Need help on new speakers!

This past weekend I finally took out the brand new trailer and decided to turn on the tunes. I noticed that one of the speakers did not work. So I took the speaker off and when i shook it it started working. reinstalled it on the ceiling and five minutes later it was not working. I have the 17BH Clipper and the only problem I am seeing to replace the speakers is the washroom door opens right above the speaker. Does any one know of a good speaker that would fit there? it would be greatly appreciated!

I just replaced the crappy Jensens with a set of Kenwoods on my new 17FQ.. They are round but just a little larger in diameter.. I had to cut a little to make them fit.. They do not interfere with the door...

Thank for the response meganjoe! I called Viking for the specs on the speakers and they told me they were 5 inch diameter speakers. I would assume Joe you bought 6.5 inch. I went to amazon and found some cheap JVC's for the time being! Hopefully everything works out.

If it's a brand new unit and you want the speakers to work, why not take it back to tthe dealer for a warranty replacement?

@oxcamper the speakers are so cheap that buying new ones is actually cheaper than hooking my camper up and driving one hour there if traffic is good! I would at least spend more than twenty bucks in gas alone and eat up most of my day! Plus I think with the JVC speakers, I might get a better sound quality inside.

Speakers

I would check the crimp connections to make sure they are actually crimped tight. It may not be the crappy speakers

I attached the 12 volt battery for the first trip of the season and the ground wire fell off. I think whoever crimped the wire used a pair of tweezers.

On the last trailer, the receiver picked up stations up to 10 miles away. I ended up pulling the radio and soldering the antenna connector.

I got some great low profile Speakers from Crutchfield that fit in the cabinet bottoms AND a pioneer Multimedia receiver (no CD player). Added a subwoofer in a bottom of a cabinet with a sub amp and AM very happy.

Retrosound R-525N speakers
Pioneer MVH X370BT
