Radio Volume Controls

So here's my latest (odd) problem. Our 2003 Monaco laPalma has a nice radio system, with a speaker in the bedroom and of course the front. BUT we can not find a volume control in the bedroom. And it's much louder in the bedroom than the front. There must be some way to control the rooms seperately. There is not a button or knob on the radio that appears to be for that purpose. Nothing in the bedroom that we can find, just a couple of speakers in the ceiling. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

The radio should have a fader control as an adjustment. Most of the time it is in the same place as adjusting the bass treble and balance. The fader adjusts the front to rear and you can turn the front up or down or the rear up or down or turn either completely off if you wish. You just have to find the fader on the radio. If you could list the brand i may could help with finding the fader as i used to install radios in college. Hope this helps. Chad

It's normally adjusted very similar to the side to side (balance) control?

On some of the newer digital display radios you have to go into the menus to adjust front/rear balance.. I know you do on my Pioneer.

I have a 2007 Endeavor. The wiring for the rear bedroom speakers, in my coach, is in parallel with the front speakers. I have the same louder sound from the rear speakers. It would be nice if the rear were run through the radio fader.

You did not say what brand radio you have. If it is a Magnadyne, pus the volume knob once to access the fader, balance, bass and treble controls. You can also download the manual from Magnadyne.

Thank you all - I fixed the speaker problem. It was really very simple. I am just so NOT a radio person. It was in fact on one of the buttons, I just had to cycle thru the bass, tenor, etc. Then there it was. Is there anything that can not be resolved on these group sites?
