I actually got one on purpose because I unfortunately dont have a headunit with an aux in, so I play my ipod thru one of those FM transmitters, which uses a station with poor signal to play the ipod thru the car....so yes, they do give poor reception.

I have the Perrin 2" and the FM reception is fine, maybe even better than stock, but I don't get any AM reception at all (not sure if thats the antennas or Alpine decks fault).

I went from stock to the perrin 2" and my reception got noticably worse. I cant pick up some radio stations well anymore. I still dont mind it though, I would go with the 4" if I could do it again
