Redwing-

Since the antenna is used to receive satellite GPS signals for your Navi..the signal is also the same as that of the Xradio signals. As for the X radio...You may in for a major customization of the X RADIO head unit in the MDX dash...Am sure that audio/video professional can do it...and to make it look clean you have to pay a price for it. I just know that the antenna can be used for X RAdio signals.

Fireblade6,
I need more info here. I have XM and a seperate Ant mounted on the roof. Where did you get the information that the Ant will work for XM? I woudl liek to try that if I can verify that it will work.

I am pulling my headliner to add sound deadining material next weekend ad woudl love to tap into it while I hav ethe headliner out.

BTW XM is great. The sound is not as good as a CD due to the compression but real close. More like a high bit rate MP3 or directv music channels (lacks a bit of bass).

:) I would highly advise against removing an audio system that was specifically tuned for this vehicle with a home-made hack job!

If you have such a strong desire to tinker with your new vehicle, change the oil or something.
Whatever.

I love my custom sound system and I say go ahead and put a new one in there if you want to. If you truely love good music the cheap factory or bose profit maker stuff just will not do.

Tuned to the car what a laugh. The marketing folks at Bose really hit a home run with that one.

BTW I had a 98 Corvette with a "tuned" to the car Bose system. That came out right away.

Sorry for the rant I just find Bose products to be overpriced markting-hyped products.

The first thing I did was have the factory sound system ripped out of my MDX and replaced with a custom system.

I have an Alpine XM head unit and XM module so I am not using any FM modulaton or cassette type stuff.

Do a search on my posts or XM and you should find a posting that has pics of my system.

If you want to add the FM modulated setup all you will see is a small controller that you can have placed just about anywhere similar to adding an FM modulated CD changer to a factory stereo.
