Our take on the SiriusXM SXV200V1 Tuner

by Dominic Devito
SiriusXM

Enjoy SiriusXM in your car

SiriusXM's compact SXV200V1 tuner lets you receive satellite radio programming in your car without the need for any additional cables or interfaces. With a compatible car stereo, you can pause, rewind, and replay up to an hour of live broadcasts, plus see alerts when your favorite song, artist, or team is playing on another channel. And with your iPod® connected, you can "tag" songs for purchasing later in the iTunes® store.     

More channels, too

Depending on your subscription package, you'll also be able to enjoy SiriusXM's Xtra Channels with the SXV200V1, giving you access to over 20 new music, sports, entertainment, and dedicated Spanish-language channels. The package includes the hideaway satellite radio tuner, plus an antenna that attaches to your vehicle with its powerful magnetic base.

The SXV200V1 works with in-dash receivers with a "SiriusXM ready" logo. This tuner will not work with your car's factory satellite radio antenna, so you'll have to install the included antenna. You'll also need an XM or SiriusXM subscription. Satellite radio service is available only within the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service is available in Alaska.

Note: Your receiver must have the "SiriusXM ready" logo — this adapter is not compatible with receivers that have "SAT Radio Ready", "Sirius Ready DC", or "XM Ready" logos.

Great receiver

Written By Greg, Near PGH, PA on Thursday, July 24, 2014
 
What can I say, it's a satellite receiver. A breeze to install, just plugs into my receiver, and in my case, even the factory satellite antenna plug fit, although a little loose, so there was no need for the included magnetic mount.
Pros:
Easy to install.
Cons:
None

good unit

Written By mark, MA on Wednesday, July 23, 2014
 
I had the stock unit in my chevy for the xm which I was very happy with. When I decided I wanted to replace the factory unit with an aftermarket upgrade, I was a bit nervous. This unit is very good and performs as well as the original. The only problem you will run into is with XM customer service. I could not understand the first one and when I cancelled the old subscription and opened the new one, they seemed a bit confused.
Pros:
good unit, small and tidy.
Cons:

SiriusXM SXV200V1 Tuner

Written By Anonymous, New Jersey on Thursday, July 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Worked right out of the Box. Found there IS a differnec between Sirius and XM. My wife's car has Sirius. This is an XM receiver. Difference is in programs that come standard. With this unit to get the rebate, you sign up for ALL the channels for 6 months to get 3 months free ( total of 9 months ), after that, I plan just to get the music package, so to me it doesn't matter which Extra;s are included with Sirius and which are included with XM
Pros:
Great add on .. small easy to connect and use.
Cons:
none

Don't cut the wire!

Written By Imp, Seattle on Thursday, June 26, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The cord is really, really long on the antenna but beware that if you cut it to shorten it that it is not an easy cable to reconnect. It's basically a RCA cable with a core wire inside a plastic sleeve with aluminum foil around it and surrounded by a bunch of really thin, really wispy, wires (more like "fibers") that are really thin, hard to strip without cutting, and consequently difficult to solder. The core is fairly stiff (although thin) and easier to solder. I wish I never cut it as it was a real pain to solder it together again. As for Sirius/XM -- well, it's okay but the sound quality is worse than internet radio if you have a good 4G signal.

Great Addition...

Written By S, Kansas City on Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great to have SiriusXM in my 2002 GMC Envoy. This unit works as advertised. One caution...be sure to tune to channel "001" not "1" like the instructions say when you activate your radio. If all the channels do not show up, then tune the radio to "001", go to your SiriusXM Online Account for this radio, and send a Refresh Signal to the radio. All your channels should show up.

Great XM Tuner, easy to install, clear reception, sounds great.

I purchased the Kenwood KDC 8597 stereo and matched them up with two pairs of the KFCX683C speakers for the front and rear locations on my F-250 Super Duty as recommended by the Crutchfield staff. I also purchased the receiver system for the Sirius XM radio.The sound is excellent! I install it myself, it took about 3 hour total but it was an easy install, thanks to the instructions provided. I would recommend Crutchfield to everyone looking to upgrade their factory radio, the products are great and their prices are right on!

Easy install, excellent sound!

ordered with Kenwood DNX891HD. Basically a plug-n-play install. Replaced OEM Nav/Radio that had XM Satellite. The car's OEM antennas / XM tuner seemed less prone to drop outs due to obstructions. I drive / live in suburban area where trees are most common tall structures are trees. I wish a converter was included to use original OEM antennas
Pros:
compatible wit unit, ease of install
Cons:
Antenna / unit seems more prone to signal drops.

Went through 2 tuners in 6 months

Written By DBtwoz, Georgetown, KY on Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this tuner with a new Pioneer receiver and after approximately 3 months it became stuck on Channel 1 and wouldn't accept a refresh signal. After jumping through all kinds of hoops (over an hour) with SiriusXM customer service and them sending refresh signal after refresh signal, they agreed to send me another tuner. Now, a little over 3 months later I have the same issue, which again could not be rectified during a half hour phone call to customer service. They are now sending me a different type of tuner (Onyx), which I do not want.
Pros:
Small and easy to install.
Cons:
Not reliable for the long term.

Sensitive Antenna

Written By Clemson guy, Atlanta, GA on Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unit functions as advertised. Antenna too sensitive. Under trees or around buildings and signal is lost. Unit does not seem to buffer the signal to play thru intermittent signal losses.
Pros:
Plays as it should when the signal is strong.
Cons:
antenna way too sensitive to blockage. I have other automobiles with XM factory installed, no issues.

I needed a new radio in my Ford 2002 Ranger and decided on a Kenwood DPX500BT. I have Sirius in my Ford 2011 Fusion and looked forward to having it in the Ranger too.
Pros:
Simple to install and register.
Cons:
I didn't know the antenna was to be mounted on the outside of vehicle with a magnet. Would have preferred inside on windshield like factory installed in Fusion.

Great Sirius XM Receiver

Written By bigjim, Sparta, TN on Friday, April 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is the best way to add Sirius XM to your auto. I paired it with a Kenwood DDX471HD receiver and it's a perfect fit.
Pros:
easy to install, out of sight with no wires showing. Looks like a factory install.
Cons:
NONE!

Sirius XM added to Alpine UTE-52BT

Written By The Coz!, Maricopa, AZ on Monday, March 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Ordered this unit when my head unit died on my 2005 Dodge Ram. I was interested in a digital media unit since my family doesn't use disc's when we are traveling. I was also deciding between a HD unit or a Sirius XM unit. I did not find a HD unit within my needs, and thought I would buy this unit with the Sirius XM attachment. This was a simple install thanks to the directions and the supports of Crutchfield. I went ahead and soldered the wire and heat shrinked to make sure the connection is secure. The dash comes apart and it was a bit tight adding the Sirius XM module behind the unit, but it fit with a little of finesse. Bluetooth wire hid behind the dash and attached to the driver's side sun visor with no kink or problems.
Pros:
More stations added through my head unit control. Sirius XM unit hidden behind the stereo. Great for road trips.
Cons:
Subscription required for Sirius XM. I wouldn't recommend for a short commute.

Needs improvements

Written By losinsanity, Tucson, AZ on Monday, March 31, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The best thing about this tuner is the ability to pause live radio. Other than that, I don't like that I can't use the antenna the stock stereo was using. Had to hook it up to the included little antenna and mount it on my dash. Its not really noticeable, by it still annoys me. The other problem I have is the volume. I have to turn up some bass settings and turn up the volume when I switch to satellite from any other source. I don't understand why the source is so weak. Unfortunately there is not any other options besides a separate stand alone unit, which would defeat the purpose of me buying a SXM ready Pioneer.
Pros:
Pause live radio
Cons:
Antenna and volume

THIS IS AN XM TUNER!!

Written By MLJ, MD on Saturday, March 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Warning: This is an XM tuner. I had Sirius radio on my previous stereo for the past 14 years. I had this SiriusXM tuner installed today. When I called Sirius to move the service to this new tuner they told me that this is an XM tuner not a Sirius tuner. The problem with that is, you do not have access to the same set of channels unless you pay $35 more a year. When I complained to the SiriusXM reps they told me to remove this tuner and install a "Sirius" tuner to avoid paying the extra fees to keep my current channels. The problem is that none of these tuners indicate that they are an "XM" or a "Sirius" tuner. The only way to tell is my the radio ID. This is a warning to all current Sirius subscribers. If you want to keep channels like Howard Stern, you will have to pay an extra $35 a year to do so.
Pros:
Easy to install Works well
Cons:
This is an XM tuner... not Sirius

A Cinch to Install

Written By Giblet354, Bixby, OK on Saturday, March 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to install and counting the antenna connection, only two wires to worry about (the antenna connection and the receiver connector).
Pros:
Easy installation and very small footprint.
Cons:
If you are retrofitting to an existing XM antenna and it has the old style FAKRA connector, the tuner module has a recessed new style coax connector. If you want to use your existing antenna, you'll need to purchase an adapter.

SiriusXM V200

Written By Scott, Dothan AL. on Friday, March 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The tuner was very easy to hook up. It's pretty much idiot proof. As soon as I plugged it into my Jensen radio all the features came up on the screen and it was very easy to operate. The only bad part of the entire installation was when I called to get it activated SiriusXM told me there was not a 3 month free listening program that was written in the detailed when I bought the tuner. I had to give the product 3 stars because someone dropped the ball and I'm the one who had to pay for it.
Pros:
Very easy installation and easy to understand instructions.
Cons:
When I bought the tuner it was supposed to come with 3 month free activation, but it did not. I had to pay to listen instead of being able to see what package I wanted. I did not get the free 3 month activation. If I wanted to listen I had to pay immediately.
Crutchfield response on Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The promotion required that in order to get the 3 months of free service, you first have to sign up for a minimum of 6 months of paid service. Since this was a promo from SiriusXM, unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to change that. SiriusXM subscribers can always change programming packages when the current subscription expires.

Excellent

Written By ScottD, Madison, WI on Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The other reviews don't lie. This is a simple plug and play operation. I pulled out my Pioneer X9500BHS (also bought from Crutchfield) and plugged the Sirius cable in. Then I just ran the antenna to my dash (didn't want to deal with outside routing) and put it back together after testing that it worked. Simple activation of my account and it was up and running. Even on the dash I get 2/3 or 3/3 bars all the time. Under an hour for installation and that's taking time.
Pros:
- Dead simple install - Great reception even on dash - Relatively low price
Cons:
- None so far.

Contact Sirius/XM about this module first!!

Written By Scott S., Palestine, TX on Sunday, March 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After 11 months of use, it started losing signal and dropping connection. Could get it back with refresh, but if I shut off the vehicle, I lost everything again. Local installer tested and said it was the head unit. Replaced head unit and the same thing happened again. I called Crutchfield and they referred me to Sirius/XM who told me that there is a known technical issue with this module. They will be replacing it for me this week. Make sure if you buy one, that you speak to SIRIUS/XM before you do in order to avoid buying a new head unit. I now have a spare pioneer deck to put in my son's car!
Pros:
Worked great
Cons:
Stopped working

Sirius V Tuner

Written By Ian, Clay City, KY on Wednesday, March 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought the earlier version of this years ago for my Sirius experience. Had to run 5 different cables to get it working. Real hassle. The new updates tuner was 3 wires, the antenna and the plug for the back of the radio. It is much smaller than it's predecessor and fit right behind the radio. Still great quality and still great service in a smaller package. Would recommend to anyone!
Pros:
Smaller, less wires than previous Sirius tuners, easy to use and easy to install.
Cons:
Nothing

The SIRIUS adapter was one feature on my new Sony radio that went easily and worked the first time. Following a tip I found online I was able to use the existing SIRIUS antenna and dispense with running yet another wire.
Pros:
Works the first time.

None

Written By scott, nevada on Sunday, March 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Plugged in the back of an awesome Kenwood deck. Install is easy, dealing with the several folks at sirius was the problem. Use the online activation. I like to deal with people so I made the mistake of calling and talking to them. Never talk to them! They weren't knowledgeable about their products, packages or anything that had to do with sirius. Its like they grabbed people of the street and told them to figure it out as they go.
Pros:
I like all the channels and since I off road in some desolate places my jeep is the one with tunes!
Cons:
The staff at Sirius.

Its alright , the company SIRIUSly needs to re-evaluate its plan pricing, there are many other radio types for less with better features
Pros:
Has some of the newer music and many other stations... Old school, hip hop, sports, comedy
Cons:
