Where can I get a new OEM speaker ?

One of the rear speakers in our 2014 23D International Serenity has an awful 'rattle' with even the slightest hint of bass. Sounds lousy! I'm not interested in an 'upgrade,' the OEM speakers are fine (except for the rattly distortion), so I'm looking to buy just one to replace the bad one.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Rob

Did you try removing it and then playing something through it to see if it is the speaker at fault. It may not be mounted correctly.

Since they are just automotive speakers probably a matching set of speakers of the same size is probably cheaper and better than one speaker ordered from Vogt RV.

Good idea, Kelvin... I'll check it tomorrow.

No reason to pay jacked up RV prices. Check out Amazon or Crutchfield.

Just keep an eye on the speaker depth of you do get new ones, there are shallow depth speakers available, infinity makes some nice ones and they're not really to expensive.

Remove your speaker (should be 4 screws) get the model number and then go to Amazon and buy a replacement speaker.

You really do want an upgrade. You just haven't realized/equated it yet.
Another speaker like that one would buzz/rattle just the same in short order.
Better speakers for less money at a car stereo store.
Win, win.

I've always used parts-express.com for these sorts of things. The tech folk there are very helpful, and the prices are great!

I'm with m.hony on this: you really do want an upgrade! You can pay dealer prices for junk, or less money for something nice!

When our AS was new, it came from the factory with only 3 of the 4 speakers. The speaker grill was there for the missing speaker, but no speaker. I didn't even go back to the dealer to get a replacement. I just took the opportunity to replace a pair of the speakers with like sized but better quality speakers.

That solved one problem, but there was still rattling from the thin sheet of wood paneling on the bottom of the cabinet directly above the speakers. That's probably where your rattling is coming from. See if you can attach any wood around your speakers more securely and add some insulation between the speaker and any cabinets to isolate it and minimize sources of vibration.

If that's not it and your speaker is defective, you should replace the pair.

Mine rattled like crazy....the installer used the custom Jackson Center 'Air'-screws,(missed their mark completely), I replaced them with THIS, no more rattle and easily removed if needed.

Bingo! When I removed the four screws and dropped the speaker down to take a look, I saw that there was a wire end (an unused pair, part of a wiring harness) laying inside the speaker frame directly of the cone. Relocated the offending wire and all's well with the world again!

Thanks, all!

Rob
