I'm sure we all have different OUTSIDE SPEAKERs setups.. What I see here on your setup almost looks like an add-on thing haha...

Mine are built-in in the exterior wall and have the weather proof type cones and sound really great...

We actually ended up getting portable BLUE TOOTH speakers from AMAZON and WALMART... Being able to move the speakers around the outside seating areas was what we wanted to have...

Guess it really depends on what you want to have...

I've seen some brands mount the speakers down in the lower skirting which means you don't have to have a potential leak in your sidewall. Our TT has 'em in the ends of the awning tube/arm support.

We have the same style. I have not looked at them closely to check for upgrade options but I want to.

I went the same way that RoyBrady went using a portable bluetooth speaker. Mine is a JBL and sounds much better than the "things" that are on my outside wall. And yes, you can walk it all around to the fire pit, shore etc...

I think that I will upgrade my interior ceiling speakers tho. I need to hear Marvin Gaye with fidelity!

Oh and to add to my last post I found that the wiring for my speakers are all jacked up. The outside speakers are the right channel of zone 2 and the master bedroom is the left channel! While I'm in the sound biz I'm not really that picky - but this wiring makes listening to the beatles with vocals panned a real challenge!! Go Jayco!

My Jay Flight 21QB has the tiny speakers on the top of the awning posts. Yeah, why even bother. Then the inside speakers are really well placed. Right channel in the back by the dinette and couch area, and the left channel by the bed in the front of the trailer. Really?? Needless to say, the sound sucks inside or outside the trailer. The only good thing for me is that I don't listen to the radio much at all while camping.

Your setup is like mine in the 23RB. 2 really poor speakers in the awning arms (one of which hasn't worked since shortly after buying the trailer) and two inside. One in the center of the living area and one over the bed.

The sound system sucks. Fortunately, I'm not an audiophile. If I were, I'd rip all the factory stuff out, and start fresh.

I recently have added another small pocket BLUETOOTH speaker to my setup... These are called ILUV portable speakers from AMAZON. Thin enough to slip into your shirt pocket and still have great fidelity... I actually can have one ILUV pocket speaker in one shirt pocket monitoring some bluetooth audio channels and another ILUV portable speaker in my other shirt pocket monitoring a different bluetooth channel...


google image

I really have several things coming from my POPUP Trailers being FM radio, Ham Radio, Police/Rescue Internet radio scanners, etc

Kinda hard to mix all of those through a single BLUETOOTH arrangement so having two or three audio channels going all the time is what works for me when I am sitting around the fire pit...

The only mixing problem is my Truck sync to my cellphone when I get close to the truck. It seems to take priority and that makes me have to reset a couple of mu bluetooth channels haha...

When I get into my truck and turn on the ignition key the truck sync immediately grabs my cell phone using BLUETOOTH. Then my BROADCASTIFY circuits need reset in order for me to also pass along some of these bluetooh channels to the master speaker setup I have inside the truck...

After a couple of resets I'm running down the road listening to all my bluetooth channels again...
