Outside speakers sound bad

I have a 2011 Greyhawk 31 FS. It has two outside speakers that just do not sound right to me. When I turn on the outside speakers the vocal track on any music is very faint, and the sound is just not very good. I can't belive this is normal. Does anyone else use their outside speakers and do they sound better than mine do?

I have a 2008 Melbourne. The outside speakers are actually decent. Not sure if the Greyhawk uses the same radio.

No outside speakers on on our X17z but I will say the inside speakers are pretty poor at best. Recently installed a Sirius Sat radio and it's much better then reg radio for sound quality but really.. these are poor. New speakers are on the mod list for sure.

Are you planning on running new wire or use the existing wire? I have not looked at the speaker wires in the current unit but it was very light wire in previous RVs.

Likely just original wiring. They're very short runs.

Speaker

Why be concerned about this, Jayco has a 2 year warranty, let the dealer figure it out.

In our 32BHDS the outside speakers work great! I was able to hear them by the fire with no prob.

Yeah Hawk, I would like the dealer to figure it out. They said, "well, if you put the fade all on the back speakers and the balance all on the right speaker you can kind of hear the vocals". They tried to tell me since they work at all, the warranty won't cover. You don't have to have a very good ear to know it's not right.....

Try to take a video with decent sound of the speakers in action vs inside speakers and send them to Jayco service direct. You might have better luck going direct for a warranty auth number for the dealer to do the work.

If you have access to another speaker then I would take one out and hook up another to see if it is in the speaker or the stereo. If it is the speakers then this would be a good time to just replace them with a much better speaker and not worry about having the dealer put in another pair that you will not be happy with.
