We are looking at our build sheet and considering the Audio options. I am a bit of an audiophile and musician, so sound quality will be important to me. I haven't heard the system in the Escape, but have heard some in other trailers and have been completely unimpressed. I'm not talking about volume so much as sound quality.
Something that can up in conversation recently was the product available from Bose. https://www.bose.ca/en_ca/products/s...eless_speakers
You can fill a good sized room with great sound with one of their small units, and it would be portable (when the trailer is not in use it can be in the garage or wherever you like).
I was looking at Touch 10 and Touch 20 at the local BestBuy, and was pretty impressed with the sound quality from a compact device. I would think that you could stream anything you like through it, including music from phone/table/laptop or a satellite radio device. I need to find out if it would work with TV.
This doesn't necessarily answer what you might do with the hole in your cabinetry, but I thought I would share the concept.
