Crestron Announces Satellite Radio Antenna Solutions

Crestron Antenna Solutions Simplify Satellite Radio Installation and Distribution

ROCKLEIGH, NEW JERSEY - Crestron introduces versatile antenna packages that simplify installation and distribution of multi -room satellite radio. Just one Crestron outdoor antenna can feed up to 16 Crestron XM or SIRIUS® satellite radio tuners, and these new satellite antenna solutions enable the distribution of satellite radio channels to multiple receivers throughout the home and office using standard RG -6 cable.


The high -performance Crestron antenna features a considerably narrower beam as compared to standard consumer antennas, achieving a significantly higher signal -to -noise ratio. Additional front -end filtering blocks interference from nearby out -of -band RF signal sources such as Wi -Fi, cellular and cordless telephones.

For easy ordering and installing Crestron offers the following four satellite radio antenna packaged solutions:

SRD -ANT -1 -PAK supports a single tuner; range up to 200 feet

SRD -ANT -4 -PAK supports up to four independent tuners; range of up to 200 feet each

SRD -ANT -1LD -PAK includes one tuner and high -gain line amplifier; range of up to 350 feet

SRD -ANT -8 -PAK (includes two 4 -way amplified splitters) supports up to eight tuners: signal range up to 300 feet. An additional 3 -way couple can split the antenna signal to each of the two amplified splitters, allowing easy expansion up to a total of 16 satellite radio tuners.

The basic kit for each package includes a wall mount bracket, pole mount hardware, F -to SMB adapter cable(s), and weatherproof boot. The 4 -PAK features the 4 -way splitter and attenuator, and the 8 -PAK adds a line amplifier, 4 -way coupler, (2) 4 -way amplified splitters, and attenuators.
