Looking for a In-Dash SIRIUS for you car? Have you been told it isn’t available?

 Some cars will not be able to have In-Dash SIRIUS available, so I am going to guide you through and find you a setup perfect for you!

-This is a Vehicle Specific Mount. It mounts your SIRIUS radio in a predetermined place and it becomes a hard mounted and stable bolt platform for your SIRIUS radio mount. It will give you a clean look and adds a factory installed look when paired with the the power and audio hard-wire kits below.

-This is a SIRIUS Power Hardwire Kit. This will be installed to a 12v power-line in your vehicle. This will add to the factory look and greatly minimize the amount of cables that can be seen.

Now the next section it depends on your car.

Question #1-Do you have an AUX-In plug?

An AUX-In plug looks like this:

 

Answer #1-IF YOU HAVE THIS, GREAT!  You can buy any SIRIUS Radio and feel confident that you will get the best audio sound quality. All you need is a SIRIUS Radio ,Vehicle Specific Mount , Power Hard-Wire Kit and An Aux-In Cable. The Aux-In Cable will plug from this port on your car stereo and then into the AUDIO OUT on the SIRIUS Dock.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS PLUG ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR STEREO THEN SEE BELOW.

We have three options:

A Cassette Audio Adapter for cars that have a cassette deck. This may (for some) be the best solution. If you have that cassette deck in your car, then you simply plug this into the cassette and the AUDIO OUT of the SIRIUS Radio Dock.

An FM Direct Adapter.  This is a device that will eliminate static from your SIRIUS Setup. This plugs into the back of your car stereo(in the am/FM antenna port) and then a long cable routes and plugs into the FM OUT of the SIRIUS Radio dock.  This is a very cost/effective solution for most any vehicle. NOTE: some cars may need FM antenna adapters found HERE

An Auxiliary Input Device. This will give you CD quality sound from your SIRIUS Radio. All you have to do is plug this into the CD Changer Port or Sat port on the back of the Car stereo head-unit. This will run up to the SIRIUS Radio car dock and plug into the AUDIO OUT port on the SIRIUS Dock. This is the most effective way to get audio into your car.

So If you have a car that does not have a In-Dash SIRIUS Unit available Please Email me and I can help you setup something that looks great and gives you that SIRIUS Radio you desire. EMAIL US   Be sure to include your make model and Year!

SIRIUS Starmate 3 Home Antenna

SIRIUS Starmate 3 Home Antenna

All SIRIUS Starmates use the same Home antenna. The connections are universal for the antenna.

There are a couple different types of SIRIUS Starmate 3 Home Antenna on the market so I will go into each one.

These antennas will work for the SIRIUS Starmate 3  ST3/ST3R

SIRIUS HOME PNP ANTENNA-This is the standard antenna that comes with most SIRIUS home kits and Boomboxes. These work quite well when placed in the proper direction to receive SIRIUS signal(always face your home antenna towards Minnesota, no matter when you live in the country, this is the optimal direction).This antenna can be placed outside, but for optimal outdoor reception, the SIRIUS Outdoor Home Antenna would be best.

SIRIUS Outdoor Home Antenna- This is the industry standard outdoor antenna. Designed to weather the elements and pull in the SIRIUS signal, this antenna is used by many for rooftop or pole mounted installations.

Pro-500Technologies Pro-500-This is an Outdoor Home antenna built for SIRIUS Satellite Radio. This antenna pulls in the signal with better gain(12dBi, which is 5dBi more than standard antennas) .

Pixel Technologies Pro-600-This is the updated version of the Pro-500. It only has about 8.5dBi, but this antenna can stream SIRIUS and XM at the SAME TIME! So if you have both a SIRIUS and XM radio this is a great antenna.

If you are looking for more options, or maybe a SIRIUS Antenna Extension cable, we have a variety of different solutions for any kind of situation. From simple to custom we can help, give us a call 773-772-4340.

Bargain deals from TSS-Radio

Everyone knows that people are going to be looking for the value this holiday season. I want to help everyone find the bargain deals here at TSS-Radio. Be on the look out for REBATES on receivers as well and be sure to read all about them HERE

Bargain Receivers:

1.) Starmate 4- this reciever may look slightly expensive (around $109.99), but this radio is an investment in quality. I have seen virutally no returns back on the Starmate 4 in my time here at TSS-Radio. Many people become attached to the bright vibrant screen and full text display right out of the box. So as it may look expensive, you are sure to get your money’s worth out of it and more. That is why I ranked it #1 in bargain receivers.

2.) My next bargain receiver is a must give-gift, the Stratus 4. This entry-level SIRIUS radio has all the basic features and no frills, but what it lacks in frills in makes up in value(around $49.99).  The Stratus 4 makes an excellent gift to anyone who has even a remote interest in SIRIUS Satellite Radio. I give this receiver high marks in value and dependability, but a lower rating in features and display.

Bargain Packages:

1.) For my first bargain package I choose the Sportster 4 Home and Car Kit Package. Comes complete with everthing you need to listen SIRIUS in your home or car. This is an incredible value package. You get a Receiver, Car Kit, and Home kit for around $129.99. Great value paired with a reliably receiver makes this my top bargain package.

 

2.) The next bargain package I have up is the Stratus 5 with Soloist Sound Dock. This package give you great value( around $129.99) , a great receiver, and a Soloist Sound Dock that provide superior sound quality while maximizing space. This kit is great for a gift, because once someone receives this they will have nothing stopping them from enjoying Live Satellite Radio anywhere in their home or car.

Bargain Home Tuners:

If you have a home theater setup and don’t want to break the bank on adding SIRIUS Satellite Radio here are a few suggestions.

1.) SIRIUS Conductor Home System- this two piece combo lands a 1-2 punch with me.  This is a unique SIRIUS tuner that allows any speaker system with audio inputs to be turned into a SIRIUS machine of commercial-free Music splendor. I am passionate about this system for it has high value and ease of daily use. The remote which you hold in your hand controls the SIRIUS tuner from all the way across the room, so you do not even have to get up to change the channel or volume. The remote can also be programmed to control a TV, DVD Player or other A/V devices.  I give this highest marks for value/price. Best bang for your buck here.

Bargain Everything!

Check out our Open Box section for year-round deals and saving. These items are tested and held to the same standards as new products. Most have just been opened so we could take photos of them for our website, and now we can’t sell them as new so we pass the savings on through our Open Box section.
