More speakers...

I have an 08 sport 22 and would like to add two more speakers and an amp. Is it possible to run wires from up front to an overhead location in the rear? Or will the stringers/formers be in the way and prevent this?

Thanks!

Anything is possible, but I believe to do that you would have to remove, or at least partially remove the inner skin.

More than I would be willing to do for additional speakers.

Is there any mouldings you can pull off and slip the wires under? Tuck it under the baseboard fabric and run it through cabinets? Look at all the possibilities and decide if its worth it.

I bet some googling would turn up some thin shielded audio cable. Something like the old analog cable used for computer CD drives ( a very small diameter cable with both channel wires covered by shielding/ground).

If not you could rig up something with an FM transmitter and second receiver.

Does your 08 sport 22 have the same center ceiling panel like on the earlier (70’s) models? On ours, the wiring harness runs down the center of the trailer, above this ceiling panel. While it’s still a pain to remove, it would easier than removing one of the side inside skins. You could access the wiring harness, and find the speakers wires, and then tap into them. Then all you would need to do is run them down inside the side walls using an electrical fish tape or even a wire coat hanger if it’s long enough. Cut a hole where the speaker will mount after you’re sure you can fish the new speaker wire down far enough without running into any cross ribs.

Hopefully that all makes sense and is helpful.
