I bought a small sound bar that sits under our 32 inch TV. It gives much better sound than the stock sound system even with upgraded speakers.

Which sound bar did you buy? Does it have a subwoofer ? Thanks Jeff

I purchased this one. "Good" quality sound without a subwoofer. As with most things for the TT, Size and power consumption must be traded off vs performance. This sits under our 32 inch tv (I think it is 28 inches long) and has pretty good sound output. Now it does not match my 7.1 setup on my HDTV at home but then again this is for "roughing" it in the camper. For price/performance/size I would give it a rating or 9/10. It sure beats the speakers on the tv.

Looks nice! Yea, sure is hard "camping" without full surround isn't it?! LOL. Does the sound bar connect to tv via digital audio out or RCA ? I assume Bluetooth is a separate feature? Thanks Jeff.

I have a 2011 Freedom Express 295RLDS. My dvd plays overhead but only on the right speakers. The stereo plays on right and left. I have moved the wires all over and get the video to play on the left speakers. My TV only plays on the tv speakers. Any suggestions?

Did it ever work properly? What kinda head unit do you have ? Sounds like loose connections somewhere. All speakers work in some config, so we know it's not blown speakers. Have you removed and reseated each speaker wire connection into the head unit? Is it possible that on dvd setting your balance is saved to only one side of speakers ? Thinking out loud here trying to help.

That's odd because my 360 had the cables prewired and they were just sitting behind the TV hanging out of the wall.

I have had the Jenson head unit out many times and all cables are secure. I bought the travel trailer used and have no idea if it ever worked properly. I will take it all apart again next week and try all the combinations again. Thank you for your thoughts.

I honestly thought they would be like my 14 lacrosse was I ended up finding the cables to hook it up the way it should of been up in one of the cabinets. But atleast it works now that's all that matters.
