Changing TV speaker

I read on here some where about someone who was able to change the speakers on the Jensen TV to the installed ceilings speakers. I have tried to find the thread but have so far had no luck. I would like very much to be able to do this as the TV speakers are hard to hear.

I connected the audio output from the TV to an available audio input on the stereo system. Simple as can be. Not sure why RV manufacturers don't do this already other than the cost of the $5 cable.

Many TVs have the Audio Out jack, but the output is of "fixed" (constant voltage), hence when using a stereo (or surround-sound) system, the sound volume is controlled via that system.

An alternative would be to have a TV with a "Headphone Out" jack, and use this connection into your stereo system. This way you can control your listening volume using the TV's original remote.

I'm getting ready to do a major TV change in the front of our coach. So, your statement about using the head phone jack so you can use the TV remote for controlling the sound has me thinking. I'm thinking of setting up a receiver/amp. Would using just a head phone jack from the TV to the receiver work as good as say, an HDMI cable?

This is how I did my bedroom TV sound setup. The TV use to be a tube type, and I'm changing over to a flat screen. I bought a Lepai multi-function amplifier and external speakers along with a woofer.



The Panasonic speakers were part of a set of 4 surround sound speakers and one woofer that I found at a thrift shop for $8. The Lepai 15W per channel was $20 or so and has all the features I was looking for...FM radio, plays MP3 music from a SD memory, 12 volt power requirement (I could have used the cigar lighter jack inside the TV cabinet...but I found a 12 volt Power supply at a thrift store and used that instead), and audio inputs.

I connect the TVs headphone jack to the back of the Lepai amp, the volume on the amp is set around midpoint and holds that setting when you turn off the amp, and I control volume with the TV remote.

Afa whether it's as good or better than HDMI, I cannot tell. Seems the same to me.

Some TV's have an option to make the audio output fixed or variable. It is not a popular option but some do have it. You need to make the change in the setting option on the TV. This way you can still use the volume buttons on the TV remote vs the other audio device. Of course another option is to get a universal remote that does it all.
