    Question radio signal

    I recently purchased new headunit. Alpine CDA-9827
    After installing it, I've noticed radio reception is considerably weaker than
    the stock unit was.
    Anybody experienced this, or have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Try a search...

    Sounds familiar... there's been some discussion on this before...

    The harness is the same, but the 05 has a amplified antenna. Make sure that you connect the power antenna wire to the harness, or, in case your radio does not have this feature, connect it to the accessory/RED wire. If not, you will not get any FM/AM reception.

    You'll find more if you search for a bit.
