SiriusConnect™ Car-only Tuner
Add Sirius satellite radio to your car stereo (Model SC-C1)
Our take on the SiriusConnect™ Car-only Tuner by Crutchfield's Matt Holliday
Note: You'll need an adapter to connect this to your car stereo — see "Accessories" or call us at 1-888-955-6000 to find the right adapter for your stereo.
The SiriusConnect SC-C1 universal tuner lets you receive Sirius Satellite Radio in your vehicle. You'll see channel, song, and artist information on your stereo's display, and you can save your favorite Sirius channels as presets. You'll also need to add the SiriusConnect adapter that's compatible with your factory or aftermarket stereo to control all of the tuner's functions.
The package includes a roof-mount antenna that attaches to your vehicle with its powerful magnetic base. The included removable metal mounting plate makes it easy to install the SC-C1 out of sight.
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.

Overview: The SIRIUS SC-C1 SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle tuner allows you to add SIRIUS Radio to a wide variety of aftermarket & OEM radios when combined with a SiriusConnect adapter (sold separately) to match your application.
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 SC-C1 SiriusConnect Tuner is designed to work with many Sirius-Ready or Sat-Radio Ready head-units. Some head-units will require the use of a SiriusConnect Interface or adapter cable (sold separately). The SC-C1 can also be integrated in select factory audio systems.
Connection: The SC-C1 uses a 5' SiriusConnect interface 8-pin DIN-cable that integrates power, audio and control through a single connection.
Mounting: The SC-C1 comes supplied with a removable metal mounting plate with three pre-drilled holes on either side and four self-tapping mounting screws to secure the device to a solid, flat surface. The mounting plate can be removed allowing the unit to be mounted directly to a smooth, flat, clean surface using either double stick tape, Velcro or other adhesive material (not supplied).
SIRIUS Antenna: The compact SIRIUS antenna has a powerful magnetic base that allows you to mount the antenna on the roof or trunk lid of your vehicle. The antenna needs to be positioned in such a way that it will be free of mechanical and line-of-sight obstructions. The attached antenna cable is 21' long. The antenna measures 1.605" wide x 0.505" tall x 2.005" deep.
