Soundbar Replacement

For those of you who replaced the iTrax soundbar in your coach, what did you replace it with. I'm not having a lot of luck finding a quality 32" bar that will fit that space, Bose makes one that will fit but we don't really want to spend nearly $400 if we don't have to.

I'm looking also.
I can find some 2.0 systems that fit, but they don't sound good enough.
I have a 5.1 with wireless sub and rear speakers from my old rig, but of course the sound bar is about a foot too wide to fit the Berkshire.

If I run across anything I'll report back here.

I replaced with a Polk surround bar 6000. Fits in the space great and secured it with Velcro. It also has a wireless sub and sounds great. Got it on sale at Newegg for less than $300.

Swapped my RCA with a LG 2.1-Channel Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer
NB3530A use the fiber optic cable and place the sub near the sofa for a shakin good time its a little longer but looks great and what an improvement
Sony is just too proud and too big and price was good.

Well thanks for the push. I have been looking at sound bars and with the experts advice I ordered the Polk 6000. Less that 300 from Amazon.

At 39.4" I think the soundbar would stick out past the cabinet space where ours sits.

Ebay has a factory refurbised Polk 5000 for $234. The 5000 has bluetooth. Sent the info to hubby for his final decision but that looks like a good option. Thanks

The only Samsung 'soundboard' I could find is 40 inches.

Too wide for my 390 RB

I have not done anything to the front television however I have swapped out the bedroom TV with a much larger one as well as installed an LG Blu-ray and a Philips sound bar with subwoofer. The total cost including a new articulating arm was under 300.

This allows we to either watch DVD from front or rear as well as TV from antenna.

Money well spent.

For me personally, mine was not very loud and the sound wasn't very good.

Poor sound and a lot of static. We just got a sound bar at Costco, with a subwoofer and two surround speakers. So much better than that iTrax bar.

Costco has a great 34 inch Samsung that I mounted under my TV that's 40 inch I replaced. Much better sound and its Bluetooth to iPhone for music going down road. Plenty of sound
