Re: Siruis sounds like poop!!

how is your satellite radio installed? is it in the stock radio or is it an external/aftermarket satellite radio?

That is not really true. "Channel quality is two flavors, stereo music channels at 39 kbps and mono talk channels at 16 kbps using proprietary compression."

I noticed the same with my Sat Radio. Mine is connected to the head unit via the aux input. The quality was bad once I hooked up my basslink. I noticed there was an audio level setting on the Sat Radio menu that I just had to turn up. Sounds great now. HTH

on the stock radio, no. If he's going into the aux input for audio he's got an aftermarket sat radio.

If yours is built in, theres not a whole lot you can do. Try to do a hardreset on it? Maybe call sirius see if they can refresh the signal.

Other than that, youre basically stuck.

no, the level setting is on the XM radio just run through the menu and see if yours has it too.. mine is a basic no frills model so I'm certain better sat radios have more capability possibly even and EQ?

correct, I have an aftermarket stereo tuner with SAT but I only interface my head unit with the AUX run from a separate sat radio.. pic
