Steve K's 1999 Nissan Frontier

Alpine XM satellite radio installation

Items installed:

Why did you decide to put satellite radio in your car?
I love African music and XM's "Ngoma" plays African music 24/7.

Why did you choose these products?
I chose the Alpine head unit for overall build quality and sound quality. I prefer having a real volume knob too.

What was the most difficult part of the installation?
Nothing related to satellite radio was very difficult, but running heavier-gauge speaker wire from the amp to the door-mounted component sets was a pain.

What plans, if any, do you have for future upgrades?
My next head unit will have an easy-to-access auxiliary input for connecting an iPod.
