Aftermarket stereo

10

Asked by Dec 24, 2015 at 10:25 PM about the 1990 Pontiac Grand Prix 2 Dr Turbo Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

If I install an aftermarket stereo (head unit and
speakers no amp or subs) do I need to also have
my antenna connected to it? My antenna recently
broke and I was going to put in a new stereo
system. My head unit has xm radio built in as well.

Only need the antenna to pull in radio stations. The cd player will work just fine.

So I can still use the xm radio and the Bluetooth/usb fine without having the antenna?

If that stuff pulls it off the internet then sure.

I'm not sure I just bought a head unit that has xm radio on it I'm not sure if it needs to connect to the antenna or not

I am not sure on that either. You couldn't ask the people who sold it to you? What about the directions? I am not up on gadgets but know what is that called, I-Pod you can hook that up without the antenna. I am not up on that xm radio, but I would think that Radio is a key word so then you would need the antenna. Why don't you replace the damn thing?

The people at Best Buy today were absolutely no help at all I had to ask another customer about it. I actually just looked it up I need to get a new antenna put in which is what I'm going to do on Saturday then install the stereo on Sunday.
