Your right in regards to the modulator/transmitter. I have a FM modulator in my car, and it works great! A long time ago I use a transmitter, sounded like crap because they are not that powerful. Think about it, 3 volts from a transmitter ~5 feet away, or 12 volts directly connected to the antenna. Take your pick!
