New JBL sound system

Does anyone have a unit with the new JBL sound system?

Is there a sub or a hookup to be able to add a sub??

Any tips on how to configure it? Does it sound good?

Sub

Hello, it looks like in ther back of the system has an optical port. With my sonos soundbar at home I use an optical cable and a power source. That's it. Hope it helps.
Could you buy any chance help me connect to blue tooth? Jayco 373bhok

Not Happy With JBL Sound System

We bought a Eagle on Thursday and the JBL sound system in ours is a pathetic joke, unless there is something major missing or disconnected in our unit. No bass, tinny sounding in all modes. Pocket transistor radio could give it a run for it's money. Hope I am just uninformed about it, but seems to be flashy looking junk for our use. Very hard on the ears. Only looks impressive. Someone please prove me wrong.

We have a 36FBTS on order - was curious can you play the TV sound through the JBL like a sound bar?

Yes there is a sub out on the back of the unit. I am installing a low profile sub above the TV this weekend (Theater Solutions SUB8S) on my 332CBOK. I am hoping to improve the sound quality by doing this as the unit was not impressive on my first use. I found in 'classic' mode the unit sounded good for my taste but not what I am used to with JBL.

I also have this in my new 357MDOK that we just brought home a couple weeks ago. I haven't played with it much, but I also was unimpressed for a JBL sound system. I was looking at adding a sub also and noticed in the manual that the sub can only be used on zone A which in my unit were the two speakers on either side of the main unit.

As for playing the TV thru it, yes it appears you can however I don't believe it is setup this way from the factory.

we got the same JBL in the 377 RLBH. The sub on ours is in the pantry and had all of the setting set to higher frequency, low gain, and low volume. Once the settings were changed it was better. Not great probably enough power, but could use speaker upgrade. We seem to have an hdmi cable from the tV to the JBL, but wasn't able to make it work the first time. We just got it and have just started playing with it.

That sounds promising because it doesn't look like there is anywhere to locate a soundbar -we won't have the unit until April but, you know how it is with "pre-planning" - thanks

I have seen online where people have added the sound bar under the tv so it comes up with the televator. If you don't have a subwoofer and wanted to add one. either behind the fireplace, in the pantry, or if it is a narrow profile woofer in the side table would be my suggestion. If you are really into good sound, you may add an amp and replace all of the speakers, but we are good with the current sound setup, but our expectations were pretty low.

I don't know if we are picky enough for a Sub Woofer but, a sound bar is desirable - in looking at the JAYCO Brochure of the TV when it is up on the elevator I do not see enough room for a sound bar. If the TV sound will come through the JBL speakers that would be great and maybe later just upgrade the speakers.

I am hoping the "Whisper Quite" A/C really are less noisy than my present Dometics

Got time to play with the JBL sound and TV and it does play TV audio through the JBL speakers, when you press "ACR" button (think that is the one). TV audio definitely improves, when playing through the JBL, but still expected more from the JBL. As others note, we expected more from a well known stereo brand. Maybe we just need to do some more exploring to find the features we don't know exists with this system. I don't know if there is a subwoofer in our Eagle or not. Could definitely use one.

Cheers, Gary

Last week I added a subwoofer and it made a tremendous improvement to the sound. The installation was very easy.
