View Full Version : Satellite Radio reception - through plastic?

04-21-2010, 01:36 PM
I went to Best Buy and talked to one of their auto-radio installers. I am planning to add a newer XM portable-cat unit (the XM Onyx) and he claims you can place the antenna under plastic just below the windshield, that the antenna can 'see' through plastic. I've never heard of this before.....

Edit - I did find other forums where they all say the signal does pass through plastic. That would be great since it's all hidden under-dash.

I've had one hidden inside the dash with no problems.
