I mounted this system on a 1300 R VTX Honda and it sounds great. I took a 700 mile trip, plug my phone in with Pandora on and at 70 miles per hour the system perform perfect. I would recommend this system to anyone wanting an inexpensive stereo system on their bike.

Boss MC500

April 19, 2015

Finished mounting the Audio system yesterday and took a short ride to check it out. I ride a VTX 1300 with Cobra pipes and I could hear the music clearly over the pipes although I am having problems getting the remote control unit down right. with the USB mode when I try to change volume I switch tracks or vice / versa. I think I will get it eventually.
Pretty clear on the road until you get a song you want to crank and then there is some distortion.
Would be nice to have some more low end , but is nice to hear music.
Radio could use an antenna hook up since it fades in and out a lot.
Great Value, Very satisfied

Don't expect the same sound a Harley fat boy comes with. But expect good sound up to highway speeds with a reasonable wind shield. With no fairing it's harder to get volume at high speeds. Use media monkey and hi pass filter the files before you play it. I love everything about the design of them. I custom Monte the amp to the frame of a street Bob dyna and it's a piece of art.

I tore the Pyle system (crappy sound) system out, and installed the Boss in less than 15 minutse. A single power connection, and instant music. Tried it at 65 mph on the highway, and music sounds great, radio worked fine. Start advertizing this in Biker Magazines. A sure hit.

Solid, well made.

November 4, 2013

I work in China and I wanted something good for my EBike. This unit is made in China, but I had to buy it from an American firm. It is well made, the speakers are solid and the chrome is great. The volume and amplitude are really good, I don't need more than 10 or 11 set, to hear the music. It was a bit pricey, especially the postage, although it was quick with the tracking system making it easy to find. Compared to what I have had on my Ebikes before , this unit is second to none. If you want a good system that is compact, waterproof and "Rocks" try the Boss MC 500! BTW, read the operations manual!!

May 6, 2013

Got this system as a Christmas gift and finally installed on my bike. Mounted the amp on my handlebars between the risers so that I can see the radio stations. Mounted the speakers with 1" speaker clamps instead of mounting under mirrors so that they are behind the windshield. Simple installation, took about 45 minutes. The system sounds GREAT. I have used it on the highway and can still hear my music clearly. Everyone that has seen it has complimented in a positive manner. Great product for the price. You won't be dissapointed. I use an Ipod shuffle most of the time and let me tell you this system cranks.

Is an antenna needed to receive the FM radio signal?

Downloaded 65 songs to a 2 GB SD card. the Boss MC 500 will play the first 25 songs then go back to the first song. Should it play all the songs or is there a limit of 25 songs ? It also does the same thing on my flash drive..25 and back to first..
Daniel C on Oct 1, 2014
Best Answer: Thanks to everyone that has replied. The staff at Sonicelectronix and Boss have been very helpful. The problem is not with the unit. I looked into my music deeper and found out that most of the songs were in MWA format, not MP3. The unit only plays MP3's. I am very pleased with the looks and the sound with the Boss MC500. Operators error.. Two of my riding buddies were so pleased with the unit that they bought one for their bikes. Thanks again for a great product and a great price.
