Aftermarket sirius/xm question.

I recently bought a 12 DCSB with a non JBL radio with bluetooth and XM with steering wheel controls. I am in the market for a new reciver. I have purchased Kicker 6x9's/6.5's, stinger amp install kit, 2012 DD metra dash kit with harness and a steering wheel interface. I will be hooking the HU up to a slightly old bazooka 4ch amp. I am wanting to purchase a nav unit with sirius/xm capability. Will I be able to use the factory xm antenna (shark fin) or will I have to run one of those magnetic ones that come with the new HU? The HU's I am considering are the Pioneer AVIC-X940BT and the Kenwood DNX6180. Any info will help out. My goal is to eventually purchase a dual 10" box with kicker subs and run all speakers/subs off of one Kicker 5ch.

I had to purchase this shark fin adapter to enable mine. Hooked it up behind the kick panel on the drivers side. Just not sure it will work on your '12. May contact them and ask.

Also, do you know if there is a way to make the factory MIC work with a aftermarket bluetooth capable HU?

Good luck with this one. I tore it all apart to see if I could and I can't find an option.

The mic's are pretty easy to hid for aftermarket HU's
