Impressive sound at a really nice price
Does your boat's stereo system sound weak and waterlogged? It's probably time for a new one. With this combo deal from Boss Marine, you can replace your receiver and speakers for a surprisingly reasonable price. The Boss MCBK634B.6 package includes a marine-rated digital media receiver, a pair of rugged 6-1/2" marine speakers, an antenna, and a remote control. If you're looking for a sturdy audio system that sounds good, this package has everything you need.
A rugged receiver
Boss designed their MR632UABK digital media receiver for life in the outdoors, with a UV-resistant exterior that resists fading and a conformal-coated PC board that resists corrosion. The detachable faceplate features a single-line alphanumeric text display that's easy to read day or night. When you leave your boat at the dock, you can slip the detachable face into a cubby to keep it out of sight.
Plenty of ways to play
Built-in Bluetooth® lets you steam Spotify, Pandora, or your own digital music collection from your iPod®, iPhone®, or Android™ smartphone, but that's not the only way to enjoy your tunes. You can also play music stored on a USB drive or SD card, or plug your MP3 player into the 3.5mm aux input. All the openings are protected from salt and spray when not in use, of course. And you can control all functions (except for Bluetooth) with the included remote.
The two Boss MR6B marine speakers are a great match for the MR632UABK. These durable 6-1/2" dual-cone speakers provide plenty of low-end punch and excellent clarity. The water-resistant design looks great and stands up to moisture and sunlight.

If you want to connect an external amp, the MR632UABK sports two pairs of 2-volt preamp outputs.
