Product Research

Features

Overview: The Boss MC470B weather-rated speaker and amplifier system is designed for motorcycles, scooters, and off-road vehicles, such as ATVs and side-by-sides. You can stream music from your smartphone via Bluetooth, or through an auxiliary input, and conveniently raise and lower the volume through a remote volume control. The system includes two pairs of 3" chrome speakers and a 1000-watt (total peak power), 4-channel Class D amplifier. Power, ground, and speaker wires are included.

Amplifier Inputs: The amp has two inputs: 3.5mm mini-jack and Bluetooth. Both inputs are live simultaneously, so if more than one is connected, selection must be made by turning the unused source off.

Speaker Mounting: The speakers are designed to mount to a round tube (0.75" to 1.25") using the adjustable stainless steel clamps. Rubber mounting shims are included for secure installation. Once the speakers are in place, but before the brackets are tightened, you can adjust the mounting angle. After mounting, the speakers can still swivel almost 360°.

Wiring: All the wiring is fixed length and already attached to the speakers and amplifier. Each speaker has a 48" speaker wire with a 2-pin Molex plug. The amplifier has four 21" speaker wires, 21" power/ground wires, and a 21" Auxiliary input cable with a female 3.5mm jack, all with 2-pin Molex plugs. A 75" cable with a rotary volume control is attached to the amplifier. The end of the cable can be mounted to a panel through a 0.27" diameter hole. A separate 18-gauge power/ground cable, with a 7.5A in-line fuse, is provided for powering the amplifier. It connects to the power/ground wire on the amplifier. To prevent draining the battery power, it is recommended that the power cable be connected to the battery and ignition system via a 12 VDC SPDT (single-pole, double throw) relay (not included).

Dimensions:

  • Speakers:
    • Width: 4-1/8"
    • Height: 4-1/4"
    • Mounting Height: 5-1/2" (above center of the bar to which the speaker is mounted)
    • Depth: 4-3/4"
    • Weight: 1.5 pounds each
  • Amplifier:
    • Width: 2-5/16" (3-1/8" including mounting flange)
    • Height: 1-7/16"
    • Length: 3" (5" including wiring and mounting flange)

Specifications:

  • Voltage: 10-16 volts DC
  • Max Power: 1,000 watts
  • THD: <0.1%
  • Signal to Noise Ratio: >85 dB
  • Channel Separation: >50 dB
  • Frequency Response: 50 Hz - 15 kHz
  • Sensitivity: 130 mV

Extended Warranty: Purchasing the unit from Crutchfield, a Boss Authorized Platinum Online Dealer, qualifies the user to a free extended warranty. The warranty is extended for an additional two years for a total warranty of three years.

Q
Is the amp waterproof ?
[ William  Aug 04, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Nope. Had this set mounted on a Harley that is garaged and they got wet once- not super wet, sprinkled on- and they burned out.
[ Lori Ann  Aug 19, 2019 ]
Q
How many decibels is this product? I have a Harley with a loud exhaust and have trouble finding speakers that aren't drowned out by my pipe
[ Brettmk13  May 29, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
I have an 08 rocker, short Shot exhaust without baffling and can hear it at 80mph with a bandanna around my ears. As far as decibels I would guess around 140-150 range ( just a guess). For the price it's the loudest I've heard. Twice as loud as the harley set I first bought.
[ Christopher  Jun 06, 2018 ]
Q
Does the amp get hot? Can you get this in black? Of course taking precautions with the jacks and lights, can I spray paint the amp without causing a heat problem?
[ dennis  Apr 05, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
I'm really not sure about the paint but it does get warm especially on long rides with it cranking . it would be nice in black but I'd try to call the manufacturers
[ ANTHONY  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
The Imp gets a little warm I have it in a leather bag attached to the frame down by the oil filter on my bike I don't know anything about spray painting it but I've enjoyed what I bought so far
[ Robbie joe  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
The amp heats up pretty significantly. Haven't had any overheating issues but it gets pretty warm.
[ Tyler  Apr 23, 2018 ]
Q
Can you get this system with brackets that will fit 2inch bars?
[ Chris  Sep 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I have 1" bars on my Harley. I had to make some bushings for the brackets with some cork gasket material for them to fit snug. The brackets had room for expansion and I believe you could get them to work on your bars as well. I like the system and it's been wet once or twice and still belts out the tunes. Good value for your money.
[ Mike  Sep 10, 2017 ]
Q
Are the speakers wired to the amp or wireless?
[ Alec  Jun 18, 2014 ]

[ BARBRA  Jun 25, 2014 ]

Everything is wired to gather. I'm happy with the system
[ robert  Jun 19, 2014 ]

[ DANNY R  Jun 19, 2014 ]
Q
Can I connect this the head unit? Also does this product come with wire harness or do I have to buy wire amp kit?
[ Ernesto  Jun 17, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.
[ Greg  Jun 17, 2014 ]  Staff
Q
I'm looking for golf cart speakers. Can this be paired with a powered subwoofer?
[ remst  Jun 07, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: This amp is strictly designed to power the 4 3" speakers. But you can put a powered subwoofer into the system if your receiver has a subwoofer output. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
