I've got my replacement unit sitting right here.
I'll be installing it later today and trying it out.

Well I installed my replacement Concertone.
The original had terrible hum in surround sound mode.
It also had high volume even on volume level 1.
The replacement has hiss all the time in all modes.
It hisses on CDs, FM and DVD play.
ARGH!!!!!!!

You'd think that Forest River would realize they are making a LOT
of customers mad with this crappy sound system!!
I know it is the single reason we are unsatisfied with our purchase.....

Angry

i swapped 12 times if i remeber correctly. it was at least 11 times. keep after them. mine is working fine. they need to come good on all this trouble. it is very frustrating to have a brand new unit and the entertainment not work. i am a gm mechanic and if you could not use the radio in your car we would be shot. people get very upset if a car breaks down and cannot be fixed with in a day or so but it took me 7 months to get a good radio for the trailer. is this acceptable?? i feel for you .

I have a 2006, and the only problem I had is that there is no tone control, but mine did not come with a TV, DVD player or surround sound system. After reading all the problems that were posted and my warranty was up, I did away with it and as some of you know I made a mod to the entertainment center. As soon as I come with a plan on how to pull the wires I am going to install a Bose system.

In our 2009 All American there is a Magna??? something or other, and we get a local AM station on all bands at a relatively high volume. When we crank the volume and drown it out the unit it sounds generally good but you can't talk to each other.

The factory warranty manager has approved its replacement. No I just have to get Camping World (not the dealer we purchased from) to order and install the new unit.

I just had my concertcrap replaced yesterday at my dealer, my surround sound channel "A" main cabin area speakers died, and only the sub worked. It also made a noise like a single piano key strike of a low base note about every20 seconds. VERY irritating. The new concertcrap ZX 600 surround works fine, but the sub won't work when playing a DVD!!! It works everywhere else, however. AND the low piano note sound is still there. I'm wondering if it's the WFCO converter making the sound. I am going to check it out under battery power. What a pile of ----! Randy
