I decided to slowly (budget allowing) to upgrade my Nitro after 19 months of ownership. I first added a DVD/Nav unit the Dual XDVDN8290 a great price online. Then two 6.5" JVC KV-MH6510 headrest monitors also a great price online. I purchased the monitors prior to reading someone's post about anything over 5.5" will not sit flush with the factory headrest. But I feel the place where I had them installed did an outstanding job at making them look good. Next I plan on upgrading the speakers and adding a sub later on in the fall. I am thinking about the Infinity Kappa 60.9cs for the speakers. Then I will start working on the exterior. I know I have taken a chance with Dual but so far so good hopefully I won't get burned.

The DVD/Nav has been great I had that for about a month now. The headrest monitors I just got put in today so other than playing with them for a few minutes I haven't really tested them out yet but they look great. I am taking a road trip next Friday so I will get to test everything out then. And thanks after reading about and looking at everyone's work especially KickerNitro's setup I was a little intimidated to post my low end setup. :shy:

Don't worry mate, it's better than mine! Looks good I have decided not to go with the headrest monitors, I am looking at trying to source some headrest monitors with built in DVD for the kids. The inifinity are a great speaker I am tninking of the Bostons for mine.

Well done

Wow that looks so awesome! Did you do the headrests yourself?
Thanks, but I wasn’t brave enough to do the cuts myself and I wouldn’t even know where to begin on wiring it. I just searched online to find the best price I can find and searched for a spot that will do the install for a reasonable price. It took awhile to find a spot that does both great work and for reasonable price but I found one and will continue to use them. If someone is looking for a spot pm me (I don’t think I can post that information) and I will give you their info or if you want the online store I purchase from.

Thanks! I have been traveling the last two years so I haven't been putting money into the Nitro but I decided this year I am not going anywhere. I decided to make myself happy with the Nitro again (was jealous of my friend's Xb and falling in love the 2011 Ford Edge Sport). Goals for the year are tinting the windows, lowering it, Angel Eyes, fog lights and finally upgrading the sound system. I was really shocked at how good the wheels looked on it so I am going to start taking care of her again. So I will be around more than I have been.
