Stereo and DVD player and speakers

Where are these installed? In or under storage areas?

Generally, you could have them installed wherever you want them, but most people have them installed in the upper cabinets for ease of use...

Edited: Some have had their units installed under the upper cabinets so as not to take up storage in the cabinets themselves although I don't know if ETI will do that--it may be an owner modification.

If mounted under the overhead cabinets, as far as possible toward the corners, the speaker cones structure would be boxed in the dead and corners, protected from damage, and not detract from your storage area. I figured that out after I had it done the other way.......rats!

Hi Jerry, I like the under cabinet mount for the player. Are the two round speakers the ones that came with the order - mounted on the storage front? Do you lose much storage with these? And where did you get the two slanted speakers mounted under the storage?
Thanks!

I sent one of those enclosures to ETI for mounting my stereo; turned out they supply it when you pay them to install yours. Might want to verify that, though.

Is there any reason not just to use an Iphone and bluetooth speaker?

Depends. A quality car stereo and speakers installed in the trailer will blow away a phone and Bluetooth speaker in terms of sound quality. We use a little Bose Bluetooth speaker and our phones for music in the trailer. But, higher quality sound isn't a priority for us when we are camping. If it is, the installed stereo makes sense.

I use a BlueTooth transmitter with my stereo and a BlueTooth speaker on the campground table with it's own volume control. Lets us listen outside at a low enough volume not to disturb the neighbors.
