How to mount a Sirius Satellite Radio
There are several different ways to mount a Sirius Satellite Radio.There are as many standard mounting options as there are custom options for placing a satellite radio. It can be as simple as a suction cup on the windshield to a piece of ABS plastic cut to fit and placed in an open DIN.
Depending on you level of skill, you can mount Sirius Radios any way you see fit,but here are a few suggestions based on my experience:
- Suction Cup Mount-This is the simplest way to mount your radio. It’s pretty self-explanatory, push the cup onto the windshield in an area where it will give you the best view of your radio and more importantly the road. This is a beginner skill option.
- Vent Mount-This is an option if all others are not available. This is a slightly more difficult install, but does give a nice clean OEM look. A great feature to this option is that you can run the Sirius power adapter, Sirius Antenna, and audio cable from your Sirius Radio through the vents behind the dash, making this a cheap and effective mounting option. Also a beginner-moderate skill option.
- Vehicle Specific Mount-This is the best way to mount your Sirius Radio, hands down. These brackets are tested and made to fit your specific radio. The brackets are made to fit in a specific spot on your dash and cannot be moved elsewhere. They typically use a factory screw or bolt that is already in your car holding you dash in. You simply unscrew the screw or bolt, place the bracket, and then replace the screw and dash. It is a firm hold and fitted with a Swivel it can be angled to be viewed from different seats in the car. A moderate skill option.
