I've had Sirius satellite radio in my truck for about a year now. I've always used the built in FM transmitter to play it over my radio, and that has worked well. There has always been a certain amount of static and feedback with it and I was wondering it there is a way I can add an adapter to my stereo to give me another input while keeping the CD player. Anyone know of an adapter or have any other ideas?
Even though the Delphi Ski-Fi XM receiver I have will broadcast wireless FM, I found that plugging this directly in-line with the antenna gave me better reception. I also use it for my MP3 player, and I'm not disappointed with the quality at all. Don't hate me, I drive an Expedition (but I still love Caddys!).
But maybe some of the Escalade gurus have a solution we don't know about yet. Certainly a direct-connect into the stock head unit would be the best thing going.
Thanks, I'll look into that. The best of both worlds for me would be an adapter that gave me RCA inputs, that way I could switch between my ipod and satellite. The itrip doesn't transmit and static, so for now that is fine.
If You Dont Have Xm It Will Still Show Up Under Aux Button, And You Won't Loose Your Disc Player.
Hmmm I don't have an AUX button on my radio, just FM/AM/Tape/Changer. And IIRC, the 2002 doesn't have the class-2 bus on the radio.
What I should also say is that I'm looking to keep my Xact sirius radio, I'm just looking for a way to add an additional input to my radio, preferably RCA jacks so that I can connect the satellite radio or my ipod.
try this place.. http://www.logjamelectronics.com/logjam/piegm9aux.html they have a connector for your year of vehicle. I think that you might loose your cd changer if you use an auxiliary port like this but your ipod will hold all 6 of your cds in the changer easily. You also may combine the aux input that they have for your radio with a aux 3 input and it will allow you to switch back and forth between ipod and changer. Sorry... Hope this at least helps!
E-mailed PAC and they got back to me. For the 2002 Escalade you need the AAI-GM9 interface. It adds two auxiliary interfaces to the radio. About $42 on eBay. I just ordered mine, will report back on an install.
