Our take on the SIRIUS 50-foot Antenna Extension Cable

by James Ralston

Your SIRIUS antenna's cable may not be long enough if you're installing a SIRIUS radio in an extra-large vehicle, boat, business, or home. This 50-foot extension cable lets you make long cable runs with ease. Warranty: 1 year.

A SIRIUS antenna is not included. This extension cable is only compatible with single-input SIRIUS antennas.

Overview: The SIR-EXT50 is a 50' extension cable with an in-line amplifier for use with Sirius antennas; the kit is not compatible with XM satellite radio antennas. It can be used for Sirius mobile or home receivers.

Cable and Connector: The SIR-EXT50 antenna extension cable is a single 50' coaxial cable with single SMB connectors (without the plastic FAKRA-type plastic housing) on each end. The extension cable is equipped an in-line signal amplifier (10dB gain) on one end with a weather-resistant rubber boot. The other end plugs directly into single-input Sirius Satellite Radio receivers.

Extension Limits: No more than 2 extension kits should be connected back-to-back.

Cable Care: The full length of the extension cable should be used--it should not be cut, spliced or otherwise shortened. The cable should not be kinked. You should avoid bending the cable in a radius of less than an inch. The cable can be used outdoors, but it should not be exposed to severe environmental conditions. The in-line signal amplifier should be mounted upright, oriented so the label is readable right side up.

Is there a specific way to hook this up.? [ wayne  Aug 25, 2014 ]

  • Pretty straight forward, plugs in between the antenna lead and your receiver. [ KEVIN   Aug 26, 2014 ]
  • Yes, In my application the smaller end of this cable went into the Sirius SXV200V1 tuner, and the larger end I connected to my car's factory Sirius antenna. [ Nick   Aug 26, 2014 ]
  • It's just like an extension cord. One end is male and the other has a female end inside of that large plastic thing. To conserve space I removed the big plastic cover from around the female end and then covered the connection with shrink tubing. [ Donald   Aug 26, 2014 ]
  • Hi Wayne, The 50 foot extension cable is really easy to apply. There are many applications that you can use: For example some people bury the cable underground some simply tuck it under the house siding if applicable. One side connects to the antenna port on the radio back the other side to the antenna itself. Don't be afraid to tackle it. Make sure the antenna is pointed correctly using the signal strength meter on your Sirius Radio and have someone spot you on the ladder... Enjoy the Music! Bob [ ROBERT   Aug 26, 2014 ]
