Clarion Sound System on Classic 2015

We have a 2015 Classic with the Clarion Sound System and the two TVs. Does anyone know how (or if you can) mute the sound in the bedroom only when running the main TV on the Clarion Sound System? There is a remote for the sound system mounted in the bedroom, but there does not appear to be any may to mute only the speakers in the bedroom.

Thanks

Tony

I was under the impression that a Polk Audio sound system was installed in the 2015 classic.

The clarion unit in my current unit(waiting on classic to be delivered this week) is insanely complicated to operate. I pretty much gave up on fine tuning it because I couldn't figure the thing out! I hope the classic unit is more intuitive. If not, I will need a another college degree to learn how to operate it.

They're just car radios, aren't they? We just use the "Fader" control to set it to Front or Rear to turn off the other set.

Yes fader. But it seems that the sub woofer is tied to the front pair of speakers. So, if you fad all to the rear, you might lose the sub.

Same "wonderful" radio system installed in the 2015 23D Int'l Serenity. Instruction manual written in broken English. Probably the cheapest unit Airstream could buy.

After 6 week on the road, I think this is a pice of junk. I can not tell you how many times I tried to make it work.

Will change it out when I get home.

I have the Sony version of this problem in our 2014 Flying Cloud 25. As stated earlier, you need to figure out how to get to the fader control in menus to reduce the volume wherever you don't want it. I hate this Sony.

As far as the sub-woofer is concerned there may be a separate control for it but I only "mute" the bedroom speakers so I haven't looked for that feature on the Sony.

I added a switch to the Collins IC 100 sub because I don't want to power its amp when dry camping. Its power is remote switched by the blue wire from the radio--when the radio is playing the sub is powered.

Actually, I was mistaken. We have the Polk system in our 2015 Classic (my apologies to SJCR in their earlier post). Strangely, the set of manuals which came with the trailer contained both the Polk and Clarion systems and for some reason, I thought it was a Clarion system. Everyone who mentioned it above was right, you can reduce and/or mute the sound in either the bedroom using the Fader control which can be accessed through the Polk menu system - I tried it this morning with success.

The subwoofer has some controls on it. Think there are two knobs. One for volume and the other for cutoff????

Right, I'm not sure what they do. One seems to be a gain, the other??? I think msmoto knows.

Do not know

Hi, On the Classic, I have no idea of the controls. But, most decent subwoofers have a gain (volume essentially) and cut off (frequency where it begins to emphasize the bass notes).

As a side note, on my Serenity, the sub was mounted so it was impossible to access these controls.....

If, one has the Clarion sub, take it apart, pack the interior with either a closed cell foam or lots of insulation, remount the sub to the frame with better attachment, and I used a piece of foam for a gasket, and make certain all is tight. This improves the sub greatly, creating less "booming" and while it uses a bit more power, the result I obtained was to get a much "tighter" sound in the 50-100 hz range, actually acceptable with proper adjustments.

Also, I remounted my sub on the fat side rather than on its back. It needs to be firmly attached to the floor. And, a power switch was installed as it was on whenever 12v power to the trailer was on, killing the batteries due to constant power drain.
