Should have either 2 or 4 ceiling speakers and the unit will have an A-B position and an AB position. "A" being interior "B" exterior and A+B for both being on at the same time. TV can also run to those speakers. Should play CDs and DVDs also and a plug-in for your music.
Now mine does this and it's a 2010 standard unit.

The Jensen head unit like mine and most may also have A,B,C. C is to operate the outside speakers.

Mine has 4. They are low quality paper cone speakers and one of mine came from the factory with a torn cone.

OK while on the topic of TT speakers we all no that the factory speakers are not the best quality. So has anyone found a good quality replacement that requires no modification to install?

The factory speakers are typically 6.5" in diameter. I used a set of Pioneer TS-G1644R but my DW doesn't like the black grills. They didn't require modifying the speaker opening but I had to drill in a new hole or two since the existing mounting flanges didn't match up. I wouldn't call the upgrade a big improvement in sound but it it noticeable. I few others have used Polk Audio's with white grills....a better speaker IMO.

Use one of those hooked paint can openers you get free at Home Depot and pry them off...just put something between the tool and the ceiling (like a putty knife) to prevent ceiling damage.

Finding a speaker that will increase quality of sound without enlarging the hole will be difficult. Reason being the better and higher end speakers mostly use larger magnets on the back of the speaker in turn give a better sound.
I know what I'm in the process of doing will be overkill for most but here's my setup in the making.
The output of the Jensen head unit is minimal at best alone so improving the speakers only can work with the power (wattage) supplied to the speaker. I'm in the process of changing over the inside and outside speakers,adding a 200 watt amp for more power, and a 8 inch sub for better bass.Bass is non directional so the sub can be placed anywhere and yet get its full effect.The hole will have to be enlarged some for the speaker magnets in the ceiling. The amp and cross over will be mounted in the cabinet below the original Jenson head unit that I will be keeping. I haven't yet decided what to do about the outside speakers at this time.
Speakers and Amp - Boston Acoustics
Crossover - Sony
Sub - Boston Acoustics
Even with retaining the original Jensen head unit the quality of sound with adding these components will give that deep rich crystal clear sound almost if not equivalent to a high priced home theater system.

I wanted to go that route but the DW said no since we are probably upgrading to a bigger TT next year. I've settled for listening to music over our portable bluetooth Harmon Kardon speaker. I ran the dinette TV output to the Jensen AUX input so we (and the kids) can hear the TV better when the a/c kicks on.
