Alpine includes two wireless headphones so that the kids in the back can enjoy their movie . . . quietly.

Backseat boredom be-gone

With Alpine's PKG-RSE3DVD rear seat entertainment system, your DVD collection won't gather dust at home anymore. This overhead monitor/DVD player combo gives the kids in the backseat some exciting options to stave off backseat boredom on long trips. In addition to playing DVDs, this system accepts video input from an iPod®, iPhone®, iPad® or video game console, making this one of the most dynamic systems on the road. Its crisp 10.2" flip-down WSVGA monitor delivers stunning picture clarity and high brightness for better daylight viewing.

Audio avenues

Create the feeling of surround sound by tuning audio from the PKG-RSE3DVD through your car speakers with the built-in FM modulator, or connect it to your stereo's auxiliary input. If the sound of Decepticon laser blasts or clanging swords is too distracting to the driver, back-seaters can listen privately via two included, wireless headphones. You can give the kids full independence with Alpine's full-function wireless remote, or if you'd like a little more parental control, keep the remote handy to get their attention if you need to.

AV Input/Outputs: The PKG-RSE3DVD overhead monitor is equipped with two audio/video inputs for connecting external audio/video sources to the PKG-RSE3DVD. Each audio/video input consists of a composite video jack and stereo RCA jacks. The Alpine overhead monitor also features a composite video output with stereo RCA output for connecting this unit to your vehicle's in-dash multimedia head unit.

Built-In FM Transmitter: The Alpine PKG-RSE3DVD overhead monitor features a built-in FM transmitter used to supply audio from the unit over RF frequency to your factory head unit which is not equipped with an auxiliary or AV input. The built-in FM modulator's frequency is selectable between 88.1 MHz and 92.1 MHz, in 0.2 MHz steps.

IR Headphones: The PKG-RSE3DVD includes a built-in infrared transmitter for use with the supplied headphones (SHS-N106). The transmitter and headphones have two channels (Channel A = 2.3/2.8MHz or Channel B = 3.2/3.8MHz), to avoid any interference. The headphone volume is adjusted using the integrated controls on each headset. The pair of headphones each operate off of two "AAA" batteries. Additional wireless headphones (500SHSN106, sold separately) are available.

LED Dome Lights: The roof mount monitor contains white LED dome lights that can be manually turned on or off with a switch on front of the unit. The unit's LED dome lights can also be wired to your factory dome lights so they turn on and off whenever your interior factory lighting turns on or off with the opening of your vehicle's doors.

This unit will play regular DVD discs, but will not play Blu-Ray discs. [ Jeff  Nov 24, 2014 ]  Staff
It is powered by 12 Volts DC. There is also a 12 Volt DC remote wire that turns the unit on and off when the car is on or off. [ James Arthur  Nov 10, 2014 ]
Power would need to be connected the same way a car stereo is connected; one constant power and one ignition power. you can use the leads from the overhead light since this unit has lights built in it can even replace your overhead light depending on your vehicle. [ Paul  Nov 09, 2014 ]

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: That unit is designed to be an overhead piece, but if you want to install it elsewhere I don't see why it wouldn't work. I hope that helps. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Apr 22, 2014 ]  Staff
