It is an 800-watt peak power weatherproof speaker and amplifier system for ATVs, UTVs and motorcycles. Its sound profile has incredible depth and detail. For music lovers who also enjoy off-roading, this is the perfect gadget to have.
In this review piece, we are going to analyze the technology and design of the product. We are also going to study the audio performance and assess how well it is suited to outdoor playing. So without further ado, let’s dive in and get straight to the specifics.
BOSS Audio MC600B Weatherproof ATV Speaker :
Technology And Design :
The BOSS Audio MC600B is a Bluetooth speaker system complete with a power amplifier and remote control. It has a pair of 3-inch chrome full-range speakers shaped like bullets. It includes an installation kit with mounting brackets, screws and wiring harnesses. The mounts are adjustable and fit 0.75 to 1.25 inch handlebars in ATVs, motorcycles and scooters. They also work with roll cages and overhead bars in UTVs and side-by-sides.
The amplifier and the remote control are externally wired. They come with the requisite cables. The multi-function in-line remote has back-lit buttons for play, pause, Bluetooth, track change and volume up/down. The back-lit feature makes night-time use easy. And since it is wired, you don’t have to worry about misplacing it. We suggest you install the remote close to the steering wheel or secure it to the handlebar so it is within reach when you are riding.
The speakers work with all 12 volt vehicles including ATVs, UTVs, motorcycles, cruiser bikes and other 2-wheelers. The operational power is 12 volt DC and the acceptable range is 10 to 16 volts. The set has a simple DIY installation. All you need to do it plug them into the 12 volt power source and connect your sound device and you are ready to start playing music.
The best thing about the BOSS Audio MC600B is that it is impervious to mild rain, moisture and fog. It is weatherproof and is designed to perform in all kinds of terrain. It can take a beating in outdoor dusty environments like dirt roads, deserts and wooded jungle trails. It is also protected against sunlight and can be used in the sun for prolonged periods without any issues. Having said that, the speakers, the amp and the remote control must not be hosed down or exposed to heavy rain. They are only resistant to low-pressure water splashes and are not fully waterproof.
The other advantage of the MC600B is that it has both Bluetooth and AUX connectivity. You just have to hook up your smart phone over Bluetooth to enjoy Wireless Music Streaming straight from Spotify and Pandora. If your sound source lacks Bluetooth, or if your Bluetooth connection is sketchy and you’d like to use a wired method, the 3.5mm auxiliary input port comes to your rescue. It lets you plug in any device that has a 3.5mm auxiliary output jack, including MP3 players, smart phones, iPods and iPhones.
Each speaker has a diameter of 3 inches and a depth of 3.625 inches. The height goes beyond 3 inches when attached to the mounting clamp.
Standard warranty of the system is 1 year. It can be extended by another 2 years.
Sound Quality :
The BOSS Audio MC600B has big sound. It is armed with a massive 800-watt max power external amplifier that promises to rock your outdoor adventure sports experience. It is a compact 2-channel Class A/B amp which is better at producing nuanced sound than traditional Class A amps. The amp has a special linear circuitry which eliminates distortions. It also enhances the power output and quality of the audio. It strengthens the original audio signal, and makes the final output cleaner and more accurate.
The speakers are 3-inches in size. They are fitted with full-range drivers that offer a very realistic reproduction of the original sound. You hear clear high notes, beefy midrange and deep bass with clear vocals and instruments. The speakers are capable of processing sound within a frequency range of 80 Hz to 15 KHz which is sufficient for regular outdoor listening. They have a signal-to-noise ratio of >85dB and a total harmonic distortion of < 0.01%. Channel separation is >50 dB.
