There are no ferrite cores installed on any of the stereo, if I recall correctly.

Yes it should be shielded. Mine just has a thin piece of ordinary wire for an antenna.

So what you do is take both the live and ground wire, pass them through the hole in the middle of the ferrite, then wrap them several times around the ferrite.
