    DVD surround sound player is dead

    Hello

    We need to replace the unit that came with the Montana. Anyone have any recommendations?

    We have the same issue. I looked for a while and never found something I liked. I'm sure there are units out there that would be acceptable.

      Phil, can you fill out your signature so we can see the year and model of your rv? This can help us help you as to what type of entertainment system you have.

        I did twice and it didn't take. Just did it the third time it didn't take. Just just did it again and it worked this time.

          Sorry for your troubles, we have had growing pains. Tech support has been working the kinks out. They seem to have some issues resolved.

            Hi

            For those of you that have the same problem I have been looking at the specs for the Hafler and found that it uses 4 6ohm and 4 4ohm speakers and all of the replacement stuff I have looked at use 3ohm speakers.

            This would require replacing the speakers not something I wish to do.

            In the past when working with amateur radio equipment I remember being able to use a matching transformer to match the impedance.

            I will keep you all posted on my progress.

              There are a lot of different Home Theater systems on the market. This time of the year is probably the best to get it replaced, sales and all! I suppose that if I had to replace the entire system, i would not want to be re-wiring! I think the approach I would take is to cut the speaker wires right at the speaker, strip and tin the wires, install the new speakers and solder in (if necessary) the new ones. There are inexpensive speaker mounts available that allow you to position each speaker 180 degrees in all directions.

              I am partial to Samsung and Sony. Both products, TV's, electronics in general seem to hold up well. Many Home Theaters have blueray, bluetooth, am/fm, satellite, aux and USB inputs allowing you to do most anything you'd like. Coupled with a "Smart" TV and an internet connection, you are pretty well set up.


              I would be more than happy to help on pointers for tinning and soldering of wires portion of the job if you need help. I teach it here at work and can probably have you soldering like a pro in no time (unless you already are!)!

                Hi

                Thanks for the information. We agree on the equipment that we consider best for the job.

                However the way these speakers are mounted in my 2009 5th wheel would require a great deal of work to change the speakers.

                I had experience with soldering I am one of the few Amateur Radio operators that still bread board’s equipment LOL

                I would prefer using a matching transformer instead and will probably go that way.

                    Our Sony quit working last camping season and I have yet to find just the radio/DVD player that I can purchase. Stores only want to sell complete sets including speakers, which I don't need. It is a shame when electronics don't last 3 years. I still have one in my home system that is almost 30 years old and still works great. Wish there was room in my Monte to put it.

                      Unfortunately they no longer make units with radios in them, that was short lived. Your kind of force to buy the kits or add an old stereo and Blu-Ray player.
