Changing Stock Speakers In White Hawk

My brother has a new 28dsbh and was curious about upgrading the stock speakers.

Any ideas on what speakers might fit? It's probably just the indoor speakers, not the outdoor ones.

I remember reading a couple of threads dealing with changing out the stock speakers. It didn't appear to be a difficult mod. If I remember correctly, they used polk speakers.

I replaced the stock speakers in mine with the Polk Audio speakers mentioned by others. However I would suggest you take one of the speakers down and measure the opening and the speaker. In my unit the 6.5" Polks fit in the existing cutouts other than I had to trim a little but nothing substantial. You will need to buy what will fit in the existing opening unless you want to do a lot of modification. YMMV

How do you pull the speakers down? I have ceiling mounted speakers in my home and I have a little tool that you stick into the holes of the speaker cove to pull it off. I tried using the tool in the TT but the speaker cover looks to be sitting between the roof and the circular outisde speakr thing,

How do I go about getting it off?

The stock speakers in my Jayco were removed by twisting the grill counter clockwise and they just dropped off. Then there were four screws holding the speakers in the ceiling. The new speakers mounted wih the four screws going through the grill AND speaker to attach to the ceiling.

The speakers in my older Jayco were 6.5" and I replaced them with Infinity car speakers and replaced the head unit with a Pioneer, the stereo sounds way better now and I have an iPod jack.

Hmm, I just tried to give two of the grills and twist and nothing budged.

once again some where here is a thread dealing with the difficulty in getting the covers off. It may be the same thread I read about the polk speakers. Perhaps a search may reveal more on the subject. Good luck.
