I use a Bose blue tooth speaker with my iPhone. Great sound, very portable, no extra wires, no extra holes, and easy to replace when it gets outdated. If I have wifi, I can stream music,news, etc. or just listen to music I like....

I tried side by side tests at various stores and found the Bose line to be worth the added dinero. Got my son a small Bose that produces amazing sound for its size, including very decent bass.

We never added the built in stereo. We use a smart phone and a bluetooth speaker: Logitech X300 Mobile Wireless Stereo speaker review - CNET. The speaker sounds great to us, and can be used anywhere we choose. It also serves as an FM radio, but needs to be connected to the speaker by a wire from the Windows phone, because the wire acts as the antenna.

We used frequent flyer miles to purchase a Bose SL3 (so it was FREE!!! yeah, not really); we use it with Android smartphones. There's a free "Equalizer" app you can use to emphasize (or de-emphasize) bass, treble, mid, etc., and this is a real help in bringing out the best with this speaker, especially at the low volumes we typically use when camping. We use the speaker in our back yard now and then, too.

Thanks everyone! Great information. My mom has cochlear implants and Does her "Hearing exercises" with BOSE speakers and it really helps. So high quality sound from the speaker is important. We also want to make sure we can have the weather alerts etc. Family Affair is a multi-generational rig for my wife and I along with my camping pioneer mom. I want her to be able to hear the radio if needed, and the TV via bluetooth

My camp neighbors have shown a strong preference to my not yodeling in their midst. My German Shepherd concurs.

I was wondering if ETI might substitute this newer Jensen model for the one they have in their demo models. It has bluetooth abilities along with CD, DVD. I typically use my smartphone with downloaded Google Music All Access playlists to stream to a bluetooth device. It would require a slightly larger hole but other wise should fit. I like the idea of built ins. The wiring is all there (hidden) and components are secure. Upgrades should be possible. We have until next July before we lock in so plenty of time to see what other technology emerges before checking with ETI.
