Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Inputs and Outputs
When used with a compatible Kenwood head unit,
this tuner allows you to receive
SIRIUS satellite radio programming in
your vehicle. In addition to this tuner and antenna, you must have a
subscription to SIRIUS Radio to receive SIRIUS digital satellite radio signals.
Note: Satellite radio
service is available only within the continental United States. Service
is not available in Alaska and Hawaii.
Compatibility: This tuner is compatible with select pre-2005 SIRIUS-ready Kenwood head units and all 2005 and newer SIRIUS-ready Kenwood head units. The tuner is not compatible with any KRC-series SIRIUS-ready cassette players. If a head unit carried by Crutchfield is compatible with this tuner, the tuner will be in the accessory list for that head unit.
SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS
Satellite Radio features more than 120 channels of original programming beamed
coast-to-coast, including 65 channels of commercial-free, digital-quality music,
and news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming.
CD Changer Pass-Thru:
The SIRIUS radio tuner uses the CD changer input on the Kenwood head unit. If
you also want to use a CD changer, there is a CD changer pass-through connection
on the SIRIUS radio tuner, so they can be daisy chained together.
SIRIUS Antenna: The 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.
