Any audiophiles out there?

We just finished our first weekend in our 2011 314 BHDS. Asided from the non-swiveling TV issue that I mentioned a week ago, we loved the TT. However, I'm a bit of an "audio snob" and was not real pleased with the sound quality of the speakers - indoor or outdoor. I know that the Jensen unit that comes with the TT is average at best, and could benefit from additional power via a good amp, but I was curious if any of you have swapped out the speakers in your campers for higher quality ones. What size are the factory cut outs? What brands have speakers that fit, both inside and out? Any feedback is appreciated.

Happy Camping!

Not only is the sound not that great, The FM reception is downright lousy and it has an exterior roof antenna. I can only receive the closest of stations. The radio in my garage with just a dipole antenna picks up way better then that thing does.

I have a new 28BHS. Haven't tried the speakers yet but if the system really does sound that bad I will for sure be upgrading.

I am a BIG "audiophile" and work in the business, but I have not upgraded my speakers in the TT yet....

I do not have outside speakers on the TT, but I have a FM transmitter and a powered speaker that is wireless. I use this as my "Outside Speaker System".

It would be very expensive for most people, but I got it for a good price as an employee. Most people that hear it, say it is better than their "Outside Speakers".

If you would like to talk about my set-up, please PM me or e-mail me and I would be happy to help.

I am not ready to cut holes in my trailer sides for speakers since I have this current set-up. :hihi:

I have thought the same thing. I was going to take pictures of my speakers and go to Best Buy or my local Audio store. I am sure you can do the same and simply swap the speakers.

I recently bought a Bose radio that can actually work without the power cord so it's perfect for camping. I am not sure if I will replace the interior speakers...

The speakers in our trailer work just fine. I really like the outside speakers, now I can leave the outside player that we carry at home. We now have space for something else.

My speaker sound good. My issue is a humming while I play the tv. I have read some earlier posts discussing this issue. I guess i will have to research this issue some more.

We don't care for the sound quality with our stereo either... especially the outside speakers

I too apprciate great sound that my family room home theater provides for music and movies. The speakers in our TT provide sound, but nothing I would say I enjoy. I was thinking of getting some better car type speakers from Crutchfields for the TT system. I just don't kow if the $$ would be worth it considering the acoustic properties of a TT which is limited at best.

When I ordered my Jayco, I asked them to dispense with the outside speakers, but they left them on. Unless I am camped all by myself away from people, they will never get used. I have never understood why some campers think it is ok to play their music and annoy others around them with it.
