Re: TV Option

Alf, I have entertained thoughts of just going with the in-dash type of stereo with separate speakers. They will take up some space in cabinets, but also leave it clearer under the cabinets. Do you have a second set of speakers as well?

Re: TV Option

That looks good Alf! I'd asked Tammy about that type of stereo, and she said they discontinued it because it took up too much space in the cabinets. That's why they went to the undercounter style. One advantage of the automotive style however - it's powered by DC, so you can have your sweet music, even if you don't have shore power : - )

Re: TV Option

Is the undermount stereo the Escape has gone with not 12V? If not, it would be of next to no use to me.

I had assumed that it was. The Jensen site does not show much for specs on the unit.

Re: TV Option

Jim, I'd looked on the Jensen site as well, and since it didn't say, I assumed, with all the power and options (particularily the DVD player), that it was 110 AC. But, I may be wrong, and would hate to get that Kaluha in your tummy all churned up for no reason : - )

Re: TV Option

No Kahula in the tummy tonight.

I found lots of Jensen owner manuals online, but not one for this unit. The more I have thought about it, the more I would consider it a no go then.

Edit: I just fired off and email to Jensen, hope to hear something tomorrow.

Re: TV Option

I hope their online email form works, because both the customer and tech service emails I sent from Outlook got kicked back as undeliverable.

Re: TV Option

If all else fails, ask the source - Tammy! She'll find out!

Re: TV Option

Looks like a DV2007 AM/FM/CD/DVD Player is enclosed within the UTCDV2007IP. Here's some specs.

Features
Stereo, CD and DVD Player All-In-One
- 12 Volt DIN chassis
- Plays CDs, MP3 CDs, and DVDs
- Full iPodr controls from front panel with option al interface cable (#JIPDCBL)
- Composite video output/video input
- 4 speaker output
- 4 x 40W output power
- 4 channel Aux. output
- 1/8" Aux. A/V input for gaming use
- Selectable backlight
- Removable faceplate
- Infrared wireless remote control
- Full search capabilities through MP3 folders for video output
- Last-position CD/DVD memory
- Subwoofer output
- Power antenna output
- Station memory presets
- Preset scan and auto-store

At this point I'm planning to buy the Jensen JE1909RTL 19 in. Flat Panel LCD RV TV. 12V operation. It has the HDTV (1080p) tuner built in. I can also connect the laptop. Slick little TV.

Re: TV Option

Good sleuthing Edgar, that makes perfect sense, and of course you are right on the money. I could not find much doing a search on the UTCDV2007IP, and the one you showed kept coming up when I tried searching UTCDV2007. I never put it together/ I hadn't looked close at the dash mount types either.

Does anyone know what is meant by 4 channel Aux. output? Would this be a way of hooking up another pair of speakers? If not, I guess one could then just spice a 2 or 4-pole 2-way switch into one of the two sets of speakers to run to a set of speakers to be used outside.
