Question about Terk XMDirect Satellite Radio Receiver

Open Question

No Volume Control and Other Issue

I had this unit hooked up to my Alpine 9857 in my pickup and everything worked awesome. Well, since then, I move the head unit and everything to a different car and now it won't work. It finds the satellite fine and shows the station ID and the song information, but there is only two levels of volume, off and pretty low and it's not able to be adjusted. Also, when I switch over to either iPod or Tuner, you can still hear the XM playing in the background. Any support would be great. Thank you.

SOURCE: my xm plays extremely loud thru my car stereo.no

Are you playing it directly thru your FM antenna connection, or using the RCA jacks? You have to set the FM modulator level. It is also possible that you have a new FM radio with a type of ALC that will raise the lever regardless, but your regular car radio volume control should work. do not wire this directly to a power amp, as you won't have the control that you need. Good luck, let me know more.

Head unit connect


You will only be able to use this EQ on the front or the rear speakers. You will have to get another EQ if you think you need one. Usually, the front speakers of a car's audio system are the smallest and the rears are larger. You really do not want an EQ on the subs. If it was mine, I would hook the EQ between the head unit and the rear speakers. If you feel this does not sound right, you may need, but I doubt it very much, to get another EQ for the front speakers. Good Luck

Hi i turn my alpine on and i have 2 retune the radio stations i store them but when i get back in my car i have 2 start 2 retune any idears


Probably you dont have the constant pos (+) wire hooked up to hot (+) wire and only to a source that is switched. Switched means every time your key is removed from ignition switch the positive current from that source will also power down. There are two positive leads from the unit, 1 always hot and the other needs to be switchable. The constant hot (usually yellow) powers the memory for your settings. Just like your television set, once you pull the cord off the socket everything returns to default setting.

You have the amp hooked to the "Antenna turn on" which is the blue wire.... you need to hook it to the "REM" output whis is Blue with a white stripe.

Alpine Ipod/Stereo Error 1 message


my alpine cda 9856 only displays that message when my ipod dies. so your ipod pobably dies then the head unit recharges it enough in the time your resetting it that it can play again. :)
