Window tint HD radio reception interference.

Has anyone that has tinted their windows experienced a degredation in hd radio sound quality? Just wondering if the tint interferes in anyway.

Thanks

Use non metallic film or you'll have some signal degradation. Its most notable on AM, but can impact FM performance as well.

There's plenty of extruded and ceramic films today that work just as well as metallic films.

Yea sir, rear glass the top 3-4 lines are usually the radio.

Good luck, let us know what brand and type of tint you use.
