do I have a sub-woofer? more than 4 speakers? satellite?

Is my 2017 Freedom Elite 23H equipped with a Sub-Woofer?

The controls in the Axxera media player suggest that the coach does have one.
But, how big is it? what does it look like? and where is it located?

And, now I'm wondering, how many speakers do I have? I only know of 4.
How many watts can each of them handle?

In the official spec sheet, all Thor says is:
Speaker Location(s): Interior
Surround Sound: No
And, what do they mean when they say "Satellite Prewiring: Yes"?
Where will that cable be found?

You donít have a sub woofer unless a previous owner installed it. I canít tell you what speakers you have but they probably arenít great. Then too, neither is the radio. If you are an audiophile youíll probably want to start over. Fortunately, itís pretty easy because the vehicle is so big that everything is easy to access. I donít have your model but if itís already wired for satellite radio youíll see the little antenna on the roof and the wire will be attached to the back of the radio. It just means you need to activate the subscription you want it. You also will know is you switch the radio to satellite and you see preview or enrollment information.

I'm starting to learn some of the lingo these manufacturers use. "Satelite pre-wiring" might mean just a piece of coax inside the roof with nothing attached to either end. But, if it is up there, I guess it is better than nothing. I didn't see anything on the roof that looked like a microwave antenna the last time I was up there. I'll look harder next time.

My satellite receiver is an old Sirius radio with a lifetime unlimited subscription. I'm pretty sure that an XM antenna won't work on Sirius and vice-verse. Unless the antenna is specific to Sirius, I wouldn't be able to use it anyway.

there have been instances of folks finding unconnected Subwoofers, behind there Sofa, and some have found one behind the fireplace.
I didnt have one behind the sofa when I replaced it with Recliners.

I wish. But, there is nothing like that on my roof.

I was lucky to get doors with my rig.

That would be me with the Challenger. Thor said there was no subwoofer and I found it under the couch unplugged.
