    Poor fm reception, is there some sort of good booster?

    I just put a new head unit in my truck, and I'm not getting very good fm reception. I've had 3 different units in the time I've owned the truck. Never had great reception, but for some reason, since I put this last head unit in, it's worse.


    Is there anything available to purchase and install that will help me get a better fm signal? Crutchfield sells some sort of signal booster gizmo, but it has very poor reviews, so is there anything decent out there?

    kenwood head unit
    jl audio slash 300/4
    focal 130 a1 components in front, infinity kappa 6x8 coax in rear door
    jl audio 8w1v2 8" sub

    they all **** really , but my brother seemed to have good results with one a few years back. He was running a panasonic HU and it would flutter in and out of stereo when you drove , he put that booster in and it picked up decently. I have a broken power antenna on my buick so i have just given up on FM. Satellite is the way to go. Plus most corporate radio ***** these days anyhow.
