Our take on the SIRIUS Stiletto 2 Car Kit

by Matt Holliday

You'll need this car kit to play the Stiletto 2 satellite radio through your car stereo. It includes a handy mounting cradle with ten buttons for saving preset channels, plus a Jump button that lets you skip directly to a channel you've programmed at any time.

You can connect the kit's cradle directly to your car stereo's auxiliary input with a set of patch cables (sold separately). If your stereo has no auxiliary input, the built-in wireless FM transmitter lets you play the Stiletto over any FM car stereo. To improve wireless reception, this kit includes an FM Extender cable, which attaches to the inside glass surface closest to your vehicle's antenna.

The kit also comes with a roof-mount antenna and a car power adapter. The Stiletto 2 is sold separately.

Features

Overview: The SIRIUS SLV2 car kit is designed to provide operation of your Stiletto 2 in your vehicle. You can choose to install the SLV2 wireless or with a direct connection to hear your Stiletto 2 through your car's speaker system. The vehicle kit also includes a vent or dash mount to provide flexibility in your installation and placement of your Stiletto 2. 

SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS Satellite Radio features more than 120 channels of original programming beamed coast-to-coast, including commercial-free, digital-quality music, and news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming. You will need a subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio in addition to the compatible tuner.

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

Compatibility: The SLV2 vehicle kit will work with the SIRIUS Stiletto 2 (SL2PK1).

Connection: There are two primary ways to connect your Stiletto 2 to your vehicle radio.

Wireless Connection: The Stiletto 2 contains an FM transmitter which sends audio from your Stiletto 2 to your vehicle's radio over an FM frequency.
Direct Connection:
Direct connection provides better audio performance than a wireless connection. There are several ways to directly connect your Stiletto 2 to your car's audio system.

Wired Audio Connection: Using the line output on the car dock you can connect your Stiletto 2 to the Line IN or AUX IN on your car's in dash player if it features one. (optional minijack cable needed)
Cassette Adapter:
If you still have a cassette player in your car you can use a optional cassette adapter. The cassette adapter plugs into the line output and then the cassette inserts into your tape deck for playback.
FM Direct Adapter:
If your radio does not contain and AUX or Line In you can use the optional FM Direct Adapter to go from the FM out of the car dock to the antenna in of your car's receiver.

Antenna: The low-profile Sirius antenna has a powerful magnetic base that allows you to mount the antenna on the roof or trunk lid of your vehicle. The antenna needs to be positioned in such a way that it will be free of mechanical and line-of-sight obstructions. 

FM Extender Antenna: The FM Extender Antenna is provided to maximize the audio quality of your Sirius radio when using the built-in FM transmitter in your Sirius tuner to transmit the audio to your vehicle's FM radio. The FM Extender Antenna should be placed inside the vehicle in close proximity to the your vehicle's factory FM antenna. The FM Extender Antenna has permanent adhesive mounts for installing it along your vehicle's window. The Antenna portion measures 18" long and utilizes an attached 18.5' cord to route the antenna through your vehicle. The cord has a right angle minijack connector on the end of it that plugs into the FM-Out on back of the car docking station.

Important Note from Crutchfield: Current FCC rules limit the transmission strength of wireless FM transmitters to a point where transmission needs to take place very near your FM antenna. Sirius includes extra wiring in order to address this issue, but Crutchfield strongly encourages customers to use an auxiliary input, wired FM modulator, or cassette adapter to ensure satisfaction with the performance and cosmetics of this satellite radio.

Cigarette Lighter Adapter: The vehicle kit comes with a cigarette lighter adapter to supply power to the dock and your Stiletto 2. The car dock cannot be powered directly from a vehicle's 12 VDC power system. It must be powered using the included cigarette lighter adapter only. Connecting the vehicle dock directly to the vehicle's 12 VDC power system may result in damage to the vehicle dock and/or your Stiletto 2.

Mounting Methods: The vehicle kit offers the following three mounting methods.

  • Dash or Console Mounting Bracket (supplied): The dash/console mounting bracket has an adjustable arm so you are able to position your Stiletto 2 at various angles. The Stiletto 2 mounts to the bracket with 4 supplied machine screws. The base of the unit has a self-adhesive backing so it will stick securely to your dash or console.
  • Vent Mount (supplied): The vent mount is designed to clip onto your dash vents using the supplied vent clips and vent arm. The bracket attaches to the Stiletto 2 using the four supplied machine screws.
  • Pro-Fit Brackets (optional): The car kit can be used with many of the Pro-Fit Vehicle-Specific Mounts (VSMs) to provide a custom mount for your vehicle. The dock can be mounted directly to the Pro-Fit Legend series Vehicle-Specific Mounts (VSMs). The cradle is also compatible with the regular Pro.Fit International VSM series. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to see which VSMs are compatible with your vehicle.

Necessity for Car

Written By Ryan, Phoenix, AZ on Tuesday, September 23, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works good. Did not use the mounts that this kit came with. Used the SIR-PVK1 Installation Kit. I am taking 1 star away because the remote is somewhat flaky. Sometimes it doesn't do anything when you hit the buttons on remote or you have to press them harder than normal. Occasionally, this will preset a new station instead of changing to the preset. I have two of these and both remotes do the same thing...

Sirius Stiletto 2 Car Kit

Written By James, Memphis TN on Wednesday, September 10, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very Good product and value, works extremely well, the remote is a very
useful accesory, a must for in car use of your Stiletto 2 in car. Many
mounting options, the only hangup is routing the magnet antenna, and it
holds so well it is hard to remove.
