Hello Cedar:

You can install speakers in the bay I would suggest taking it to a stereo shop for installation and have them put in a switch so you can turn off the outdoor or indoor speakers when not in use. They should be able to cut into the current speaker wiring for the install. The wires can be run through the fire wall and along the frame into the storage bays.

Another option depending on the level of fidelity you require is wireless speakers. I have battery-powered units that I can use at 100ft from my RV. The sending unit can sit on the dash when in use. No muss no fuss and I can use them at home too. Cost around $100.

Cedar41 - What I would do, assuming I didn't need top quality stereo, is buy a portable radio, boom box or whatever, and tune it into the frequency of the XM modulator. 87.9 MHz is the standard frequency of the modulator and let the radio play XM for you. If you don't have the modular hookup in the RV, you can buy a modulator and use it to provide the signal for the portable radio. Most people already have portable radios so you may not need to buy one. Any FM radio can be used and the quality of music you desire can dictate what you want to use. Since there is the AC outlet in the bay, you can plug any house hold radio in and play XM...heck, even a Bose tabletop. If the modulator signal is too weak at the bay you can run any wire up to the modulator and back to the bay so it is near the radio and your signal will then be strong enough.
