SiriusXM Satellite Radio System
 

Satellite radio subscription service offers hundreds of commercial free channels with all kinds of programming. Music channels are arranged by genre. Talk radio, sports programming and news is available too. Although satellite radio offers specialized programming and hundreds of channels, just like cable at home, your local AM and FM channels aren’t available via satellite. You’ll need to use the traditional radio in your car to access those.

Many radios, including the factory installed radio in your car are “satellite ready”. That means you can add satellite radio without having to replace the head unit. In some cases, an additional tuner is required, and that tuner can simply be plugged in and controlled by the head unit once your subscription is active. If your head unit isn’t satellite ready, you can add satellite radio with a satellite vehicle kit. The vehicle kit includes a satellite tuner and antenna that are installed in addition to your head unit. The audio signal from the vehicle kit is connected to the car’s audio system by plugging it into an available aux input jack. Alternately, an FM transmitter can be used to send the sound from the satellite kit to the factory installed radio. This connection scheme should be considered a last resort, especially in areas where the FM band is full of stations as sound quality is often not stellar.

You can also access satellite radio programming with your smartphone using an app. See more about this in the subsequent section, “Connecting Your Phone”.

If you’re a satellite radio enthusiast, opt for the dedicated satellite tuner designed to work with your head unit, whether it’s the factory installed unit or an aftermarket unit. Sound quality and signal reliability will be best and using it will be more convenient.

I tried to put in my own car stereo, Crutchfield made it seem easy! I bought $400 worth of stuff from them, and tried to install it myself. It was only after one of the $110 dollar tweeters blew, and the stereo started to sound like a kazoo, that I realized, " I don't know crap about car stereo." So, after riding around for a couple days with only the right side speakers playing, because the left tweeter was blown and unlistenable, I stopped into Long Radio. I moved up to western MA about 10 years ago. I had always heard that Long Radio was the place to go. I stopped at the West Springfield store, which is across the street from where I work. I spoke with Aaron, and after about five minutes, I realized this young man knows! He showed me what he would do, and in 20 min, I had all the parts picked, and had scheduled an appointment for install. The total price wasn't cheap, or inexpensive. Good news...totally worth every penny! Aaron, and the guys in service, are so professional and good at what they do, that spending $2,600, over 6 times what I paid for the Crutchfield stuff, seems like a great deal, given what my stereo sounds like now, and that I have hands free voice, pandora, xm and bluetooth, where before I had am/fm/cd. Spending the money on the stereo has made me realize I never needed a new car, just a stereo! I am very grateful that I chose Aaron and Long Radio to do my car stereo. We all need "guys" to help us. You know, " I got a guy who..." I have found the guys who do car stereo right! I plan on having some other stuff done, but right now, I am just really enjoying listening to a finely tuned car stereo system! Best to you all at Long! Happy Holidays! Most Sincerely, David N. Goss
