system. You can choose from 10 output levels.

Car Kit Features
Overview: The SP-C1 car kit
includes everything you need to install the SIRIUS Sportster tuner into your
vehicle. The kit contains the docking cradle, mounting bracket, DC power supply
(cigarette lighter), roof-mount antenna, and mounting hardware. The SIRIUS tuner
mounts firmly in the cradle, where antenna, power and signal connections are
made. The cradle's base is designed to mount securely to your dash, console, or
other flat surface (the surface doesn't need to be horizontal).
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. The
antenna' s dimensions are: W=2.031", H=0.726", D=2.652" (9.1285" including
"tail"), Cable Length=20.5'.
Note: The attached
micro cable has a single SMB connector, which plugs into the cradle.
Cradle: The SP-R1 tuner slides
into the docking cradle and is locked into place. The cradle can be bolted to
the mounting base on the bottom or the back. On the back of the cradle are
inputs for the antenna and DC power supply, plus a line output (minijack) and an FM transmission antenna output (sub-minijack).
Using the supplied base with attached
adhesive pad, the cradle can be mounted to any flat surface in your vehicle. The
base has three adjustment points which enables swiveling the tuner for optimum
viewing. Depending on adjustment, the base will add various amounts to the
dimensions. The minimum is 2.45" added to the depth. The base can also be
mounted using the included 1/2 inch screws instead of the adhesive pad.
Optional Pro-Fit Brackets: The
SP-C1 car kit can be used with many of the Pro-Fit Vehicle-Specific Mounts
(VSMs) to provide a custom mount for your vehicle. Please check the Crutchfield
Vehicle Selector for compatibility with your vehicle.
