My g/f SpecV's radio works fine. I have a stock H/U and never took the dash apart for anything. Only thing I have done that seems to affect it is my HIDs.You guys must either live a poor area for radio signals or you did something wrong during your HU installs.
I have a Pioneer HU and while the reception isn't top notch it's not horrible, either.
There is no difference in radio reception with my aftermarket HIDs on or off.
I grounded my radio to the metal bar at the rear of the radio compartment.
I do not have a line filter on the power lead going into the radio or my amp.
So you say you have poor reception but yet FM is great. What do you mean? Is the radio signals weak in your area, but radio works fine?05/6 has the bar too. I also have poor reception and I'm grounded there.... FM reception is great , AM blows donk.
I just wanna see if there is a solution. I asked the dealer once and they just said the typical. "nothing wrong". It sucks because I use my Ipod through the radio and that has static also.
