Anyone installed a sound system in their rig & if so how'd you tackle that project?


We have a Bose Wave Radio Sound System

that sits in the center of the cabover of our Class C.

Works well and sounds GREAT!!!

I'm installing an older Bose Acoustimas 2.1 speaker system w/ sub, pointing back from the bunk area, powered by a Yamaha AV receiver, hooked in to a cd/dvd player and my TV. Powered from the inverter, obviously. Home theater/music system. Basically just moving one of my home systems in.

At least, that's my plan, which is why I'm commenting here. I'm looking for opinions.

Overkill? Dumb-sounding? Should I just stick with a 12volt car system for sound? I do like good sound, and I think my solar will keep up.

We just bought two Bose Wave4 music systems at 1/2 price from QVC and HSN and are thrilled with the sound on CD and FM radio modes, AM is OK. The AC power cord is also the FM antenna. They also have alarm clock features. If you have AC available where camped, or an inverter, playing CD's is my recommendation. FM and AM reception in the boonies may vary a lot. The unit is relatively small and easily portable but the sound is great, I didn't believe the ads for years. I am also playing You Tube music videos through the Bose using an add-on Bluetooth Wavecast receiver ($25) from my amazon Flame tablet,( WiFi needed for that) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Most (practically all) dash radios would have outputs for four speakers: the front ones in the doors, and rear ones that may be going nowhere. Connecting into the rear speaker outputs is one not too hard and not expensive way of getting some music back in the RV.

Mine (older Coachmen) came with speakers in the overhead cabinets above the couch connected to the dash radio. I replaced the speakers with ones that are a bit better and had not fallen down into the bottom of the cabinet from their proper cutouts.
