I received an XM radio with a car package. I have a 2001 Honda Civic ( four doorway). I pulled out all the stuff and I am missing with all the connections. Does any one particular have any insight for me?

It all is dependent on how you wish to hook it up.
You can set it up to run off of your car radios FM frequency utilizing just the XM system by itself (Set your radio to the exact same frequency as your XM frequency)
Or you can but, and plug in an antenna adapter. This will demand you to take your sprint apart a tiny little bit and connect a splicer cable to your antenna jack coming out of the again of your stereo. Then you will repeat the same methods as the cars radio setup I spoke of.
The last choice is an AUX port, but the 2001 Civic didnt have an AUX port so dont fear about that one.
Now to set up the system itself. You ought to get all the wires out and establish how you are likely to operate them prior to starting.
You will have four principal compontents (if carrying out the set up to run via auto stereo).
1. XM radio
2. Power cable
three. Satellite Antenna
4. FM Antenna
You can mount the XM radio exactly where at any time you want by any means.
You want the Satellite antenna to be if possible mounted on the best of you roof close to the again window. This will just take most of your time as you will need to get some inside areas off of your automobile.
Next you want to mount the FM antenna, you didnt say what model Civic you have so I will just suppose yours has the antenna built-in into the rear windsheild. Location the FM antenna as near as achievable to your antenna box (odd searching box on your rear windshield).
Plug your power cord into your 12v electrical power (cigarette lighter)
And you are prepared to go.
