I represent ASA Electronics, the producer of the JENSEN brand of televisions, stereos, and speakers, Voyager brand of observation monitors and cameras and the Advent brand of appliances. At ASA, we strive to provide excellent customer service and product satisfaction and would like to offer some assistance in this matter.
“SIRIUS Ready” is the term used to describe a radio that has the capability of controlling a dedicated, direct connect SIRIUS tuner. This means that the radio will be able to handle all SIRIUS functions and channel/artist/song data on the display, in addition to presets, alerts, etc. These tuners are often referred to as a “black box” as they are small and hidden once installed. A dedicated SIRIUS antenna is also required, which connects to the tuner which is connected to the radio’s “TO SIRIUS” port on the rear (the grey cable). All radios require an outboard SIRIUS tuner as none are built into the radio (just as home satellite TV service requires the provider’s set top tuner and antenna).
If nothing is connected to the grey cable on the rear of your stereo, this indicates you need to add the compatible tuner (SCC1) and a suitable antenna, such as the Shakespeare SRA25. Depending on your coach build, these items can be included or left as dealer options.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance. You can also reach our Technical Services department directly at 877-845-8750 M-F 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM EDT.
