Wondering what year your 184BH is......my 2012 154BH has 3-way 6.5" - they sound pretty decent.

Well we have an additional set of speakers over the Master Bed, and, of course the outside speakers. Maybe I'll try a set in the living area first. If I read correctly, the Polk Audio DB 651 speakers fit without modification? Thanks for any information.

Quick follow-up: I got my new speakers and am planning on replacing them on our next outing. Were there clips to attached the speaker wires, or did you need to solder them?

Thanks!

As a quick follow-up... I upgrade my speakers to Polk Audio DB651's last week in preparation for our first trip of the year. The wires have clips for the terminals, so connecting is fairly easy. I didn't need to use the spacers that came with the speakers, just drilled new holes and used the screws that came with the new speakers.

On word of caution - check the speaker wired for polarity, as on one speaker the black was negative and on the other is was positive. I honestly can't tell the difference in sound based on the polarity but I wanted to get it 'right'.

The new speakers sound so much better!

No idea on a sub-woofer. I wouldn't know where to put it and would be too worried about making my camp-neighbors angry with the noise.

Crossing wires makes the speakers out of phase...you probably wouldn't notice much with a small speaker that doesn't deliver a wide audio range

I upgraded mine to Pioneer TS-G1644R's. Huge improvement over the stock quest ones in there. These are now 6.5". Cost was $27.00 a pair.

Yep, I used that same speaker. I also used the black grills. Two of my OEM speakers of the four I changed out were damaged. The center cones were crushed and one was buzzing.

Installed the DB 651's today. Much better sound. A few surprises were:
Had to drill new holes. No big deal.
The two different connecting tabs were not going to work. Cut off and soldered new.
The gasket. On first speaker had forgotten to install before soldering, but it slips over the speaker anyway, another "no biggy".
Seeing the inside of my ceiling. Not to surprising that it is minimal. Until I've bumped this RV over rough road a time or two will I feel comfortable that the screws caught wood.
Great suggestion on speakers, thanks for the info.
Man those OEM speaker grills were a b*%$ to remove, but the old fashion paint can opener was the trick!

I was pleasantly surprised to find decent 6.5" 3-way speakers in my 2012 Jayflight SWIFT....last thing I expected to see when I popped the speaker covers off.
