Concertone radio

Just bought a 2008 8314ss. The speakers seem to hane a hiss in them. Should I use a filter of some type? I know this system has had a lot of issues, but so far this is the only problem.

Hi There! Mine has the hiss coming from the `a` channel only. The dealer gave me two noise surpressors to install but it did no good. From what I can see from readind all the concertone msgs..they all have different sorts of problems! Maybee.. just maybee the filters might work for you! I would have then supplied two you from your dealer though. That way the case is opend up on your radio just in case!

Good luck with your stereo. Waiting for my third replacement unit. Warranty almost up on RV , might have to look for a quality replacement.

Question, are you operating any equipment while the hissing is present, the reason I am asking is that a microwave for instances can effect auto with a hiss and it can effect video with lines and alter the sound. There is one other problem that you may not know and that is when your camper was wired there is a posibility that they ran high voltage supply lines too close to low voltage wiring. All of your 120v wire is high voltage compared to speaker wire and running them together is not code, they must be seprate. With out getting too technical, the fact is that control and /or low voltage wiring must be isolated from high voltage.

Problem with radio

Got my new unit today PT39QBSS, I was a;ready messing with the "fun" stuff. Thus far I can't seem to get any reception on the radio. I got in behind the unit and the antenna is hooked up? I checked a CD and it played fine. Any suggestions that I may try?

Hmmm no reception at all? Dumb question but did you inspect the antenna to ensure it's vertical and not damaged in some way?
