Engine noise through your auxiliary input?

pie1_mediumRecently, we have had people calling in and telling us that they have engine noise when they are listening to their plug and play satellite radio inside their car. Every time they accelerate they can hear an engine noise or a “wine” through their speakers. Well, we have found a solution. Here’s the scenario:

Problem: When the listener accelerates down the road they can hear an increase in engine noise through their speakers.

Solution: We discussed this with a professional installer that used the PIE in-line 12 amp noise filter and it solved their problem. What they did was go behind the cigarette lighter and put the power filter on the live wire running to the cigarette lighter. This solved the issue immediately.

One way to prove this theory to is to plug in a regular MP3 player into the auxiliary jack on the radio and drive around. Even better, if you have a stiletto you can listen to recorded content through the aux input as well. You should hear no engine wine noise at all. If you do, then this is a completely separate issue. Most engine noise issues come from the fact that the unit is drawing off of the vehicles power through the cigarette lighter, or in rare cases, from a vehicle power hardwire kit. Both scenarios can be solved by using this PIE noise filter.

You do not have to use the static filled FM transmitter anymore or the cigarette lighter adapter, all you need is………..

XM5

The XM5 will allow you to connect your 5v Sirius Satellite Radio and hardwire the audio into your car stereo. Basically plug something into your car stereo and you will get a clean looking setup and have a quality audio sound with no static at all!

If you are not familiar with Aux Input devices they work like this:

Be sure to check the compatibility list first to make sure your car is capable of using these units or just shoot us an email and I can help.

Pull the car stereo out, this is easier on some cars and harder on others. I can help you do this via email or over the phone.

Plug the XM5 into the Car stereo, some cars may need a power source to wired into a 12v line, which again I can help you do that as well.

Replace the car stereo and run the power and audio cable to the SIRIUS Radio dock and Whammy! You’re done.

This works on all 5v Sirius Radios

Most installs only take 1-1 1/2 hours of time and few tools.
