John,

How hard was it to wire the rear tv? What route did you take to get the wires to the tv? How did you mount it to the roof? I'm planning on buying the 15.2" version and was just wondering what I'm in for. Overall how long did it take you?

Thanks
Jon

[quote:eea55028bf="1kewlelement"]I did all the install myself. It's always a fun install to do audio and video. I like the challenge.

I've had that Jensen monitor for about 2 1/2 years now. I just had it lying around in the garage. I upgraded the rear monitor for our expedition to a 10.4". I will do the same thing in the futre for the element. I might upgrade to the 9" wide screen or maybe bigger.

I buy a lot of my stuff locally here in Phoenix. I go through wholesalers or buy some stuff from the internet.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need assistance with your install or upgrade.

My original upraded to the audio video was the dvd in the overhead compartment and the overhead monitor. I used the OEM deck's AUX input. I converted it to RCA and ran all the wire to the back to give it that stock look.

John,

I was looking at a Lux Mobil (Luxma) 10.4 or 15. The 15" is running about $575. I'm mostly looking for this to do video playback to entertain my kids while we drive.

Thanks
Jon

What size screen did you put in your Elemnt? I can't decide if a 7.2, 10.4 is big enough or if I should make the jump to the 13.3 or the 15"?[/quote:92fa03b725]

The one we currently have in there is only a 6.8" Square screen. It's not a bad size since there's only one back row seats. I am considering either a 9" wide screen or a 10.4". If we go bigger than a 10.4", we'll go with a wide inch(16:9) rather than a square (4:3). But, if you do like to go camping and will use your element as a mobile video tent, they I woud go with a minimum 10.4 to a 17".

Check a lot of the prices on-line. 10.4" monitors ang bigger range from $375 - $1000. If you are not sure of the quality of a particular monitor, feel free to email me the brand and model and I will let you know. I have installed quite a variety of LCD monitors and found that some are definitely better than others.

Here are pics of the 10.4" in our Expedition:

John,

How did you mount the Jenson overhead? I just got a 9" wide screen and am wondering how you mounted it?

Thanks
Jon

[quote:0e0be0c6fe=" "]zarathustra,

Since I did all the install, I saved quite a bit of $$.
The pyle in-dash dvd cost me $130
The clarion in-dash tv cost me $87 only (It was broken and I acquired it for free and got it fixed)
The Jensen overhead cost me $375 from over 2 years ago.
The RCA converter cost $4
The Alpine sub-level controller cost $50
The Clarion Cd-changer cost $24.99

Pretty smokin deal for all that stuff.
