This package includes everything needed to control your dock-and-play SIRIUS Satellite Radio through your compatible Kenwood receiver. The SC-VDOC1 car dock holds your compatible portable SIRIUS radio, then connects to your Kenwood receiver with the included KCA-SR50 SIRIUS adapter. You'll see channel, song, and artist information on your stereo's display, and you can even save your favorite SIRIUS channels as presets. The adapter works with 2005-up satellite radio-ready Kenwood stereos.

The KCA-SR50 adapter does not have a pass-through connection. You'll need to purchase an adapter if you want to connect multiple Kenwood components (CD changer, iPod adapter, etc.) to your in-dash receiver.

You'll keep your SIRIUS dock-and-play radio's battery charged as you drive, and the package includes a roof-mount antenna that attaches to your vehicle with its powerful magnetic base.

Note: A subscription to SIRIUS is also required. 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.

Features

Overview: This package includes the SCVDOC1 SiriusConnect vehicle docking kit and the Kenwood KCA-SR50 Kenwood/SiriusConnect adapter cable; allowing you to integrate select Sirius Dock & Play or portable radios (not included) with select Kenwood satellite radio ready receivers. The SIRIUS tuner is then controlled by the Kenwood head unit.

Compatibility:

  • The SCVDOC1 supports the Sirius Stiletto, Sportster, Starmate, and Stratus radios that have the Sirius Universal Docking Connector. The current compatible Sirius Plug & Play tuners include: SL10-PK1, SL100-PK1, SL2-PK1, SP4-TK1, SP5-TK1, ST4-TK1 and SV4TK1.
  • The KCA-SR50 is compatible with select '05 and newer satellite radio ready Kenwood receivers. Check the accessory list for your receiver to confirm compatibility.

Sirius Radio Adapters: The SCVDOC1 comes supplied with four radio adapters which allow you to connect the various models of Sirius Plug & Play tuners mentioned above. The four adapters fit the following Sirius radios.

Radio Adapters Compatible Sirius Radios Dock Dimensions With Adapter (without Sirius radio)
Adapter 1 (pre-installed) Sportster 5, Starmate 3 & 4, Stratus & Stratus 4 Width = 2.105"
Height = 1.925"
Depth = 1.975"
Adapter 2 Sportster 3 & 4 Width = 4.235"
Height = 1.925"
Depth = 1.975"

Height = 1.925"
Depth = 1.975"
Adapter 4 Stiletto 2 Width = 2.105"

Connections:

  • SCVDOC1:
    • Sirius Dock Connector: This proprietary connector plugs into the bottom of your compatible Sirius Plug & Play radio.
    • SiriusConnect Interface Connector: The supplied 15' SiriusConnect interface cable plugs into this proprietary port (attached to the SCVDOC1 by a 19" pigtail). The other end of the cable plugs into the KCA-SR50 (included in this package).
    • Antenna Connector: The supplied Sirius Antenna connects to this SMB connector (attached to the SCVDOC1 by a 19" pigtail). The supplied Sirius antenna features an attached 21' cord and a magnetic base to mount the antenna on the outside of your vehicle.
  • KCA-SR50:
    • To Sirius Tuner: Use the cable included with the SCVDOC1 to connect the two units.
    • To Headunit: Use the included 8' DIN cable (13-pin round DIN-connector on both ends) to connect the KCA-SR50 to the CD-changer port on the rear chassis of your compatible Kenwood headunit.
      • Note: This device does not feature a pass-through port, which means you will need the Kenwood KCA-S220A Dual-Source Switching Unit (113KCAS220, sold separately) to add an additional external source device to your compatible Kenwood headunit.

Mounting: There are two mounting options available for mounting the SCVDOC1.

  • Mounting Screw: The SCVDOC1 can be surface mounted to a flat surface of your vehicle using the supplied mounting screws.
  • Mounting Adapter: The SCVDOC1 can also be mounted using the supplied pedestal mount which screws into the back of the SCVDOC1 and then mounts to a clean, flat surface of your vehicle via its adhesive backing. The mount will allow you to adjust the angle of the SCVDOC1, as well.

Worth it!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Out of all the "all inclusive" kits I've bought, this is truley all that! Tons of wire to install where you want to, all hardware, and options to mount here, there, anywhere. WORTH IT!!! Worked first time with no problems on install. Great directions!
