Improving TV Audio - Help

I have a 2018 345RL. I am trying to figure out how to improve the TV Audio. There isn't a sound bar and I can't get it to play through the stereo. There doesn't seem to be enough room to mount a sound bar above or below the TV. The TV and stereo are bot Furrion. Am I missing something simple? Has anyone done n upgrade?

If your TV has audio output jacks and your sound system has audio input (or maybe aux input) jacks, you should be able to connect the two using a standard audio cable and get the TV sound thru the sound system. You must select the audio or aux input when you turn on the sound system. At least that is how mine works.

My rig is older. And I am not familiar with the Furrion equipment. But my original boat anchor TV and no-name sound system worked that way. Replaced with a Samsung TV and Panasonic sound system and that works the same. So I would guess you have a good shot at yours working.

I know nothing about a Furion. But in my 2012, the TV (audio out) was connected to the stereo (audio in) with a fiber optic cable. You did have to set the input on the stereo to "D In" (digital input) to get it to work. Perhaps they still configure them this way or it is a way for you to go.

Our Furrion TV and Stereo is connected via the AVI Input on the Stereo.
Select AVI on Stereo and then adjust both sound settings on TV and Stereo.

If that does not work you should check if you have a Audio Cable from the TV to the Stereo.

You can upgrade with Furrion Speakers if you want to stay with this vendor: https://www.furrion.com/store/audiovisual/audio/

Can you give model number of A/V equipment. I have a Furrion TV and Stereo. The Stereo is the DV3300. With the HDMI from the 3300 to the HDMI 2 port on the TV will allow audio to come through to the stereo using the ARC function. I believe the DV3100 will do the same. I was toying with the notion of buying a soundbar but don't think I have the need for it now. If I fulltimed I might think of a 5.1 system.

I got it figured out. The audio cable was plugged into audio in on tv and stereo. Switched TV to audio out and it works. You know the saying....Two in's don't make an out.....LOL
Thanks for the help.

Our 3701LK has the IRV stereo system and this is what I did
I made it work. Had to remove front glass plate and then unscrew and slide out stereo unit. On the back is the description for the video out and audio in(pic). I went ahead and attached both sets of cables(pic) just in case but it only requires the RCA Stereo cable. Had to drill a hole for the cable to reach the stereo. The audio out is on the left side of my tv(pic)- simply connect the cable and put everything back together. In the tv menu make sure your speakers are set to Auto. Set the stereo to TV Audio and the tv remote controls the volume. Besides the better sound in the living room this allows me to play the tv sound on the exterior speakers while watching the smaller exterior tv.

Iíd still like to access the setup of the stereo to adjust the equalizer, etc. so will continue to work on that.o

Hi All- canít get the main tv to play thru the iRV32 component in our 3701LK. In the manual it shows a system setup mode but I canít get to it. The remote works except for the setup key. Ran the reset function but no difference. Anyone know how to maneuver this? Thanx!

Tv

Mine wasnít connected up. You should be able to tell by looking at the back of the tv on the audio output jack.

I bought an “open box” Samsung sound bar from Best Buy and velcroed it to the top of the televator. What a huge difference it is from the poor unit that came in the unit. By mounting there I can also use blue tooth or connect it to another source for just music. Bought the blue tooth surround sound speakers that go with it and used the wires and mount brackets to replace the old surround speakers. The sub woofer and blue tooth box sit behind the theater seats.
