    I already have an alpine 9833 receiver in my car... what else would I need to get XM or Sirius?

    you can get sirius and xm for the alpine. you'll need the tuner/adaptor and an antenna

    with xm you can get away with mounting it on the dash I would recommend that with sirius.

    my sirius is in the back window of my firebird on a custom mount (its mounted to the hatch). don't have any huge problems. every now and then it will cut out under a bunch of trees.
