Speaker upgrade

I am looking in to upgrading the cheap Jensen speakers in my 5th wheel. Saw and article about the Furrion soundbar speakers but they never went in to how much the sound was improved. These speakers carry a $100 price tag for the pair. If the sound is greatly improved will gladly pay this but just curious if there is something else out there designed for a rv with a better value.

It usually helps to indicate what model rig you have. Jensen speakers is a generic comment so it's hard for many to chime in.
Also, keep in mind it's not only the speakers that are important but the watts in the amplifier that are powering the speakers.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Not familiar with that speaker package! Keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

When i did my home theater and tv upgrade i bought the below Yamaha speaker set on Amazon for $150. Sound in the MH is awesome. I replaced all the front speaker wires with heavier gauge except for the rears. I mounted the rear speakers in the ceiling corner and just moved the wires from those little 3" square ones in the ceiling over.

I just finished upgrading from a stock Furrion DV3200 head unit and Jensen MS5006B in-ceiling speakers. The head unit was replaced with a Fusion MS-AV755 and the speakers with Polk db522. The sound is significantly better than the Jensens (particularly on the low frequency end), but I feel it could be further improved by the addition of a subwoofer. I will probably do that, but I don't have a unit picked out yet.
