will an LCD TV fit in my car?

I want to buy a 40" LCD TV, but my only concern if the TV will fit in my car with the box and everything... I have a MZ3 with subs on the trunk... so I was thinking to try to make it fit in the back seats.. do you guys think it will fit?

No one can answer that not knowing the dimensions of the box. Go to the store, ask for the dimensions of the box, bring a tape measure in case they don't have one and then measure your car.

Man I was about to make a Pimp My Ride joke cuz I thought you wanted to mount the tv in your car!

I don't think it would fit in the box.  If you take it out it might.  Where are you buying it from?  Call and ask them to measure the box for you .

Re: will an LCD TV fit in my car?

I fit a 46" LCD in my hatch - it was almost as wide as the entire cabin and was long enough to stretch from the seatback to the hatch door, the case was about 9" thick. I'm not sure how wide or tall the truck opening is on the sedan, if the seats fold flat like they do on the hatch, then you shouldn't have any trouble as long as the opening is tall/wide enough. Borrow a friends Hatch/SUV if you're worried.

Re: will an LCD TV fit in my car?

find the function for the surfaces of ur trunk then integrate the volume..

ok ok, lets be more practical..

i doubt it will fit with the box, so u can try putting just the TV inside and put padding around it (like pillows or whatever) and drive slow and make sure its stable..

but renting a truck for $20 sounds like a much better idea

(yes, i know this is a useless post)

Eh, take the subs out and put the back seat down, you should be fine. And if you have to take it out of the box, who cares, just wrap that shit up in a blanket or something. As long as there isn't any other extraneous shit floating around back there it'll be fine.

Re: will an LCD TV fit in my car?

I fit a Sharp Aquos 40" in my back seats. It was a tight fit though. It won't fit through the trunk even if you didn't have the sub box, the trunk lip is to high to pass the box through the trunk to the back seats, with the seats folded down, and use all that lovely room. Now if it was out of box it would fit through with the seats folded down.

So I'd say probably, most manufacturer's boxes are around the same size. If the box is much bigger by more then I'd say about 1/2-1 inch in width (I believe that was the tightest dimension) then it probably won't fit through the rear seat doors.

What you might be able to do though is to fold the passenger seat all the way back and slide it in through the front and in to the back doing some seat origami if it won't fit in the sides.

Final option, a 40" TV will deffinitely fit out of box...but your stuck with having to carefully unpack it in the parking lot, loading it up and trying not to mess it up getting it home. If you have to fall back on that I suggest a few blankets to cover the screen carefully.
