theres a 3.5mm outlet on the side of the xm that you can send the audio thru
i got a 3.5 to RCA adaptor but when i plug it into the back of my head unit, it only plays thru the rear speakers. how do i get it to play thru all six. is this possible.

Pioneer head units don't have aux inputs unless you use a P-bus adapter. You're plugging your XM into the head unit's rear output. I'd unplug it before you damage something.

bingo, if you plugged it into your rca outputs, you are playing it backwards through the deck. you need:http://www.pioneerusa.com/pna/product/album/0,,2076_4109,00.html use either the cd-rb10, or cd rb-20 and it will run in through your aux it. You may need to turn the aux in "on" in the setup menu for it to work. If you want a cd-rb10, I have one I will sell for $35 shipped, as I bought the ipod controller, I don't need it anymore.
