If anyone is looking for good outdoor speakers you can find used sets of the Klipsch outdoor speakers like AW-525 that are both good in range with respectable bottom end and very good efficiency of 92+db/watt. Yea they are not tiny, but if you ARE boondocking and stuff and want to rockout, they are a good choice and weather doesn't bother them.

For stereo amplification I'd recommend a small class D digital 12v amplifer such as the Lepai 2020+ which is the size of a thick paperback and puts out nearly 20w RMS with excellent sound for less than $30 from parts express. Some folks use them for driving home speakers on high-end systems they sound so good. Some other ones come with bluetooth something I'm looking into. If you do get one buy a decent powersupply some are sold w/o.

I made a solar-rechargable sound system that rocks with this sort of thing not just for the TT but we've used it for all sorts of things.

What about this option.

Pull stereo out and hook wires up to B output Run the m down the wall and into the compartment under the bed. Roll the wire and speakers up in there and pull out and set up through the access panel when we arrive? Easy Peasy, no cutting or drilling

That would work, if you go this way, I'd wire to a jack plate in the storage area and put plugs on the wires to the speakers. That way a break in the speaker wires will be simple to fix

Do you guys think I will be able to feed the wire down the inside of the wall between the dinette and the bunks?

Don't know about 2010 models but current marketing on Jayco's site says the walls are full of foam insulation

You could get some office / computer supply wire management conduit shaped like a U and it can be stuck in place using double sided tape as they make product for desks, could blend in corner on the back side by bunks with only small hole through bulkhead, leaving exterior wall intact.

I have a Bose blue tooth speaker and it sounds awesome. I can also connect with a jack to my iPod.

I like it so I can move it around to where I am in the campsite and keep the music within the confines of my site. Rarely can you hear it beyond my site as I face the speaker towards the unit. Hardly ever use my outdoor speakers.
X2 - we have a couple of Bluetooth speakers, one inside and one for outside. The inside is a Panasonic SC-NP10 and the outside is an Ion Road Rocker (small, 8 inch cube). They both work great for listening to music via phones, tablets, iPods, etc. The Ion is rechargeable, portable and sounds great. Like 3'enough, we're diligent about the volume and careful not to disturb others.

But you still need speakers, 120V and 12v supply to drive the Rocketfish...
