Overview:
The SIRIUS Echo Signal Repeater System lets you
enjoy SIRIUS radio throughout your home without
the need to run antenna wires. It makes it easier
to position and install your SIRIUS home antenna
for best reception without restricting where you
place your SIRIUS radio – essentially giving you the
freedom to place your SIRIUS radio anywhere you
want in your home. The Echo Transmitter connects
to any SIRIUS home antenna, which must be positioned with a clear, unobstructed view of the SIRIUS
satellites. The Echo Transmitter wirelessly sends
the SIRIUS signal to the Echo Antenna, through the
walls and floors of your home. The Echo Antenna
discreetly connects to any SIRIUS radio. Now your
SIRIUS radio can be conveniently located anywhere
in your home, even in interior rooms, without
restrictions due to antenna placement or antenna
cable length, and without the need to run wires
through your home. You can even operate multiple
SIRIUS radios in different rooms throughout your
home, by connecting each additional SIRIUS radio
to an additional Echo Antenna (model SIR-WRR1),
which is sold separately.
The SIRIUS Echo Signal Repeater System is designed to work up to a distance of 75 feet between
the Echo Transmitter and each Echo Antenna, passing the signal through walls and floors, in a typical
wood frame and drywall construction home found in
North America. However, homes constructed with
concrete interior walls or with steel frame construction, may affect the wireless signal strength and
degrade the range of the system.

Echo Transmitter Installation
When you have confirmed that the SIRIUS home
antenna is aimed properly, and has a good SIRIUS
signal, you are ready to install the Echo Transmitter.
The location of the Echo Transmitter is important
for getting the best performance out of your SIRIUS
Echo Signal Repeater System. Avoid locating the
Echo Transmitter near any of the following items
which could cause degradation of the wireless
signal:
-
Microwave Ovens
Electric Ranges
Window Air Conditioners
Large Appliances
Cordless phones
Electrical Fuse or Breaker Panels
Other wireless transmitters such as those for
Wireless Video or Wireless Headphones or the
SIRIUS Tuner in the SIRIUS Conductor System.
Consider where you will be using the Echo
Antenna(s). Locate the Echo Transmitter within 75
14
feet of the farthest Echo Antenna, but no closer than
10 feet to the closest Echo Antenna. For multi-story
homes, you can place the Echo Transmitter and
Echo Antennas in different floors.
To install the Echo Transmitter,
1 Connect the cable from the SIRIUS home antenna to the antenna connector on the rear of
the Echo Transmitter.
2 Connect the AC Adapter to the power connection on the rear of the Echo Transmitter, and
plug the AC Adapter in to a standard 110 volt AC
outlet.
3 Raise the black plastic antenna to an upright
vertical position, so that it is pointing straight
up.
4 Ensure that all the 3 LEDs on the front of the
Echo Transmitter are lit up.
This completes the Echo Transmitter installation.

Extra Installation Tips
• Your Echo Antenna may be placed indoors up to 75
feet away from the Echo Transmitter.
• There should at least be a separation of 10 feet
between your Echo Transmitter and Echo Antenna
• The Echo Antenna should be placed as high as
possible above obstacles for best reception.
• Multiple Echo Antennas (and SIRIUS radios) can
be operated with one Echo Transmitter (additional
Echo Antennas are available separately, P/N SIRWRR1).
• Both the Echo Transmitter and the Echo Antenna
may be wall mounted using the screws included
in the kit. The Echo Transmitter has wall mount
screw spacing of 2 ½ inches apart and the Echo
Antenna has a spacing of 1 ½ inches apart. Insert
the screws into the wall with approximately ¼”
distance from the wall. Place the back of the
unit over the heads of the screws and pull down
16
slightly to engage the slot lock. To remove the unit
from the wall, slide directly up the wall and pull
out and off the screw heads. The Echo Antenna
can be rotated 90 degrees when a wall mount
configuration is desired.
• You can use the following SIRIUS home antennas
either sold separately or found in signal distribution kits to connect to the Echo Transmitter:
o The SIRIUS indoor/outdoor home antenna found
in SIRIUS home kits
o The SIRIUS indoor/outdoor home antenna sold
separately
o The SIRIUS outdoor home antenna sold separately
o The SIRIUS outdoor home antenna found in the
following signal distribution kits:

Using the SIRIUS Echo Signal Repeater System
When the Echo Transmitter and Echo Antenna have
been installed, turn on the SIRIUS radio and check the
Antenna Aiming/Signal Strength display to verify the
SIRIUS signal strength. If the SIRIUS signal strength
is good, and the audio from the SIRIUS radio is good,
the system is working properly. If the SIRIUS signal
strength is not good, or the audio from your SIRIUS
radio is either absent or intermittent, then the system
installation needs to be fine tuned. Please consult the
troubleshooting section in this manual.
SIRIUS Echo Signal Repeater System and SIRIUS
Conductor System - Coexistence
The SIRIUS Echo Signal Repeater System has been
designed to minimize interference between any of its
own system components (Echo Transmitter and Echo
Antenna) and other wireless devices that are typically
found in a home such as certain cordless phones,
baby monitors, wireless headphones etc. However,
to get the best performance out of your SIRIUS Echo
system and these other devices, we advise that you

avoid placing the Echo Transmitter and the Echo Antenna close to these other products.
Special consideration in product placement should
be given if you want to operate both the SIRIUS Echo
Signal Repeater System and the SIRIUS Conductor
System in your home. In this case, we recommend
that you place the Echo Transmitter and the SIRIUS
Conductor Tuner as far apart from each other as
possible and at least in separate rooms. This type of
placement would maximize the chances of getting
the best performance out of both systems. Also, if the
SIRIUS Conductor Remote is used in close proximity
of the Echo Transmitter, you may experience some
reduction in its range. Also, if the SIRIUS Conductor
Remote is used in close proximity to the Echo Transmitter, you may experience some reduction in the
Conductor Remote's range.

1 Adjust the SIRIUS home antenna until it receives adequate signal from the
SIRIUS satellites. Temporarily connect the SIRIUS radio directly to the SIRIUS
home antenna by disconnecting the Echo Antenna from the SIRIUS radio,
disconnecting the SIRIUS home antenna from the Echo Transmitter, and connecting the SIRIUS home antenna directly to the SIRIUS radio or home dock.
Using the Antenna Aiming or Signal Strength display of your SIRIUS radio,
aim the SIRIUS home antenna to obtain at least six bars of SAT and/or TER
signal strength. (Refer to the instruction manual of your SIRIUS radio for more
information on using the Antenna Aiming/Signal Strength display, and the
SIRIUS home antenna installation manual for more information on aiming the
antenna).
Reconnect the SIRIUS home antenna and the AC Adapter to the Echo Transmitter. Plug in the AC Adapter to a standard 110 volt AC outlet. Verify that all
3 green LEDs on the front of the Echo Transmitter are lit. Especially, if the
‘SIGNAL” LED on the front of the Echo Transmitter is lit, then the SIRIUS home
antenna is receiving a usable level of SIRIUS signal that the Echo Transmitter can broadcast around the home. If it is not, then adjust the SIRIUS home
antenna until the “SIGNAL” LED on the Echo Transmitter lights up
