Touch Audio replacement

After my touch audio stopped working before are first camping trip the dealer informed me that that model was discontinued. They sent me a Jensen AWM965 (8 channel). It's a little wider so I had to cut it in. Works great except for I no longer have a wired remote for out side entertainment system. But at least I have a name brand unit!

If you installed yours yourself did they send you one under warranty or did you have to purchase it? We've only had one trip with our trailer and the touch audio is bad.

Did the Jensen fit the factory opening height wise or did you have to modify (other than trimming the plywood sides)?
I just filed a claim so they are sending a new unit and my dealer said it seems to be a crap shoot right now on what brand they will send....

I only had to trim about 1/4" off each side. The Jensen has 8 channels 16 watts each i think, and I only needed 4. So I wired 2 channels per speaker. Sounds good for a low watt receiver.

I believe the Jensen has a rear connection for an IR repeater or remote.
It might say IRin or something. An IR repeater an electric eye on a cord that you
could plug into the Jensen and then place it in a window where you could actually use your remote outside.

Sort of a hassle but it could be done.
FYI, we have a cable provider that rents us "mini boxes" that are digital
receivers so we can watch basic cable on older analog tuner TVs.
Each one came with an IR repeater so the mini box can be placed out
of sight and still use a remote to change channels.
I'm guessing one of these would work with a Jensen but it's just a guess!

Donno where to tell you to get one but Radio shack maybe? Or from Jensen.

Thanks kydan! I'll look into that. I didn't notice the input but if it's there I'll be on it.

I represent ASA Electronics, the producer of the JENSEN brand of televisions, stereos, and speakers, the Voyager brand of observation monitors and cameras and Advent appliances. At ASA, we strive to provide excellent customer service and product satisfaction and would like to offer some assistance in this matter.

You should use caution when installing the stereo so that only one speaker is connected to each channel output. It is not recommended to wire two channels per speaker, also known as “bridging”, as this can lead to damage or premature failure of the amplifier outputs. If more overall volume is desired, it is recommended to use either an external power amplifier or additional speakers. Unused speaker outputs should have the ends of the wires insulated to prevent shorting.

Also, the AWM965 does not have an external IR sensor input. This is a feature that is found on some of our other wall mount stereo models.

Please let me know if I can assist further.
