I don`t have outside speakers on mine and do not miss them. But I would like the radio inside to pick up some stations!

Hey guys! I'm picking up my 314 BHDS next month and it does have the outside speakers. If I ever do actually use them it would be for my daughters "high school musical and Justin Bieber music". It will never be loud enough to annoy others. I do understand what Tom is saying as we have camped next to a younger crowd that BLASTED the outside speakers just about all weekend long. I would never intentionally annoy anyone, especially with the music she listens to!!

I like good sound and TT sound is not good sound )), I would suggest to the mfgs that they provide the option of wiring being installed and then we could install our equipment. I've got an awesome Yamaha 7.2 dolby system at home and miss it when I'm out on the road.

I have a fairly powerful home stereo system tri-amped, with 900 watts, EQ crossover etc. basically a mobile DJ setup, hooked to 2 two way 10" cabs and 2 two way 12" cabs and a 15" powered sub. It would take alot of space and weight to replicate my choice of what "sounds decent"
The system in the TT is lacking, but, it is what it is. I just take my lap top or iPod loaded with music and "rough it."

I got rid of the tv hum issue by hooking up a mini 3.5 to the headphone out on side of tv and hooking up to AV Rear on sound unit. Works great.

We love our 2011 28BHS, but when I heard the sound system (inside and out) for the first time, I just cringed. It was aweful I guess you could say I'm an audiophile and have Paradigms for my home theater, so that wasn't going to fly. I immediately checked out the speakers inside and took some quick measurements. They're just standard 6" car stereo speakers similar to the ones you'd install in a car door kick panel. I went over to Best Buy and checked out their selection figuring I could keep the cost under $100 and easily make the sound 10x better. I ended up with a nice pair of Sonys that sound great! That was part one.

Part two was to put my previous home theater receiver (a nice JVC RX-888) in the cubby above the Jensen and wire it to those speakers. It fit like a charm. I had to drill a hole from behind the Jensen up through the shelf to the cubby to run the speaker wires, but that was the hardest part. There's a sticker on the back of the Jensen that gives the wire colors and signal descriptions. From there it's just a matter of snipping the speaker wires to the Jensen and 3M Quick Connecting some extensions to reach up to the receiver. That was part two.

And for the third and final step, I wired up a sub to the receiver in the cabinet to the left of the Jensen. I happened to have a passive sub enclosure laying around that fit perfect. Had to drill a hole from behind the Jensen through to the cabinet to fish the wires through from the receiver, but the results were fantastic! The cabinet resonates perfect with the sub to provide nice bass without being too loud outside.

The whole mod has been a complete success. The audio in the camper sounds great now and has greatly enhanced our experience. Crabman, I replaced the antenna plug connecting to the Jensen with a standard 75 ohm coax connection and connected it to the receiver. The radio works great and I haven't had any reception issues.

PS - Probably the coolest part though came after I installed the Apple Airport Express, got it talking with our MiFi, and connected it via an optical cable to the receiver. AirPlay is in the house! Whoohoo! Now we can stream Pandora from our iPhones through the camper sound system! That is truely cool

Learn the words and you won't have to hum while singing along to the TV(running and ducking).

So do you think the problem with my reception is with the Jensen receiver, the antenna connector or both? I can only pick up the closest of stations.

I'm also a bit fussy about how my music sounds. The speakers in the living room area of the 330RLTS are all in the wrong place. I'm using my desktop computer at home to play my music through a Logitech 5.1 speaker system (cheaper than 2.0 Bose and sound much better) but it wouldn't be easy to set up a 5.1 in the 330RLTS because of the slides so I'll probably set up several 2.1 systems (two channels plus subwoofer/center channel). One set would be at the computer desk I'm going to put in, another set for listening from the couch, another set in the bedroom. I would turn on only the amp for the system. Or I might get ambitious and try to route the speaker wires to the slides and and put in 5.1.

I never listen to the radio anymore, even when traveling. Very few stations carry the kind of music I like and pretty much all of the have too much gumflapping anymore.

I also have no plans to use the outside speakers. I don't like it when people subject me to their music (or whatever you want to call it) so it wouldn't be fair for me to do so. If I want music outside, I'll get wireless headphones.
