I just want to replace mt cheap RCA with a good sounding system that has the clips in the back for the speakers. If it has a DVD that OK but mandatory.
Any suggestions?

Iggy, I was in Walmart yesterday and they have a Panasonic complete unit for $168.00. 500w, I will be buying one soon as I get my unit back from ford shop. I just posted about a TSB on the rear suspension brackets.

Just a random thought for you guys. Has anyone thought to investigate the quality/gauge of the speaker wire used by FR. Before going and spending a lot of money, that is.

The standed copper that they use is a good standard size. Couldn't tell you off the AWG but its not telephone wire. I will check next time.

I will also give them a visit. Tell me Copsuno did the amplifier unit have HDMI inputs for a Blu ray DVD and HDMI or digital outputs for sound from the sources?
500w would be 100x 5 correct? was there a separate sub woofer channel?
Sorry to bother you with specs

Back in the day when I used to read Consumer Reports Panasonic products were always highly rated in regards quality and durability. I have been a big fan of their stuff since.

The unit I looked at had all the speakers, which would be left-overs, and sub. the unit similar to the rca had a 3D/blu ray dvd and the correct speaker wires. Will run back by and let you know the model number.

Here are some pics of my install. Sorry it took so long. The hardest part of changing out the stock speakers is finding half-way decent speakers that will fit. It was not too difficult to increase the diameter of the cut out. Mounting depth is the problem. There is only about 2" of space in the ceiling of the coach before you poke a hole in the roof. I ended buying Clarion marine speakers for the ceiling( not the best from an Audiophile point of view, but much better than what was there). The subwoofer is a Pinnacle( nice unit for the size and money). The amp, DVD and TV are all Sony.
Note that I popped the glass out of the overhead compartment door. With it up it blocks the speaker. With it closed, it's way too hot. Poor speaker placement on the part of FR.
