Jenson- HD1BT

Just was wondering how this stereo is working out? Was considering buying one because of the 200 watts.

200 watts max with no RMS given
50 watts a channel is pretty standard...and pretty useless without knowing the RMS.

Saw one at Laconia...nice features but the audio quality was lacking.

And $500 for a Jensen...no thanks.

I'm curious as well. You can get them for less than $500, though. motoparthub.com has them listed for $353.40. I *might* have to get one for that price. I'd need speakers, too, because it's a 4 ohm head unit...

Ok I might be telling my age...but back in the day Jensen speakers were the shit. Why now are people trashing the head unit. I know speakers and a radio are a big difference and I have never owned one of their radios though. This unit looks well though out and fits all the needs of an after market radio. I have not heard one, just seems it would be a good unit. I must admit I have not kept up with electronics in a while until I started looking around for a better head unit, so I have nothing to base my judgement on .

Not to sure if Jensen speakers were ever "the shit"...but ok.
30 years in the 12v industry and I an say this for sure...
Jensen had it's day in the Sears / K-Mart automotive audio displays.
They have always been and continue to be a low cost / lower quality company.
Nothing that I've heard from this unit causes me to think any differently.

Even at the above mentioned discount price...there are much better choices.

I am just saying in the late 70's and early 80's on a part time earning budget, Jensen coaxil and triaxil speakers were awsome. Then I never saw the first pair in Kmart or Sears. anyway I get your point.

Back in the Day it used to be 'Jensen 6x9 Coaxials' or 'Pioneer Mind Blowers' the day being 1977-78 for me at least. 40 watt Power Booster and I had a Craig Radio in my 1973 Camaro.
I just cant remember 'Now' how much them 6x9 was,....did seem like Pioneer was still the Higher End Audio. For some reason tho, everybody told me they could hear me cumn for 3 blocks! hehehe- 'Impressive'!
I think the dude is talkn alil bit more farther back than the past 30 years! imho

Pioneer Super Tuner here, Kenwood equalizer/ power booster, and Jensen Coaxil speakers in the back.

Bad Audio Quality? LOL!

I know the thread is old but hopefully this will help anyone who search.

I have this stereo on my bike and it easily outperforms the stock Harmon stereo. Great accuracy even on Bluetooth. Amazing amount of options and actual power distribution is approx. 22-25w x4 RMS which is not only standard for an on board amp but in line with ALL major brands. (Alpine,Pioneer, Kenwood etc)

I bought this stereo with huge expectations for the price point and it has not disappointed. Those just seeing the "Jensen" name are the people other brands are waiting for. This is not the Jensen audio you see at Sears, Walmart, Kmart...The build house is completely separate for Jensen HD audio. (Jensen Heavy Duty not Harley Davidson) The internal boards are South Korean which is the best quality. (Same as Harmon/Kardon) Up until recently these stereos were only seen in 500K motorhomes and high end outdoor sports items. Similar to Bose car audio they only sold commercially.

Get the stereo, then when you get caught in the rain or wash your bike you can feel sorry for all the folks that have rust on their stereo boards after 6 months. Get the USB charge port for the glove box too...GREAT feature for $20. You can charge anything with a usb without having to put it in your bags.

Oh and don't buy Jensen speakers anymore...The HD will last forever but much better options out there. Speakers don't amplify power or signal so they have a lot less risk in an open air environment due to the materials. I use Hertz comps. Just be mindful about WHERE you buy them, most counterfeited speaker out there.
