Personally we use our stereo system for some quiet tunes (usually via the outside speakers) while cooking, eating or playing cards. I wouldn't want to create a speaker system that would push my music onto the site of the guy next to me. A subwoofer, even a small one, could potentially throw sound to my neighbors site.

Don't get me wrong, I had a sub in my previous truck and am still contemplating installing it in my current truck... but I know how annoying it can be to listen to someone else's bass when I am not listening to music.

I would encourage you to be considerate of your neighbors (not suggesting that you wouldn't be...) and consider abandoning your sub. At a bare minimum, if you get one then test it out in a quiet setting so you know how quiet it has to be so as to not encroach upon someone else's ears.

I agree spoon. I couldn't imagine having a sub in a camper at any camp ground. We just did our first few weeks in the new camper and really didn't use the outdoor speakers. But my entire family loves music so someone always had the radio on inside. I did find the speaker placement an issue and still find it odd that each speaker selection isnt in stereo. So the sound output is horrible.

I have to agree. The stereo in my new 29.5BHDS is no where near the sound quality as my 2009 wilderness that had a Jensen System. Has anyone used / purchased the soundbar/sub-woofer from Furrion? Replaced the outside speakers yet? I see the 2017 are more flush mount where my 2016 are more of a rasied cone and sound horrible!

Why not use one system for outside speakers installed in a storage bay and another inside with the F/R as the two zones?

Adding a sub, amp and quality speakers is not always about making it loud. The reality is the sound quality from many factory systems is very flat. Yes amps and subs will make it loud. But you don't need to have it loud to get the effect of the upgrade.

We aren't saying we want to boom out the campground. But what we do want is clean full sound both when listening to music and watching TV.

I have a pretty good system in my truck. Here is the install, all new door and dash speakers as well. All Rockford Fosgate. You can hear the truck from blocks away...if I want you to. But mostly I ride with the windows up, AC on and volume fairly low.

I get the same crisp clean full sound at low volumes as I do at high volumes.

This is my tow vehicle. 2008 Escalade EXT. Only thing in the stereo system that is still factory is the head unit.

Looks like no more 8ft load bed for you

I had an 07 Avalanche and often dropped the mid-gate so I could put 8ft loads in out of the weather.

I never used the mid gate anyway. I also had an Avalanche for many years before this Caddy. I use the bed of the truck more like the trunk of a car.
