Surround sound/AV issues

We have a 2006 Winnebago Adventurer. When we got it, someone had taken the receiver/dvd/vhs player and cut all the speaker wires so sourround sound does not work. We are attempting to replace that but having difficulting finding something that will fit the existing technology. All connections are coax that feed to the switch box. Any suggestions on what piece of equipment might work for us.

The way to identify the speakers is to take a 9V battery and touch the individual pairs of wires to the contacts. The speaker connected to that wire will have a very loud click. Can't help you with the other wires. A lot of folks have ditched the switch box and use the inputs on the television to change sources. I don't know what kind of TV you have and how many inputs it has so this might not work. Good luck.

Instead of buying last decade's technology, why not get a home theater system.

I would look at the online tech info for your coach and find out what the orig install was, then decide if you want to use what is available or upgrade. Winny has constantly changed A/V configurations over the years and upgrading to currently used can be a challenge.

There's lots of questions here. I would not put the old technology equipment back in!

I updated our surround sound system last year. I bought a low-end Denon receiver and Samsung Blu-Ray DVD player. I used the existing speakers, but added a Polk PWS-111 powered subwoofer. Your old receiver probably used a speaker-level subwoofer as mine did.

Do you have a flat-screen HD TV? If so, you need an HDMI cable from the new receiver to the TV. The Blu-Ray player will connect to the receiver with an HDMI cable also.

If you will be using satellite TV, such as Direct TV or Dish, is it going to be HD or SD? If HD, then you will need an HDMI cable from the satellite receiver to the surround sound receiver. If SD, this connection can be regular coax. My satellite is SD, so the coax output cable goes into the coax distribution box (switcher). I have a TV cable input outside that goes into the switcher also. I installed a coax A-B switch in this line that allows me to use that outside input for a portable satellite dish.

This just gives you some ideas on how to approach this. Hope it helps!
