More details on the Jensen JWM9A

Product Research


RV Receiver: The Jensen JWM9A is a wall-mount DVD receiver that has been specifically designed and built for recreational vehicle use. The JWM9A has past numerous tests to make sure it stands up to recreation vehicle usage.

  • Temperature/Vibration Chamber: Long-Duration product exposure to constant random frequency operational vibration and non-operational vibration to simulate rugged road conditions. Simultaneous temperature cycle and vibration exposure are also conducted for additional data that is relevant to detecting potential material/component weaknesses and calculating product life-expectancy.
  • Electrostatic Discharge: The last thing you need is for your radio to quit due to accidental static shock. That's why Jensen goes through the extensive Electrostatic Discharge Test on all exposed control areas as well as I/O connections so they can withstand the most severe static build up.
  • Load Dump: Severe electrical environments are relatively common mobile applications. Jensen understand these environments and what it takes to protect electronics that will be exposed to them. That's why Jensen includes specific and significant front-end circuit protection and filtering that is proven to withstand the toughest electrical environments. The Load Dump Tests puts destructive pulses (spikes) to simulate the sudden disconnection of the battery from the alternator while the alternator is generating current to load the battery. Such Load Dump pulses are high energy pulses with a high potential of destruction ensuring that our electronics are protected.
  • Reverse Polarity: The Reverse Polarity test uses a car battery to test durability of the product when the (+) and (-) cables are accidentally reversed.
  • Power Line Noise Rejection: Test throws noise onto the signal and simulates product reaction to alternator whine.
  • Simulated Crank Start Voltage: Used to test electronics depreciation and altercations when vehicle is turned on.
  • High/Low Operating Voltage Test: Used to test electronics depreciation and altercations when vehicle is turned on. Both tests used to ensure electronics consistency when vehicle battery goes below or above the normal 12V.  Product must remain operational throughout the test.
  • Shorted I/O: Ensures that product will function when inputs and outputs are connected improperly to the product.
  • High/Low Operating Temperature: Long-Duration product exposure to operational temperature extremes and rapid temperature cycles that are experienced in outdoor mobile applications. In addition Jensen tests for High humidity introduced at high-temp to test effectiveness of circuit corrosion protection (conformal coating).
  • Pushbutton/Hinge/Mechanism Durability Cycle: Life cycle robotic testing of all buttons and hinge mechanism for durability.
  • RF Performance Testing: The RF Performance test ensures that the Jensen product keeps clean signals in and the bad signals out, so that users are always left with a steady signal without outside interference. Jensen not only test for high level RF performance during product design, but also takes a random sampling from each production lot and test it to ensure performance consistency. A battery of over 80 performance tests are conducted to analyze and validate RF and audio performance.

DVD Player: The Jensen JWM9A features a built-in disc player that supports playback of CD Audio, CD-R/RW, DVD video discs. It will also playback MP3 music files recorded onto a CD-R/RW disc. The player can recognize up to 999 music files and 512 folders. In addition It provides electronic skip protection (ESP) for disc playback - 5 seconds for DVD, 15 seconds for CD, and 40 seconds for MP3.

Front-Panel USB Port: The JWM9A features a front-panel USB (type-A) port for connection of a USB mass storage class device like a USB thumbdrive or flashdrive. You are able to play back MP3 music files stored on a USB MSC device. The unit can recognize up to 999 music files and 512 folders.

Note: The unit's USB port is not compatible with Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android smartphones/tablets.

Playback & Search Functions: The unit provides a variety of playback and search functions for disc & USB playback like Play/Pause, Previous Next/Track, Fast Forward/Rewind (x4/x8/x20), Repeat (all/track), Random (all/folder), and Intro Scan (10 sec). You can also use the included remote's keypad to go directly to a track on a disc or USB device.

Bluetooth Music Streaming: The Jensen JWM9A offers built-in Bluetooth with support for wireless music streaming and control of your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows Phone, Blackberry, and more. You'll be able to stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth mobile device to the Jensen receiver, as well as control basic playback functions (like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) from the receiver. Advanced music navigation and song/artist information will still be done from your Bluetooth mobile device.

Note: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone communication.

iPod/iPhone Ready: This unit is equipped with an iPod/iPhone ready function that will allow you to control select iPod/iPhones using the head unit's front-panel buttons. The proprietary Jensen iPod Connecting Cable (522DABIPDL or 522DABIPD1, sold separately) is required to connect your 30-pin iPod/iPhone to the head unit's rear-panel proprietary iPod port; the Apple Lightning to 30-pin adapter (sold separately) is required for newer iPod/iPhone models with a Lightning connector . The iPod/iPhone power turns on automatically when an iPod is connected, as long a the vehicle ignition is turned on. The iPod/iPhone will continuously charge while connected when the vehicle ignition is turned on. The JWM9A supports the following playback control for your iPod/iPhone: Play/Pause, Repeat/Random, Skip/Previous, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Category Search (Playlist/Artist/Album/Genre/Song).

How do I set the clock? Does this answer mean, nobody knows, or it can't be done?

[ Krissy  Mar 17, 2018 ]  Staff
This item claims to be an all-in-one entertainment system for RV's yet it does not have a Sirus Radio hookup, and does not allow for either composite video playback, or the handling of digital video files such as avi, mkv, mp4 m4v or other digital files. Is there any plans to either upgrade this unit to provide such, and maybe even include a Blu-Ray player as well?

We're not aware of any plans Jensen has to upgrade the JWM9A model; however we may have another option for your RV that's better suited for you with the features you want. For more help on selecting a unit along those lines, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!
[ Larry  Sep 25, 2017 ]  Staff
does this unit have a composite audio/video output?
[ Michael  Jun 15, 2016 ]
1 answer
Not positive the question you are asking. We used an HDMI cord to plug it in the tv. We are very happy with the stereo--it is in our RV. The sound quality is great.
[ Kimberly  Jun 16, 2016 ]
I would like to add a sound bar to or wireless surround sound speakers to my living area in my fifth wheel. Can I do this with the Jensen system? If so, where do I start? Thanks!
[ Erin  Apr 18, 2016 ]
1 answer
Next to the HDMI output on the left side there is a pair of RCA 'IN/OUTs". Use the Audio OUT connection for a 'line level' signal to a separate amplified device such as a soundbar, sub-amp, recording device etc.
[ Matt  Apr 18, 2016 ]
Can you play video files via front usb port?
[ Mike  Nov 09, 2015 ]
1 answer
Sorry, no. The USB port supports MP3, WMA & JPEG files only. Hope that helps!
[ Ryan  Nov 11, 2015 ]  Staff
what are the dimensions needed to flush mount this unit?
[ GREG  Oct 31, 2015 ]

We don't have any mounting dimensions listed but the unit itself measures 17"W x 3-3/4"H x 6-3/8"D
