+1 on Crutchfield. I've bought home and auto systems from them since the mid 90s and have always been pleased at their knowledge and support. Plus it's nice calling Tech Support and hearing unaccented English.

Oh well, each to their own. No more than we use our Jensen, they have worked perfectly well. My third Jayco and they have all had Jensen in them. Never had any problems. We do run our TV sound through the speakers as well for increased volume. As my hearing is not what it used to be, I probably would not hear any better with one of those others everyone speaks so highly of. We never listen to the radio anyway. Rather sit out side as much as possible and listen to the sounds of nature.
Just MHO.

Our stock surround sound AM/FM/ DVD player died. It never really worked well anyways. I don't know if we will replace it. We never used it much anyways.

We have no complaints w/ the Jenson. No one puts a top quality unit, only the basics. If you are a audiophile, plan on upgrading the unit and the speakers.

I'm missing the remote to ours but it still works, just cant tune the radio. If anyone has a remote laying around that they'd like to get rid of for a few bucks please let me know.

Hmm... From what I recall 35 years or so ago, they were no better back then either. On the other hand, for a reasonable price they made a pretty decent 6x9 car speaker that a 16 yo could afford!

It's not that they don't work, they are just crappy quality, both in terms of the unit itself and the sound quality. By itself it is close to a $400 dollar option. For less than half that you can put in something far better. I'm no serious audiophile but I can easily tell the difference. I won't replace the one that's in my X20E just to replace it. But I won't get another when it breaks.

I'll give you mine if it's the same. I'll take a picture of it in the morning

I put a square of stick on Velcro on my Jenson remote and stuck it next to the unit. It's so small and thin, I could never find it.
