4 Reasons Why You Need To Buy Boss Audio…


…Ok, maybe NOT “You”, but there is a time and place to consider Boss Audio. No, really, there is. Before you put your internet-police badge on and go on an epic interweb tirade, hear us out. It is no secret that Boss Audio products aren’t intended to win competitions with or meant to be used to build a high fidelity system. Admittedly boss products have historically been perceived to be entry level. However, we noticed on a recent factory tour in their Oxnard, CA location, they are constantly using r&d and testing to produce better products with low defective rates. Because of this, Boss Audio is always bathed in a sea of negativity, and those associated with them get a nice dose of hate themselves – for the record, we’re prepared. Still, there is a huge misunderstanding out there as to why retailers carry them, people buy them, and why they are still around. The obvious answer is that there is a market for that product. But who exactly is “that” market? Well, here are 4 Reasons When Why You Need To Buy Boss Audio.

A quick note from the editor: If at all possible, always save up to get into higher end product. In car audio, the mantra of “you get what you pay for” has held strong, so always take that to heart when shopping around. If you need some help working within your budget, give our Sales Team a call!

1Elephant In The Room


Let’s get this out of the way first: The obvious reason to consider Boss Audio products is that they are very Inexpensive. Everyone wants the “best possible system” but doesn’t want to pay “best-possible-system-money”, so we often end up going for a “Budget Build” instead. For just under $300 we can put together a respectable Single 12″ Subwoofer setup. By NO means are we going to be getting the “4000W” that it says on the box, but we will be getting around 25% of that figure, which still gives us an “above-modest” system. This setup would cost us – potentially – anywhere from 25% to 50% more if we change the logo to a “familiar” brand. As long as we understand what we’re getting, that means the same power for less money. Where most people go wrong, however, is when thinking that they are getting “4000W” from their inexpensive $179.99 amplifier. They just don’t know that to get a Real 4Kw amplifier, it’s going to cost north of $1,000. There is an argument to be made against ‘why do they put that on the box’, but we aren’t going to get into that because until there is a governing body to hold All manufacturers accountable, we are going to continue seeing A Lot of manufactures do this. The best we can do as consumers/retailers/enthusiasts is put the knowledge of what the product can really do out there. That knowledge is plentiful; one needs only to look at the reviews on our website, we don’t filter anything. Moving on. The reality is, we all don’t have the luxury of putting together a competition-grade system together. Most of us want to simply enjoy music in our vehicles without breaking the bank. That is the main market that goes for Boss Audio equipment.

2n00b Friendly


No matter how much information and knowledge there is out there – and , trust me, there is A LOT: Link , Link , Link , Link – there are endless amount of n00bie enthusiasts that just don’t get the concept of putting together a system. Luckily, being fairly “entry level”, Boss Audio products tend to be simple. Seldom is there a Boss Audio amplifier with a bunch of switches, knobs, sliders, flux capacitors, etc… that are difficult to understand or adjust. Instead, they often feature a very basic bank of settings. Their subwoofers & speakers are all built in the most traditional fashion, with easy Terminals and ….well, that’s as far as the user experience goes. If you’re shopping for a beginner or are a beginner yourself, embrace the n00bieness and start off with a simple inexpensive setup. Learn the basics, start small, and get to know the differences in the wide range of products available. Of course you want the high end awesome stuff!!, but do you know how to use it?? If the answer is “yes” then have it, but if it’s a “no” then start small and learn some stuff.

3Selling Your Car?


It is a tough feeling when you have to sell your car that has a “slappin’ system” in it. It’s even tougher to sell a car that has No stereo or Speakers equipped. (ask me how I know) . The “you get to enjoy the sounds of the road” angle doesn’t go very far. So, why not replace your system with some inexpensive alternatives? Even the most inexpensive options available in the Boss Audio line up will surely be a step up – if not the equivalent – to the OEM system. A small investment and you get to keep Your awesome system, while keeping your buyer content with an “all new sound system”. Truth is, that buyer may very well have done the same thing anyway, and picked up a few Boss Audio products. We don’t suggest going with the *ahem* awesome skull speakers with the light up eyes, but a little something is better than nothing. Hey, who’s to say Skulls with Light Up Eyes don’t give you a few extra unicornwatts?

4FREE Extended Warranty


Who doesn’t like free stuff?! When you purchase a qualifying Boss Audio product from an “Authorized Platinum Online Dealer”, you instantly get a free extended warranty on the product you purchased. Lets continue the honesty here; Car Audio is built to be abused. We might even say that it is built to fail. When you put the key in the ignition, what is usually the first thing to turn on? The Radio + Speakers! So, isn’t it safe to say that the #1 most used thing inside your vehicle – aside from the ignition…um doors, seats, mirrors….ok, maybe not the #1 – is the Radio & Speakers? So from the second you begin enjoying your music, you are already diminishing the life of the component. Well, with Boss Audio products, you can rest assured that you will , at least , have a way to replace said component with a new one should it finally decide to make its way to Car Audio heaven, or the other place depending on your view of Boss Audio. The point is, you pay absolutely Nothing for extra coverage on your product. That, in of itself, is enough reason to consider picking up one of their products.
