    Awesome room filling sound system for SiriusXM!

    Best sounding system for satellite radio I've ever used. Looks and sounds great sitting on a shelf under my TV. I've been a Sirius sub for over 10 years. This unit is way better than the older boomboxes. It can pump out the tunes with surprising deep bass and good mid and high range. The speakers are almost too high-end for satellite radio, as some channels are more compressed sounding than others and more noticeable. I use this speaker dock with the Onyx Plus, which can also pickup the new xtra channels in the 300s. The new xtra channels sound even clearer. You can also hookup your phone, tablet or TV using the front 3.5mm AUX input. I am using this speaker dock on a TV shelf in a 16'x15' bedroom and easily fills the room with awesome sounding music. It also doubles as a sound dock for my flat screen tv. TV shows and movies also sound great. I still can't believe the amount of bass that comes out of this dock. if you own a compatible SiriusXM radio this speaker dock is a must have!

    great product that did not work for me

    I have had satellite radio since the beginning of XM. I use to have the old Delphi skyfi model with the portable boombox for it. I never had any trouble with that boombox until it wore out. Now I have the Onyx Plus, so I finally bought this boombox. My first one I bought powered up but did not power the tuner and my tuner worked fine in my car kit. I exchanged it and the 2nd one work for a week then after work I turned it on and the tuner did not power on. When I called Sirius-xm they could help and didn't understand why. All they thought to do was refresh the signal, which doesn't help if the tuner is not on. I exchanged it a 3rd time, but this time it acted like the 1st one, it powered on but didn't power the tuner. My cell plugged in the aux jack work fine but my tuner didn't. I tried a 4th time but this time I tried it in the store and still nothing. the boombox powered up but would not turn on the tuner which worked fin in my car kit. It made crackling noise but nothing happened. I am going to email Sirius-xm to complain and see what they say. I hope something comes of it and I get a working one soon.

    I was more than happy with the home docking unit but I must say I wasn't happy with the customer service (CS) when I tried to reactivate my newest plug and play. In late 2016, my home was broken into and my Sirius was stolen. I finally got around to getting a new radio in 2018 and when I tried to activate it, CS advised me it would cost me a monthly fee to activate. I advised that I was a LIFETIME subscriber since the early 2000's. They tried to tell me they didn't have lifetime subscriptions any longer and I told them I wasn't trying to get it but already HAD it. After about an hour on the phone and speaking with someone In the Philippines, I was transferred to an American rep and had this corrected. It was a frustrating experience but one that's resolved and happy to listen to commercial free radio again. The home unit has a wonderful sound and I couldn't be happier with the items results.

    We grew tired of the tablets or phones running through a Bluetooth speaker and they run out of battery power. We simply plug the Sirius Onyx player we installed with a car dock and we’re ready to go. The sound from the speakers is far better than we expected and the auxiliary input jack still provides an open for us to use our tablets if we want to play or stream from other sources. The wired antenna is long enough to move above our deck and grab a strong signal and still have a the speakers out of the way. Finally the wireless remote works great and allows changing channels rewind etc and adjusting volume a breeze.

    Good sound but the XM radio did not work. I opened a support case with SiriusXM and they said that they would ship a new one. I waited a couple of weeks but it never came. I called again and they said that they did not have a record of my support case. I was fed up because I had paid my bill but couldn't possibly use the service. I asked to stop service and they gave me the run around and we got disconnected. I called again to cancel service and after 30 minutes of them trying to get me to extend service they finally gave up on me and closed my account. Now I have a radio that I cannot use for anything.

    Better than expected.

    This unit has some weight for it's size (which I like#. With the antenna attached to the top, it will not receive a signal in the house. If you put the antenna in the window, #any window in my house) it works great. It has an external ac to dc converter box mid way in the power cord. It would be nice to have that built into the dock. Also, it would be nice to have a built in rechargeable battery. Eight D size batteries are to expensive to toss after only eight hours of use. The sound is great, better than expected.

    Must have for Sirius owners

    If you have a portable Sirius unit this is a must have addition. I use the portable unit in my car but with the boom box you can take Sirius anywhere. Use it in the yard, garage and deck. It's a battery hog so I rarely use it anywhere without ac power available. Sound is fairly good and loud enough. It's not audiophile quality but it gets the job done. Bass is also pretty good with the built in sub woofer. For the price (on sale). You can't beat it. I was replacing an older model that still works but I keep that one in the garage where I don't worry about it getting dirty on dinged

    Great Speaker Dock

    I basically purchased this item so I would not have to continue to use the small portable wireless speakers anymore. I could not stand all the wire tangling all over the place, plus I always had to charge when ever I needed to use it. This portable speaker dock works perfectly no extra wires and no recharging necessary. Also the sound is great and I love the fact that I can carry out whenever I need music outside any where. Works great outside any where. I love it. Best purchase. Very Happy

    Other that the fact that the free shipping supplier was Fedex, who left my radio out in the rain, even though I have a covered porch. The product itself sounds great, and I particulary like the new updated version. The ease of installing and removing my sirius radio into the docking station, and the new power button. The sound quality is very good as well.

    I have been a SiriusXM subscriber for 6 years. Albeit, the subscription was limited to my vehicle. This product allows me enjoy satellite radio in my truck then bring the receiver into my home and plug it into dock station and continue listening. The sound from the docking station speakers is truly remarkable. I would strongly urge you to watch one or more of the many YouTube videos on vehicle installation. Over all I would recommend this product, without hesitation.

    Antenna port issues

    Great sound (When you can get signal). We could only get signal outside in non wooded areas. We could NOTl listen to our Xm INSIDE (which was exactly half the reason we got it) At the back of the unit is a power port and antenna port. Weird issues with the antenna port and error messages on the unit saying the antenna port is unplugged or damaged. This was after 3 times (lite use) and then 1 time (lite use) after I returned first one. I would not suggest this unit to my friends.

    Reminiscent of a 70's boom box

    My husband bought me the radio for Christmas without realizing a speaker was needed to play it. I couldn't figure out what to do except buy this piece of equipment which is just like an old boom box. I didn't realize it works like a satellite dish and needs to have a wire out the window to get reception. Sirius should certainly be able to come up with better way. Now I realize I can just pay to stream live on my phone anytime, no radio or speakers needed. I sure do like listening to Sirius XM Radio though!

    I had a question before this was bought but couldn't get a straight answer until I made the purchase myself. My wife bought me a portable radio because I always miss my favorite show and they no longer have the carry radio. She bought the home and car kit because we didn't know that if you bought the speaker, you don't need the home kit. The speaker kit has everything the home kit has plus the speaker. Even reading the box in the store doesn't explain it.

    Bad Battery Life

    No need for this if you have an Echo device...important since the main problem is that the antenna needs to be exposed outdoors, which is a hassle. The only reason for this device is to go portable with Sirius...again you can achieve this with a phone app! And here's the rub, the batteries to do such (like for going to the beach) get zapped way way way too soon!

    I've had satellite for years and struggled with moving the equipment between my car and home. Worked great in the car, but I had trouble getting good sound quality from a standard radio or stereo. Since purchasing the speaker dock I've not had one instance of "searching for signal" - so no gaps in listening and the sound quality is great. I'd recommend this for anyone with satellite!

    with two tweeters, two midrange speakers and a dedicated sub woofer, it sounds great. I had it from out of the box, to up and running in less than 3 minutes. take your time to set uo the antenna and use the signal meter to get a great alignment and you will love it too. Bonus: the headphone jack is great, i plug in my beats by Dre headphones at night so i do not bother anyone :-)

    This is the perfect portable satellite/boom box/job site radio. I have bought countless Bluetooth/portable speakers and this by far sounds amazing. It even has a down firing subwoofer giving it real bass. The sound is just amazing, like i said I’ve purchased numerous portable speakers before and this by far beats them all. It even comes with a remote. There is a AUX input also.

    I purchased this unit with a Sirius XM radio. I really enjoyed the sound from these speakers. Not the best but it's pretty good for the price I paid. I discovered that I can use the Sirius app within my Roku player and listen to the music through my sound bar so I am returning this only because I really don't need it, however I highly recommend this dock for someone who doesn't have access to the app.

    I wanted to use around the home that is what I told the salesman. I Have SirisXM in my car and love it. I also asked if I could use my sirisXM account I have with my car and not have to pay for another account. I found out after I purchased these 2 items nothing was true. I have to attach an antenna in view of sky. NOT HAPPY

    The speaker dock is exactly what the desciption says it is. Great quality with rich sound. Overall the antenna does a great job bringing Serius Xm signal both while outside and inside. Best to be near a window inside. Quite compact with antenna cable coiled and tucked away. Seldom have to move antenna from the dock. Have not yet used with batteries.
