Hell my last vehicle didnt even had headrests doubt Ford cared about that back in 1984.[b] My 2003 Jetta GLI VR6 headrests can be angled any way that I want. Oh and my dads Jag and my moms A4. My mazda 6... doesnt. Lame.
QUOTE Quote Originally posted by ChronoB Bear in mind that mazda has designed a seatheadrest system to reduce whiplash. Swapping out the headrests with some other kind might hinder that system or even counteract it. From mazdas website The front seatbacks feature an anti-whiplash design with supportive springs and a new-style head restraint that helps prevent the rearward lurching of the head
QUOTE Quote Originally posted by mazda6s_in_ky Im not collision expert by any means but I do not see how this headrest will reduce whiplash more so than a normal flat (comfortable) headrest. To me it looks like it will make it worse. Instead of giving your body a smooth somewhat flat surface to absorb impact from a rear end collision there is no support for your neck. So as your body is thrown back
The only thing I would do differently is I would splice the AV wires so that I could run them through the supports posts of the seat backs or find a monitor that had one end un terminated. And this site lets you send in any headrest monitor they will install it for you and ship it back. They also have complete kits and are the only site I found that supports the mazda6
sry110 actually the headrest runs almost parallel with the monitor. It is just that I sat as far back in the rear seat and at an angle to get both screens in the same pic. I may have to adjust it a little though which is not a big deal -- my tutorial will explain more... I will take more pictures tonight for a more detailed show. And I have to work on that tutorial too..... diesel5599 the 7 is just

Their price includes both headrests 7 monitors FM modulator wireless headphones and DVDTV tuner. I paid 285 for my 7 tv in the dash 400 for my dvdmp3 pioneer head unit and I installed that myself.. as far

[snapback]464541[snapback] Did you install the 3rd headrest yourself if so then how did you do that I was thinking about doing it myself by just buying the headrests and installing them but don&39t know how to. Thanks.

Not a very easy task just to check for something. [snapback]465999[snapback]

How have you connected the head rest LCDs [snapback]347775[snapback] Thanks as for the headrest...I ran wires down the seats under the rug and into the center console. From there I wired both headrest to the lighter plug. Now my radio (pioneer dvh-p5000mp) has Two video outs lables front and rear.
Wow i like it the setup is VERY similiar to mine (search 8 touchscreen navi installed). Those headrest sets they have any glare if not im thinkin about gettin me a pair now wow they look nice. how much did u get those headrest stes for anyways i see em for about 150 each. anyways let me know thanks. anyone know of a good dvd mp3 cd player that would work good in a car thats cheap like i have everything

I see this board has really gone downhill when n00bs try to flame someone for posting usefull information. The only person I bought the screens for is myself seeing morons speak is funny nonetheless. What do aftermarket rims tinted windows headrest monitors and underbody neons have in common They were bought to please their owners was any of it necessary No that&39s why its called a hobby not a utility. Disagreeing with someone else&39s choice of modifications contributes nothing to the hobby as a whole unless said aforementioned input was requested. But alas I digress to the moronic level of the flamers. As promised I&39ve posted pics of silver on blk headrest monitors in a silver 6 for anyone interested.
Quote Thanks that one took about 2hrs not counting getting the faceplate off. This was back when I still had the factory HU. [b] Nice work on your setup I&39m thinking of doing a self-install of some headrest monitors this weekend. I&39ve got a pair of Icon 6.5 on the way but I&39m not sure how difficult they are to mount. I certainly don&39t wanna f-- up my headrests. Any helpful advice.. I&39m assuming you installed yours yourself. Thanks- [fontArial]

you guys are knocking it but you have really no idea what it looks like i have a set of the mazda symbol not mazda on each headrest front and rear . in a aluminum looking silver mine are not vinyl its almost like a very thin metal . i bought them a while ago and cant remeber where . its on my black leather seats . a few members have seen it and they liked it . i think it adds to the interior makes
Quote Will take a picture when I am done went with some 9 wides I love the bulkier headrest it came with looks better than the sleek ones that came with the 6. [b] well where the hell are the pix my tr4 has headrest monitors but it was done at a shop. this time if i decide to get some for the m6 i&39d like to do it myself. so any tips or pix you want to share
That looks really cool. Remember when headrest monitors were pretty much the most pimped out thing you could do to a car Now it&39s no big deal I&39ve got custom leather so I&39m sure I couldn&39t find a headrest that matches perfectly. Can anyone comment on how to install monitors into the stock headrests
Um...it&39s takes some skill to mod the stock headrests. I think it consists of something similar to this Remove the leathercloth cover cut the foam out of the headrest for the screen. Fit the screen and build a bracket to house it (sometimes you can buy premade) Glue the bracket and screen in place. Drill a hole and run the wire down the metal pole (I don&39t believe ours are hollow either). Wire it all up.
chikoo no the first one shown is a headrest screen but not an OEM kit and the second one does not have that custom look to it. The pic below is one of the kits I am talking about but I have not seen a complete kit for the M6 yet. Basically I want to just get a kit and drop in the headrests everything even the FM modulator is included as shown below. If you get just the screens you still have to get
well get some pics up but the getting free tvs are the least of your probelms. Its doable but how good are these LCDs what would the cost be Your sister doesnt mind having torn up headreast I mean to install the LCDs properly in the headrests will take a lot of work unless you just hot glue them to the back of the headrest and have the wires taped to the back of the seat... not to sound like a dic
Has anyone taken the cloth off of their headrests before I don&39t beleive that the cloth from the headrest is glued to the foam inside but it may be. If anyone has taken the cloth off of their headrest to embroider it let me know how you did it.
I want to embroider the headrests with a custom logo and install moniters in the two front headrests. Yeah I figured out today that I cannot remove the covers. So unless I can figure out a way to embroider the fabric while it is ON the headrest or find custom made covers for the 6. But I want them to match the fabric of the car.
Hey thanks for that damned if i know where i&39ll put the dvd player Maybe a 6 stacker under the passenger seat Does anyone know how much room is under there I honestly dont know how i&39d get my hands on the metra kit (im in Australia).. i&39m already up for 300 for a dash kit from japanparts.com - pic below - to house alpines hard disk player which also means i can&39t do an LCD in the map pocket.
I&39ll get you exact measurements (in cm) when I get my car back right now it is in the shop. I would think you could still get the dashkit the shipping would probably be more but it would definitely be worth it. Right now I have my DVD player in the trunk mounted on the sub box and it is a complete pain. Not to mention when the bass hits the DVD skips. What you could do is reverse mount the brackets
Hi all Anyone had a chance to measure their headrestsconsole yet thanks Lockie.
