The headrest includes through-the-post wiring to make it easy to install the wire in your car seats. The headrest posts are approximately 5.75" in length, with adjustable spacing to accommodate your vehicle's headrest post opening (between approximately 5.125" and 6.6875"). The diameter of steel tubes are 10mm but can be adjusted between to 12mm, 12.4mm, 13.8mm, 14mm, or 16mm using the included post adapters. Once installed, the headrests can be tilted about 15° for the best viewing angle.

Built-in DVD Player: The Audiovox headrest monitor features a built-in DVD player behind the flip-open LCD monitor. The unit will play back DVD-Video, DVD-R/RW, and DVD+R/RW, CD-Audio, and CD-R/RW (MP3 files) discs. The built-in DVD player provides a Parental Protection (G/PG/PG-13/R/NC17/Adult), so you can prevent playback of certain DVD content.

HDMI/MHL Input: The HDMI/MHL input allows you to enjoy high-definition digital images and high-quality sound by connecting a HD device, such as a Blu-ray player, Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad with an HDMI output to the system. The HDMI/MHL input also allows you to connect your MHL Mobile (High-Definition Link) compatible smartphone or tablet to the AVXMTGHR9HD. The unit's HDMI input will support 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals.

  • MHL-Enabled Android Connectivity: Use a microUSB-to-HDMI cable to connect your MHL-enabled Android smartphone or tablet to the Head Rest monitor. Some Samsung Android smartphones (like the Galaxy S3/S4/S5 & Note II/III/IV) will require an additional 5-pin micro USB to 11-pin micro USB adapter (sold separately). You can also your MHL-enabled Android device using the Soundstream or Dual HDMI/MHL cable (sold separately) which plugs into both the unit's HDMI input and USB port. Check here for a list of compatible MHL-enabled Android phones.

I have a 2020 Ford Expedition. How do I know if this system would work in my car and how would I get this professionally installed in my car?
[ Zerxes  Nov 27, 2020 ]
1 answer
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.
[ Calvin  Dec 08, 2020 ]  Staff

[ Quintin  Aug 21, 2020 ]

I have a Pioneer AVH NEX 4200, can I hook these headrests up to this so that I can control it from the HU? I know the NEX 4200 has an output for it. I would like to install for kids but control the dvd's from the front.

Sorry dont know
[ Jorge  May 08, 2018 ]
The Pioneer AVH-4200NEX features a composite video jack and 3.5mm audio jack to output AV signals to the Audiovox AVXMTGHR90HD head rest monitors. Using the Pioneer as an input source would also give you full control over the audio/video playing through the monitors. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!

Can the remote work from the front seat or does it need a line of sight?
[ Cworth  Mar 20, 2018 ]
1 answer
The remote is infrared so, it does require "line of sight" to the sensor at the base of the monitor.
[ Ryan  Apr 04, 2018 ]  Staff
Do you sell an adapter to allow these to work like a factory rear entertainment system and use the rear speakers only while the factory nav can use the front speakers?
[ Tony g  Mar 17, 2018 ]
1 answer
We don't have any adapters that allow this aftermarket headrest monitors to be wired in place of factory ones. The best we might be able to do is give the stock radio an aux audio input so that the audio from these can be played through all the speakers. If that setup can work for you, then I recommend calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 to see if we can give your stock radio an aux audio input My Bio:

I already have an overhead video monitor would I be able to connect two of this screens with my existing one overhead monitor ?
[ Marco  Feb 15, 2016 ]
1 answer
If your existing overhead video monitor system has either a composite (RCA) or HDMI video output, you can connect that to one of the available video inputs on the Audiovox AVXMTGHR9HD. I hope that helps. My Bio:

Does each headrest have its own dvd player or do they share?
[ Clint  Jan 14, 2016 ]
1 answer
Purchasing this item you would get one headrest monitor and it has the dvd player built in. You can purchase two units and connect them together. Each monitor can play their own video or using the supplied cables you can connect them together and watch the same DVD on both monitors. Hope that helps.
[ Kenny  Jan 16, 2016 ]  Staff
Audiovox AVXMTGHR9HD is this hardwired to my fuse box?
[ Brad  Dec 03, 2015 ]
1 answer
Yes. The monitor requires 12volt switched (ACC) power and ground connections. The factory fuse panel is the best place to get the power lead connected. I hope that helps!
