Default 2013 Sirius radio installation

Good afternoon all!
I purchased a used 2013 2.5i with a 6sp MT and am very happy with it. I happen to have the Sirius SCC1 unit that was going to be installed in another car but never was. I'd like to know if this unit will work on this vehicle. The current radio is the 4 speaker, non-nav unit.

I have read a lot of the posts here about sat radio, but didn't find any with my year or configuration. Any thoughts or directions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Unless you have the module that is OEM specific for our outbacks, you will need a control module like this ( Kenwood KOS-A300 Factory Radio Upgrade System Add Kenwood gear to your factory stereo at Crutchfield.com )

I used this and it works perfectly, though it is not a simple plug-and-play job. Other units are RF transmitted and this allows you to use AUX input.

Really happy with it, the second screen fits nicely above cig lighter in dash, and the controller fits well in center armrest. Will load pics of mine later to show it .

I am looking forward to seeing it! Right now I have my head unit sitting in the console between the seats. It works, but isn't very professional.

Heres an older pic form my original post


The control knob is now in the center console box, felt a little clunky where I had first connected it.

Here is the rest:
