I am new to the forum and do not pick up my new 2013 Crossroads 300BH until next week, but I've been researching on sound system upgrades found that Crutchfield now carries RV/Marine audio systems by the same brand that is installed on my new 2013.
Here's the link.
Alternatively, you can buy direct from Concertone here:
Concertone.com is an option because they do sell refurbished units, so you can save a few hundies on the head unit.
I don't endorse Crutchfield, but have purchased $1000's from them in the past and their prices are competitive and customer service is phenomenal.
The issue with standard marine and auto speakers is the depth. The speakers listed are either surface mount or only have a top-mount depth 1-1/2"
They do have a head unit (receiver, amp, dvd, usb input) and speakers from Concertone you can upgrade, but get out your wallet because the head unit is $700. The speakers may or may not be an upgrade, but the issue with standard marine and auto speakers you can get from any electronics store is the depth of the ceiling mounts. The
speakers listed on Crutchfield are either surface mount or only have a top-mount depth
1-1/2, so I assume that is about the max depth you can go into the ceiling of an trailer.
Not sure if the speakers listed would be considered an upgrade, but they do sell a separate subwoofer you can feed off that head unit which will add quite a bit of more low-end fidelity.
I didn't bite on the upgraded head unit because the extra watts per channel doesn't do much for me. I am working on installing a marine grade amp and speaker upgrade down the road. My unit comes with the ZX85 so Im going to try it out first before spending yet another $1,000 on speakers and head unit. I still hurting from the Propride hitch upgrade for $2400!
