Great product



Cheap product

Jason from Rogers, AR on 5/29/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield is great. Product, not so much. Mine broke within 2-weeks. I had it installed by my marine dealer so it's not an install flaw, strictly a product flaw. The hinge consists of two plastic rods/shafts that are only 1/4"(approx) long. The plastic rod sheared (broke) and after attempting multiple plastic adheasives including Krazy Glue and an epoxy binder specially made for plastics, it continues to break from simple operation. I will be replacing it with a product that has a continuous hinge system or at the least steel rods. This is a common problem with this product based on other reviews I have read on other sites. Pay the money and get a quality cover.

Pros: Nice asthetics

Cons: Hinge breaks too easily from normal use

Boss marine deck cover

Crutchfield customer from Bonney lake, WA on 4/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product looked good out of the box. Installation was easy and took little time. First time I took my boat out, I hit a wave while shutting the cover and it broke! The hinge is plastic and not well designed for marine use. I would not recommend this product!!!

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: Cheap design breaks very easily!

Bob from Kansas on 2/8/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome. Very waterproof!




Myron from Florida on 1/20/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great looking cover BUT no dimensions were given and it wouldn't fit the opening from the previous cover. If replacing an existing cover double check size before purchasing.

Pros: Nice looking

Cons: For Small opening or new installation

Crutchfield response on 1/21/2015 Good advice! We offered this customer a refund since it didn't fit. You can find the specific dimensions of this cover in the Details tab on our site.

Hands-on research

Product Research


Marine Hinged Cover: The Boss MRC5 universal water-resistant radio cover protects your car stereo receiver in marine applications (or open off-road vehicles). The MRC5's hinged cover folds down to protect your aftermarket marine head unit and folds up to allow you to access your head unit's front-panel controls.

Single-DIN or Shaft-Style: The MRC5 marine kit allows you to install most single-DIN or shaft-style receivers. In order to install a single-DIN head unit, the two shaft-style inserts of the kit must be cut out.

Foam Gasket: The MRC marine radio cover includes a foam gasket to protect the receiver from water seeping in around the frame.

Stainless Steel Mounting Hardware: The MRC5 marine radio cover is mounted using the six included screws and speed-clips. All hardware is stainless-steel and rust proof.

I can't remember it having that. It is a standard single din unit like for a vehicle, we have it in a pontoon boat. The unit didn't work with my micro Rockford and, too much distortion [ donald  Sep 24, 2018 ]
