How to turn off outside speaker on 2018 Rockwood Popup

New happy owner of a 2018 Rockwood 1910ESP here.

Has anyone figured out how to turn off the outside speaker on the 2018 Rockwoods? I've found threads that reference how to do this from the Kenwood (I think) unit that shipped with previous year models, but the 2018's come with a Furrion DV7100 radio. I've downloaded the Furrion manual and have found no references to any option for controlling speakers.

I may have to just pull the speaker out and disconnect the wire. It would be nice to be able to listen to the radio without disturbing my neighbors.

Mine are set up to where you have to use the balance control. front / rear, inside/ outside.
Could a small on /off switch be cut into the speaker wires and mounted by the door?

Hm. This one doesn't appear to support a front / rear speaker setup. In fact, looking at the wiring diagram in the manual, they must have wired the outside speaker into the same port as the internal ones. I don't see any other way that they could have done it.

There's a subwoofer output, but (not surprisingly) turning that on/off has no effect on the outside speaker.

Guess I'll need to cut the wire.

Check the left/right balance. One should be completely inside, one should be completely outside. At least it is on our 2014 425D.

That would be right. Fade = front/ back and balance = left/right. One of those will turn off the outside speaker. I remember it making no sense whenever adjust it.

It's hard to believe that they would hook up the outdoor speakers to the indoor speakers without a method to turn them off. Well, maybe not that hard. With my radio, every time I turned the radio on the outdoor speakers (Zone 3) would be on until I turned them off (at least I couldn't find a way to permanently turn them off). I fixed the problem by adding toggle switches to turn the outside speakers on/off. I just keep them off until I want to use them. You might be able to do this if you can pickup the outdoor wires close to your unit.

I'll give the L/R balance a try next time I go out. I really hope that they didn't set it up that way, though, because that would mean the two indoor speakers are on one channel and not playing in stereo.

My A Frame was hooked up to the L/R balance instead of the fader. I got in there behind the microwave and rewired it properly.
