Nice job. Nice coach. How did you secure the LCD inside the cabinet?

Hi Jim, I thought you'd never ask..... First the metal "cage" was removed entirely. Then it's all woodwork, glue and screws. The TV is "sandwiched" between wood cleats. Really worked out well, I think. The surround sound center speaker was remounted in a wood panel in the ceiling in front of the TV. Maybe you can see it in the pictures. The hardest part is getting the surround sound volume controlled remotely. We did this by installing a different stereo dash head unit and using it to control the surround sound volume. the stereo has a remote control.

Looks great! Are you the woodworker, or did you hire that part done? What is the dark object on the right side? ...and is it done so you can you readily access the area behind the TV?

I've thought about that area as a place to store the DW's many tapes & CD, but might be too warm up there...

Very nice work. I replaced my TV a few months ago, but went a bit larger. 32" LCD HDTV.

The work was done by Davis Cabinets in Junction City, OR.

Thanks for all the kudos.
I did pay a wood worker to do the cabinet but in the end I wish I had just done it myself. It was easier than I had expected.
The elongated hole on the right side of the TV is for access tothe TV controls which are on the side of the TV itself.

Very nice install . I replaced the OEM 26" tube set with another tube set couple of years ago....wish I had taken the time to re-work the opening and do LCD. I did replace the rear 19" cheapo with a 20" LCD and love the result.

Bob Hatch, I looked at your website and am very impressed. Your TV install looks great too.

As others are, I am impressed by the results. My question is who did all of the work regarding the electronics? Who decided on what TV and how it would be hooked up? The new systems are somewhat more difficult than just hooking up a coax cable.

Thanks. AS to the electronics....I paid for my installation but it just wasn't that hard. An auto stereo shop tech can do it if you're not comfortable. As to the TV......other than space available for a TV you need to consider the on-the-TV controls and how to access them. The other issue is how to control volume assuming you use Surround Sound that is now controlled via your current TV. A typical way to control volume with a new TV is to send the audio tothe dash stereo for volume control. At least that's what's done on our rig. WE have a dash stereo with remote control so volume control remote can be done.

Another solution to the volume control situation when installing a LCD without the menu item to control the volume on the audio outputs is to buy a manual controller from www.davidnavone.com/. Look through his products and you will find a stereo volume controller. I have used this on the install I did on the switch out of the TV up front. If you want to see my install, click on the photos selection at the right top of this page and then do a search using my id of dknig288. It shows the front TV replacement and the use of the volume control from David Navone. The unit is $21.50 plus shipping. I have used on both the front and back TVs as I have also replaced the back TV with a 26" LCD. Look under the topic of Line Drivers and then look at the N-22V which is a stereo remote volume control. With the RCA plug installs built in, it allows you to put the controller in a position which is easy for you to use.

When I installed our LCD, I ran the earphone output of the new TV to the surround sound inputs in the back of the TV cabinet. I control the volume though my TV remote control. I used a simple mini din to RCA stereo adapter cable from Radio Shack.

This setup replicates the original surround features that came with the coach.
