Entertainment system for executive aircraft?

I know it's rather weird, but it's the assignment that is given to me by my boss. I'd like to know whether it's possible to install audio - video system in an aircraft. I'm talking about a 10-passenger executive turboprop aircraft like Beechcraft King Air B200 or Cessna Conquest, or perhaps Piper Cheyenne. As far as I know, if I have to ask the flight specialist to install specific entertainment system as in commercial airline it would require a loooong time, expensive, and sure we have to deal with flight authority as well.

What my boss had in mind about equipping his corporate aircraft is by installing regular audio-video equipment used in car, as far as the power requirement is sufficient. I wonder what would be the suitable equipment for this purpose: an LCD TV - how big? a portable player? what kind of speaker? How about wiring? The cabin interior is 5.08 m (length), 1.45 m (height), and 1.37 m (width).

Any view about this, comrades? Or perhaps if any of you here is working or maybe running airline / flight business, your information owuld be very much appreciated?

It would be good if you can inform me which site that may provide thigns I want, as it's quite blurry for me here at the moment...

pretty much any maintinence/upgrades you do to aircraft such as that has to be done by a qualified licenced mechanic (or whoever depending on the job).

the only aircraft you can do whatever you want to are homebuilt planes, which you construct 51% or more of it.... in that case you are consitered your "own qualified mechanic".

Can anyone point me to a company website offering such service? Asian (Singapore, Hong Kong) or Australia is preferable.

That's really a broad area. You're better off checking with a local FBO (fixed base operator) for that information.
