RE: Playing Android via trailer Jensen radio?

The Jambox Mini by Jawbone would fill a trailer with pretty decent sound easily. They also make a bluetooth adapter that plugs into a 3.5 aux input jack on your Jensen radio. The link is: http://www.amazon.com/HTC-Bluetooth-Streaming-Stereo-Adapter/dp/B00CAYAIL0

RE: Playing Android via trailer Jensen radio?

This is a trailer CD/radio. So - yes, when parked, of course. Yes, I tried Andorid through another stereo - at home. A better system, so the flaws in Android sound were even more obvious. Yes, I tried "a different MP3 player" - sort of. Connecter laptop to the same Aux input via the same 3.5mm cable. Better sound. The problem - I think - is with Android amplifier, not with 3.5mm cable. Ideally, the connection should not use the Android analog amplifier and 3.5mm jack, i.e. it has to be USB or HDMI or Bluetooth. But Jensen CD/radio only has 3.5mm Aux input. It's a 2011 trailer, what were they thinking about?

Playing Android via trailer Jensen radio?

Is there any easy and inexpensive way to do this without quality loss? I know, Jensen receiver and overhead speakers are not for audiophiles, and neither can I say that have an ear for music. But when I play CD on that Jensen system first, and then compare it to 128 vbr FLAC files from Android connected to Aux input of the radio via 3.5mm cable - oh my God... Could've ripped CD into lowest quality MP3 file same well. I think that pre-amplifier of Android does this to music before it goes into Jensen receiver. Darn thing is even catching radio-interference from somewhere. What can be done to improve the sound? Getting a car receiver with USB input? Then I won't be able to browse and play files on the Android screen when USB cable is attached, and on-screen menu of those receivers is a joke. Get some MP3 player with better pre-amplifier and with SD card slot? Forget the whole thing and get $$$ Ipod with $$$ Ipod dock (good docks are costly), and end up with an average sound from small speakers and a system so sophisticated that it stops working after a few months?

RE: GPS on forest river sunseeker class C

I doubt it is a Ford unit. Is it a Magnadyne, or a Jensen?

RE: Subwoofer in MH

I'm not sure I fully understand. Is it not working, or not working well? If Jensen designed it that way, I'd be inclined to leave it alone. Not that J makes anything of quality... Jensen has no say in where Forest River decided to put it. :)

Subwoofer in MH

My Sunseeker Class C came with a Jensen in-dash head unit that is also the house stereo. There is a Jensen subwoofer unit mounted inside the forward dinette base. The dinette base is fully enclosed. Shouldn't there be an opening in the base to let the sound out? If so, how big? I would use a heating grille to cover the hole. EDIT TO ADD: Just to be clear, I'm talking about the dinette base. It is completely enclosed, and a separate self-contained subwoofer unit is inside it. This is what it looks like. This is inside the enclosed dinette base: http://www.jensenrvdirect.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/j/x/jxa8ba2.jpg width=320

RE: Car stereo MOD and what kind of speakers?

I guess that was pointed to me. The weather proof speakers sound great. These were already installed but if I was adding them I probably would have separated themmore that the few inches shown here. The JENSEN car radio sounds great and being a CAR RADIO always gets great reception with the simple car radio antenna... ADDED NOTE: I also added speaker covers on back of the speakers behind the outside wall. This was a cabinet area and I thought I needed to insulate it more from cool outside air. I guess they call these speakers marine speakers. They are 5-6 inches in DIA... Roy Ken thanks... I guess you could call me a music (sound) snob. Growing up my dad always had the "best of the best" when it came to quality systems and speakers (in his car and his house) Our house would rumble with sounds of Roy Orbison, Engelbert Humperdink, and the Mama & Papas (just a few of his favorite compilations) It was nothing for him to sink 1000's into his equipment. Now here I am wanting something that is going to sound good, but almost zero knowledge about what to buy... any and all opinions is appreciated.

RE: Car stereo MOD and what kind of speakers?

My OFF-ROAD POPUP has the car stereo unit in it. The JENSEN Car Radio front-back fade setup is for stereo speakers inside the POPUP and outside the POPUP. Thats pretty neat having Stereo speakers on the patio side outside wall under the awning. It has weather proof speakers on the outside... http://www.houstonrvcenter.com/rental_int_images/img_138_3_10.jpg height=300 I did another mod to the wiring of the CAR RADIO unit. As you are probably aware it will have the 12VDC lead as well as an IGNITION 12VDC wire to hook up. I used a RADIO SHACK Lever Slide Switch for the hot ignition lead 12VDC wire. This way I can leave the radio turned on and use the slide switch like when you turn the key ignition ON and OFF. This saves your radio PUSH BUTTON channel selections so you don't have to go setup all the channels again everytime you turn it on. You can see the lever switch to the right of the radio here. http://i.imgur.com/tjWzR1M.png height=300 When i pack up for transport I will turn the radio off with its ON-OFF switch but after we setup at the camp ground then I use the ignition Lever switch to turn it on and off.

RE: What stereos have good radio reception?

The best radios I have used in the Rv trailrs are CAR RADIOs. They are engineered to work from the weakest of antennas and have all the extra circuits inplace to eliminate most man made noises... Can't beat a good ole JENSEN CAR RADIO setup wired into your trailer 12VDC wiring. Then I get to use the front to back slider to run stereo speakers inside the trailer or outside the trailer or both from the radio... Most of these radios comes with music DVDs as well. Roy Ken

RE: More OTA Antenna Questions

Personally I would never go with a UHF only, VHF/UHF would me (and has been) my choice. We have an AntennaCraftHD-360 (RadioShack) and find it works well. Of course, unlike the bat-wing I have to erect it, but it out performs the Jensen POS that came with the rig ("44" stations vrs "6") and putting a hand-crank antenna is not possible.

RE: How cold is too cold for LCD/flat panel tv?

It almost depends on the manufacturer. I know the Jensen TV that I have in my trailer is shockproof and cold proof so I never worry about my own stuff. I'd think you'd probably be fine leaving it where it is, no matter what mfg makes your unit. In sub zero temps, the TV is probably fine. I haven't read any horror stories about people losing their TV's on RV.net yet! WoodGlue

Broadcast From Win7 Laptop To TV

I have some ideas on how I'd do it, but I'm not sure that I'm not looking at too much effort and equipment to do it. I have a Win 7 laptop and a Jensen TV in the TT. I'd like to be able to broadcast content from my laptop to the TV. I have a MiFi it that matters. How would you go about this? Thanks, WoodGlue

RE: HD antenna

Speaking of t/t antennas......... The Jensen brand Omni direction that came with the unit is defective. The mfg is replacing it with a digital rv tv antenna. The model # is ca2500b from continu.us This antenna looks like a clone between a omnidirection and a batwing. It does not rotate nor crank. Has anyone had any experience with this antenna. web site is continu.us Thank you gasmantexas

RE: Jensen AWM 960 Replacement

Looks all I can find is another Jensen to fit in the hole in the entertainment center. Have seen that mod# on EBay for $168.00 to $199.0 compared to reg. $373.00 Going to a more normal DIN mount unit opens up a number of possibilities that sound better and cost less than the Jensen. If you're at all handy you can fab up a surround from some plexiglass, sheet metal or even a small cabinet door to fill the hole. Barring that come custom stereo shops are very good at making up sharp-looking installs for unique applications.

RE: Jensen AWM 960 Replacement

Not sure if it fits but I replaced my 910 with this: AWM975 It has HDMI to feed both video and audio to my TV. It will NOT do surround through its speakers. Works for me. Looks all I can find is another Jensen to fit in the hole in the entertainment center. Have seen that mod# on EBay for $168.00 to $199.0 compared to reg. $373.00 I got mine for $249 new from rvcams.com in 2012.

RE: Jensen AWM 960 Replacement

Name brand car stereos like Pioneer, Sony, Clarion, JVC just to name a few are typically used to replace Jensen and a bunch of other garbage OEM RV stereos... Amazon or Crutchfield are typically good places to start your replacement hunt...
