Except in my opinion, am actually sounds better. That or I'm just used to it and its mono broadcast

Axios... Then again, I wouldn't feel the way I do if I were.

I drove a Ford rental car all week and the good news is... Sirius sounds just as bad, if not worse, in the Ford than it does in my JK. Glad it's not a Jeep stereo thing.

I can't listen to regular radio after having Sirius and the thing that sucks about an iPod is that there is no variety/surprise. Its all music you put there.

I have one Sirius/XM radio account and a separate tuner. I just have cradles wired into the receivers and move the Sirius tuner to whatever I'm driving (listen to it 90% in work truck). My work truck is noisy, my Jeep is noisy, if I can just hear Opie & Anthony, Boneyard and Liquid Metal, I'm happy. I originally subscribed for Stern, but can't stand him anymore.

I assume the problem is with the head unit. I've been in other vehicles with Sirius and the sound is fine. I have noticed that the tinny sound also happens when listening to music via bluetooth. When I plug my iphone in thru the usb port it sounds fine but when I use the bluetooth is sounds like sh** Must be something with the wireless receiver in the head unit.
