V3605 Fireplace and Subwoofer

Just FYI.....for those 3605 owners.

So I was dying to figure out where they mounted the subwoofer, if there actually was one. So the general conclusion was if there was one, it would likely be behind the fireplace. I pulled the fireplace out yesterday, which was very easy, and sure enough there it was.

Here are some pics if anyone is interested. The space was decently clean, found a few screws and some construction waste but overall it was a nightmare. The wires were not zip tied at all, they left those hanging just like they fell. I cleaned the area up a bit.

On the sub, they had all the volume and freq controls all down to minimums. If you want to hear your sub, I highly recommend getting behind there and making some adjustments.

Heading out to the X-Games in a few hours....1st time out "boondocking".

Jon - I assume you will be dry camping out at COTA. Please post up on your experience as I'm thinking of doing the same for MotoGP next year. I stayed at a campground this year when I was down there but having the ability to walk back to my trailer when I want a beverage or to chill would be nice.

Jon,
I have not looked that deeply into how the fireplace is mounted. I see you said it was easy to pull, what is securing it into place?

That's my question...how is the fireplace attached?

I need to get in behind the cabinets above the fireplace to wire in some DirecTV Sender/Receiver sets. Knowing how much extra coax there is, would be very helpful!!

Pirate 4 screws is all that holds it in and it slides right out. There is a black cover that's covers screws, lift up and comes right off

Sorry, it was a long weekend! Yes, i went cheap and "boondocked" out at COTA. So here's my two cents, for what its worth. It was $200 difference between the dry lot and the full hookups lot, distance wise about the same. The dry lot is gravel access roads with pasture style spots, 20X40 was what they gave us. They hired a local RV rental company to come out and "manage" the weekend, and they were pretty strict on the rules (generator off by 1am, no driving after 11, etc).

For us, its a no brainer, next year we will opt for full hookups. The heat alone at night was miserable, we love air conditioning and the ability to shower as many times a day as we want is worth every penny! We hated the dust at the dry lot too.

Pulled mine out last night very clean & neat. My only problem is when I turned the subwoofer up some I got nothing but hum & feedback. Something seems to be either wired wrong or this subwoofer is N/G. Sure not going to take it back for warranty as vacation is just a couple of weeks away. Anyone have any ideas?

You could connect an audio source directly to the woofer to see if it's TU or not. Something with a decent output will drive the speaker, an old radio for example.
