Use a 12V car head unit with a smart phone/tablet/laptop to add processing if you like and then into an amp. Car audio wins a lot of shows takes up very little space. Everything is miniaturized today. I remember a Madonna album recorded live with...

With any RV, space is a premium as well as you have to convert the 12V system to 110V for the receiver so you need an inverter running when the receiver is on. Plus, the receiver convert it back to DC anyway. I'm just saying that for the best...

About four years ago replaced electronics with Yamaha AV receivers overhead drivers seat and in an overhead bedroom cabinet.   Can't remember the model number but I'll be going to the coach in a couple of days so if interested I can take pictures.

I bought a Yamaha A/V receiver a year ago to install in the coach and replace the Bose system.
What kind of speakers have you found that are small but still deliver great sound?

Do you want speakers to mount in the overhead or already in enclosures?
