Features

Overview: The Terk XMDKEN100 is a Smart Digital Adapter which allows you to connect the Terk XMDirect Universal XM Satellite Radio tuner (Item 209XMD1000, sold separately) to a compatible, satellite-ready Kenwood car stereo receiver.

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

Installation Note: Because of cable lengths, the XMDKEN100 should be installed behind the dash within 3 feet of the XMD1000 tuner.

Inputs and Outputs: The XMDKEN100 includes 3 connecting cables:

  • To Kenwood Head Unit:
    • 13 Pin DIN: A 36" Cable enables the receiver to control the XM Tuner and carries the audio signal
  • To XMD1000 Tuner:
    • Audio Cable: A 36" Stereo RCA cable carries audio from the satellite tuner
    • Control: A 36" P13 (8-pin DIN) cable carries control commands to the tuner from the Kenwood receiver

Important Compatibility Note: The adapter manual and packaging includes a list of compatible Kenwood receivers. As new models are introduced, this list will change accordingly:

CD Changer Integration: If the XMD1000 XMDirect Satellite Tuner and XMDKEN1000 Smart Digital Adapter are installed a CD changer cannot be added. This adapter is not compatible with the Kenwood two CD changer switch (item 113KCAS210), so a changer and this adapter cannot be connected using the changer switch.
