What do you guys know about this??
I am in the same boat, our Bose systems while not a bad radio it was the worst design I have ever seen.
The rear antenna interface does not allow for a conventional antenna plug so the only solution is to get behind the dash, find the antenna coax and cut new fittings into it, a female adapter on one side and male on the other side, this will allow access to the FM input of the radio for devices that use FM modulators such as Satelite receivers, CD changers etc.
You can find these antenna fittings at Radio Shack or other electronic parts stores, I have not done it yet but I plan on it soon as I would like to install either a CD changer or a hard drive player for MP3'* myself.
