Question Weak FM Signal

I just got a new S50 and car dock from Best Buy because my old one died....of course. The first thing i noticed was that the Fm output hole is covered. Why is that? Now my Fm signal is not as strong as my original unit. Did they knock the FM transmitter to a lower wattage and if so why? Is there a way to get a stronger signal?

That seems pretty bizarre since the FM out is where you would direct-connect the dock to your car stereo with the modulator.

It's also where you connet the FM antenna wire to get a stronger signal...
