I got this to replace a larger soundbar we had connected under the TV via optical input. It had no external buttons so when the remote died it became useless. It's in the shop now waiting for a Getroundtuit to see if I can make it work as a shop speaker.

$60 to $6,000.

Everything other than dimension is personal preference only.

How hard is it to run the power cord for a soundbar set up in the outdoor tv ?

On My ACE 30.3 the outside TV outlet is located under the range inside the drawer space. It is one of the outlets fed from the inverter and it only has a single outlet If I install a soundbar for the outside TV I would put a small power strip in the TV compartment so that there would be a place to plug both the TV and the soundbar. On your ACE 29.3 I expect that the TV is plugged into an outlet under the Bathroom sink. If you are lucky, it will be a double gang outlet. If not, then you will need to add a power strip.

That could work especially if the TV can play the sound out through the USB connection. However, I think the USB connection on TVs is usually for input.

The sound bars that run on USB are super cheap and sound cheap, mostly used for a laptop or monitor. Iíll check out the power connection on my 29.3 to see if I can get power outside to the tv. As ugly as it might look, I could plug a decent sound bar to the outside 110v outlet when watching a movie. (Found - Bose TV Soundbar for $219 on Amazon).

Also, I downloaded movies to play from iPhone to hdmi on my POS Axcerra tv; it didnít work. Iíll try testing with iPad today to see if that makes a difference. This product to convert from iPhone to hdmi either sucks or the Axcerra sucks. It might be time to simply replace the outside tv with a real one- like an Amazon fire tv.

I just ordered this power strip to provide the possibility of a second outlet for TV accessories.
