    Upgraded my Surround Sound (or not) system

    I removed the insignia sound bar and replace with a Samsung sound bar with wireless subwoofer. Nice difference. The sub sits behind my recliners and plugs in under the dining room table. The insignia wasn't bad...okay, it wasn't really good either. The sub makes a nice difference, and not having to cable it is huge! I also used a blu ray player that I had at the house instead of the one on board. Thanks to Grand D for putting the cutouts in to put the system together.

    Can you give us a link to what you installed. My system needs a little help too.

    Thanks.

    Re: Upgraded my Surround Sound (or not) system

    I was a little disappointed that my DVD Player does not play Blu-Ray Discs. This is a brand new unit and Blu-Ray is the way most DVD's are made now. I have a Blu-Ray Player that I wanted to connect to the system but was not quite sure how to get the HDMI cable hooked up to the system so I can use the Blue-Ray player instead of the DVD player already there. Anybody have any ideas.

    Re: Upgraded my Surround Sound (or not) system

    The system I put in is this one - http://www.samsung.com/us/video/home-audio/HW-F450/ZA. The sound is very good, and we picked the system up at Sam's Club.

    As for the DVD player, I recently upgraded my home system, and took my Panasonic DVD and hooked it up to the trailer. If you put it in the upper right cabinet of the 369, you can route the cables down and through the provided grommets (Thanks GD!) down to the TV. If you switch out the sound bar, then you wire into the sound bar. Otherwise you plug into the TV and let the TV audio feed the sound bar instead. The TV has a 1/8" cable that runs into the aux on the sound bar. It is not Dolby sound, but works pretty well. I thought about switching the included audio system for a Jensen, but decided to do the sound bar instead with my BluRay player.

    Re: Upgraded my Surround Sound (or not) system

    I just added a Bose sound system and it makes a lot of difference. When researching "actually listening to" sound bars at the stores I keep coming back to the Bose because of the sound. The system I chose is a wired system so I put the woofer in the upper right cabinet of the 369. The bass speaker is laying on its side because of its size but I might reconstruct the cabinet at a later date.
