Noob deck wiring question with screens

im not too familiar dvd screens and flipouts and what not, But, since i will be creating a "baller" SUV, I want to put some screens in there.

now, I have a Panasonic CQ-C8413U (BEST deck I have ever owned), and it makes my subs sound nice and puts out nice clearity to my speakers with its high-pass filter. I want to use this Panasonic deck for my speakers and subs. But I also want a single din DVD Flip-out screen, and when im on dvd

k, soo my dvd deck would be used all the time, but I want my sound from the dvd deck to pass through the panasonic deck

now my Panasonic deck has a AUX input, Front and Rear speaker output, and a Sub output. What do I need to look for interms for outputs on a dvd deck? or would my panasonic deck even support such an idea? lol

...wow why is it soo hard to explain myself?

Yes this can be done with ease. Take the front preout of whatever dvd you decide to use and connect it to the aux in on the Panasonic. Now with that answered, will your dash support two units and if you could achieve more with a single unit, would you consider that?

There is space for 2 decks, but I think I will need to upgrade my alternator in order to run any system anyways.

The reason why I want to use the 2 deck idea is becuase the deck position is pretty low in the cab, and I figure with a flip-out, the screen will be positioned a bit higher.

and I also was told from the shop that most dvd decks have horrible speaker output quality and they do not put out as much pre-out voltage as just plain decks, especially my panasonic one.
