aweful reception on stereo

Recommended Posts

Hi all! The reception on my Sony Xplode stereo is terrible even when we are parked. Has anyone put any type of power antenna on their system?

Mine was the same way. I ended up dropping terresterial radio and using satelite radio. Many people do that or use iPods.

We use Pandora streamed from our cell phone. No commercials, and nonstop music.

unfortunately ,no ipod hook up. I don't want to buy a satellite radio either. The antenna is just a flimsy thin wire. Is there another type of antenna that will work?

Did you check to see if you have an aux input? You can just run a set of rca's from there that has the 3.5mm jack. Simple plug and play. Most head units now have them. The only time I have used the radio is when we are at marine stadium, pretty much in the middle of the city. Just to hear how bad traffic is going to be getting home :)

I hate to tell you, but the only way to get a better FM signal is to install a proper FM antenna which is about 11' long. That's going to look really ugly on a boat. You could try a window mount antenna like this http://www.amazon.com/Metra-Amplified-Window-Antenna-Stereo/dp/B006DRT7LM
