Default Hardwiring my JVC

I just got a JVC KT-SR2000 unit. I'm not happy with the quality of it in my car using the built in FM transmitter. My question is this:

If I hardwire it to the antena imput on my stereo will I get better (digital) quality audio or is it the same signal that I get through the transmitter.

Also

Is there any way to hardwire it from the audio out on the unit right into my factory installed (Lexus) car stereo?

Thanks

you may have a chance in hell at getting an aux input adapter, depending on the year of the Lexus.

what year, model is the Lexus? also, the hardwired FM Mod is a completely whole signal, not choppy or interfered with static from competing frequencies/shared stations on that channel.

let us know, perhaps others will chime in with their opinions.

Get the SATSWB first and see how that works for you.

yes, the SAT-SWB should work for you, and the sound quality will definitely improve versus what you hear today, but i have only had experience installing it with a Sirius Sportster and the XM XR9, so i do not know if it works with the JVC PNP unit.


but believe me, this choice is a much cheaper solution than a aux input adapter hardwired into the OEM radio, the cost of that is steep.

Another cheap way: If your deck has a cassette player, get a Sony cassette adapter. It will give you better sound quality than the SATSWB. Not as clean looking as far as hiding the wire, but definitely better SQ.

Thanks. I have like 3 of these floating around somewhere. That was the next thing i was going to try.
Now I'll go dig one out.

Thanks again.

The general concensus on this forum is that the Sony seems to be the best performer. You may be lucky and one of the ones you already have will work fine. But if you find them noisy or you can hear your tape mechanisms churning, or your deck keeps auto-reversing, or it doesn't seat properly, don't be discouraged. You can pick up the Sony for about $20 at Circuit City.

I originally dug an old one out of my bag of wires, from an old CD player. It had all of those problems, so I got the Sony.

Thanks again. I know one of them is a Sony. I'll make sure I find that one.
