Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I stalled lil ovet a wrek ago, and Everything going so far so good

Pros: Dual channel capability for two channel headsets, hidden dvd player behind the screen, also can watch what I play from the front visor screen or head unit.

Cons: only thing I ain't content about is the directional for the infred beemer for using the wireless headphone, they are 2 channels, but yet if the person in the opposite seat or middle seat want to hear what is on their player, u can only hear it if u r directly in front of it, that's unsatisfactory, need to make it where anyone in the car can hear it if the wireles's dual channel headsets are selected to channel 1 or 2 for that player.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good value for the price. Mounting sleeves need to be changed as the headrests are a little loose in a 2013 camry; mounting sleeves are of a plastic that is too brittle so I expect problems down the road. FM modulator and the wireless headphones produce a sound that is quite clear.

Pros: nice picture. price. fairly easy install

Cons: lack of detailed instructions. The mounting sleeves for the headrests need to be totally revamped.

headrest DVD

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought two for my 2005 Explorer. We installed them ourselves. Pretty easy to do, although time consuming... running the wires through the seats, under the center console, and "plug" under the steering column. But once installed, they work great. No problems with glare. Easy for the kids to use.

Pros: Easy to use, good picture

Cons: Time consuming to install.

Audiovox headrest DVD player

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Took awhile to install as I working in my wife's 2012 Durango, never taken interior panels off before. That ended up being easy as did most steps. The units wire together enabling either to be a master and/or slave display using RCA cables not supplied. All wiring was connected and hidden in the extra space in the center console. The headrest poles adjust for your vehicle, and there is a set of bushings included to compensate for the difference in pole diameter. I used a second set of bushings at the bottom of the pole socket for more stability. They work great in all modes and kept the kids quiet on a long trip.

Pros: Easy install for someone with a little auto skills.

Cons: Very small one. If you need bushings to stabilize the HR poles in the factory seat socket, you'll need 4. One each for top and bottom. You get a box of 10 different sizes in the box, I used the next smaller size and it worked fine.

Great little DVD players

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought 2 of these DVD players and connected them up in primary/secondary mode which means that a DVD movie playing in one of the headrests can be viewed by the other head rest. For example, I only have one copy of Frozen DVD but but my girls can watch it at the same time.

I was a bit worried about the FM modulator but the audio comes through quite nicely with little/no crackling or interference. The other thing that I noticed is that, at times, if we go over a strong bump in the road, the DVD will stop playing and the kids have to restart it. No big deal and happens very rarely but something to be aware of.

I havent yet tried plugging in an iPad (via the external input availalbe on the headrest) so not sure whether this will work as advertised.

I took off one star for the following reasons: 1. Poor/no instructions in the manual on how to install in primary/secondary configuration 2. The headrest dont quite fit correctly in the seats of my Honda Odyssey 2014. I have used the provided plastic adapters but I noticed that only one of the poles is tight.. Might have to contact Crutchfield/AudioVoxx and see what they suggest

Pros: * seems to work quite well * good audio

Cons: * Headrest doesnt yet sit in seat correctly * rough bumps in the road CAN (but dont always) make the DVD player freeze. Needs to be restarted

The headrest posts are approximately 5.5" in length, with adjustable spacing to accommodate your vehicle's headrest post opening (between approximately 5.125" and 7.3125"). The diameter of steel tubes are 10mm but can be adjusted between 12-17mm using the included post adapters. Once installed, the headrests can be tilted about 15° for the best viewing angle.
