" an outside Sirius antenna. A caveat is that the wife doesn't want ANY equipment sitting outside of a closed stereo type cabinet so is what I'm asking possible? Thanks for helping this old guy that doesn't understand how this all works.
If you have SIRIUS ALL ACCESS, then you should have access to the SIRIUSXM APP, if you have a smart phone/IPAD/Tablet from Android or AMAZON/ROKU/Amazon FireTV/AppleTV. The builder won't have to do anything special, and they know it. Don't let them talk you into an added expense you don't need.
Also, if you try to add another radio you buy, SIRIUSXM will charge you a separate/monthly fee for that radio. The APP is the best route to go.
If you do, it is so simple to use SIRIUSXM(or any other app on the system), it will be ridiculous. Especially if the new setup has BLUE TOOTH built into it, since every smartphone made in the last 6-7 years has some form of blue tooth built into it.
And even if you don't have bluetooth, adding blue tooth adapter to a stereo system is simple, and clean.
Just PM me and I can walk/talk you through it. Others may have a setup I have not thought of, but this seems like the simplest.
