Radio speaker

We have bought a 2015 Forester 3051S in late December. We have only made a couple of trips in it and love it, but we do have a small leak over a window and an issue with the jacks. Waiting for parts for the jacks and will have both issue addressed.

My question is with a speaker that I found while checking the leak. The speaker is fairly large and attached to the floor under the sofa. It seems to have about 10' of wire attached to it, but the rca connections are not connected to anything. I have heard on this site about subwoofers under the sofa, but not sure what it should be connected to. We do have a tv and radio on the outside of the motorhome directly behind the speaker.

Love scanning this site, hope someone can help me!!

I'm about to get an 3051 also. THAT is the subwoofer under the sofa and it should have been hooked up at the factory ... mine was.

I'd let the dealer know so they can fix (and check that its working) for you too. Who was the dealer you bought your 3051 through?

Radio speaker

The dealer is Southern RV in Lafayette, La.
What should the speaker be hooked up to, the inside tv, the inside radio system, the outside tv or the outside radio system.

Thanks for any advice

Hooks up to inside TV/radio system. Outside is separate.Take it back to dealer to have them fix for free if you can't find connection spot.

Other speaker problem

Speakers in living room are much lower that the bedroom or outside speakers. Any ideas where I should start to look for problem? I'm thinking maybe loose connection on back of entertainment unit.

Yes fade...plus the outside speakers are a whole separate system.

PS. for the sub...I'm guessing it was humming very loudly, they could not figure out why and so unplugged it.

Most cases kids play with the radio on the lot and turn the sub way up. There should be a SUB out or Sun gain setting that needs to be adjusted if if it humming or thumping.
