Outdoor speakers

Just bought a 04 Thor jazz fiver. Has outdoor speakers built in the side, but can't find the speaker leads to hook up to a power source. Any ideas

Thanks

YES: Leave them disconnected.


I have seen many Rigs with an outdoor radio, usually in a basement compartment. this worked with the outdoor speakers.

But my best advice is do not use them..

If you remove the speakers are there leads already attached to the back, or, are there no leads at all?

And, I humbly disgree with leaving them un-used. You'll be surprised how much you will use them.

Agree...don't use them. Your neighbors will be very grateful.

Most of your neighbors may frown at you for using them.

The leads go to a switch to turn them off or on. But is all I can find

Yes, dont hook them up. Surely you dont think your neighbors want to hear your noise pollution.

If I can hear some else's music/noise or they can hear mine, it is too loud. We have a Sirius receiver inside our teardrop and all too often it is on at night to drown out our neighbors portable noise, but you can not hear ours.

If your radio has a A and B switch on the front your outdoor speakers are probably on the B switch. My neighbors, especially the kids, are normally louder than my radio... (as much as I have tried the remote does not turn down their volume... of course their parents don't either) when we have them. A lot of people do not dry camp.

jmeram, They are your speakers, use them, I am sure you will be considerate in your use if you are around other campers. Be sure you never use them when the camper next door has a yapping little mut out, you may have to turn them up to over power his barking, Also screaming kids and grand kids can be very loud, you would never want to be louder than they are. And last but not least, never ever use them around grumpy campers who never like being distrubed. They paid more for there site than you did, so they are entitled to quite time 24 hrs aday.

I hope you find your lead lines, and by the way add an amp if you want to. Just be considerate of others.

I agree!! The idea of a camp ground needing to be as quite as a retirement home, or a graveyard is just foreign to me.

If the music plays in the forest an no one is there---can it be heard?

Too many variables in "camping" arrangements for an overall nix on speakers. Just be sensitive to time, place and circumstance and of course volume. I mean loud talking can be a distraction in a pristine environment.

So while I prefer quiet and stay generally quiet myself;some times my friends and I party. Where I am right now it is no problem within reason. I respect anothers desire for a little back ground music in moderation at the right time and place----and again volume.

I like to listen to music when I'm at RV parks. Sorry I don't consider it the same as going into the backwoods and getting in tune with nature. I do respect the neighbors and will always check with them if my stereo is too loud or not. I've never had any complaints.
