I haven't done or seen this done before. What do I need to install, say, a screen and dvd player on a truck (don't want the in dash ones)? What do I need to get some channels? FM modulator? Anybody have some diagrams to hook a small video system up? I've hooked up decks, amps, and speakers, but that's it. Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys.

you just have to get a 12v power supply for it. Im using a regular ol 1.5-12v cig lighter plug-in that was like $10 at best buy

The DVD and/or screens usually have detailed enough information to show the hook-up. If you can hook-up a deck, the DVD player and monitor play the same function in connections.

I just reread that and I guess you needed more hook-up help then product selection. Mostly in video systems its yellow to yellow and red to red, white to white, output to input, input to output

there is no need for that FM modulator if you get the right head unit. Although if you are just wanting to ADD dvd, then you'll have to get one.

Here's mine:

Pioneer MP3, DVD, windows media, CD, etc.... AUX inputs for Video and audio in the back of the deck and I also have a set in the back of the EQ.

The monitor just plugs in from the back of the deck with 3 wires. Ignition/12v/ ground and singl video RCA.

i have a 7.2 flip down in my wifes 01 neon, blacked out the back windows,
the front sides have tint also but not as dark as the back, i did a lemo tint in the back, it helps to see the video's in the day time


7.2 flip down with a ps2 and fm mod hooked up to the stock deck, with a power inver for the ps 2, the tv has on/off on it, ran 8ga from under the hood to a d-block and from the d-block ran 16g to the fm mod, the flip down tv has lights in it, so i took out the stock dome light and used the wires from that for the tv

and i use the cig lighter to turn on the power to the power inver

ran the tv cables down inbetween the 2 doors on the pass side, and hooked that up to the ps2 and then the ps2 rca's that had the sound went up and behind the dash where the fm mod is

the ps2 is mounted under the pass seat, i flush mounted it to the rear of the seat so all u see is the face of the ps2 when u look down,
u have to move ur feet alittle bit when u change out moves and thats it.

under the drivers seat is a small mtx amp and a pair of bass shakers to give that alittle bit of that low range for the movies

the sq is gonna with the fm mod, u can't even tell i have the ps2 hooked up thur the stock deck,
i wanna put an aftermarket cd player that has aux inputs in her car but she has her 4 disc in-dash cd charger and wants to still be able to use it
but ive been thinking about doing a high end kenwood deck with a cd changer
