Question about Sirius SUBX1 Universal Plug and Play Boom Box Boombox
The issue with 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.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.
