Got two groups of kids with wildly different ideas of what's entertaining? This pair of headrest entertainment centers from Accele Electronics will keep everyone in the family happy and occupied during road trips. Each of these universal headrests features a 9" video monitor, along with a built-in DVD player that also accepts SD cards, USB devices, and other audio/video sources. And if that's not enough, each headrest also comes with its own pair of game controllers (4 controllers in all) so your backseat passengers can play different video games.

Universal headrest posts adjust to fit almost any vehicle, and each headrest comes with black, tan, and gray changeable covers to match your interior. Wired and wireless headphone connections let you restrict the sound to the back, while built-in FM wireless transmitters send the soundtrack to your car radio if you want.

Important Note: You should not install this universal-fit headrest screen package in a vehicle with active or SRS headrests, as you will lose important safety features. Please consult your vehicle's owner's manual.

Headrest DVD

Written By robert, southwest Louisiana on Monday, February 06, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased to watch 2 different shows at once or one together. If I would have known how poor the sound quality was I would have bought cheaper unit that plays one movie on two screen and ran output to amp.

Pros: picture quality, easy install saved 200 by installing myself,usb slots

Cons: earjack defective, very low sound on factory setup and headphones.

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new Accele Headrest Video Package

Your passengers can listen to the movie with these wireless headphones while you drive in peace.
If you have no car audio installation experience, we recommend professional installation.
You'll want A/V cables to hook up another video source or monitor.
Keep the kids, lose the fingerprints. Use a screen cleaning kit to safely clean the monitor. It also works well with computers and TVs.
