Are you just getting a stand alone DVD player and hook it to your Lcd? It is a Dam* shame that these Concertones are such pieces of , well you know.
No, my Concertone was just a radio with CD player and surround sound receiver built in. I use a stand alone DVD player that now sends audio signals into the aux. input on the front of the new JVC. no LCD TV. just a good old fashioned (read heavy) 19" Tube TV. I couldn`t find a speaker switch switch other than the $40 one at Radio Shack. so I used four small push on/push off switches to control the outside and inside rear speakers total of $9. the inside fronts I can fade out with the radio. I`ll try and get some pics tonite! and it sounds worlds better than the non-CONERTone that was originally in thier.

I`ll try and get some pics tonite!

Hope they got the Conertone's fixed. The one in my new 2008 27BHSS works pretty slick - just a little hiss in the surround sound, which is pretty cool for action movies (we've never had it before). Also, I wish the minimum volume was a little lower on the surround sound. I love being able to sit outside and listen to quiet music on the outside speakers, knowing that the next campsite over they can't hear it. That works great!

Had my concertone zx500, replaced w/ zx600. Only problem I have now is that I have to put the lcd tuner on a channel, then the concertone to tv and put it on the same channel as surround. W/ a dvd, Have to swich lcd to a differt source mode to get it to work w/ both picture and surrond. Is this normal w/ the new replacements(dealer says it its)?

c is the outside speakers, you must not have that option. it could be added easily.

If you pull the stereo out. there is a wiring diagram on the back, you may see some unused speaker wires, get a small speaker, push the C and see if you get sound through those wires, I believe I had some extra speaker wires back there, I also do not have outside speakers, good luck!!!

if you have the button on the front you have the wires on the back. like he said the wiring diagram is on top of the unit once u get it out. you just have to mount marine speakers outside and run the wires. i ordered mine with the outdoor speakers. but i have had it out many times. the wires will be there behind the unit.

thank you both very much for the info, we will try that on the next venture out, if I could ask one more question please, when we were looking at the system, we were a bit lost as to how to get the unit out, could you please shed some light on it, I am very grateful for all your help, we didnt want to push or pull to hard on the unit, for fear of breaking something, hubby figured it had to come out, just couldnt figure out how to go about it,,we are looking forward to getting the speakers outside,,thanks ::
