Best Hurricane Mod Yet!

I recently upgraded the two speakers over the cab and added a 10” JL Audio subwoofer in a narrow cabinet that sits next to the driver seat just below the mirror and leveler controls with a Kicker Amp mounted under the dinette seat. Audio supplied by a FiiO X3 Mark III High Res music player playing CD’s ripped to lossless FLAC file format (radio works great now too). Hands down the best money spent so far.
Now I can listen to whatever I feel like listening to, be it Bible study, gospel, rock and roll, country or blues and can turn it up until I no longer hear the rattles, squeaks, engine or road noise. Not sure my wife feels the same, but then she doesn’t have to listen to me complain.
Seriously, the Aaxera radio has a dedicated output for the subwoofer and actually sounds pretty good when paired with reasonable speakers and amplifier for the subwoofer. The amplifier is hardwired into the 12 volt house system that is off when the coach is in store mode.

Nice, I'm planning my system at the moment. Post some pictures if you can, I'm interested in what you've done.

Enclosed are the following pics of the installation in my 2015 Hurricane 27K. #1 is the JL Audio 10” subwoofer and narrow enclosure mounted just below the cup holder and leveler controls next to the driver’s seat. Note that you can see the cable on the left to the power amp and the cable on the right goes up to the dash and radio. #2 and #3 are of the Kicker power amp mounted under the dinette seat. Note the power and ground cable to the left (toward the rear) of the amplifier that goes to the other dinette seat where you can obtain a solid ground and switched (store/use switch) house power and the cables on the right of the amplifier that go to the subwoofer/dash. #4 is a photo of the Pioneer speakers under the cabinet on top of the dinette and the two overhead speakers above the cockpit.

I went with the JL Audio 10" woofer because it had a grill to protect the speaker. The 6" speakers are Pioneer, chosen because they were $50 a pair and I bought 4 of them to replace the 2 under the cabinet and 2 above the driver and passenger seats. You can save a lot if you buy online and install yourself.
