does the reference unit above come with an external FM port? Is that the bump on the top left?
I personally cut the adapter of my old stock unit and soldered that to the retractable cord. It works like a charm.
Thanks for being such a great support type of company! It feels great to know that my investment in streetdeck was the right decision by far!
So yeahhhhh.....your not gonna wanna be splicing and just sodering any old where when it comes to your antenna. You want to make sure the receiver and antenna have same characteristic impediance (you match loads) for optimal reception. Just splicing the wires adds an ungodly amount of complications. Radio Shack im sure will sell some converters.
Engineering....Where the unknowing teach the unwilling the unnecessary.
However, the change in impedance by splicing these two particular wires is so insignificant that it has absolutely no effect. The antenna in my car is a purely resistive load, with no induction component to cancel reactance. By adding a few micro-ohms of series resistance from the splice, you will certainly not notice any ill effects.
Please do not only accept these theoretical differences, but also take into account my driving test with this tuner hooked up to my car antenna. It worked perfect.
SWEET!!!!.... hope this one goes well
