Major improvement to TV Sound

The speakers in the Jensen TV leave a lot to be desired. Picked up a Vizio sound bar ar Walmart today for $78. Connected it to the Jensen tv with the supplied digital coaxial cable. Huge improvement in the sound.

Question,
I am looking at Vizio sound bar that has a set output volume, which means no more blaring Tv commercials. Does your model have that feature?

Yes, I think it does. They mentioned something about that in the book. I have the model: SB2920-C6. It's got a feature called "DTS True Volume". It connects to the Jensen with a digital coaxial cable which is in the box so you don't have to buy any cables.

I updated my hawk with a cd player that has 2 new things to me, a usb input on the front and a audio input jack in the front for a auxiliary input. I can put literally thousands of albums from cd's or you-tube on a 8 gig usb stick and it will play for a entire trip perfectly, no matter how rough the road is. The other thing is the aux. input, I play the tv sound through it with a mini jack cable throughout the built in speakers in the rv.

How did you mount the sound bar? I have one of those sound bars and was thinking about putting it in the Seneca.

I just set it on the over cab bunk. I put it towards the front of the truck deep into the bunk the the shape of the area gives you an amphitheater type sound.

I have a couple of small BLUETOOTH speakers that will run from a USB adapter setup. This also will sync to any BLUETOOTH capable connection like from your truck radio system etc...

Apparently they will also run from an AUX audio input..

These small speakers have great sound reproducing quality...

I have several BROADCASTIFY Radio Scanners setup using six or so TAB settings and all of these are feeding the computer audio system. I route this out to my bluetooth speakers using the USB BLUETOOTH transmitter adapter.

Makes for a great radio scanner sitting in the yard under the patio or around the bon-fire...

Has a pretty good range around my back yard...

I bet using something like this with the VIZIO/JENSEN poor quality speaker setup would work great too...

This is the Dell 05CC6 AD211 Wireless Portable Speaker I am playing with... (AMAZON)
