Our take on the Posi-Products™ Satellite Radio Connectors

by Buck Pomerantz
Posi-Products

Posi-Products connectors help make your electrical connections fast, easy, and reliable with no crimping, soldering, or messy tape. Just strip your stranded wires, insert them in the caps, and then hand tighten the two caps together — the wire ends get locked between opposing cone shapes to create a water-, dirt-, vibration-, and heat-proof housing. You get a strong, low-resistance electrical connection, and you can reuse the connectors, too.

The Mobile Electronics Series Connector Kits come with various assortments of special Posi-Lock® and Posi-Tap™ connectors with gold-plated contacts to integrate your aftermarket equipment into your vehicle's electrical system. Experienced installers have selected the contents of each kit carefully, so you can be sure you'll have all the right connectors necessary to get the job done.

This Satellite Radio Connector Kit comes with 2 Posi-Tap tap connectors to hook your satellite radio's power to your vehicle's wiring. Warranty: 30 days.

Features

Overview: This Satellite Radio Kit comes with 2 Posi-Tap tap connectors so you can power your satellite radio from your head unit's wiring harness. Posi-Tap connectors allow you to tap into wires without cutting or stripping them. Each connector has a tapered design and a threaded cap on each end. Just insert wire to be tapped into the large cap and hand tighten into the barrel. The conductor point pierces the tapped wire without compromising its conductive integrity. Insert the stripped speaker wire through the small cap, then tighten. An internal conductor runs the length of the Posi-Tap, giving you a solid electrical connection. The Posi-Tap connectors are vibration proof, fully insulated, and reusable.

Good product but be careful

Written By T, New Hampshire on Friday, January 11, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Good product, works like it says. It provides a rock solid, no cut splice. The only problem is my XM uses 5v not 12v like the battery provides. There's a circuit board in the power adapter that ramps down the 12v current from the battery into 5v for the XM radio. If I followed the instructions included in the kit and just connected the wires from the power adapter straight to a 12v switched source and a ground it would have fried my radio the first time I turned it on. I called Crutchfield's technical line and was walked through other options. I did keep the connectors because they do work well, you just need to be careful before connecting an XM satellite radio.
