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.
Overview: The Terk AM/FM Tower is a
high-performance antenna that is ideal for anyone who wants superior short and long-range
radio reception. The Tower is designed to be an omnidirectional
or directional antenna. When placed vertically, it equally receives signals from
all different directions. When placed flat, the antenna becomes directional
and can be pointed at hard-to-get stations for better reception.
Built-in Amplifier: The Tower's built-in amplifier strengthens weak and
distant signals giving you greater control over the quality of your reception. The Tower uses active amplification to boost FM signals (+10 dB
minimum). AM gain, fixed at +15 dB, is achieved through a passive
(non-amplified) antenna element.
Air Coil Technology: The Air Coil technology isolates the AM and FM elements from each other, for
increased radio reception and minimized static and noise.
Installation: The antenna comes with everything necessary for installation, including a
non-skid, scratch-proof pedestal, and a universal slip-on connector and matching
adapter so you can use the Tower with almost every receiver, tuner or compact
