ok now i dont know what i want to do. i want a screen in my car but i dont know what kinda set up i want. i know the better way would be to get a deck and screen in one but i dont think it would look to good in my car. this is a pic of a car like mine.

what i was thinking is where the heat controls r i was going to put a deck there and the screen where he has his deck..?? now what i would like to know is would this be a good idea or should i just get the screen deck? also wich way would be cheaper? plus if i did get the screen and the flip out deck screen would i be able to run the second screen right off the deck????? thankz..

Why not put it where your vents maybe are?

The problem with the Truck is that unless the windows are tinted well, that screen screams "please steal me!!!" (Although I guess if it's a show only vehicle that's not a problem). The nice thing about a flip out deck is that it is stealthy. If you have the money I think you should go for an 'all in one' unit. The screen would filp out to cover your air controls and I think it would give a really nice depth to your dash.

I'm getting a flip out screen installed over top of my deck next week and I'll be sure to post pics. Unlike your car, I do have a double din setup in my car but it might give you an idea anyway.

Oh, one more thing. You asked about running a second screen off the deck. Most screens have a video input as well as an ouput. Therefore your signal can simply be sent from your source to the first screen and then continued on to the next screen through the first screen's output.
