    hi
    Has anyone got a sound bar in their motorhome?
    Just wondering if it can be powered on 12v or if it can take its power from the TV?

    I've got one in the house and it requires a 230v feed.

    Just trying to improve the poor TV tinny sound.

    A small inverter and you can use a tv and sound bar from the house.

    I use a pair of USB powered speakers from Maplins, superior sound quality for only £15. TV speakers are tiny and tinny, and are often at the back of the TV.

    No sound bar but when I want better sound , I either plug TV into Motorhome stereo or use a HDMX Jam speaker. Even the Jam give a better sound.

    Bose Sound Dock! It's great. 220 VAC but then both TV's are big domestic jobs and the run by a Sky+ HD box so the inverter has to be on anyway so another few watts is neither here or there.

    Also great for music in the van.

    Bose stuff is a rip off. Get yourself a cheap pair of Bluetooth speakers off Ebay for about £20. Most people wouldn't even notice the difference.

    I would have thought it would be easier to wire the TV sound to the van's stereo, that's what I've done on my van.

    Not heard of BOLSE, but £20 is a bit more like it. the BOSE unit is about £150

    We use something similar to the Bolse but it's made by Taotronics. Blue tooth or cable with on board rechargeables and a micro usb port, was about £25. Originally bought for the tablet.

    I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you there,

    There's No possible way on this planet can you compare Bose quality with £20 Ebay "quality"!!!

    yes it's more expensive but for a bloody good reason!
