Have to tried hooking the Tv to the AUX input on your Radio / CD player / DVD player. I did mine, and it plays thru the coach speakers.

Wow, thanks for all the replies! I clicked on the ZVOX link and this "sounds" (no pun intented) like the exact fix for what is/are my hearing issues. Hoping the volume is high to help further drown out the a/c unit overhead. But, overall, the description of what this soundbar does should greatly assist with enjoying a DVD while on the beach relaxing between tides. As an aside, they say my hearing may improve over time as the nerve damage from the tumor may regrow and make a connection from the eardrum back to the brain. The body is a mysterious, marvelous thing. Thanks again for some alternatives!

We had the same issue, we bought a sub woofer and 2 powered speakers . Plugged into the headphone jack, worked great. Our generator was right under the dinette and AC right above so log if extra noise in small space. Our RV was only 25'

We bought the Zvox soundbar from HSN for $129.It works well but has it's own remote. You may be able to sync it with your TV remote.

It has much better sound than tiny speakers on flat screen TV's. Movies with a lot of "hushed tones" and high speed babble on commercials is irritating especially if you are hard of hearing like me. Headphones may be another solution for you if you can leave regular sound on for your wife.

Now $149

I wear hearing aids. Our TV audio goes wireless to my hearing aids. I stepped into someones home once, while there tv was on and thought how poor the audio was, then realized how great mine is to my hearing aids.

headphones? especially the noise cancelling ones.
That's what I was thinking, as long as you are watching TV by yourself.

The Bose Solo 5 solved my issues just like yours. The sound enhance feature is great. And the universal remote that comes with this unit is superb as well.

From what I read, the ZVOX allows user to increase the AUDIO/VOICE portions separate from the overall volume of the program which sounds perfect in most situations I've experienced (just can't hear the dialog clearly). It has 6 levels to increase the volume of the words....I'll post a reply once it arrives and I try it out. It would be nice to not be blasting the volume all the time just to hear what's being spoken.

Learn something every day!

I might try that Zvox gadget. Amazon'll let me try it for 30 days.

I tried a Bose bar, but wasn't impressed -- Costco got it back within their 30 days too.
