Anyone done this?

I bought an XM sattelite radio for my '02 CC. Its a Delphi. Right now I have it runing on a radion freq but they claim they have better quality by direct wiring them. Has anyone done this in there SD? I have the 6 Disc in dash radio.
Thanks. Jon

My Sirius unit in my FedEx truck has a 2.5mm jack in the back to connect to the same on a stereo, or to a Y with RCA's. I don't think there's any way to do it with a stock radio. I don't really notice any difrence between it with the FM transmitter and the one in my pickup that's connected directly to the head unit.

If you have RCA connections on the satellite, you need to go to wal-mart and by the "speaker level conversion kit". It is a little black box that connects to regular speaker wires to make them RCA style. I used them on my truck for a long time to use an amp with the stock radio. I just spliced them inline with the OE speaker wires with scotch type connectors that way I didn't have to lose my factory speaker setup. Other that that, my truck also had the CD/Tape style radio so my satellite had a tape deck adapter like the old school portable CD player adapters. You'll have to see what you'll need to connect your satellite to the radio and go from there. Let me know I'll help, I used to do car stereo installs.

There IS a difference in the 2, although on the stock radio you would be hard pressed to tell. The FM modulator has a limited freq. width and diminishes the freq. response from the Delphi unit. The best way to do it, is an aftermarket unit with a direct component input, such as an IP BUS like Pioneer uses, Keenwood uses something similar.
