Connects to only one of the Antenna leads

Written By 04S60R, Central Ohio on Saturday, May 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Some Volvos are built with two antennas and the Factory connector has Terminations for both. This adapter will only connect one of them to the new Radio. Could be the Factory Radio is needed to select which antenna is providing the best signal.
Pros:
Both ends fit
Cons:
Eliminates one of the factory installed antennas

Antennae adapter

Written By Anonymous, Oregon on Saturday, May 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The adapter converted the stock Volvo plug to a universal plug just like it said. I think the length of the cable could be made a little shorter though.

Perfect!

Written By FrankG, Blacksburg, VA on Tuesday, April 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This adapter did the job perfectly. It fit well and the reception with my new head is better than I had hoped for. I live in the sticks and FM reception from the nearest city is often questionable. I was a little concerned about signal loss in the adapter, but it does a great job. You can't beat the price (Free!) when you get it with a head unit purchase.
Pros:
Good fit, good signal.
Cons:
None.
