Re: Static / Crackle.....hmmmmm

It must be Sirius....I recorded the static in case it doesn't clear up by the time I take it to the dealer for the first oil change and I can't get it to replicated the issue then.

So far, I have only heard the static on Sirius and seems to have been only after the channel lineup change.

Re: Static / Crackle.....hmmmmm

fkloster - I too have noticed it more on the Sirius Hip Hop stations...44, 45, 46, 47.... It has to be Sirius since that is exactly the sound I am hearing. I didn't have that before the stations changed... What about you, did you notice if before the stations changed???

Re: Static / Crackle.....hmmmmm

I have the same problem with my summit with the 730RHR... took delivery 3 weeks ago and noticed the crackle while listening to Stern and some music channels.

I actually didn't have enough chance to play around with music before change. I try turning other channels up LOUD and cant get them to crackle like hip hop. So wierd... for a while i thought it was the heavy base hits that brought about crackling... but i can here it on some lower volume too

Re: Static / Crackle.....hmmmmm

Somebody who experiences crackle should find a non-Chrysler Sirius radio and listen to the same channel on both units at once. I suspect you will hear the crackle on both, in which case there's nothing you can do but complain to Sirius.

Re: Static / Crackle.....hmmmmm

Haven't heard any crackling in about a week. Must have been something on Sirius' end of things...that is now resolved. Glad it is gone.

Anyone still experiencing crackling on Sirius channels???

Mine also. 44,45,46,47 are fine on wife's X6, seems Jeep related. I wonder if iPhone interferes sometimes, I've noticed if an iPhone 4 is near speakers (computer, clock radios, etc) sometimes there is interference.

Re: Static / Crackle.....hmmmmm

Haven't heard any Sirius crackling so the issue musta got resolved by Sirius. Was thinking about doing the Shark Fin thingy but wasn't gonna do it if there was static since I didn't want the dealer to blame it on that...
