Inputs and Outputs


Overview: When used with a compatible Clarion head unit, this tuner allows you to receive SIRIUS satellite radio programming in your vehicle. In addition to this tuner, you must have a subscription to SIRIUS Radio and a SIRIUS-compatible antenna to receive SIRIUS digital satellite radio signals.

Note: Satellite radio service is available only within the continental United States. Service is not available in Alaska and Hawaii.

Stand Alone Operation: The tuner has a mode switch that allows you to choose CeNET or Stand Alone operation. In CeNET mode, the tuner is controlled by a compatible Clarion head unit. In Stand Alone mode, the tuner is controlled by an optional controller (DSC920S).

SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS Satellite Radio programming features up to 100 channels of digital-quality music, news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming nationwide, many of which are commercial-free. For a monthly subscription fee, you can receive SIRIUS signals in your car.

Selecting Channels: The tuner allows you to select channels by number or category. Channels are organized into various program categories. You can search between the different categories and then search among the channels within each category. Some head units offer a channel scan feature and all have presets for your favorite stations.

CD Changer Pass-Through: The SIRIUS radio tuner uses the CD changer input on the Clarion head unit. If you also want to use a CD changer, there is a CD changer pass-through connection on the SIRIUS radio tuner, so they can be daisy chained together.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ive been using it for about a year now, and I couldnt be happier, It was easy for me to install, and had an easy interface with my clarion deck. If you arent familiar with car audio installation though, I would still recommend professional installation.
