entertainment and completely
commercial-free music for your car,
home or office.
Navigational traffic information for 22
major metropolitan areas* in the
continental US.
Only SIRIUS has more than 65 original
music channels, from today’s hits to R&B
oldies to classical masterpieces. From
authentic country and real bluegrass to cool
jazz, hot latin, reggae, rock and many more.
Best of all, it’s all completely commercialfree.
SIRIUS also has more than 55 channels of
world-class sports, news and
entertainment. Included as part of your

SIRIUS Traffic conveys navigational traffic
information for visual display on a
compatible navigation system.
Using a navigation system (such as the
Alpine NVE-N872A), traffic data from
SIRIUS is displayed either superimposed on
a navigation map, or in a list type format
displayed on the navigation screen. The
data provides traffic speed and flow
information as well as scheduled and
unscheduled incidents, alerting you to
congestion, accidents, road construction,
detours, and other traffic related information
as you drive. The navigation system’s touch
and voice recognition controls can provide
easy access to detailed information. The
SIRIUS Traffic data is updated frequently
enabling you to be up-to-date regarding
traffic situations. Based on the information
from SIRIUS Traffic, the navigation system
can then plan alternate routes before you
get caught in traffic, and if you make a
wrong turn, the system can recalculate your
route and get you back on track in seconds.
* Metropolitan areas for which the SIRIUS Traffic service is available as of November 2005
are: Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas /Ft. Worth, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles,
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix,
Pittsburgh, San Francisco/Oakland, San Diego, San Jose, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa, and
Washington, DC. Additional cities are expected to be added as they become available.

Installation
It is recommended that prior to starting the
installation, you read completely this
installation manual and follow the guidelines
listed below:
Consider the mounting location carefully.
You should make sure that you avoid the
following:
• Any location where the tuner is
exposed to moisture.
• Any location where the tuner is
exposed to extreme heat.
• Any location that would interfere with
moving parts on the vehicle or interfere
with driving.
Mounting the SIR-ALP10T Tuner
Be sure that you find a location that is flat
and has clearance above the tuner to
prevent any damage, as well as allow for
ventilation.
Do not install the tuner under the carpet or
in a small enclosed area without proper
ventilation. Doing so can result in damage
to the tuner or the vehicle. Use the supplied
screws to securely fasten the unit.
Installing the Antenna
The antenna includes a plastic cable cover/
tail which covers the exposed antenna
cable and keeps it attached securely to
vehicle roof. The tail also helps position the
antenna the proper distance from the rear
window, sunroof or rear hatch.
To attach the cover/tail:
1. Once you have determined the proper
mounting location (see the next
section), clean the area with the
supplied alcohol swab.
2. Connect the antenna cover/tail to the
antenna cable, making sure that the
strain-relief on the antenna seats into
the cover/tail groove. Route the cable
through the wire channel in the cover/
tail.

Optimum Antenna Mounting Locations
The optimum location to mount the antenna
is on the roof of the vehicle. It is important to
avoid any obstruction that will block the
satellite signal, such as a roof rack. For
convertible vehicles, install the antenna on
the trunk lid as shown.
• Place the antenna on a metal surface
of your vehicle at least 12" x 12", and at
least 6" from a window. (Use the
antenna cover/tail as a guide for the
proper distance from the rear window.)
• The antenna’s magnet will secure it to
the metal surface. The adhesive that is
attached to the antenna cover/tail will
secure the cable to the vehicle. Before
routing the antenna cable, confirm that
the antenna is mounted in a suitable
location.
• Route the cable from the antenna to the
vehicle’s interior by tucking it
underneath the rubber molding around
the rear window, if possible.
• Route the cable from the lowest point
of the rear window into the trunk. Take
advantage of any existing cable
channels or wiring conduits.
• For SUVs, minivans and five-door
vehicles, bring the cable into the
vehicle under the rubber molding of the
tailgate, and continue under the interior
trim.
• From the trunk, carefully route the
cable to the location of the
SIR-ALP10T and plug the SMB
connector into the tuner.

Activating Your SIRIUS Subscriptions
You must activate the SIR-ALP10T before
you can start to receive the SIRIUS Satellite
Radio service and the SIRIUS Traffic
service. Each is a separate service, and
each needs to be activated individually.
In order to activate your radio and traffic
subscriptions, you will need the two SIRIUS
IDs (SIDs) – one for the SIRIUS Satellite
Radio service and one for the SIRIUS Traffic
service – which uniquely identify your SIRALP10T tuner. The SIDs may be found on
sticker located on the bottom of the SIRALP10T packaging or on the bottom of the
unit itself.
The label will have printed on it two 12-digit
SID numbers. The first will be the Data SID
for the SIRIUS Traffic service, for example,
“Data SID: 123456789012”. The second is
the Audio SID for the SIRIUS Radio service,
for example, “Audio SID: 987654321098”.
Note: It is possible to activate only the
audio or the traffic service, just use the
appropriate SID. When you have located
both SIDs, write them down in the space
provided on page 22 of this manual.
Obtaining the Audio SID from the
Alpine Headunit
If you do not have access to the SID
stickers on the packaging or on the product,
