    Icon14 Flip Down Roof Screen. Cheap ones on ebay work? want to use with xbox. need help

    hey guys

    Ive got a roof screen currently in my infinity, but its not hooked up to anything and its only like a 6" screen. I was looking at these cheap Pyle 15 and 13" screens and was wonderring if I could install it. I dont know how or what wiring they need exactly but thats easy to figure out right?

    19" huge freakin monitor for $400 shipped, built quality and reliability though?

    17" pyle screen, probly my best best, but is the screen really 17" or is that like plastic corner to plastic corner and the screen is **** small? $300 shipped

    17" screen for $300

    13" screen with 2 sets of nice headphone for $215
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/13-Inch-Roof-moun...QQcmdZViewItem

    What I want to know is how to hook one up to my xbox (that has an internal dvd player so I dont need the screen to have it), and if the quality on these screens is any good to watch a flick or play some san andreas...?

    Also would I be able to get my speakers to possibly play through it?

    What I've found with the low buck monitors is that the bigger they are, the more pixelated they look

    Kinda like watching an old school big screen TV up close

    The smaller ones always look more crisp and are usually way cheaper

    Also, I don't really care for the large panel flip downs as they obstruct the rear view quite a bit

    The route I plan on going with my SUV is to get a pair of visor LCD's and mount them on the ceiling behind the front seats so both the center and 3rd row seat passengers get a clear view while my driving view remains unchanged

    TKO screens actually work well eh, they are the cheapest aswell, might not be able to go to 19" though, anyone else have any opinions on pyle or TKO? there very think and very well priced

    Re: Flip Down Roof Screen. Cheap ones on ebay work? want to use with xbox. need help

    I acually took my 16.5" house tv outside and held it up in my car to see what the screen size of 17+ would be like,

    HUGE!!!

    Anyone have any opinions on the reliability of these tvs when used in a high spl stereo?
