XM Radio

I'm installing a XM Radio unit on my 1500. Power is through a installed power outlet. I have the cassette adapter for the sound. Everything hooks up fine. My only problem is that the sound is low, even with the knob turned all the way up. Help please.

Thanks

Go to the menu on the XM radio, scroll down to audio level and adjust it to full.

I did that. Before that I could barely hear anything ( about a 2-3 on a scale of 1-10) Now it is about a 5. And that's with the headset in my helmet - with the engine off. Engine running, 3. Bike speakers with engine on and riding, 0-1. May be I need another unit.

Try plugging a different sound source into your cassette adapter - a cell phone or MP3 player. That way you can isolate the source of the low signal to the XM unit or the cassette adapter/GL1500 radio.

Could be dirty cassette heads too. Depending on what XM radio you have, it might have a FM transmitter built in to it, you might try that way too.


Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself. Our stress about it happens when the two aren't the same. Be true to yourself and to hell with what everyone else thinks!
