Overview

Our take on the Jensen Heavy Duty JHD1120B

The Jensen Heavy Duty JHD1120B receiver will hold up in the tough conditions you encounter at job sites and on the road. It'll handle vibrations, temperature fluctuations, and humidity with ease, and the front panel's protective covering keeps out the dust and grime you encounter when taking on dirty jobs. And if you're a trucker who takes your stereo out of the rig when you're off the job, the receiver's built-in memory will keep all your presets and other settings for 30 days.

The receiver's AM and FM tuner lets you check out your favorite radio stations, while the Weather Band tuner keeps you up to date on changing weather conditions in your area. If you're on the road a lot, the Radio Broadcast Data Service (RBDS) alerts you to traffic conditions in select areas. If you've got a portable player, you can plug it into the minijack input right on the front panel.

The backlit LCD display is easy to read in all lighting conditions, and you can add an optional remote control if you'd like.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

Purchased for a CAT excavator where it is installed vertically (face up) in the factory slot in the door-side electrical panel. In that location it is subject to dust and moisture. I needed rugged, rain resistant unit that did not have a CD slot which would admit dirt.

    Heavy Duty Series

    Heavy Duty: The Jensen Heavy Duty JHD1120 is an AM/FM/RBDS/WB in-dash receiver. Jensen Heavy Duty series head units are specifically designed, built, and tested to withstand even the harshest road and work conditions, such as humidity, electrostatic discharge, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations. Its entire front panel is an impervious membrane protected to prevent dirt, grime from accessing control panel through pushbutton gaps. The head unit's conformal coated PCB board and heavy-duty design specification provides maximum durability under all conditions. The following tests are performed on Jensen's Heavy Duty in-dash receivers.

    • Extreme Temperature & Humidity Test: Tested to ensure that the unit will fully function in -22° F to 158° F temperatures, as well as up to 95% relative humidity.
    • Vibration Test: Tested to withstand 4G's at 20-500Hz for 9 hours to ensure the unit can withstand the extreme environments most commonly met in heavy duty applications.
    • RF Performance Test: The RF Chamber test ensures that the stereo keeps clean signals in and the bad signal out, so you are always left with a steady signal without outside interference.
    • Electrostatic Discharge Test: The Electrostatic Discharge Test exposes the radio to up to 25 kilovolts to make sure it can withstand the most severe static build-up while you are out on the job.
    • Severe Electrical Environment Test: The Jensen Heavy Duty radio is designed to survive an alternator battery disconnection, because it is equipped with the necessary component to prevent "Load Dump" destruction.
