Default Trying to cnnct Audiovox Sirius receiver to Panasonic head

Help! I got an audiovox Sirius receiver as part of the Friends & Family promotion about a year ago, it came with the controller and I just used the FM modulator to listen through the radio.
I just recently bought a Sirius Ready Panasonic Head Unit (CQ-DF903U)
The DIN in the back of the head unit for CD CHANGER / SIRIUS seems to be much larger than the DIN on the Audiovox Sirius Receiver, Any Clues?
I'm Going Crazy! Thanks everyone,

If I understand you correctly, you have been using one of the Audiovox PnP units, and just recently bought a new Siruis Ready Head unit. If this is the case, then you've got a few options.

If you still want to use the Audiovox PnP unit, then you can:
1) Continue to listen with the wireless FM modulator as you've been doing.
2) Get a SIRSWB (FM switchbox) and connect the FM Output on the PnP unit directly to your new head unit's antenna input (there are lots of threads around here related to the SIRSWB).
3) If your new head unit has AUX inputs in the back, you can use the Audio output on the PnP unit to plug into your new head unit.

If you want to use the Sirius ready functions of your new Panasonic head unit, then you DON'T need your PnP unit anymore. You'll need a Panasonic Sirius tuner (like this tuner) which will plug into the back of the new head unit and get mounted someplace out of sight. This is the kind of setup I have in my truck. I've got a Sirius ready Kenwood head unit and a Kenwood Sirius tuner that I mounted inside the glove box. The cabling that comes with the tuner should match that in the back of your new head unit. If you go with this method, however, you'll need a new Sirius subscription.
