We get to see some pretty cool gear come through the door at Crutchfield, but the Farenheit TID-831NRB really turned some heads. Most in-dash DVD receivers with retractable screens have a 7-inch screen, but Farenheit has broken through with a model that packs an 8.3-inch screen inside the chassis of the receiver.

Some clever engineering and space management is the key. Rather than try to explain it, here's a short video I took so you could see how Farenheit got that big screen into that little slot for yourself. And yes, the Farenheit TID-831NRB screen deployment looks that cool in real life.
