TV sound is horrible in the 29.5 BHDS

The speakers for the TV in the 2015 29.5BHDS are on the back of the TV (worst design ever!) and you can only hear the TV when its cranked full blast or if you open the door that the TV is mounted on.
One big problem is if its turned up you can hear the TV outside through the outdoor pantry if the door is open. Very annoying when the teens are inside watching a movie and ma and pa wanna sit outside for some peace and quiet.
I realize that you can turn off speakers to TV and use the Audio player to play sound but this plays on speakers throughout the entire rear of the camper.

Does anyone have a solution for this? Any ideas?

I see that the TV has RCA "audio out" on the rear. Has anyone tried to install an external speaker to this?

Thanks for your input!

I find any OE television that comes with a camper is usually a no name piece of garbage. The Continus brand was in my unit. The coax connector tore off the circuit board just trying to unscrew the cable. The set has been recycled.

You should be able to connect any brand soundbar to the audio OUT of the television thereby putting the speaker in front of the television.

Our TV was the same way mounted in a cabinet with the speakers to the rear. We bought a set of computer speakers and connected to the TV audio output and placed the speakers on a shelf below the TV worked great.

A new TV is a good investment. You can buy a SmartTV around $200 and up. Due to size, we bought a Samsung. Decent sound out of the TV and it will stream video when needed.

Like your factory unit, the original Jensen sound was garbage.

Ours came with a worthless Furrion TV... the sound failed on the first trip. We replaced it with a 32 inch Samsung Smart TV (WiFi built in). $ 179.00 at Walmart... great sound!

You could run your RCA audio out to your AUX in of your stereo. Amazon sell RCA to 3.5 mm cables...at $4 it's a cheap option. https://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express.../dp/B0002KR1OG

TV Sound Output to Cabin Speakers...

Yes, you can have your TV audio played out through the cabin speakers. All you need to do is move the RCA audio cable on the back of the TV to the 'Audio Output' jacks. Then, select AUX mode on your Furrion stereo. Voila! You should now have TV sound played on your cabin speakers!

Have you checked to see if it is hooked up to the stereo system already? Mine came from the dealer already connected.

I just turn on the TV and the stereo (both Furrion products in my 2016 29.5 BHDS), select AUX on the stereo, and then select which speakers I want the sound to go to. The sound is quite good when I use both the A and B speaker zones.
