Once rugged receiver
The Boss MGV520B digital media receiver packs a lot of features into a compact design that fits into a standard gauge opening. Crank up some AM/FM radio, or plug a compatible device into the rear USB or AUX inputs. The pre-set EQ lets you optimize the sound for your favorite tunes, and the full set of preamp outputs will come in handy if you want to expand your system with marine amps and subs. There's also a rear camera input if you want to add one of those to your system later. The color LED display lets you see what you're hearing with just a glance, while the IPX6-rated water-resistant face panel and big, easy-to-use controls are made to resist sun, salt, and moisture.
Two colorful speakers
You also get a pair of Boss MRGB65B marine speakers that pair up perfectly with this receiver. These durable 6-1/2" speakers provide plenty of low-end punch and good clarity, with a water-resistant design that stands up to outdoor use. And, of course, the RGB LED lighting looks terrific. You can choose the look you like using the included remote control.
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.
