    Chris…another great video! However…I was hoping that you would have shoen how to hardwire this to the actual antenna. I have the fm adapter kit and the antenna booster, as shown in the begining. Living where I do it is still very staticy, hence I rarely use it in my car. There is a kit that allows you to hardwire it in, to really minimize all the static and having to switch stations. The local sound guys want big$ to do it..It cant be that hard, even on an 08 Chevy Uplander? Help, if you can

    Everything is mindless, if you already know how to do it. The easy part is knowing how everything needs to be hooked up – the hard part is dealing with all those little details that make the difference between a hack job and a pro-like installation. So thank you for this video, since I’ve never done anything like this before. Having a similar video for routing speaker wires throughout a car into the dash would also be great. The wires are the biggest obstacle to doing a nice job. And soldering.

    lol, he got in the car. Hey, thanks for the vid, I have to install one in my car and this made it seem easy.

  4. AJ Michelson Says:

    Just wanted to note that a more universal approach to connecting directly to a head unit, especially a stock one, or an after market one if it does not have an auxilary input is a direct connect fm interface, not an audio cable. A direct connecting fm interface still plays through the fm tuner but has the same sound quality as the direct audio cable, but does not need the head unit to have an aux in. The only additional items you may need are antenna adapters, but not all vehicles need them. Have a great one guys, keep up the good work.

  5. AJ Michelson Says:

    Also, as the antenna is a coax cable, it is not recommended that you DO NOT put it through the trunk, seams, doors or windows, pretty much anywhere it could get pinched, if pinched, will render the antenna useless.

    i got one i like it alot but it cuts out all the time 1 tree in the way going down the road and it loses if they worked on that it would be great!

  10. danlublock Says:

    This is fine and dandy if you have a regular car like this, but if you have a SCION ur screwed. I hadda pay 80 bucks for Geek squad to install it. The little bastard left smugey finger prints all over my clean polished dash. Bastards!

  11. danlublock Says:

    Ps the stations sound like shit! They sound like they’re talking and singing in a locked closet, and a bit muffled. there go’s that unemployment check.

  12. utubin67 Says:

  13. strongbad73 Says:

    nice video! and for all who are complaining about reception and sound quality all i have to say is iv installed 3 myself in both of my cars and in my house which runs 4 radios off the one house unit. they all sound great and i never loose my signal unless im in a tunnel or under a drive thru. other then that iv not had ONE problem with either unit or the siganl/quality of sound in 5 years.

  14. testify221 Says:

    hey I was wondering, I am wanting to install my satellite radio into my car but I want to eliminate the cigarette power adapter.. is there anyways of doing this or do you have a video showing the process of this?? I have attempted it already and have had no luck was wondering if that extra black cylinder on the wire is a stepper for the power up or down or is it just a noise eliminator?? hope someone can help

    sweeeeeeeet thanks alot

  56. motorztv Says:

    @hatahurta20 You’re welcome! Thank you for watching!!

  57. motorztv Says:

    @speedfreakcl67 You can definitely hard-wire the system. We’ll do a video on how to do this at some point, since it’s a popular request… but you should also just try checking eBay to look for what you need to make the wiring easier.

  58. jbgiant2003 Says:

    @hatahurta: the black cylinder probably is the sureconnect, used to eliminate static and noise on your sat radio.

  59. ChuckE2009 Says:

    thats such a beautiful vehicle…

  60. BeyondBeautyInStyle Says:

  62. Dasmom68 Says:

  76. Christopher Burk Says:

    This is probably the worst way to install a satellite radio. The antenna wire routing can cause it to become damaged, and placement of the radio itself could be hazardous for someone driving and becoming distracted fumbling to change a channel. Have your satellite radio professionally installed; or if your factory head unit permits, purchase a direct interface. There is no drilling required for professional installation on a direct, fm modulated, or Aux interface.

    I currently have two Sirius radios with 2 lifetime subscriptions. So once they decide to phase out Sirius satellites, do have to run out and buy SiriusXM radios? and what the hell happens to my subscriptions?
