Factory Sirius Question

Will the factory installed Sirius Antenna work with an aftermarket radio? I have a Kenwood Head Unit I want to install in my truck. It is Sirius capable, and I know that I will need the Sirius tuner. Just curious if I will need to change the antenna as well.

I don't think so. I just took apart my radio and installed a new one. There is no special antenna connector, it's 2 connectors that plug into the back of the radio, that is it!
