Outside speakers far quieter than inside

Hey guys-
Wondering if this is normal? I have 3 speaker button, 2 for interior zones and 1 for outside the outside ones are about 50% as loud as inside. Is there an adjustment anywhere by chance? I have the iRV 6500and the teardrop shaped speakers. Any help is appreciated!

Nope normal.

Your ears are much further from the outside speakers than the indoor ones. Plus the walls contain the sound inside making it appear louder.

Check the cones on the exterior ones. Mine were completely disintegrated from the weather but still made a bit of sound.

I noticed the outdoor speakers are much quieter than the inside ones on our trailer also.

Funny you should mention this. I was out camping this last weekend and I noticed when we ran the outside speakers only, they were actually louder inside than outside. Like was said, the outside speakers are further away, plus they are competing with a lot of outside sounds. Now if someone can tell me what the B speakers are supposed to do? Speakers A are inside and C are outside. B don't seem to do anything.

B should be the speakers over the bedroom or fifth wheel

The "B" button is for speakers in our bedroom. Of course we have the white hawk 28dsbh.

I agree, the outside ones are horrible. You almost have to double the volume level to hear them, even standing in front between the pair.

I haven't looked but they might have used different ohm speakers for inside and out. that could also cause this.

I was looking for good quality speakers to replace those and can really find any with flush mount housing. Most of the good marine speakers are designed to be sunk into a hole with only the grill cover being flush mounted.

Anybody find some?
