Two ways to add SiriusXM satellite radio to your car

The tuners you need to get the music you want

Thinking about adding SiriusXM Satellite Radio to your car or truck? In this article, we'll take a look at two of SiriusXM's best tuners, the SiriusXM SXV300V1 and the SiriusXM SXWB1V1 TOUR.

Maximum entertainment

More and more cars are rolling out of the factory with satellite radio built-in, but if yours doesn't have it and you want it, SiriusXM has a tuner that's right for you and your car. If you're still in the "Gee, Idunno?" stage of the decision-making process, here's just a few of the reasons you really do want to add SiriusXM satellite radio to your car:

  • An unparalleled variety of music choices: You'll get multiple music channels, including rock, pop, country, hip-hop, R&B, electronic, jazz, classical, Latin, world, and Christian channels.
  • An amazing array of news and talk: If it's worth talking about, someone's talking about it on SiriusXM's wide variety of national news, sports, talk, and entertainment channels.
  • Up-to-the-minute traffic and weather: In select metropolitan markets, you can find out what the conditions are and plan your route accordingly.
  • Sports: If you're a sports fanatic, you really need SiriusXM. Whether you're into baseball, basketball, football, hockey, racing, and/or soccer, you'll never miss a big event.
  • No annoying ads: Most music channels on SiriusXM are commercial-free.
  • Crystal-clear signals: SiriusXM's digital signal means no static or interference and the ability to transmit text information like stock quotes and sports scores alongside musical signals.
  • Coast-to-coast coverage: satellite radio is available across the continental 48 states, plus parts of Alaska and Puerto Rico. You can even get a signal up to 200 miles offshore, so if you're a boat owner, there's another reason to get into SiriusXM.

What kind of tuner is right for your car?

If you already have a compatible aftermarket stereo or you're planning to install one, the SiriusXM SXV300V1 tuner is the one to choose. But if you can't (or just don't want to) replace the stock radio, you'll want a dock-and-play option, like the SiriusXM SXWB1V1 TOUR with 360L. We'll take a closer look at each one below.

SiriusXM SXV300V1 Tuner

The SiriusXM SXV300V1 fits behind your vehicle's dash, so you'll get great programming and a clean look.

Add SiriusXM to your aftermarket stereo

When you connect a SiriusXM SXV300V1 to any of the many SiriusXM-Ready™ aftermarket car stereos currently available, all that awesome entertainment will sound better than ever in your car or truck.

This compact tuner fits behind your car's dash and plugs into your SiriusXM-Ready™ car stereo without the need for additional cables or interfaces. It comes in a complete package that contains the hideaway tuner, an exterior antenna (with a magnetic base for easy mounting), and an installation guide.

With select car stereos (see note below), you can access some great new SiriusXM features, like Traffic & Weather Now, SportsFlash™, and TuneMix™ which plays a unique blend of songs chosen from channels you've stored as presets. The best part is that if you don't want to hear a particular song right now, you can skip over it. 

Kenwood KDC-BT858U

Look for the "SiriusXM-Ready" logo on receivers like this Kenwood

If you have an older receiver that's SiriusXM-compatible, you won't get those newer features, but you'll still get all the SiriusXM music, entertainment, news, and sports programming you love, plus cool features like Replay and iTunes® song tagging. And you'll be able to enjoy the new features whenever you upgrade your receiver.

Depending on your subscription package, you'll get SiriusXM's Xtra Channels with the SXV300V1. That's over 20 additional music, sports, entertainment, plus SiriusXM Latino, a collection of dedicated Spanish-language channels. Ask your Crutchfield advisor for more details. 

Factory Radios and Other Notes: The SXV300V1 connects directly with aftermarket in-dash receivers that have a "SiriusXM-Ready™" logo.

With the help of a Vais Technology adapter, you can add SiriusXM satellite radio to a wide variety of factory radios. Enter your vehicle info or talk to a Crutchfield Advisor to see if there's one available for your car or truck.

You'll also need to purchase a subscription from SiriusXM. Satellite radio service is available only within the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service is available in Alaska.

A special package for boats and RVs

Want to bring SiriusXM programming to your boat or RV? The SiriusXM SXV300M package includes the satellite radio tuner, plus a marine-ready Shakespeare antenna, a 25-foot antenna cable, and three antenna mounting options — surface, low profile with base, and pedestal. 

Our best dock-and-play SiriusXM satellite radio

If you have an older car, a leased car, a car with a seriously integrated dash, or you simply don't want to replace the stock stereo, you don't have to settle for second-rate entertainment. The SiriusXM SXWB1V1 TOUR with 360L lets you add SiriusXM when you thought you were stuck with AM and FM.

SiriusXM SXWB1V1 TOUR with 360L

The SiriusXM SXWB1V1 TOUR is a great option when replacing the stock radio isn't possible

The SXWB1V1 TOUR offers tons of cool features, including built-in Bluetooth® connectivity, WiFi, and voice control. With Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, you can create your own artist stations and get recommendations curated just for you based on your listening history.

There's an on-demand feature that lets you access recorded shows, live performances, interviews, and events, and if you're a sports fan, you can get real-time updates on all your favorite teams. You can view all the program and channel information on the 4.3" touchscreen color display, along with great graphics like channel logos and album art.

The built-in Bluetooth makes it easy to connect to your radio, home sound system, or a Bluetooth speaker, but you'll also get the accessories you'll need for installation in your car. The vehicle kit inclides a vehicle dock and antenna, dash and vent mounts, and a cable to connect to your car radio's auxiliary input.

If your car's radio doesn't have an aux input, the included SiriusXM PowerConnect™ system will deliver clear sound through your vehicle's FM radio. If you have an older car, the Tour will work with a cassette adapter (not included).

    I have a 2008 C6 Corvette. I have SiriusXM on the factory Head Unit. So it has the model and antenna. From reading other comments it appears that if I go with a newer head unit with Apple Car Play and Bluetooth I can not us the factory module?Why? Also really do not want to replace the factory antenna . It is unobtrusive and not really seen. So what are my choices. I do not want a separate unit I already have one of those .

    I want to replace the factory radio in my 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500. It has a CD player and is satellite ready. I want all these same features plus Android Auto and IPhone Car. Does anyone make a double din in dash radio that fit these requirements?

    I have a 2012 Nissan Titan Pro-4x with a factory stereo and my current sirius xm subscription. I want to upgrade to a new double din system with sirius xm. Do I have to purchase a new sirius xm tuner or can I still use the factory one?

    Jesse, When you replace the factory radio, you'll lose your factory satellite radio capability, so yes, you'll need a new tuner. I've sent your question to our sales team, and they'll be contacting you via email soon. For immediate help, you can contact them via phone or chat.

    Hi, I have a 2017 Lexus ES 350 which has an XM Radio which doesn't offer near the channels that the Pioneer AVH-2200 I put in my previous car provided. I know it's not wise to tinker with the stock radio in this car but is there a way to give full SiriusXM features to an XM radio? Thanks!

    Commenter image

    Jon Paul from Crutchfield

    on 3/23/2021

    Lauren, Indeed, tinkering with the stock radio is not recommended in this or any other case! That said, there are some options available that might help. Give us a call and talk to one of our advisors. We can help you choose the right gear and give you the right advice on how to install it.

    I have a 2016 Ford Transit Connect. I was thinking of putting in a Sirius/XM ready stereo. I use my docking station with my Sirius/XM radio and subscription in the house daily. My question, would I have to pay for a second subscription for the vehicle stereo?
