Has anyone seen a Clarion in dash double din TV receiver. I saw it in Turbo Magazine or Super Street in one of their featured cars. Didnt have a # though and I couldnt see it. Any info on anything that resembles what I vaguely described would be appreciated.

TV 1

TV 2

TV 3

TV 4

It was most likely one of these units, but that means it was build into the radio opening (probably a custom flush mounting). These are all the monitors that clarion makes. I am assuming that it was not a fold-out. Basically it is just a monitor in a mounting kit, in place of the head unit, so all the av, tv, dvd/cd players all must have been installed elsewhere. If this was the case then the whole system must be operated by remote(s).

If this is still not it scan the photo and post it, I will be better able to help you.

LOL, it was none of those actually i worded it all messed up, it was a whole CD/TV deal. It was double din the whole front was a screen. Im guessing it folded down and behind it was a cd/tape deck or dvd/tape deck combo. I'll try and get the number or scan the pic. Thanks man.

Blah, forget it man. I was thinking I could move and cut a few things in the civic to make it fit but i dont think theres an easy way. And I dont want to modify it TOO much. It's only a single din opening with the vents above the radio opening and the heater controls below. I was going to cut out half the vents and throw it in there but then I would have to re route the vents and who knows how it would look.

Tito,
Take a pic of your dash for me, and post it. I'll give you a few idea to get you going. If your opening is a single din, I'll get you a list of fold out tuner/cd/monitor, manufacturers. If you would rather just e-mail me the pics,

I'll try to photoshop some of my ideas for you. Although I am learning to use this so please to god bare with my primitive photoshop abilities I am just learning this stuff. And learning to use it is supposed to be my free time.

But soon my son you’ll master the art, or so my brain tells me…

OK, I know it's not a great shot but you get the idea right? See the only thing im not sure of here is the vents. If I get one that flips open the monitor part is going to cover up the vents, and let's say the heat or ac is on wont that mess up the tv?? Thanks for the help man.

I'll try with this one, but could you get me one of straight on the dash, so to capture the dash as it is flush with the car. I will be better able graft the units into one like I am requesting, b/c of the tuff angle with the one supplied. If not I search out one of someone elses car and do theirs.

If you have the fold out monitor, it will be okay near the vents. So long as you don't give it [email protected] or [email protected], when it is open for hours on end, you will be okay. Remeber you can always close and/or redirect the vents (factory options).

Most monitor/tuner/cd players are getting pretty good at handeling the heat. Most cd players nominal op temp is 50-55 degrees C, (about 115 -125F????), so that is close to the heat it might see from your vents. the cold is not a problem either, We here hit close to -40C, and they seem to work okay. Note just don't apply any pressure to them at this temp.

I'm guessing the single din, touch screen, ya thats a sweet unit, but so pricy for the options. I'll try finding a good pic of a dash like yours, and try the the photoshop. Like i e-mail ya earlier, you need something custom just hollar, I'll get ya everything & or whatever you need, info to parts.

Oh let me know what yr your hatch is please, so I can search out the right one.
Thanks,
Jakub

This might be slightly off topic but are there any head units with an LCD screen, AM/FM tuner, CD.DVD player, that DO HAVE side tilt capability. I know the Kenwood does and it supposed to have good side viewing but IMHO the angle of the Supra dash is just too angled for the passenger to see well. Any units like this in 2-din? Any coming anytime soon to the market?

This is somehting that you are looking for.

So far not too many companies offer side to side, due to the axis problems.


Tito, So far I am gathering the in-dash monitors, I am somewhat getting the hang of this, I will have something for you sunday/monday.

Ya the joyride is cool, decked out a awd town and county, just recently, it was so sweet. All the guy said he needed a mobile office. So, he got what he wanted, but it cost him big$$$$
The guy even got a satalite cellular hook up, to be able to run a constant connection via internet. Nuts is all I can say. Oh yeah he even had a laser printer, that was just the topper, could stop smiling when he told me that is what he wanted.

Yeah, that is defintely a nice unit. However am I right in concluding that I would also need a AM/FM tuner/CD player in the other DIN slot. I would want those options as well. Also, that unit looks to be off-silver colored and might be hard to match aesthetically to a another.

Would anyone like to suggest a tuner/cd player for the other space that would be of high quality and would match this unit aesthitically and color wise?

On the nose, but it does play cds. :)

Note it is a good idea to match source units to accessories, because of possible compatibility options, although a good installer will be able to mix and match different components with great success.

Black looks good with silver, you can also have the trim ring around the tuner painted silver to match the Panasonic. But to make the in your face styling of Panasonic I recommend using alpine, their cd/tuners and video/audio products are very nice stuff, and very good to work with.



Just follow this links and navigate the site a bit, and you'll find the source units. Alpine does make silver as well.
