Headrest Monitors

We are taking a trip to California in a few weeks, and the kids are used to the gas guzzlin Durango with the dvd in the back. We have gotten so used to them having it, that we felt it was necessary to install headrests into the Focus...


The leather match is perfect (besides the stitching).. These are on clearance at Best Buy for $159 each. They each have their own independent dvd players, built in FM modulator to listen to either screen over the radio..built in IR receiver for headphones, a 3.5mm jack for normal style headphones, external speakers even...the kids can watch the same movie on each screen, or change vice versa. The system also comes with remotes for easy controls.. the screens arent the biggest at 7", but they are LED backlit, and very clear. For the money, the system will work great for our trips! Install wasnt too bad, the hardest part was figuring out how to remove the center console, or rather how to take it apart enough to gain access underneath.. wiring was simple and straight forward..

Very clean install and good color match, that's becoming more and more difficult to do at a decent price.

Those look amazing. I've been trying to convince my mom to get these installed in our Suburban. I'd put them in my car, but I don't have kids yet

The headrests in my '13 Titanium 5 dr. ratchet forward into a bunch of different positions. Will these still do that?
