We had an Emerson 19" LCD TV w/built-in DVD player in our RV (a hybrid trailer). We have trouble hearing the sound when the A/C is on or if it is raining. We can turn the volume up to its max, but still need to have the subtitles on (a pain!), plus then you can hear the sound OUTSIDE the trailer because it's up so loud. We don't want to be annoying other campers at night, and don't want to have to be reading subtitles all the time.
We'd like to hook up an inexpensive set of speakers to place next to the sofa and next to the dinette. Any suggestions?

You can hear the sound means your TV and the DVD player are working well. May be the video connecting cord ( yellow connector) between the TV and DVD player has gone bad. Please try replacing it. For testing, you can interchange it with any of the two sound connecting cords which have white and red connectors. I hope it helps.
Hello; There are many laws and rules controlling what you can watch on all DVD players, built into a TV or separate player. If you go buy an MGM or other dvd of some movie at Walmart , Best Buy ETC it should play in your DVD player, But if You or somebody " Burned a DVD" , It Likely won't play. If The DVD is an original store copy and still won't play, the DVD chassis must be replaced. BIG BUCKS. Just buy a Cheap DVD player and plug into the jacks on the back of the TV and save a TON of money. John
Try connecting earphones or headphones to the 3.5mm Headphone socket on the TV and check this works correctly, i.e hear TV when watching TV, hear DVD when watching a DVD etc.
If all is OK, purchase a 3.5mm Jack to L/R Audio/Phono cable. Connect the 3.5mm jack in to the headphone socket on the TV and connect the red/white phone ends to the 5.1 surround system.
It should solve it. SCART out is not always live in all sources so is not a reliable way to connect.
If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.
In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.
Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.
You may have your audio presets on your DVD too low. check your menu to make sure those presets are correct. As for Surround Sound it is a sound technique that involves having multiple speakers to give the impression of moving sound, not just hearing from the left or the right as in stereo, but hearing the way you are exposed to in real life sound moves around you this combines the doppler effect from many directions at once, example: as a car move towards you with its horn blowing the sound gets louder as it passes you the sound gets lower however, each of your ears hears the sound diferently, thats how come you can tell if the car is to your left or to your right vs coming straight at you and as it passes you, you can tell if the car is on your left or right from your rear. Surround sound is an attempt to do this without actual movement.
I hope this helps.
