The KS-SRA100 adapter lets you control a SIRIUS satellite radio with your JVC stereo. This adapter works with newer JVC stereos equipped with a CD changer connection, letting you control either of the following:

  • the SC-C1 SiriusConnect universal tuner;
  • a compatible SIRIUS portable radio, like the Sportster, Starmate, Stratus, or Stiletto, together with a SiriusConnect vehicle kit.

The KS-SRA100 adapter sends song text to the JVC stereo's display, and lets you browse SIRIUS channels by using your JVC stereo's controls. The adapter powers your satellite radio and includes a pass-through connection, so you can add another piece of JVC gear to your car stereo system. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: A subscription to SIRIUS is also required. Satellite radio service is available only within the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service is available in Alaska.

Had this, along with Sirius tuner installed yesterday for our JVC Navigation/radio system in our motor home. Works as advertised! We can now hear SAT radio as we travel on down the road! Glad, too, for the SIRIUS connection and NOT XM, as was previously.

You will also need a subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio.

Note: The KS-SRA100 Sirius Satellite Radio Interface is not a stand alone unit. You must purchase a SC-SC1 SiriusConnect Vehicle Tuner or SiriusConnect Vehicle Dock with a portable Plug&Play Sirius Tuner to plug into your compatible JVC headunit along with a subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio.

SIRIUS Satellite Radio: SIRIUS Satellite Radio features more than 120 streams of original programming beamed coast-to-coast, including 65 streams of commercial-free, digital-quality music, and news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming.

Note: Satellite radio service is available only within the continental United States. Service is not available in Alaska and Hawaii.

Compatibility: The KS-SRA100is compatible with all Sat-Radio Ready J-BUS JVC Head-units and requires an optional SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner (item 607SCC1) or SiriusConnect Vehicle Dock (not yet released) and portable Plug&Play Sirius Tuner. The following 2007-2008 J-BUS JVC headunits are compatible.

  • KW-AVX710, KWAVX810
  • KD-AHD39, KD-AR480
  • KD-AVX11, KD-AVX33, KD-AVX44

Functions: The KS-SRA100 adapter sends song text to your JVC stereo's display, and lets you browse SIRIUS channels using your radio's controls.

Mounting: The hide-away interface features built-in flanges and comes with four self-tapping screws to secure the unit to a flat surface of your vehicle. The supplied J-BUS cable which plugs into the KS-SRA100 interface and the back of your compatible JVC headunit is 8' long, so keep that in mind when selecting a location for the interface module.

Just as a follow-up, this JVC tuner does NOT work with the new car stereos that are labeled Sirius/XM ready. I had to buy a new SiriusXM SXV200V1 Tuner in order to get it to work. However, the installation was quite easy with the new tuner and I love my new car stereo, the JVC Arsenal KD-AR959BS. [ Peter J  Jul 31, 2014 ]
I'm very sorry, I don't know. Dan [ DANIEL  Jun 30, 2014 ]
Joseph, thanks for the quick reply. Now I'm ready to pull the trigger. [ Peter J  Jun 29, 2014 ]
Yes [ JEAN P  Jun 29, 2014 ]
Yes, it connects right to it with no issues. [ JOSEPH  Jun 28, 2014 ]
