RE: Help understanding Stereo Power

I bought the Jensen JWM6A and installed it yesterday. It sounds pretty good. Definitely better than the Jensen AWM965 that was in my camper before. Reasons for going with another Jensen were....Same footprint. No modification needed. Same plug and play harness so no wiring issues. Had all the features I wanted and needed. Price was reasonable. We use the camper 20-30 days a year. Not worth a huge investment for that amount of time. If we ever full time or even "half time" and get a nicer camper, we'll consider an aftermarket setup. Thanks for all of your help! All good sound reasons. Happy listening:)

RE: Help understanding Stereo Power

Which of the following stereos for RV's offer the most power to drive the speakers. Assume there will be 2 inside speakers and 2 outside speakers. Also assume that I already know that none of these are good and I would be better off going with an aftermarket setup. I'm just trying to understand the power spec since it's so vague on web sites and in manuals. I know RMS means Root Mean Square and refers to continuous power and the spec to look at rather than Peak power output but which one are company's referring to if they only state one and aren't specific like the Jensen. Jensen JWM6A has 3 Zone/8 Speaker Outputs with a Power Output of 6W X 8 iRV34 says Total Continuous Power Output 50W and has three zones Furrion DV3300 States 4X40W on the webpage but in the manual states Maximum Power Output 4X24W RMS and has 2 zones. Unfortunately, the companies are not required to use one value to rate their power output. The most accurate power spec would be the one rated RMS at a stated THD across a frequency range into a stated load (ex. 20W RMS @1% THD, 40-17K Hz @4 ohms). If the units you are comparing do not list the spec with the same values it would be almost impossible to directly rate them. Also, power and volume are not directly related. The volume is also a function of efficiency of the speakers. It does not take a lot of power to produce a loud sound with the right speaker types. Typically any unit producing a true 10 watts of power will fill a room 12 x 12 with enough sound to drive you out. It all depends on your quality of product.

RE: Help understanding Stereo Power

I'm not looking to blow out the campground. I just want enough power so music sounds good. I put in Polk speakers inside and outside and the Jensen that came with my camper doesn't have enough power to make much of a difference from the cheap speakers that came with the camper. I'm not going to get an amp and subwoofer and spend a ton of money. I just want something that isn't total garbage and sounds ok. Adding a pancake under-seat sub-woofer will fill in the cheap tinny sound of any RV stereo system for the interior sound. It doesn't have to be loud, it just has to be "there".

RE: Help understanding Stereo Power

If you're looking to blow out the CG, go to gear the South Central Lowriders use. There's no reason to use Jensen.. go to Alpine, Kenwood, etc., and add an external amp, the power of your choice

Stereo/DVD player Options

My Travel Trailer came with a Jensen AWM965 DVD, AM/FM, CD player and the DVD player stopped working. I never did like it because the sound wasn't very good even after replacing the crappy speakers with Polk speakers both inside and outside. It lacked bluetooth, HDMI, it's very low power, the USB isn't the type to charge anything etc. but it worked until now so I kept it. My wife enjoys watching DVD's and I enjoy listening to music. Since I have to replace it anyway, now would be the time to upgrade to something much better. Most after market units that are any good are touchscreen types for cars. My wife wouldn't want to watch a DVD on a 7" screen and there's no reason to have something playing on a TV and a small screen at the same time so there's no need for that type of unit. I've looked at the new Jensen's but they are all very low power which would mean the sound wouldn't be improved. I've also looked at the Furrion latest model and although they have a little more power, I'm hesitant because every stereo/DVD that are in RV's are cheap and there are an overwhelming number of issues and complaints with all the manufacturers. I'm limited to the same space footprint (9.25" X 6.25" X 7") and want to stay with 12V options because we do dry camp. What have any of you audiofiles/vidiofiles done to improve your watching/listening experience?

RE: TV tuner quit working

Jensen TVs claim to be "RV ready". They claim a ruggedized chassis and higher temperature tolerances. Both may be true but whether it makes a difference is debatable. The average TV you can get at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Amazon or whoever will probably serve just as well. I have not seen anything to prove otherwise. The performance of the television will be based on the same as how it performs at home. The biggest problem I have seen with RV televisions is poor mounts and poor mounting to the RV.

RE: Universal remote for Jensen RV dvd/radio/mp3 unit

Hi all, Has anybody use d a universal remote for the Jensen AWM970 radio? My remote does work but I would like a single remote for the tv and tv unit. I tried with my harmony. but the 970 radio has a feature that confuses many a universal remote. things like on/off aren't really on/off but a cycle between the two states. same with selecting some of the other functions. the factory remote gets that figured out somehow but many of the universal ones can't. I also wanted one remote and tried and tried to get the harmony to do what the factory remotes would do, TV also a jensen. finally gave up.

RE: Jensen JWM990 Theater-Style Wallmount Stereo

I installed this Jensen head unit in my 5th wheel trailer in 2015 and have no complaints. I liked the three separate speaker zones, HDMI output, Bluetooth and 12vdc power. I mounted it in a custom made drawer that also holds a Jensen monitor that also runs on 12 vdc.

Direct TV sound connection to Jensen

I have a Direct TV DVR connected via HDMI to Samsung TV. I want to have the sound output go to my Jensen receiver to speakers. If I am watching a DVD the sound comes through my ceiling speakers. I want that for when I am watching Direct TV. Can I do it and what cables from where to where can I plug. My Jensen connects to my TV via Red RCA. Any help would be nice.

RE: replace factory dvd/stereo in trailer

Pull it then get whichever brand/model you like. Course depending on opening you might have to make it larger or get cover plate to install. Audio shops have LOTS of choices and installation options. I like Clarion and JVC brands I put a JVC in my last truck. I liked that unit. I put a Jensen in my current truck. It's OK. Both are double din DVD/ Stereo. Either one as well as many others would work. I was asking more about the fit in the cabinet face. I should have searched the internet first. I just found a bunch of them. They are referred as "wall mount" rv stereos. they look to be the same size as the cover plate on the stock one. So... has anyone replaced theirs with a recommended unit that is "wall mount". I am not looking to have anyone install it for me. I just want to find a good unit on the internet and install it myself. Thanks!

RE: Jensen JRV212T Blank Screen

Don't know if you found your answer but it you look on some of the other forums you will find that probably thousands of the Jensen JRV212T have had the same issue including mine in my almost new rig. I am amazed at the number of people with the exact same problem and it's been going on for YEARS people! I don't care if I bought a cheaper motorhome or any of this other nonsense. The complete failure of this radio has been now going on for years and companies keep putting them in and Jensen keeps making them. The only ones we're hearing about are those people that are members of these forums. I can only imagine how many of these have failed industry wide. At $500-$900 a pop this is just wrong! THIS PIECE OF **** SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLED years ago but instead I get a recall to have my shower door replaced because it will burn too hot?

RE: Jensen TV shuts off after 10 minutes

I just replaced my Jensen TV. I got a 28' Samsung which has twice the viewing area of the Jensen. The Jensen works perfectly but is small. The drawback is that the Samsung needs 120 VAC. Not so bad since we mostly use RV parks with shore power. I have an inverter but not really got it functional yet. Considering the cost of a replacement Jensen, I would recommend doing something along the same lines.

Jensen TV shuts off after 10 minutes

have tried pretty much everything but am completely open to new suggestions. Even took TV off wall and brought to electronics store who said it worked all day for him. reconnected it back to coach and shuts off again after 10 minutes with no problems turning back on. Power was tested with ample voltage to unit, also changed out inline fuse and wire to glass, and there is no timer set either.
