Eiger Vision EV-90011 Leather Headrests with LCD Monitors

EV-90011

By Gideon V. – Sonic Electronix Editor

Adding headrest monitors to your vehicle makes it easy to entertain backseat passengers on long road trips. Headrest monitors are truly a godsend for parents, as you can pop in your child’s favorite cartoon movie and keep them entertained for hours. The Eiger Vision EV-90011 line is a great addition to just about any vehicle, as these headrests are available in gray, dark gray, black and beige. At 9″, these monitors will amaze the rear seat passengers with their realistic screen quality.

Since Eiger Vision EV-90011 headrest monitors use IR transmitter technology, rear seat passengers can use wireless headphones to listen to their favorite programming without disturbing the front seat passengers. Imagine listening to your favorite music or radio programming while the “backseat bunch” tunes into their movie or video game soundtrack. In that sense, headrest monitors will make carting your kids around easier than ever before. These LCD screens are great for watching movies, playing video games or for viewing any other types of on-screen media.

In terms of screen quality, this LCD monitor has an immaculate 480 x 234 resolution and a variable 16:9 / 4:3 display for proportionate picture viewing. You can control the brightness, contrast, saturation and tint settings to find the perfect image balance. The screen’s adjustable controls enable you to tilt the screen in order to mitigate the effect of sunlight glare. It also has adjustable mounting poles, which makes it easy to change the height of the headrest monitor.

Eiger Vision’s engineer team wisely incorporated a zipup leather flap as a theft prevention measure. Zipping up the flap conceals the LCD screen when parked. This flap also helps guard against scratches by allowing you to easily cover the screen when it is not in use. When you order these from our website, you get a matching pair of screens, one for the driver’s seat headrest and one for the passenger’s seat headrest. Each pair includes a remote control for navigating through these screen’s menu options.

XM-GTR2022

By Gideon V. – Sonic Electronix Editor

Face it—your car audio system is missing something. You’ve heard your friend’s great systems and it makes you long for some thump in the trunk. You know you want bass, but you are not sure where to turn. The time is now to add the Sony Xplod XM-GTR2022 to your stereo system.

The Sony XM-GTR2022 Xplod GTR series 2-channel amplifier Is rated at 1200 watts of max power. With power like that, it’s no wonder why this amp causes subwoofers and speakers to thump to the beat. To get the most out of this amp, bridge it at 4 ohms for 500 watts of continuous power. With all of that power and bass, you will have no choice but to keep your head bobbing to the music.

In terms of features, you will appreciate the flexibility of this amp. Sony designed this amplifier with speaker level inputs, which makes it possible to connect this amplifier to stereos without RCA outputs. It also includes one pair of RCA outputs to be used with stereos that have RCA output connectivity.

This amp’s design is superior all across the board. Its slim stature makes it easy to mount this amp in tight spaces. The inverted heat-sink design helps it operate fully and efficiently without shutting off. On top of that, its 3-way system protection circuitry helps ensure that you won’t blow your speakers or overheat your amp. The end result is an amp that is extremely durable and built to last.

Sony’s engineers did not leave any detail uncovered when they designed the XM-GTR2022. Even the RCA level inputs and screw terminals are gold-plated, a perfect touch that sets off the amp’s high tech design. The front of the amp reveals flashy blue LED lighting. This LED lighting serves as an indicator of the internal capacitor’s powering activities. Overall, the appealing aesthetic design of the amp is indicative of the amplifier’s excellent performance capability.

This Sony amplifier is a great way to add the missing bass to your system. To hook up the Sony XM-GTR2022, we recommend using 4-gauge power and ground wiring for installation. Contact us for information regarding a discount on select amplifier kits when purchased together with this amplifier.
