Question about Delphi Roady2 SA10085 XM Radio Receiver with Car Kit
Hi, I have a roady xt
When using the car kit there is a high pitch sound in the background it is more pronounced on the talk stations. It is less when I use the wireless radio transmitter but when I hook it up directly using the aux port it is an unacceptable nuisance. I'm afraid it has something to do with the kit and not the receiver itself. Is this a common problem? Do you know of a solution? I don't want to replace the kit and still have the problem.
Thanks in advance,
A high pitch sound while connected in the house is either a problem with the reciever or you are picking up interference from somewhere. However, the high pitched noise when using the unit in a car (especially through an aux. connection), is caused by the alternator of the car. This can be eliminated by connecting a filter in-line with the aux wire (much like filters are installed on the radio power line). The filter is essentially a low pass filter that filters out noise above a certain frequency. You may have to get creative and modify your aux. input cable (i.e. - splice it into the aux cable) in order for this to work, or you can just turn the volume down a bit - it should be less noticeable at lower volumes.
