JVC KT_SR2000 Sirius Radio - Bad connection between radio & dock.
The left speaker channel output is low when balance is set to left speaker. If I give the radio a slight twist while its in the dock, the left channel comes in full. But once I let off the pressure of the twist, I loose the left channels full connection. Any suggestion how this can be fixed.

That depends on the make and model of the radio, and the available inputs on the GHC1000. Does your radio have a line output socket? If not, you can generally use the headphone socket to source a signal. Then all you'll need is a cable with a 3.5mm stereo plug on one end and two x RCA plugs at the other - easily available at low cost from an electronics store. The RCA plugs go to a free line input on the Grundig amplifier and the 3.5 mm plug goes into the radio's headphone socket. HOWEVER some radios require a DC return path to detect that there is something plugged into the socket. You Grundig cannot provide this, and if your radio needs it, this method will not work. So hopefully your radio will not need it.....
By the way, you will have to experiment with the volume setting on the radio if you decide to try connecting it this way and find that it does work. Set too low there will be insufficient audio to run the Home Theater at reasonable volume, too high and you'll get distorted sound. Trial and error is the way to go, but start with the Grundig's volume control set to a low level and the radio's volume control set about half way - to protect your speakers from potential damage if you accidentally drive them too loud
Radio is a 4 channel 22 watts per channel 2 ohm stable unit. There are no pre-amp outputs, so be sure whatever amp you're using accepts high level inputs, or have pre-amps installed by Iron Cross Audio. When adding the amp, be sure the speakers used are impedance matched to the amp, not the radio.
Internal issue with the radios amp circuit. The speaker output and the headset output run through different circuits. If you have headset output, all functions prior to the amp circuit are good. Radio will need to be repaired. Contact Iron Cross Audio for repair options. www.ironcrossaudio.com
I have exactly the same problem but found two work arounds, either one that I am completely satisfied.
1. unplug and replug the AC.
2. I have a subwoofer, when I plug the subwoofer cable half way in, the sounds of the base speak goes back to normal (but not all the way in)
how about the antenna this could be the main problem im not a motorcycle expert but radios i do know and if your getting static the antenna which is called the aireal << spell check is not picking up enough signal
