Outside TV audio with Magnedyne Stereo/Speakers

Today, I tried my 32" Jensen outside TV with the audio playing to the outside Magnedyne Stereo and speakers. Using a signal from the roof antenna the TV speakers were turned off (in menu settings) and I tried to get good volume over the two outside stereo speakers. But with the volume set to it's fullest limit of 48 the sound was not very loud. If you tuned the stereo to an FM station the same volume setting will blow you away!!

You can turn the TV speakers back on and power all four speakers but that is not ideal either.

Still trying to determine if something is not setup correctly. I checked the component cables going into the Madnedyne outside Stereo and they were correct.

Is it the outdoor entertainment center antenna hookup that you are plugging your TV into?

Yes, I am using the roof winegard antenna to feed a signal to the outside entertainment center 32" Jensen TV. Then on my Magnedyne AM/FM/DVD player I set the mode to AVIN R. This is the rear audio left & right component cables coming from the TV's audio out left & right. I checked the component audio cables and they are correct. But, the volume to the two outside speakers is very low even at 48 which is the highest setting on the Magnedyne. You can turn off the TV speakers in it's menu but this makes no difference. I am beginning to think there is an ohms problem with the TV audio output and the speaker ohms.

If you just play the Magnedyne with an FM station the volume can almost BLOW the speakers.

You need to make sure the TV speakers are OFF and that the audio is set to "fixed" not variable.

The same thing applies to the inside TV (as posted in the video on our Facebook page).

On fixed...it sends a fixed signal to the radio which is then amplified. If it is variable, when you turn the TV down, the signal output to the radio also goes down so you would have to crank up the radio to get a decent signal.

The inside TV in the bunk area, dash unit and speakers work fine with plenty of volume. I need to check the settings on the outside TV, they maybe set incorrectly for the amp. I will look at your video again on settings.

thank you,

I know this post is old, but I am having exact same problem with my JVC outside TV and Magnedyne stereo DVD player . I have checked every cable and tv setting and do not get suitable volume when playing through the radio. Tnis is on a 2014 3051SF Forester so I guessing factory never solved the issue ? Any new info on this problem ?

I didn't really read that first post correctly. The dash Magnadyne feeds the inside TV, not the outside TV.

The outside TV was to be fed from the outside DVD player...unless I'm missing something here.

I need a better description or pictures if what you're trying to do.

OK, I have a Jensen in dash radio/DVD player that feeds inside TV. No problems there.
My problem deals strictly with outside TV which is a 32" Jensen with Magnadyne stereo DVD player underneath. TV audio works on TV . DVD player and radio audio works fine. Problem is : Cannot get suitable audio when audio out from TV is plugged into rear audio of DVD player/radio (and I have changed cables). Tried turning off TV audio and changed DVD unit to Rear Audio,. No sound ... Turn tv speakers back on and turn tv speaker volume all the way up and Magnadyne unit voulme ALL the way up. Then I get a very very low volume from DVD player. I tried same scenario using the front audio input on radio. Same results. Like someone from older post said, sounds like an ohm problem? (Magnadyne model # is M3500DVD)

So you are trying to play "Over the Air Channels" on the outside speakers instead of the TV speakers?

Or are you trying to play DVD's?

Yes. Over the air channels . Sorry I did not make that clear.
DVD's audio plays through the radio speakers as it should, with plenty of volume. Very simply there is an audio output on the TV and audio input on the DVD/Radio unit but when they are connected you don't get the TV audio through the radio. It would not be an issue except audio quality on tv is not the best. Would really sound better if played through radio speakers. But, that may just be how it is. If so I will have to accept that. But this should not be any different than running audio from any tv through an external amp. And thanks for answering so quick.
