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
1. Within the home, do not install the Shuttle 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-BB1 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-BB1 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 SIR-BB1 is
not to be used for an extended period of time. If batteries are installed, set the Power On/Off-VOL
control to the Off position to prevent unintentional battery discharge, or remove the batteries.
5. To avoid possible damage to the Shuttle 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-BB1 on an inclined or unstable surface.
7. By adhering to these warnings and safety considerations, serious accidents and/or personal
injury can be avoided.

Installation/Wiring Precautions
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
User Guides, SIR-PNP1(1286812) or SIR-PNP2
(1286901).

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-BB1 Controls
The Audiovox Sirius® Boom Box SIR-BB1 provides two
control buttons, a Power On/Off -Volume control, and a
pushbutton to toggle between Satellite Radio or an
auxiliary audio input signal. A power-on LED is also
located on the front panel.
1. PHONES Jack: Accepts a stereo headphone jack
to provide private listening capability for the Boom
Box.
2. SRS/AUX Selector Pushbutton: Pushbutton
toggles between Satellite Radio and an external
audio input signal (MP3, CD, etc.) present at the
AUX input jack.
3. AUX Jack: Accepts an audio input signal from
6
an external audio device. When
using the AUX audio
input, turn the Shuttle
off to preserve battery
power. Adjust the
volume level of the
external audio device 1
3 4

to obtain an audio output from the SIR-BB1. 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 Switch-VOL control
i s rotated clockwise (CW) to the On position. In
addition, the LED will light red to alert the user
that the batteries are nearly discharged. This
condition may cause degraded performance of
the SIR-BB1.
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, increases or
decreases the volume of the audio output signal
from the SIR-BB1. To increase the volume level,
rotate the control CW. To decrease the volume level,
rotate the control counterclockwise (CCW).
6. Release Button: Press this button to release and
remove the Shuttle from the SIR-BB1 cradle.

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

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-BB1.
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
i s 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-BB1 and Shuttle power. Disconnect the
power adapter from the wall outlet receptacle
(if indoors) and disconnect the antenna cable.
d. Plan the routing of the antenna cable to the SIR-BB1
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-BB1, 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-BB1.
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-BB1.
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 Sirius programming
outdoors or within your home.

Maintenance
Periodic Inspection
The SIR-BB1 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 Shuttle 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 SRS/AUX 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-BB1 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.
