Question about Sirius SUBX1 Universal Plug and Play Boom Box Boombox

Open Question

Need help disassembling Sirius SUBX1C Boombox...

The port where my power jack plugs in is 'wonky' and only makes intermittent contact. My suspicion is that the last time it was stored, there was tension on the jack, causing partial separation from the board. I am having difficulty getting the unit apart however. I have the front handle plate off, about 8 screws, plus another near the antenna mount. I am stuck at this point. Any help in this regard would be appreciated, as this unit was used only a few times and am hopefully looking forward to enjoying it some more.

SOURCE: Sirius Receiver goes silent and displays Acquiring Signal.

I have a 3 year old Sportster 2 replay unit that worked perfect until 1 month ago. I posted my problem on this website a day before you did with this same problem. I googled to no end and even spoke to Sirius who wasn't willing to replace my unit at no charge since it was out of warranty. I found an unusual solution on the internet that worked for me. I place my receiver in the freezer for at least 20 minutes (this was recommended by a guy somewhere on the internet with the same problem). I have actually left it in freezer overnight too. This has solved my problem. It is the craziest thing but I thought I would try it before I resorted to replacing all my accessories and receiver since Sirius was less than cooperative with the issue. Anyway, hope this helps.

SOURCE: need to disasseble my subx2 boombox to replace the

After dissassembling my subxr2, I have come to the conclusion that the issue with my antenna not being detected is in the female contact of the antenna's plug, not with the connector in the box (as I expected to find). I have not yet verified this by trying a new antenna. Here is how to dissassemble the box in any case.

Very carefully, with a small very flat screwdriver, remove the front grille of the unit. There are 8 additional screws set in deep holes that need to be removed. Once done, the front panel will pop right off.

The inside of the case is a mess of wires. You do not need to disconnect them if you do not want to.

Pry the grill off the bottom of the box. Remove the 4 screws that hold in the speaker. This will allow you to move the speaker that is in the main body out of the way.

The antenna jack is _not_ a part of the circuit board. If you look into the box, you will see a rectangular cut-out in the edge of the circuit board. There is a wire with a silver connector that is held in place by 2 screws. Remove those screws and you are now holding the antenna jack.

SOURCE: Sirius Stiletto 2 constantly "acquiring signal"

This is an odd fix, but I read it yesterday after having the "Acquiring Signal" issue for a week. I put it in the freezer for 30 minutes, brought it back to my desk and now it works. I don't know why or how, but I am happy.

MY BOOMBOX KEEPS TRYING TO ACQUIRE A SIGNAL AND WON'T PLAY


Check the antenna plug in in the back of the unit ! There is a very fine wire that sticks up in the middle of that jack ! It is very easy to bend it over losing a good solid contact to the antenna ! Also these things run very hot ! Carefully remove the speaker grills and the two screws they cover. Then you can open them up and drill cooling holes in the housing to let them shed some heat !

No sound from SUBX1 boombox


Be sure all is charged and connected to power correctly. Next the only other thing you can really do is to clean the connections on the device and the dock useing denatured(rubbing)alcohol and q-tips. This should help. Good Luck
P.S. Make sure all the settings are correct both on the dock and the xm - radio. Sometimes there are settings that can be off. Good Luck

Sirius question


Yes it should be very easy with use of the ear phone jack - depending on the model of course but generally all you need is an ac/dc power supply, the antenna connection, and for connection to receiver you can connect via FM or hard wire.
FM: as in your car pick an FM station frequency that is clear (no station on it) lets say 88.1 then set your home receiver on 88.1 and there you have it.
DIRECT: purchase a stereo 3.5mm headphone cable with two RCA male plugs at the other end. A faily common cable found in dollar stores or for five times the price at Walmart/Radio Shack etc.. Plug the 3.5mm plug into the 'headpone' jack of the satellite radio and the RCA plugs into the rear of your home receiver - usually a 'aux/line in plug" or "tape in" plug then turn the knob on the receiver to "aux or tape" selector. Bingo you should hear satellite radio all over the house....if the volume is UP! Take care Frank
