Excellent Sounding Sat Tuner

Written By MD, NC on Tuesday, April 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This XM tuner module sounds superior to any dedicated XM tuner I have installed in previous vehicles.
Great Sound for Satellite Music.
The XM connector cable had to be installed upside down into my JVC head unit making the installation of the head unit back into the dash even more tricky as the XM cable was now in a upside down loop. The rest of the XM cabling was fine with plenty of wire slack where needed. User manual was vague and poor at best in describing XM operation with the JVC radio it was grouped with.

Good product, it put my xm ready deck to work with no problems. The only negative is the cost, but luckily I received a 30.00 rebate to help!
