Do rav4s have an amplified antenna? I got a kenwood aftermarket system and after the install FM reception sucks with static on most channels. on another forum it was suggested that the installer didn't hook up the amplifier as toyotas are known for amplified antennas. Has anyone heard of this ?

Have no idea, but.... The FM reception on my daughter's new 05 RAV4 is freaking awesome. We found FM channels that we never knew existed in the PGH area. Far better reception than my 99 Maxima with the longish power antenna, or the Cavilier we traded in for the RAV.
