Replacing outdoor speakers

I've been in the audio/video field for a long time, and currently own my own custom home A/V company. That being said, the outdoor speakers on my trailer (268RKS) are without a doubt the worst speakers I've ever heard in my life, bar none. They're what, like 2" drivers or something? I know it's a low wattage 12v system, but I've had other trailers with similar head units and none were nearly this bad. Has anyone swapped out the speakers on this or any other trailer before? I figure it will require some kind of 5" or 6x9 marine speaker in a low profile housing, but I've never done any RV speakers before and was wondering if there's any preferred way of doing it.

I would agree but in the interest of making happy neighbors it might be intentional by FR.... I believe they are plastic cones with no compliance at all.

That could be. Or at least it's a good cop out for putting $.50 speakers in if someone asks them. I go to a lot of primitive campgrounds with tons of open space, usually a ring of trailers with a bonfire in the middle, so it would be nice to project out a bit farther out with decent sound.

Let me know what you come up with. My new entertainment system is 200 watts and the outdoor speakers on my Wildcat are pretty awful.

I camp in remote areas away from everyone and it all and it would be nice to actually enjoy the outdoor speakers while sitting by the campfire.
