I took my tt to them a week ago Tuesday. To my surprise they said it would be ready that afternoon. They were putting a rush on it because I have been waiting since March when the parts list was turned in.
I talked to them 15 minutes ago. They said I can probably pick it up tomorrow. I'm waiting on a call back.
So sometime in the next two weeks when I pick it up I'll let you know.

I picked up the trailer today and checked the outside speakers inside, in the overhead cabinets. Each end of the cabinets where the speakers are located are completely closed in.

We ordered our TT with external speakers. When it arrived, we found that the factory had "forgotten" to install them. (The same thing happened with the roof ladder.) So the dealer said that he'd mount the speakers (and the ladder) in his shop. The day that we arrived for the PDI, we found that he had. Except that instead of installing the speakers up-high, just under the awning, he installed them on the same angle-down speaker housings, but mounted just over the wheel-well, so that the speaker backs are cut into the two benchseats of the dinettes. Apparently, he couldn't figure out how to get the wires into the upper cabinet area without having them exposed. Pulling them up through the adjoining refrigerator cabinet, or even using a simple wire-mold weren't as obvious a solution.

I guess that's what happens when they assign some unsupervised 19 y/o kid to install a pair of speakers....

Thanks Gary, mine are closed in by the end plate 2 screws and there they were, trun them on and click the outside speakers and see if you don't hear them inside for me.

I have had them on before and I can hear them inside, but it's muffled quite a bit. I went out again and listened to make sure and the same, just a muffled sound. No where near the quality or volume that I hear out side. Here's a few pics to make sure ours look the same.





You could take off the panel inside the cabinet and try to line the three walls with foam padding or something similar. I don't think it will have any adverse effects to the sound outside and it should help out on the inside volume.

Hope this helps.

There are several manufacturers that install them down low so that the sound is broadcast to those at that level. Your neighbors on the site next to you appreciate them that way for sure.

Mounted high or low, my neighbors can't complain cause it's to loud inside the trailer and the DGF won't let me "crank it up" still working on my fix!!!
