Replacing Wired Multi Room Soundbar

Has anyone replaced their soundbar in the High Country? I didn't think there was a subwoofer, but just read someone found theirs behind the fireplace. I'll have to look there. Hardest problem is finding a WIRED multi-room soundbar since everything is wireless now. Has anyone found one that can service 3 rooms? Thank you!

Not too sure what you're wanting to do, but the sound bar serves the TV it's hooked to. If you have 3 TV's you need 3 sound bars, and sub woofers if wanted.

Need WIRED Multi-Room Sound Bar

The sound bar services the TV in the living room, speakers in the bedroom, and outdoor speakers. Hence, it's a multi-room, 3-zone soundbar. It's very cheap and although the manufacturer sent me a new remote, it still doesn't work. Since the bedroom and outdoor speakers are wired (not wireless), I'm looking for a multi-room (minimum 3-zone) replacement. Just hard to find a wired one now that everything is wireless.

All 3 sets of speakers are plugged into the back with RCA plug connections to your radio and are controlled by the 3 buttons on the unit for current Entertainment systems. The sound bar can be unplugged and would not affect the two other speakers. To remove the radio (for other reason) the 2 vertical covers on the left and right edge have to be removed and unscrew the unit from the wall. There are Sound Bars for less than a $100 at places like Best Buy, Costco and other video stores. The L & R RCA plug pops off, 1 power wire and 1 other wire I believe to the TV. I wanted to get the TV on a separate sound bar, so I don't have to fuss with the buttons on the radio unit in the morning and end up waking another person in the bedroom. My solution is to put 2 book end speakers for the radio and move the sound bar to the TV only because TV speakers are pretty lousy.

Thanks, Dusters. I really like the ability to have my iPad outside controlling the unit's exterior speakers via bluetooth as well as turning the radio on with speakers in the bedroom for the dogs when we're gone. Didn't realize how difficult it would be to find a decent WIRED replacement sound bar!

Yours blew out because Keystone puts cheap junk in there to begin with. I have had 3 Montanas now and all three I just went ahead and installed better sound and TV equipment to begin with.
