Poor cound quality

I recently had a Delphi Xpress 10513 XM receiver installed in my Volvo V70. The dealer installed the unit and an additional FM modulator which is mounted on the dash and has3 preset FM stations to select from (I set it on 88.1). The problem is that the sound quality is very poor and most stations sound somewhat muffled. They claim this is the best I can expect. I have XM in my GMC truck and had it in my 2000 Acura. Both had excellent sound as good as the radio signal. The dealer has pretty much washed his hands on this issue and will refund the cost of the unit but not the installation price. I don't want to tear out the unit since with Volvos (2004), as soon as you remove the heater controls you inactivated the airbags and have to pay the dealer $120 to reprogram the computer. Any suggestion as to what I can do to improve the quality of my XM listening?

Does the XM use a radio station for recieving the sound or is it wired in to the vehicle. if you have to set a radio station so you can use the XM then what you can do it set the station to some other channel. it maybe to close to a real radio station or the frequency it to weak and you'll need a stronger signal

Will delphi sa10000 without cassette player


Should be able to hear Sirius channels through your FM radio. Cassette is better, but you can just set up your FM radio to the same channel as you set the Delphi unit. See instruction manual (download from online here) http://www.siriusretail.com/pdf/hardware_support/delphi/skyfi_operations.pdf

What do I need to install my roady to a 12volt dc system?


Just a Delphi 12VDC cigarette lighter adapter plug that will plug into this unit. You will also need an XM mini car antenna plugged into it. This has a nice FM transmtter, so you can use that, or use the audio output plug to go to your car AUX input jack or use a cassette adapter. Okay? More questions, just ask.

The factory xm volume to low in 2006 corvette


Separate 'plug and play' XM radios, like the one pictured above, have a "MENU" setup, and you can adjust the "Audio Level" in that menu setting. See if you can access an XM menu. You can also ask your question over at XM411.com or XMfan.com; both are 'fan' websites.
Good luck - nice car too!

The remote does not turn on the Delphi XM Xpress on car unit


This problem is caused due to the fact that xm has designed there radios to completely shut off all power with the unit therefore the unit once off will not be able to recieve information from the remote. This manufacturing defect was confirmed by the xm representative, they also explained that the company is currently planning to fix this issue on the new 2009 model xpress rc

How do i install the xm receiver?


Yes, the unit should have a FM mode where you can use it to transmit the signal over your FM stereo. The unit should come with a FM transmitter and it should be in the instructions on how to install it. All you have to do then is make the unit play on the same station your radio is on.

New Delphi installation over older delphi car kit


Just installed the xpress RC in my Durango, replacing my SKYFi2. Both units are Delphi (all of the newer xpress RC's are made by Audiovox now, but Amazon sent me the Delphi made unit). Everything swapped out with the exception of the 12dc power cord. Had to use the one included in the new unit, plug size that goes in the new cradle for the RC is different. In the new unit I did get two "user guides" in Spanish and none in English (I wish America would adopt one friggin standard language. English) but other than that it was quick and painless.

XM reciever FM transmitter problem


hi Mr.Frazier....is the xm radio hardwired installed? if it's a yes you have to go to a professional(bestbuy, retailers) to have the connection check.. the problem is not within the xm radio..it's on how it was installed or set up...

If the radio was not built..well, that's much better we just have to check the audio connection from you're xm to fm radio (make sure to check if what band it is connected..such as AUX,CD etc.) if there's a sound but you're only getting preview channels..refresh must be send on the radio...you can call xm to ask for that OR do it online at www.refresh.xmradio.com and type in your 8 digit radio I.D just have to follow the activation instruction faithfully...Godbless!
