Compatibility Notes


Overview: The Terk XMDALP100 is a Smart Digital Adapter which allows you to control the Terk XMDirect Universal XM Satellite Radio tuner (item 209XMD1000, sold separately) with a compatible, XM Satellite-ready Alpine car stereo receiver. The adapter includes a cable with an Ai-NET input connection, so an Ai-NET device, such as a CD changer, can be used along with the XMD1000 XM Satellite Radio tuner.  

Note: Please check the compatibility list below to see if your Alpine receiver will work with this adapter.

Connections: The adapter is designed to be installed in-line between an XMD1000 XM tuner and a compatible Alpine receiver. Two cables are included to connect the XMDALP100 adapter to the XMD1000 tuner, and one cable is included to connect the XMDALP100 adapter to an Alpine receiver.

  • Adapter to Tuner Cables:
    • Audio Cable: A 40" stereo RCA cable carries satellite radio audio from the tuner to the adapter.
    • Control Cable: A 40" P13 (8-pin DIN) cable passes control commands from the adapter to the tuner.
  • Adapter to Alpine Receiver Cable:
    • One one end, this cable has a single male 16-pin Molex plug (plugs into the adapter), and the other end splits into two branches: a 20" branch has a right angle male Alpine Ai-NET connector (plugs into a compatible Alpine receiver), and a 13" branch is terminated with a female Alpine Ai-NET input connector, which allows you to connect another Alpine Ai-NET compatible component, such as a CD changer.

Installation Note: Because of cable lengths, the XMDALP100 should be installed behind the dash within 2-3 feet of the XMD1000 tuner.
