How do you listen to music when you camp?

We all know the stock speakers in the Jayco 5th wheel line, and I am sure the other lines are horrible as well. Without dealing with replacing the stock speakers, how do you all listen to music?




If you answered #4 which model and how does it sound?

It's for background music if we play anything at all. The cheap speakers are fine for that. If I could or wanted to play it loud enough to need something better, I'd be disturbing everyone else.

We just use a CANZ speaker and an iPod. Other than using the house speakers on the side of the TT.

We use a small Bose speaker and iPhone. Sound is fantastic - as expected from Bose

Bose Sound is amazing and very easy to hear even at low volume levels (not to disturb the neighbors).

We generally only listen in the morning while lying in bed, or if severe weather is expected. We NEVER listen while we are outside and don't use our outside speakers at all.

I'm a big music fan and have hundreds (maybe a thousand) CDs and records and mp3s at home. But when we go camping, it is to do things out of the norm that we do at home. So little music and no TV (don't have one in the trailer, don't miss it).

When it rains, we do a lot of reading. Peaceful and quiet.

#1 & #4.

If not listening to the radio through the factory speakers, we may use a SoundFreak BT or our friends have a Bose BT speaker also.

We also have an Onkyo BT at the house. Not sure we will take that with though.

I have considered replacing the speakers, at least the outside ones.... I do have a set of marine speakers bnib, should see if they will fit the outside speaker opening..... Is a set of MB Quart marine speakers overkill??? Lol

I don't listen to music when in a campground or at least my own. There is usually more than enough coming from other campsites that seem to think the world likes their choice in "noise".

Off of Soapbox!

I can't vote, only because I don't have crappy speakers in my pop up, but do have a head unit and 6.5" speakers. I bought my stereo and added it.

I hope all of you that use the Bluetooth speakers don't have a stereo in your campers, what a waste of money, should of spent the money to upgrade your speakers, you would be surprised how much difference it would make.
