I still have my SPX-9 Speakers even after 20 years !!! Now in the Man Cave and going strong So I am a Jensen Fan !!
Just built my new house and went with Speakers I know will last !
Elite 303 wall speakers beside TV and Elite 303 I Cut down to fit lower cabinet. ( Still to build the fabric inserts )
Left Upper and Lower, Right Upper and Lower and Centres Paralleled. ( yes I know about Impedance, I built my own Class A Amplifier )
Twin Subs (Different Colors ATM ) driven from Paralleled Sub-Out using 75 Ohm Quad Shield cable with F type connectors to RCA Adaptors ( Absolutely NO AC Hum or Loop feedback ) with Subs to soon be upgraded to EHT-707.
Avoid cheap RCA Cables to the Subbies and rather than spend 100 or more dollars on a high quality RCA Cable, just get some quad shield 75 Ohm Cable, Fit F type connectors both ends and go to someone like Alvin Electronics and get some F type to RCA Adaptors. ( Total cost will probably be 10 bucks ) and you cant beat the quad shield, low inductance and resistance on the shield.
The room Rocks !! The House Rocks ( especially with twin Subs ) !!
All Cabinets and Wall Cavities Vented to ensure proper speaker operation.
The only issue I have found using these speakers is, I am getting letters in my letter box from the neighbours ( 5 doors down ).
After a huge hassle to bring them to New Zealand, but with big help from customer support ,this guys are amazing , I finally have my speakers installed and running, and they are hell of a speakers. The best I ever had. All my friends are blowen out with the sound quality.
Thanks guys, you are the rock stars!!!
I am using these as my surround speakers for a 5.1 set up and since the first sound erupted from them I have been impressed. Combined with a Denon 550BT it has completed my Home Theatre. 10/10 guys.
Purchased the Elite-303 to replace my Sansui floor standing speakers and Jensen centre speaker to clear up the space when changing up the rumpus room.
Installed them a week ago, and they look clean and freed up space. I noticed a black stain in one of the grills, which I still need to reach out to Jensen about.
The "invisible" centre speaker is great with the dedicated centre channel built-in the Elite-303's. The high and mid-range performance is crisp and strong, even at high volume.
However, they lack low-down richness. The EHT-9's provided a deeper bass sound in comparison. With the Elite-303's, I strongly recommend to use a subwoofer.
Order was easy online, and speakers were delivered within 2 business days.
Thank you for your feedback. So sorry about the grille - we've sent out a new one for you.
As discussed, regarding bass extension, unfortunately we've found some older (>10 years old) amps don't handle lower impedance speakers as well as the newer models.
Your pioneer receiver's manual seems to have a 6ohm mode (which you've set) but also states 'We recommend using 8ohm speakers...' probably for this reason.
The EHT-9 are great in-ceiling speakers. Installed them as rear speakers and happy with their performance.
Could also be used as fronts and a centre with their performance, providing they are directed to the listening position. Good high and mid range performance, with reasonable low range performance.
The clearance hole is large to accommodate the 15 degree angle and driver, but look clean once in with the easy to install magnetic grills.
Order was easy online, and speakers were delivered within 2 business days of ordering.
Great customer service helping me to choose the right speakers and right receiver, quick delivery and easy to install I like most the elite 303 with the center speakers, my whole sound system with 7.2 Yamaha receiver, my son very happy with awesome sound I attached some photos with all installed speakers in my media room
loving my new speakers - that I have used to replace older wall-mounted front and centre speakers. Give a much cleaner look to my wall and sounds great.
Being an old school stereo guy I was hesitant to go away from my 250 watt Polk floor standing and center chanel speakers in lieu of the Jenson in wall speakers.
So glad I did and went with the sub as well not only do they sound great it cleans up the whole area so thanks Jenson.
Bought the eht-9s loved them and the ease of install so much went back and got the 203 in wall to go in the kitchen. Great sound easy install Aussie made what more can you ask for.
Great customer service helping me choose the speakers, quick delivery and easy install. Not to mention awesome sounding speakers.
Recently we undertook a much needed reno to our lounge room and whilst in the planning stage thought it would be nice to have a entertainment system to replace our dead 20 year old yamaha system. However the thought of cluttering the room with freestanding speakers was a put off, and whilst investigating the possibility of building my own wall and ceiling mount speakers, not knowing what was on the market, I happened to stumble across the Jensen site. Liking what I seen and making contact with Jensen I found there replies prompt and very helpful, initially due to budget restraint I was going to do it in dribs and drabs. After letting Jensen know of what we were trying to achieve they offered me a decent package on the elite-303, EHT-9, and a EHT-707 sub set up, wow 2 days later in the early days of covid I've picked them up from freight depot, interstate and all, quality all round fitment a breeze, impressed. Now the hard part was waiting a couple of months for the budget to catch up and making the decision of what AV unit to drive them all the time anxious how they will sound. Finally decided to purchase, Denon avr-1600h. Well all I can say all the waiting was worth it. Looks Brilliant, sounds amazing, and the help and deal through Jensen second to none. The only future update will be elite-203 for rear / side walls. 100% recommended.
I was presently surprised with the warmth of the sound with no distortion to mid or bass with crisp treble.
Perfectly matched the four other Jensen ceiling mounted speakers for my 7.1 stereo.
Can’t wait for the ceiling mounted sub to come out.
So a few months back when renovating our lounge, decided to put in wall and ceiling speakers in, contacted Jenson who were way helpful and after doing a sweet deal on elite 303, EHT-9, and EHT-707 sub, ordered them and received them from interstate in 2 days. Impressed, quality great, fitment easy as. After a lot of research finally settled on a denon avr x1600h.. All powered up as a 5.1 system for now. and although it's early days, wow does this system crank, looks cool. Highly recommend. 5 on all accounts.
I have just moved into a new property. I connect the Jensen home theatre and literally the next morning, I have 2 Police Officers knocking on the door regarding a noise complaint from a disgruntled neighbour. The system at the time of playing was only just a touch above what would be considered background music. After all, I do have neighbours to consider. Let me explain.
With the gain turned up and the frequency turned to zero, you get such deep bass that from a distance, it’s more or less felt than heard. The earplugs that are included with every Jensen subwoofer won’t save your neighbours. Earplugs simply cannot stop something that you can feel. The performance of these subwoofers will not only be heard but also felt in neighboring houses wether they are turned up or just being played at background volume. No distortion, just deep bass that you won’t get out of an equivalent sized and branded sub. Phenomenal performance and well priced for their unrivaled performance. Daisy-chain as many of these EHT subwoofers as you like with as many singular RCA leads that you require. Use these subwoofers with the consideration of your neighbours, particularly in a townhouse setting as it turns out that background music can upset people too! I will be buying another EHT-707 soon to put at the back of the lounge room!
These speakers were easy to install and wow, what a difference! Brilliant sound, slotted in with with my Denon receiver perfectly. Couldn't be happier.
My husband was absolutely stoked with the quality of these and how clean line they look plush in the ceiling compared to the old bricks on stilts he had behind d the couch 😫
Perfect sound all around
Could not be more happy with the subwoofer and the in wall speakers. The sound is amazing. Just like being at the movies!
I am an installer of A/V equipment and i always highly recommend the Jensen range. The 303's being my favorite as they have an awesome minimalist look. Not having to "Cut In" a center speaker really cuts down the clutter on the wall without sacrificing performance. The dialogue imaging is great when watching movies and when listening to music the stereo image is also great.
The frequency response is nice and balanced and quiet surprising for a in wall speaker. Tone switch allows to accommodate for listening preferences but also helps balance a "bright" room.
A real winner for the look is the grills, white or black they are glass and will not discolour unlike a lot of others with plastics when exposed to UV will turn white to yellow and fade the black to grey.
These 303's complemented with some 404 in ceiling and of course the Thumping but not "Boomy" 707 Sub i have found to be a winning combination.
Customers are saying things like "My music sounds different! There are instruments there that i have never really noticed before"
If you are after a minimalist look without sacrificing sound quality and after "Bang for ya Buck" these are for you!
Even better than I had hoped. It shakes the house but without any distortion. I love it. I've binge watched all the Star Trek movies and Transformer movies, along with 2012 & San Andreas. It's like sitting in a VMax cinema.
I recently purchased 2 x 404 as atmos speakers. Wow, these speakers exceeded my expectations and are crossed over at 80hz without issue.
My only gripe is you can see 5mm of black speaker from side view😔., aesthetically the grills need a rework to cover the speaker 100%.
Great speaker, no regrets and at a very good price👌
They look great and sound fantastic, could not be more pleased, thanks to the Jensen team for your support and customer service. Barrie McLean
Purchased these speakers recently , they were very easy to install. All templates and instructions were easy to follow. Once installed the sound that comes from them is awesome!!
Installed 303 in walls paired paired with the ceiling 9’s powers by Yamaha receiver. Sound is excellent and looks awesome in room. Delivered interstate within 4 days! Very easy install instructions.
