I tried the radio thing. I decided to install a car stereo and sattellite radio I had hanging around on my spare parts shelf. I tried to hook up headphones to the car stereo through the RCA out ports. I got it all to work, but with the motor running it wasnt loud enough. I removed the car stereo and tried my Radio Shack AM-FM-WX radio with cheap noise cancelling headphones and it works pretty good. The Radio Shack radio has enough power to drive the headphones and picks up the Sirius radio pretty good! I can also hook up the Ipod through the Radio to boost the power to the headphones. Everything sounds OK, not great, just OK, so I am sure that I will spend some time just listening to the diesel engine as well.

I just purchased a new car with the XM radio included. This gives me a spare XM receiver. I have the DELPHI Skyhi portable that I move from car to house. Now I want to install it in my X748. It transmits a FM signal and I hope to use a headphone radio with built in FM. It is 18 outside today so not happening today.

I tried the iPod once on my 4410 but the noise was too much. This should be a easy install It is small

A simple solution to the volume issue is to take the speakers from a cheap pair of headphones and mount them in a pair of earmuff style hearing protection. Or use earbud headphones with muffs over top.
