This is my problem I have a CKO In-Car DVD Player 1/2din which get distorted when I turn it up?I can?t turn the volume no more the (1 Bar)
The car that I am using is a BMW Mini Cooper S I have the BMW upgrade Harman Kardon audio system, which has a powerful amp..
Because the DVD player has a amp and the head unit also has a amp?the is being amplified to many times in distorts.
Can anyone suggestion something that I could use between the DVD player & the head unit to reduce the distortion maybe something that reduces the power of the DVD player out put so I could turn it up and get a better all round sound.

You are probably clipping in that midrange. Since the DVD player is fine and CD player is distorting: they are line level outputs, If you are running those through an equalizer- the equalizer should allow you add in a 10db attenuation.
If you are running them straight to the amp, The CD line level output should be about 1.5 volt peak to peak, it may be the line level input of your amp is only 1 volt and the DVD player simply has that level of output so does not clip..
Simply adding into the cable a 0.1 microfarad polyester capacitor for each channel should be enough attenuation to avoid clipping. The midrange is where you hear the most content in large part because that is the range that the human ear is most sensitive to. Which is why that portion clips. The DVD audio is actually recorded to the same specs as CD audio. You can confirm this by playing your CD disk in your DVD player. .
If the player has other outputs try connecting the player to the tv
using one of them, ie: use the A/V output instead of HDMI from the
player. If the problem goes away there is something wrong with the
input on the tv.
I would try hooking something else up to your tv that is hdmi compatible. If your tv looks fine, then you know it would be the dvd player. If it's the dvd player, then I would suggest getting a different brand completely. I have had alot of bad experiences myself and other people as well when it comes to the philips brand
