Kenwood SiriusConnect™ Adapter
Model CA-SR20V for Kenwood multimedia receivers with KAB Bus (subscription sold separately by SiriusXM)
Our take on the Kenwood SiriusConnect™ Adapter by Crutchfield's Zak Billmeier
The Kenwood SiriusConnect CA-SR20V adapter lets you control a SIRIUS satellite radio with select Kenwood multimedia receivers. This adapter works with newer Kenwood stereos that use the KAB Bus system, letting you control either of the following:
The CA-SR20V adapter sends song text to the Kenwood stereo's display, and lets you browse SIRIUS channels by using your Kenwood stereo's controls. The adapter powers your satellite radio so you won't have to worry about your radio's battery running out. 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.
Having this quality Kenwood cable available at Crutchfield along with the SIRIUS tuner, made the installation easy as pie. I was enjoying the 50's music in no time.

Overview: The Kenwood CA-SR20V KAB/SiriusConnect adapter cable lets you control your Sirius universal tuner or plug-and-play tuner (tuners sold separately) from your 2008-2011 Satellite Ready Kenwood multimedia receiver which features a KAB port. In addition to the CA-SR20V adapter cable, you will need a Satellite Ready Kenwood KAB multimedia receiver, a SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner (SC-C1) or a Sirius plug-and-play device with a SiriusConnect Vehicle Kit (item number 607SCVDOC1) along with a subscription to SIRIUS Satellite Radio.
Compatibility: The CA-SR20V is compatible with Satellite Radio Ready 2008-2011 Kenwood multimedia receivers which feature a KAB port and requires an optional SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner (part SC-C1, not longer available) or SiriusConnect Vehicle Dock (item number 607SCVDOC1) and a Sirius portable plug-and-play tuner. The following Satellite Radio Ready Kenwood KAB multimedia receivers are compatible with the CA-SR20V.

Connections: The 7.5" CA-SR20V adapter cable features a proprietary Kenwood KAB plug on one end which plugs into the back of your compatible 2008-up Kenwood multimedia receiver's rear-panel KAB port and a proprietary 8-pin SiriusConnect plug on other end which connects to the optional SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner (SC-C1) or SiriusConnect Plug-and-Play Vehicle Kit (607SCVDOC1).

Yes it will, its also nice to only have one device to work with on the dash. [ SAMUEL Mar 21, 2015 ]
yes [ SEAN P Mar 21, 2015 ]
I do not think this will work. You will need a xmsxs300/1 [ JUSTIN Mar 16, 2015 ]
It should. The whole point of connecting the dock to the head unit is to be able to control the device (sirius radio) from the head unit. Verify that your head unit can control the device. [ James Jan 09, 2014 ]
