Concertone Speaker Volume

Hello all,

We have an issue with the volume level for the outside speakers on our unit. The inside speakers, both in the living area and in the bedroom, have lots of volume. I can set the volume level to 6 and get plenty of sound.

The outside speakers are a different story. I need to push the volume to 22 or more to get decent volume on the 2 outside speakers.

I removed one of the outside speakers to ensure there was no obivous wiring problem.

Any thoughts? It just does not seem right.

This is an issue in our camper as well. If I put the outside speakers up loud enough to listen to music, the volume inside will drive everyone outside.

There is a thread here (don't have time to locate it), that discusses some work around solutions.

We are in the same boat as Tom and Herk. Been that we since day 1 with our TT. We have just learned to adjust, and only run the indoor or the outdoor speakers.

I had the same issue on my 2009 Flagstaff Superlite. I was told by the dealer and FR Rep the outside speakers are a marine grade with less watts.
