I'm thinking that cutting holes in the outside wall of your RV (if that is what you are suggesting) is just asking for leaks. Also, you'll need to use high quality "marine rated" speakers that will hold up in a damp or wet environment. Normal speakers won't last long outdoors.

I would think a better solutiuon would be to hang a pair of small "bookshelf" or automotive "surface mount" speakers off the awning. Then find a way to run your wiring so that it is not dangling and getting tripped on. Maybe even route the inside wiring to an exterior compartment with speaker jacks and then plug the speakers into that. If the weather gets bad, just bring them inside.

I agree if you don't have couple compartments you can put htem in just cat a couple speakers in cabinets and run your wire to a compartment close to the awning. you can plug the speakers in and run the wire along the awning supports or down under your outside mat. This type of hookup would be easy to do, Radio shack would have everything you would need.

I just mounted a couple of the small outdoor speakers under the edge of the Motorhome on the passenger side and ran wires to my outdoor dvd player/radio.
