X2! I hate being assaulted by my neighbors lack of manners! I really don't want to listen to their NASCAR races and twang in my campsite! Keep it inside thank you!

Atomic, well said. I think you speak for a lot of your fellow campers with that statement.

I think most RVs are just plain out of control.... I think most of these disposable things are way nicer than most live in at home. I recently saw a pop up camper with in and out kitchens, and an outdoor 50 something inch tv. Seriously, it's a pop up camper!

Bottom line:
All of those features are there to sell campers.
Airstream apparently doesn't need those things to sell campers.
Outdoor kitchens are nice-
I have an outdoor kitchen- a table, a hot plate, and a grill-
I have an outdoor entertainment center- an iPad and an iPhone.
If I want to hear music, I leave the door open-

I agree 100 percent! Nascar, Fox, football, and country music blaring from neighboring sites is one of the things I dread (and will drive us to boondocking) once we hit the road.

So...if I understand these comments correctly, the factory Sony radio has a separate amp not built into the radio itself? I have used Bluetooth speakers outside for sometime but find it a complete pain. They seem to always need charging and remembering to do so with all the other devices we have to charge just makes the charging more of a challenge. Getting into the output of the amp with exterior jacks seems to be a more fundamental solution...no charging and not having to switch Bluetooth devices on phone, ipad, etc. I have a 28 ft 2012 FC, now the question, where to put the jack? I am thinking at the edge of the belly pan on the left side of the steps. Some sealing will be necessary but would avoid having to penetrate the shell. Any thoughts?

No, the Sony does not have an external amp, except the subwoofer.
It has a built-in 4 channel amp that powers the front and rear speakers and a sub output to a powered/amplified subwoofer.
The Sony Bluetooth interface is really easy to pair and use with either the stereo face controls or the remote.

Thanks m.hony. Is there a special speaker you need to purchase, I tried hitting the pairing on the stereo, then I hit the pairing button on the speaker and they are not connecting.

Ditto that...

Tough to find easy listening the further south you go

We do that as well, but during football season I would like to be able to listen to the ball games, so that is what I am trying to accomplish, but thanks for the interest. I guess I am not as nice as most of you, if my neighbor has their entertainment loud enough for me to hear, I politely go over and ask them if they can please turn it down a bit, they usually do without any issues. Most campers are just trying to have fun after a long work week.

The Sony Bluetooth function lets you play music from a source (like an iPhone) through the AS speakers via Bluetooth. I'm unaware of any feature of the Sony unit that would let you play music from the Sony to a separate Bluetooth speaker. The Sony receives Bluetooth signals, but does not broadcast them, as far as I know. Joe

What Jayseejay said-
The Sony receives Bluetooth signal from a smart phone or tablet, but does not transmit a Bluetooth signal to another device.

We use Fugoo speakers. Not a lot of base but decent Bluetooth speakers and they are water proof...

Nothing expensive or needing extra power. And no it doesn't get really loud. But it gets loud enough to hear sitting in your chair with your drink, and no danger of being "that person" bothering everyone else around you.

So what you are telling me is that I can have outdoor stereo with two smartphones and two red Solo® cups? 😜

What we do is use an IPAD (or my cell phone) as the source of all our music. For inside the AS, we use a Belkin Hands free that connects to the Sony radio aux port, and receives power from the cigarette lighter in the top cupboard (by the stereo). It also comes with a USB port so you can also use it to power up any USB devices. The Belkin connects via Bluetooth to the cell phone / tablet. Low cost and quite handy. I leave it always plugged in. Link to it is:

http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Hands-F.../dp/B004CLYJ2I

For outside (or anywhere we want), we use a JBL charge portable indoor/outdoor Bluetooth speaker. Several versions at different prices, but the ~$60 works surprisingly good ( I thought better than the much more expensive Bose). Can buy at most stores, a link is:
