377RLBH Speakers

Looking to replace the factory speakers on our 2016 377RLBH. We don't have the camper yet but the sound in the demo unit was awful. I understand the factory receiver isn't exactly a powerhouse but I figure a set of high efficiency aftermarket drivers should make a world of difference. Does anyone know the size of the factory speakers?

I totally bypassed factory system.. Soundbar with wireless sub in living room. Soundbar with wired sub in bunk room, and Klipsh Promedia 2.1 speakers in basement storage area. Already had from previous camper so just adapted to our new unit. I won't be to our camper before you get yours though, so sorry no measurements. Congrats on your new camper!! Enjoy!

Also have roku sticks for outside TV, Bunk TV and Loft TV. So music(pandora) and movies(amazon and vudu) available at all times with our wifi connection.

Can't honesty see us ever using the system that came in camper. Maybe if it was a smart bluray player we would have? Can't believe with todays tech that Jayco (and almost all manufacturers) are still putting in DVD players, not bluray. Granted the furrion has an HDMI out so they call it HD, but it is not true HD, only upscaled..


And I must agree, the factory system leaves a lot to be desired! Even after playing around with it after our purchase, I just couldn't get any decent sound out of it. Very tinny and flat sounding if that makes sense. It's all about personal preference though and I'm sure a better quality speaker could wake it up a bit!

I tried upgrading speakers....didn't work. I ending up using a sound bar and sub. The receiver really doesn't have the power to drive a good speaker.

I figured the receiver was weak but also plan on putting one of these behind the receiver; https://www.amazon.com/Alpine-KTP-44.../dp/B003VVYL46

If I'm correct the receiver runs on 12volt so this should be able to be spliced in behind the receiver directly into the speaker wires. This will take care of getting more juice to the 4 interior speakers and combined with a new set of 4 efficient speakers should be night and day over stock.

What size speakers did you end up going with? What worked as far as fitment goes?

I tried some Polk audio speakers. The factory speaker are 6.5". I ended up just putting the factory speakers back in and using the soundbar

I listed some mods to the factory unit here: http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f3...ods-36696.html

Still not audiophile quality, but for less than $50, I have acceptable sound out of the Furrion DV1200. The stock sound settings are just about as bad as they could possibly be.....

Do you happen to know the dimensions of the box you used or a link?

My daughter introduced me to wireless BLUE TOOTH portable speakers. I use them all the time now around my Camper setup....

Easy to move around anywhere you need them and have excellent sound for me.

I used this one from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Single-Subwoo...+subwoofer+box with a Dayton Audio Sub. Box was $21 when I bought it. Got the sub for $16, The wires to use are green/green&black. Labeled for polarity. There is a small knob on the left side of the unit to adjust sub volume. Do that before putting the unit back as you cannot access it.

Not super boomy, but added enough lows to make a nice setup for the TV, and music.
