Direct adapter split to 2 different radios?

    This is probably an odd question but I'm hoping somebody might be able to comment on it.

    I've currently got my Stiletto 100 car dock installed in a 2002 Peterbilt 357, but will soon be moving it into a 2007 357 for the winter. I would like to be able to play the sirius in 2 different spots, but do not want to spend the money on yet another dock. Of course the first spot is in the driver's cab, and the second is in a body mounted cab where we spend most of our time while working. I know that the body mounted cab will never pick up the signal from a dock (as the docks hardly have a strong enough transmission for clear reception in the driver's cab). I have thought about the possibility of getting a direct adapter, and then some type of splitter that would allow me to run wires to both cd players. To me it seems like a good idea.

    Is there any chance that this would not work well or reduce clarity being that the signal will be going through a splitter and then down 2 wires instead of 1?

    a maybe easier solution would be a strong fm transmitter, this would allow you to keep it docked and transmit a stonger FM signal. As for a splitter i have never seen one, but there might be one out there.

    Thanks for the input. I did some more thinking today and came up with a very easy solution. I am still going to do the direct adapter up front in the driver's cab. In the back, I am going to use the dock from my personal vehicle (since I only ever use it on long trips anyway), buy a new antenna and use the normal household charger to power the dock. Since the cd player has an auxilary input, I can plug into there from the output on the dock using a cord with headphone style jacks on both ends to.

    It can be done cheap, and will allow for clear reception on both radios, and save me a ton of time trying to run wires.
