Basic Clarion Radio Antenna Trim

Postby MJSantos » Mon Jun 21, 2010 7:29 pm



Might be dating myself but on the basic Clarion AM/FM Stereo with Intercom, is there an Antenna Trim adjustment. I'm only picking up one station and years ago you could adjust the radio receiver to the antenna. It use to be where you could tune in a weak station then adjust for best signal. I looked at the installation manual for it and they just have the install data.

You can trim the antenna to the CB, but not to the radio. If you've got reception problems, check all the antenna connections - and if that doesn't do it, call Sierra Electronics.

I had to pull my radio (clarion II with CB) while looking for a short and found a small antenna tuner located under it. It was also the splitter for the radio and CB antenna leads. It had a trim screw for the AM/FM and another one for the CB. While shopping at Americade I stopped by the Sierra Electronics booth (www.sierra-mc.com) and they had a similar splitter on their rack so I don't know if mine was factory or after market. I should of picked up the instructions for tuning it but my radio and CB are working pretty good.

Okay, Thanks for the input. Without the CB option it looks like it will be Sierra. I hoping to keep the original radio on her since everything is still original.

Again Thanks
