings to mount it. Mainly for whatever bar system you want to put on it. It's smaller than most but, puts out a lot of sound. Not sure if that helps [ Joshua  Aug 07, 2018 ]
The Boss Audio System BRRC14 comes with multi-angle adjustable mounting clamps to fit roll-bars from 1.5" to 2.0", allowing you to install into a variety of vehicles and mounting locations.
