SUB Woofer Installed

Added the subwoofer to the audio system today. I was looking for an alternative to the standard sub that was big and bulky. I came across a powered sub that did exactly what I wanted and was easy to conceal. Here was my solution: Sub woofer by a company called Theater Solutions. Model number is SUB8S. I paid $98 for the unit:



The specs on the unit are:


8" Home Theater 250 Watt Powered Slim Subwoofer


Slim 4 3/4" Height Design Fits Under Most Furniture


8" High Efficiency Low Frequency Transducer


100 Watts RMS & 250 Watts Max In Cabinet Amplifier


35-150 Hz Frequency Response


24 db per Octave Crossover


Dimensions are Height 4 3/4" x Length 24 5/8" x Depth 15 3/4"

The unit fit right behind the lounge seat and there was already a power outlet right there. I used the low level RCA input and ran that while the headliner was out. The sub came with a wall-mounting bracket that worked just great.

Here's the unit mounted to the wall
Here you can see the seat mounted all the way back. There's room to spare and the seat can swivel it's full range without any interference.


As you can see the unit is virtually invisible:

Although I can't have you experience how great the sound is, trust me when I say this sub sounds great when paired up with the Yamaha surround sound speakers. I also installed the Sony home theater amp along with a LG Blu-ray player and Dish Network VIP211 Sat receiver.

I had the cloth insert replaced on my front driver side, the cloth was worn and started to tear. I had two original pillows that matched the material on the captain chairs so I used one of them to cut apart, it was large enough to replace the inserts. I took it to a upholstery shop to make the switch, it was very reasonable and turned out great. The pillow used for the repair was a match to the one sitting on top of the sofa in this photo.

Did you take the whole captains chair to the upholsterer or did you remove the seat covers first? Great idea on using the pillow to obtain the right fabric. I just wish I had one to use. I think I can use most any compatible leather or fabric to make it look appropriate. The curb side seat is in good condition but it looks like I'll have to have both seat inserts replaced unless I can find the same fabric to match. As you can see the road side seat insert is toast.

Your seats look great by the way!

I pulled the whole seat, the upholster wanted to see what he was working with and said it would be best if I just brought the whole thing to him to make sure seams lined up correctly.

Let me know if you every want to sell the other pillow.

Today I installed the front speakers for the dash radio. Anyone know if the Kenwood KDC-3011 is the stock radio for a 92 LY? That's what is installed right now.

Looks like AS used a number of different radios. My 93 had a Sony, I see others have had JVC and Panosonic. I think I'll just hang on to that one pillow for now.

Getting closer to having the LY ready for the road. Between this weekend and today I've:

Replaced front brake pads
Resurfaced rotors
Replaced all belts
Replaced all plugs
Replaced plug wires
Repaired dash blower
Resealed the last window (bedroom curb side)
Replaced ALL speakers for dash radio (6 total)
Repaired broken vacuum lines to dash AC/Heat control
Repaired broken fluid washer lines to wipers
Replaced wiper blades
Repaired broken leveler jack harness connector

Dam!!! I'm tired.

Still on the list is:

Repair backup camera
Replace rear brake shoes
Check tag brakes
Grease tag axle
Wash outside and recondition outside gel coat (Red Max Pro)
Replace all awning pull straps (already ordered)
Wash outside awnings

This has been one hell of a project. Can't wait for the next Airstream to work on. I'll use this one for about a year and then I'll be looking for a later model classic. I've always loved the idea of an all alluminum MH and love the lines of the classic but want to stay with a FI 454 or a diesel. I did almost buy a Revcon before I found this 92 LY but sure glad I waited. $2000 purchase price and about another $2000 invested in repairs. Still think I'm ahead on this one.

OK, just got a call from RVCams.com. Looks like the monitor is still good, but the camera will not put out a picture. They have a replacement camera for the original Sony. The camera is a Voyager VBCS150 and they have an adaptor cable to connect to the existing Sony din harness. Looks like one more item off the list.

Received the new backup camera and my monitor back from RVCAMS.COM. Connected it up and ... Bingo. The new camera worked perfectly. The only issues I run into were adjusting the original mounting bracket to accommodate the smaller sized camera and reflections off the OEM plastic lens from the new camera's infrared LEDs. I ended up blocking the LEDs with black electrical tape. It reduced night vision resolution, but I wanted an OEM look so I couldn't mount the camera outside the stock location.

92, Just read the post about using pillow fabric for the captain chair repair. If you can use these, you can have them.
2 pillow covers (21"x28") heavy upholstery fabric on one side, solid, not as heavy on the back side.
I also have a queen comforter/cover in the same solid material. Don't think I'll ever use it, so it's available, too. (Just to clarify, these are from our LY.)
I'll put a picture up. Let me know if interested.

Thanks for the offer Dowpells, but unfortunately that's not the same fabric used on my LY. I guess the best solution would be to pull the seats and have an upholsterer redo the fabric inserts with something complementary. I wish I could find the same fabric but I'm betting that, that is not going to happen.
