How to wire

I purchased a used jensen jht805 and I can not figure out how to hook it up. If anyone can help me or direct me to a site where I can get a manual or diagram to get it going I would be very grateful, I am looking forward to hearing the great sound I know I will get from this system... I am desperate because football season is getting ready to start!!! HELP!!!!! Kathie

    That part I understand ... like my surround sound on my dvd...easy enough.... but the jensen is not the same I am not sure if I am missing part of it or not. It has 5 speakers (2 front 2 rear one center) then the sub. The sub says jensen js800 and the hook up makes no sense to me I have tried every way to get sound and can only get base nothing from the speakers(the speakers are good I checked them on my other surround sound and all 5 work).The back of the sub has one rc (red) line in
    and where the speaker wires are suppose to hook up has 4 out lines 2pos. 2neg.
    then 4 in lines 2pos. and 2neg.
    It makes no sense and I am about to give up.... Thursday night is getting close
    (GO COLTS!!!)

    It is a powered one...You say "to connect the sub out from the jensen to my sub" What jensen? I am tring to connect my t.v. to the sub and then have the 5 speakers go around the room. But nothing I connect to the sub works the speakers don't seem to work(sub does but speakers won't on that sub) I am attaching a picture of the back of the sub... someone suggested I might be missing a reciever? Is that what you are refering to as my jensen? o.k. the picture will not post "invalid file".... jeez just not my day for computers...ugg!!! it is a js800 but the speakers say jht 805 could that be the problem? p.s. I am sorry for being such a headache! Kathie

1st off i have the same system, but who ever said you were missing the receiver they are right. the jensen jht-805 (that does come with a JS-800 sub) is not a "stand alone system you need to hook them up to a receiver to get them to work. i have them hooked up to sony 6.1 600watt system and they work great. sorry to have to give you the bad news that you have to buy a receiver to enjoy the speakers.......if anyone could email me on where to buy a replacement speaker for the front one of the jht-805 i'd be grateful (my daughter poked it with a pen) [email protected]

From the TV or Cable Box look for the audio output (red/white) use a RCA cable and hook to your Jensen system. Look for audio input on your Jensen and choose the right input selection. Example: Aux connect the RCA on the Aux input, TV connect the RCA on the TV input on your Jensen and so on....

    is your sub a powered one? If then connect the sub out from ur jensen to ur sub (red line in). Then try to connect ur 4 speaker on ur jensen take that 2+ 2- for the front speaker use 1+, 1- for each speaker. Make sure you choose the right selector for that input.

    1 more thing if there is a stereo selector please try that first to make sur you have a sound on the front speaker.

How do I open the CD player in a Jensen MSR4115G?

To open the CD player, you need to press in on the hook at the top center of the CD slot cover. The cover will then pop out a little bit and you can pull it down to clear the slot.

Jensen has the manual for the MSR4115 on their support site: . The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

I have jensen vm9412 that has a broke cable

Hello smcdon,

I'd go directly to Jensen. If the cable was defective when you purchased it, it should be replaced under warranty.

Here's the link to Jensen's web site.

Hope this helps.

Jensen GPS NVX430BT How do I activate the text to speech ?

I'm about to return my Jensen NVX430BT because apparently the maps cannot be updated! The maps installed on the unit I just received are obviously outdated and there is no support from Jensen to get them updated. Too bad, this thing has it all except good directions.
