Filter for Sirius/XM Engine Noise ?

I have installed a Sirius/XM receiver in our Endeavor DP. I hard wired the receiver into our radio and have been happy with the installation excepting that we are getting a slight but noticeable engine noise from the 12 v power when on the road. I ran a 12 v feed from a splice from the cigarette lighter behind the dash to the Sirius receiver. I understand to remove the engine noise I need a filter on the 12 v feed.

I didn't know there was ignition noise in a diesel as there is no "spark" but you can sure hear it "faintly" but enough to make me want to get rid of it. I think I just need to install a filter on the 12 v input line to the receiver. Anyone know the filter that will alleviate this engine noise and where I might obtain one ?

Found the noise filter that I think will do the trick.

The PIE 5 amp should do the trick and not a bad price. You hit the nail on the head wrt the noise on the 12v. The noise comes from the inverter/converter. I have the XPress RC XM receiver and had to do the same thing. Turning off the inv/con will stop the noise but not a good idea to shut it off if you have a bad memory like I do. I kept forgetting to turn it back on.
