Getting tired of that worn-out sound system in your boat? With this combo deal from Boss Marine, you can upgrade your audio without emptying your wallet. The MCK1309WB.64 package includes a marine-rated digital media receiver, two sets of rugged 6-1/2" marine speakers, a 41" dipole antenna, and even mounting hardware. If you're looking for a solid, basic system that's tough enough for life on the water, this package offers a lot of value for the dollar.

A rugged receiver built for boating

Boss designed the MR1309UAB receiver for for marine use, with a UV-resistant exterior that resists fading and a conformal-coated PC board that resists corrosion. The fold-down faceplate features an 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 the included hard plastic carrying case (a soft case is sold separately). One last piece of good news — this radio will retain your presets through the winter when the battery is disconnected.

Value and versatility

Built-in Bluetooth® lets you enjoy the convenience of wireless music streaming from your iPod®, iPhone®, or Android smartphone, but that's not the only way to enjoy your tunes. Listen to 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 dipole AM/FM antenna is made from durable, flexible rubber, so you can install it out of sight. If you want to connect an external amp, the MR1309UAB sports a pair of 2-volt RCA outputs.

Speakers included

The four Boss MR6W marine speakers in thie package are a great match for the MR1309UAB. These durable 6-1/2" dual cone speakers provide plenty of low-end punch and excellent clarity. The rugged woofer features a water-resistant design that provides splash protection and durability, not to mention style.

Installation notes: This marine radio is water-resistant, but we recommend mounting it in a water-resistant enclosure or using a cover for best performance.

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.

This marine digital media receiver will not play CDs.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After looking through reviews for a affordable replacement stereo and speaker set this one seems to check all the boxes for me. After purchasing a used Hurricane SunDeck Sport that had previously had the radio stolen from it I wanted to get some sound into the boat as soon as possible. This did the job and was quickly shipped by Crutchfield. The package comes with everything you need other than connectors from the head unit to the speaker wires and power supply in the boat so pick those up before you head out for the install. The install was fast and straightforward with the included instructions and the Bluetooth function was super easy to set up. For the cost of this package, it's more than adequate.

Great package. Great price. I Installed it in my 17 ft runabout. Loud enough to hear at high speed I added 12 inch subs to complete the system. Bluetooth works great. Perfect for what I needed. Remote is a little hard to push the buttons but once you get used to it works fine

Pros: Clear loud sound. Great price.

Cons: Remote is a little tough to push the buttons

For the price this package can't be beat. Radio works great has minimal settings to adjust the audio but again for the price you cant beat it. Speakers aren't half bad i would rank them around 50% for sound quality. But again for the price and what you get its completely worth it.

Pros: Price All one package

Cons: Limited adjust-ability

Cons: none

Awesome product for the price!

Steve O. from West Chester, OH on 8/23/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This stereo was purchased to replace an old factory cassette deck in a 1997 pontoon. This a a nice looking stereo and has easy operation. I mainly purchased this stereo for the aux input and Bluetooth so I could play my iPod. I was curious if this unit would allow me to skip through the songs using the unit itself instead of doing it on my iPod and it does! Great stereo and the customer service with this company is absolutely awesome. I would purchase this unit again and would recommend to a friend.

Pros: Great price and all around good stereo!

Cons: None

Boater guy from Michigan on 7/10/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought the package to replace an old an failing unit in my pontoon boat. Shipment came as expected and box included everything as expected plus a very nice antenna and 3.5 mm connector. Install was easy and everything was as advertised. The sound from the unit and speakers is a significant upgrade and will satisfy everyone but the most serious audiophiles. Good loudness and range on speakers (crisp and clear). The Bluetooth has been great and has excellent range (50' from boat with my wife's Droid phone). Only issue is that sometimes the BT gets confused if both my wife and I's phone are near and it doesn't know which one to connect with so it connects to neither. Not a big deal and I would recommend it to anyone.

Pros: As advertised, good sound, great reception (pulled in additional FM stations that I could not get before)

Cons: BT works well but not flawlessly

Good product for price

Thomas M. from Paris, Texas on 6/21/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Hesitant about this purchase due to the low price but was looking for something water resistant that wouldn't break the bank. This unit fit the bill. Also has a better warranty than most others that have a higher price tag. As far as sound, it has a decent sound and the Bluetooth function works well and is easy to set up. I would recommend this unit for anyone wanting a good unit at a good value.

Pros: Price, warranty, ease of setup, and it is a complete package with matched speakers.

Cons: To soon to tell as I've only had it installed a couple of days. Time will tell.

Horrible marine radio

Bdav1021 from Covington,Tn on 6/4/2016

I wish I didn't have to give this radio a star. Cause it does not deserve one. Has not worked right since we got it. Been 4 months since we bought it and it won't work anymore. Will never spend money on another supposed marine radio from boss

Pros:

Cons:

Great product for the money!

TJ from Seattle, WA on 5/19/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed this unit in my older Bayliner boat and I was impressed with how compact and light the unit was. The old Dual brand head unit needed a support bracket at the back, this one doesn't. The speakers also replaced some Dual marine 6.5" speakers, and there is a very obvious improvement in sound quality and volume from this unit. Crutchfield had the best price on this package, and I'm very happy with the purchase overall.

Pros: Everything you need in one box - even a 3.5mm stereo aux in cable, and a new marine antenna Light weight unit makes mounting easier (no support brackets needed most likely) Decent sound quality and volume from the included speakers

Cons: Screen is hard to see in bright sun or off angle Balance/fader and bass/treble adjustments are abrupt (going from say 2 to 3 is a large change)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love the radio and speakers on my bayliner. Bluetooth accessibility makes keeping my phone safe from falling in the water or getting wet while the music plays uninterrupted.

Pros: The Bluetooth feature is awesome to keep your phone safe while on the water. Had radios before that skipped while hitting the waves, this one doesn't skip at all.

Cons: Wish the radio had a little more power to the speakers.. But I can live with it

Boss Marine System

Russ H. from Nashville, TN on 12/24/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just purchased this system for my small runabout boat replacing an old cassette player from 20 years ago. Would have gladly paid more for just the main unit-this price was half of the total which included 4 speakers. Great system. Bluetooth and aux input allow me to use any device. USB not working properly but I think that is a problem with my phone, not the system. Easy to install, Highly recommend.

Pros: Bluetooth pairing super easy, aux input for added flexibility. Cell phone mic in system when using Bluetooth turns system into a large speakerphone. RCA jacks on back for future expansion in addition to standard speaker wiring. Super light weight. Old system I replaced required a rear support bracket, this was so light it didn't need it. Solid instructions.

Cons: Wish printing on controls was larger.
