This experiment didn't go well. In order to get audible sound from the external speaker, the source volume has to be turned way up, like Spinal Tap volume. I guess the external speaker selection is using a variable output from the source.
Does anyone know of a wireless external speaker solution that actually works with this setup?
Several things to be aware of.
Please see the following thread:
Look for Post #27, which I posted when I started my quest to fix the stereo in our 3 month old 30' Classic.
While the post is long, there is some info in there from the manufacturer of the ancillary hardware that Airstream uses with its audio systems.
There are specific issues associated with the way the line out jack is wired for the units that come equipped with the wireless speaker option.
To use the wireless speaker that came with our factory installation we had to have the wireless unit plugged into the line out jack and the three way position switch set in the "Out" position. The "Both" position was only for the speakers in the front of the TT to be on as well as the speakers in the bedroom.
The key item is that the line out jack does not have a ground wire on it because the wireless unit the factory installs for the wireless speaker option provides a floating ground. If the wireless unit you purchased does NOT provide a floating ground it will not work. What you describe sounds like it does not.
Please read the info in the middle of the post; it is too easy to damage your radio if you do not do things properly.
Hope this helps...
