wireless speakers

ETI appears to be switching to a Boss stereo which will Blue tooth connect to your iPhone or whatever. I have it and on occasion use it to enjoy some music or an audio story (like a Stuart McLean Vinyl Cafe story). The main reason we have a stereo is to get weather and news when boon docking, but we plan on long trips where we will want our music playing quietly. The Boss doesn't transmit to other Bluetooth devices, but the phone does if I wanted to buy a portable BT speaker.

Do you mean Bose (rather than Boss)?

No, I mean Boss. I wish it was a Bose though. The Boss unit retails for around $70.

Bob, I probably should have Googled Boss before asking. I never heard of them, not that I keep current with the audiophile stuff. I did just Google them and I would guess that they are a relatively new company. I had been told the Jensen was Bluetooth compatible, but the model ETI uses isn't so I had to use a module and the input jack on the front of the unit. Had I known it wasn't Bluetooth ready, I probably would have purchased a higher tech radio and sent it to ETI. I kind of looked at 12v stereos after taking delivery. I found many that were BT capable if you wanted to stream music to them, but could not find a single unit that would stream via BT to a remote speaker. I came to the conclusion that the only way to do it would be with a BT transmitter like Charlie mentioned. But since I didn't use the Jambox I mentioned in an earlier post even once, I decided I didn't need music outside.

We have a UE Boom Bluetooth speaker that we use inside (mostly) and outside (occasionally) which we connect to a cell phone via Bluetooth. We listen to music stored on the phone or to radio stations via TuneIn Radio app if we are in cell phone range. The UE Boom speaker has a big enough battery that we usually need to charge it before a trip and not again until we return.

We chose to have a wider rear door in the storage compartment over the bed rather than space for speakers. The fixed speakers seemed too limiting to us, like use outside.

Have a great Jensen motorcycle St ereo with four wired in speakers, all installed by ETI during the build. Also have an awesome wireless Bluetooth Bose speaker. We hardly ever use any of that while camping and much prefer to visit and enjoy our surroundings.

Don't mean to offend by suggesting the obvious, but have you rechecked the Bose Manual? And if it's the same Bose I have in my garage, did you push the button which puts it in BT mode?

I did quite a bit of research on this subject, from integrated wired entertainment systems to inexpensive portable wireless. I found there are significant trade offs to both, and of course cost is a big factor. We ended up getting the Sony X55, and it sounds really fantastic for a portable BT stereo. I read a lot of reviews and went to several stores (Target, Best Buy) to listen and compare all the units. We thought this one sounded best for its price point. It allows us to listen inside as well as out, and it's a simple solution to having portable, high-quality, relatively low-cost audio. I'm very happy with it.

Same one I have, super sound and the charge lasts a really long time at campground table volumes. BT working range is around 20-30 ft (since our trailers are fiberglass!)
