Outside tv

When my husband is watching the games on the outside tv unit, the sound is really loud inside the coach. Is there any way to deaden the sound to the inside of coach? Any suggestions are appreciated.

We have this same problem. The outside radio/TV is actually louder inside our coach than outside. It needs some sound insulation...

I haven't seen the outside TV configuration on the entegras, but they make material to deaden noise, it comes in sheets and will stick to most anything, you may be able to remove TV and speakers install this material in enclosure and reistall TV over the top, I dont think it will eliminate all sound but should help, heres a link to one site as there are many, hope it helps.

Most of the flat screens today have a rear facing speakers. You have 3 options, a sound dampening material between the tv and coach, headphones or additional speakers mounted and facing out.

The wall is fairly thin and once you stick a TV in it there's not a whole lot of room for insulation. Especially the bass because low frequencies are felt rather than heard. Canning the OEM speakers and going with a wireless setup (either table speakes or headphones) would help. Some units come with sound bars to aim the waves outward instead on inward but that would probably require a smaller TV or bigger compartment to make it all fit. A bit of insulation on the inside wall behind a kitchen cabinet might help somewhat but it won't alleviate the problem.

Thanks for the suggestions. Although, I did think the John Wayne post was my husband using an alias!

My 15 y/o boy plays the music loud outside and we hear it louder inside. Glad to hear that we are not the only ones suffering. Thanks for the ideas to correct that!!

Look behind the sofa on the wall where the outside tv is and you will see the back of the radio. pretty much wide open to the outside when the tv door is open. Not a lot of room left for insulation!

lowpasslew, congrats on the new coach and welcome to the Pensacola chapter of Entegra owners!!
