Enough, time to change

I have a new 2018 Sport 22 with a JVC model KD-AV41BT sound system. Sad to say this thing must go. Any recommendations for a replacement for a system the will do all the things this should have done, mainly to be able to play the TV audio through the house speakers? The TV with the volume turned up as high as possible is just adequate, and when the air is on, can't be heard at all.
Thanks,

Welcome Aboard!! 👍

If or when we need the TV sound we bring the companions.
"BREAKING NEWS">>> we rarely bring the TV...thats the one thing we try to get away from.🤣
We use the Bose Wave for tunes.

I tried to use the built in bluetooth in my tv and replacement stereo. While it worked, the delay was excessive and I could not get the sound and picture synchronized. I presume the problem was in the stereo as the TV should work with bluetooth headphones. Next I’m going to try a transmitter receiver pair or a separate receiver I can plug into the aux port on my stereo.

I just installed a
Kenwood KDC-X702 in my Airstream. My TV sounds great through it. It also has blue tooth and everything else you can imagine. Sounds incredible.

Hi I pulled up the specs for this radio and I do not see and DVD drive? Am I missing it? I have a 2018 AS Sport FB and the TV sound is terrible and no usable if the AC is turned on. I can't seem to find a headphone jack on my TV not sure if I'm missing it or there just isn't one. Major flaw on AS part with this set up.

Thanks,
On my 2013 FC with a Sony receiver I had to set the receiver to CD2. Are you sure your receiver doesn't have some odd setting also?

Our 2016 28 foot international serenity came equipped with the sound system tied into the DVD and Tele. I "assumed" the same year and later setups would be similar. Confusing.

We went for 5 years with low sound from the television until, thanks to this Forum, I was informed of the CD2 selection on the Sony system....voila, we now hear the television through the speakers!!

Hi

I don't think we have ever turned the sound system on in our trailer. When we watch the TV, the internal speakers are plenty good enough. It's just the weather or some random YouTube video if the TV is on at all ....

We use the TV's optical audio output and go to a small amplifier. The amplifier drives our two sets of headphones. Nice volume, easy to understand and we don't hear the air conditioner. An added advantage is that we don't worry about disturbing our neighbors.

I have 28’ International and just put it on AUX. Plenty of sound. Could be just where the speakers are located which are right above where we sit on the couch. Where are your speakers located?

Thanks,
Get in to your menus on the stereo. There is likely a TV input there, but it won't say so. It'll be an AUX input, or even a secondary sub-input in the CD input. Look at the back of your tv. Are there two RCA cables in the "Audio Out" positions? If so, those go to the stereo, and you can play the TV sound through it. Just have to find the right setting.
