Volume control/amp for Sirius Radio


Paul_G

Recommended Posts

Ok, Just about have the electronics dialed in. I added a Sirius Sportster radio last week. With a Boosteroo, it is

almost loud enough at speed. Problem is no volume control

when not at speed. Vouume control on the Sportster is not sufficient, and besides, drilling down through the menus

is not convienent. The folks at Radio Shack looked at me like I was from a different planet when I asked them for a potentiometer I could mount on my tank bag to control the

volume. Any thoughts on a small amp with a volume control?

12 volt would be nice. The tank bag is electrified.

 

Thanks

Looks like a great unit. I forgot to mention,I have an autocom Active 7 already dialed in with a HF820 for

Bluetooth and an Escort 8500. I don't need all the features of the mix it.

I think this is what your looking for. I have seen these at Radio Shack stores as well. Volume Control Cable web page

 

The Radio Shack volume control and this amp wired to the speakers and you'd have the option to use Sirius/XM or an MP3 player.

If your "Sirius plus boosteroo" system has enough "top-end volume", all you need to do is have the ablility to "dial it down" as needed. The Radio Shack in-line volume control should work just fine. I use this set up, velcroing the little RC unit to the top of the clutch reservior and run the wires alongside the existing lines. Easy reach with my left thumb. thumbsup.gif

My problem is not volume control. My problem is that the sirius doesn't go loud enough when I'm going over 60mph. I looked at the boosteroo and for the price didn't think it was worth it. What I'm looking for now is a pocket am/fm raido with digital tuning,(I can't be fussing with a tuneing dial at speed with gloves on). I can set it at 90.1mhz and pick up the signal from the sirius. I have the sirius mounted on the windscreen and having the earphone leed plugged into it and swinging in the breeze is annoying. Plus it makes getting off the bike one step harder. Having a pocket radio in a pocket keeps the volume close at hand and the cord in check. I'm sure I'll find one for under $25 which is the cost of a boosteroo.
