The Whole House transmtter is kinda weak. Remember line of site, make sure the antenna is as high as possible and preferrably near an exterior wall or window. Also supposedly adding about 110 inches (depending on frequency u are using) of wire helps a lot. I attached an antenna from a stereoreceiver to mine and it worked out ok. Other than that look into a Ramsey or other more powerful transmitter.

Review written by Carrollights from Wheeling, WV
I purchased this unit 2 years ago, I use it to broadcast my Holiday Light display this will be my 3rd year using this unit. It has clean audio quality and with PLL you can mount this unit outside (in a weather proof case) the transmitter will stay locked on the frequency you select. and mounting this unit outside gets maximum signal for a .2 watt FM modulator (FCC Legal)

I still highly recommend this unit, and for $34.99 and cheaper if you look for a better price, I did find one at millionbuy.com for $25.95

Mine is mounted outside in a LOR PC enclosure case with my CCR controller
and it covers 1 block solid signal and 2 blocks sporadic

And one thing to remember is sound quality, I use the Breakaway Live processor It has low latency so its real time, very little delay so the audio is still synched with your lights, and it is very easy to setup and use and all your audio from all your sequences will have the same loudness. I am thinking of doing another post just on sound processing
