Features

Overview: The Terk XMDSON100 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 Sony car stereo receiver. Note: Please check the compatibility list below to see if your Sony receiver will work with this adapter.

Installation Note: Because of cable lengths, the XMDSON100 should be installed behind the dash within 2-3 feet of the XMD1000 tuner.

Inputs and Outputs: The XMDSON100 has 4 attached connecting cables:

  • To Sony Head Unit:
    • Audio Cable: A 33" stereo RCA cable feeds satellite radio audio into the receiver
    • UniLink: A 33" UniLink control cable enables the receiver to control the XM Tuner
  • To XMD1000 Tuner:
    • Audio Cable: A 24" stereo RCA cable carries satellite radio audio from the tuner
    • Control: A 24" P13 (8-pin DIN) cable plugs into the tuner for control commands from the receiver
