FCC Regulations
This unit complies with the interference limits relative to a Class B digital device, applicable under Part
15 of the FCC Rules regarding installation in a residential environment. If the unit is not installed in
accordance with these instructions, it could cause harmful interference to audio or television reception. If
this condition persists after corrective action, consult your dealer or experienced installation facility
Cautions and Warnings
2
1. Within the home, do not install the Streamer Boom Box in a position that obstructs viewing of
any home entertainment component, such as Television, or stereo system indicators and
displays
2. Do not install or use the SIR-STRPKI in locations exposed to direct sunlight, or in areas
subject to extreme temperatures; do not operate the unit in moist areas, in rain, or in areas
adjacent to water such as pools, hot tubs, etc.
3. When outdoors, position the SIR-STRPKI and antenna where there are no obvious satellite
signal obstructions such as high terrain, trees, overhangs, etc.
4. When installed indoors, unplug the AC Power Adapter from the wall outlet when the SIRSTRPKI is not to be used for an extended period of time. If batteries are installed, set the
Power On/Off-VOL control to t he Off position to prevent unintentional battery discharge, or
remove the batteries
5. To avoid possible damage to the Streamer Boom Box caused by battery leakage, it is
recommended that the batteries be removed when the Boom Box is not being used for an
extended period of time.
6. Do not install or place the SIR-STRPKI on an inclined or unstable surface.
7. By adhering to these warnings and safety considerations, serious accidents and/or personal
injury can be avoided.

1. If using the adapter, make sure the adapter cable
is not connected to an AC wall outlet until all interconnections have been made and verified. The
adapter power cable should be connected last.
2. Incorrect installation may cause damage to the
system.
3. During antenna placement/installation, refer to the
Antenna Aiming procedure outlined in the Shuttle

NOTE: The SIRIUS® signal can be received and
processed virtually anywhere as long as there
are no obvious satellite signal obstructions
such as high terrain, trees, overhangs, etc.
However, signal reception depends mainly on
where you are, geographically, and where
this place is with respect to the orbital paths
of the Sirius satellites. In placing the antenna,
therefore, these factors must be taken into
account.

Boom Box SIR-KH1 Controls
The Brix Sirius® Boom Box SIR-STRPKI provides
two contro buttons, a Power On/Off -Volume
control, and a pushbutton to toggle between
Satellite Radio or an auxiliary audio input signal.

input, turn the Streamer
Off to preserve batttery
power. Adjust the
volume level of the

external audio device
to obtain an audio output from the SIR-KH1.
The volume control on the external audio
device should be set to mid-range.
4. Power On/Low Battery LED: The LED
lights green when the Power On/Off SwitchVOL control s rotated clockwise (CW) to the On
Position. In addition, the LED will light red to
alert the user that the batteries are nearly dis
charged. This condition may cause degraded
performance of the SIR-STRPKI.
5. Power On/Off Switch-VOL Control:
Applies power to the Boom Box when rotated
clockwise (CW) from the Off position. When in
On position, increase or decrease the volume of
the audio output signal from the SIR-STRPKI.
To increase the volumen level rotate the
control CW. To decrease the volume level,
rotate the controlcounterclockwise (CCW)

5. Installing/Positioning the Antenna
For best reception, the supplied antenna should
be placed near a window if in the house or, if
outdoors, in an open area and as high as
possible; some repositioning may be required
to achieve optimum results. The following
guidelines are recommended:
a. In a major city, where Sirius® ground
repeaters are present, you can usually
place the antenna away from a window
and still achieve the desired results.
b. You can also place the antenna outside
(on the roof structure), provided it is
clear of any overhead obstructions.
Because of the orbiting characteristics
of the Sirius Satellites, the strength of
the received signal may change over
6
Streamer User Guide
time. In most cases however, the signal should be
available continuously. If you experience a loss of
signal or audio, reposition the antenna inside the
home or outside as necessary.
6. Antenna Placement Considerations
The antenna should be placed on a relatively flat
surface whenever possible. When outdoors, the
antenna may be left in its mount atop the Boom
Box provided no overhead obstructions are present.
To mount the antenna:
a. Plug the antenna into the ANT connector on the
back of the SIR-STRPKI.
b. Leave the antenna in place on the Boom Box,
or remove the antenna from its mount, uncoil
the antenna lead, and place it at the preferred
location inside or outside the home. If no audio
is heard, move the antenna to different positions
on the surface until an audio output is heard. This
is the desired antenna position and, if indoors,
should be marked.
c. After determining the optimum position, turn
off SIR-STRPKI and Streamer power. Disconnect
the power adapter from the wall outlet receptacle
(if indoors) and disconnect the antenna cable.
Streamer User Guide
d. Plan the routing of the antenna cable to the SIRSTRPKI ANT input when indoors. Make sure you
avoid any obstructions that could crimp, kink or twist
the cable; use protective grommets wherever rough
openings are encountered. If the antenna is mounted
outside, route the cable from the antenna position to the
interior of the home, working the cable through the
basement, under a window sill, etc.; make
adjustments and take up slack whenever necessary.
e. If outdoors, either leave the antenna in place atop
the SIR-STRPKI, or remove the antenna and find a
location free from overhead obstructions such as
tree branches, or the roof of a tent or other
temporary shelter.
f. Plug the antenna cable into the ANT connector on
the back of the SIR-STRPKI.
g. If not using battery power as the primary power
source, plug the female end of the DC adapter
cable into the DC 12V receptacle on the rear of the
SIR-STRPKI.
h. Plug the other end of the DC adapter cable into a
110-volt receptacle. Apply power to the Boom Box
and Shuttle.
i. You are now ready to enjoy Sinus programming
outdoors or within your home.

Maintenance
Periodic Inspection
The SIR-STRPKI Boom Box should be inspected periodically for external damage. At least once every 30
days of use, perform the following checks:
1. Inspect the 16-pin Streamer connector for loose, bent or broken pins, misalignment, etc.; make
sure the SAT connector is intact and exhibits no apparent damage.
2. Check the VOL control for freedom of motion without binding of any kind.
3. Check that the Mode Selector pushbutton operates correctly in that it toggles between the
Satellite Radio output and the AUX input.
4. Make sure the antenna connector at the rear of the unit is free from damage of any kind and
that the antenna lead plug mates correctly and securely.
5. Make sure the DC 12V connector at the rear of the unit is also free from damage of any kind
and that the AC Adapter plug mates correctly and securely.
6. Check the antenna for any physical damage; make sure the antenna lead is secure and not
nicked or frayed.
7. Inspect the overall Boom Box case and speaker grilles for damage such as nicks, scratches
punctures, etc.
Cleaning the SIR-STRPKI Boom Box
When cleaning the Boom Box, make sure the AC Adapter is unplugged from the power source. Do not
use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a lint-free cloth lightly dampened with water for cleaning
the exterior of the Boom Box only.
