long story short I have one video output on my head unit and I would like to hook it up to 4 monitors. as of rite now i'm using a series of RCS's and Y adaptors and If I only have one monitor on at a time it's fine but if I have any more on they all just flash alot, but I know they all work I just cant get a steady video signal. also I don't know if maybe I can get a signal booster, I havn't seen such a thing but any help would be apreciated.

Thats a really good one but all you need is a video amp for 12v applications this is a cheaper on but you do get what you pay for IMHO
Amazon.com: XO Vision AMP718 1 I/7 O Video Amplifier: Car Electronics
Just remember dont and i repeat DONT use regular RCAs to run your video from the deck to the vid amp and on to your tvs.Use Video RCA,the OHM loads are different for video Signal VS audio signal and its the main cause of the dreaded STATIC and lines on your Tv that makes a good install look like a preschooler did it.Spend good money on wire and never ever have a issue.
Hope that helped

Thanks man that helped me out allot actually and I had no idea the audio was different from video. And I'll admit that I went cheap and bought the RWY RCA and split them in three to get extra video wrie without paying for it

no problem,Post up some pics when your done.And remember take your time run the video wires as far away from any major Power wires and try as hard as you can to relay the TVs off of a 12 volt source and use a good ground.taking some extra time and some preventive measures always makes a better install
