Our take on the SiriusXM Onyx Plus

by Jon Paulette
SiriusXM

SiriusXM radio for the road

The Onyx Plus Dock & Play satellite radio gives you everything SiriusXM has to offer in a compact, portable package. You'll also get the accessories you'll need for installation in your car — a car cradle and antenna, dash and vent mounts, and a cable to connect to your car radio's auxiliary input. If your car's radio doesn't have an aux input, the included SiriusXM PowerConnect™ system will deliver clear sound through your vehicle's FM radio. If you have an older car, the Onyx will also work with a cassette adapter (not included).

Everything about the Onyx Plus is designed to help you get the most out of your satellite radio subscription. From the big control knob to the vivid color display to the high-tech features, this Dock & Play radio is made to make your favorite SiriusXM programming even more enjoyable. The Onyx Plus also gives you even more programming, with available access to SiriusXM Xtra, which gives you 20 additional music, sports, and entertainment channels, plus SiriusXM Latino, a collection of Spanish-language channels.

Check out the awesome channel selection from SIRIUS/XM

What you like, the way you like it

You can view program and channel information on the color display, along with great graphics like channel logos and album art. With TuneStart, you can start a song from the beginning, while TuneMix lets you combine your favorite channels into a music channel that's uniquely yours. If you missed something (or simply want to hear it again), you can pause, rewind, and replay on your favorite channels for up to 30 minutes. You can also use TuneScan™ to scan and select songs you've already played on your favorite channels.

If you're switching back between two shows (music and a sporting event, for example), you can use the One-Touch Jump™ feature to jump back to the previous channel. If you're a sports fan, you'll never miss a score with the Sports Ticker. And you can always access weather and traffic for the city of your choice with the press of a button.

Note: A subscription is required and sold separately by SiriusXM. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Hawaii or U.S. territories. Limited service available in Alaska and Puerto Rico.

Vehicle Kit

Vehicle Dock: The SiriusXM onyX Plus satellite radio receiver comes supplied with a vehicle dock which allows you to listen to SiriusXM Satellite Radio in your vehicle. The vehicle dock has color-coded connectors to assist you in connecting the cables to the correct connector. The vehicle dock also has a rear-panel wire-guide that can help you organize the cables and wires connected to the dock. The SiriusXM onyX Plus Satellite Radio receiver's vehicle dock provides three connection options to transfer SiriusXM Satellite Radio audio to your vehicle's audio system.

  • PowerConnect: The SiriusXM onyX Plus Satellite Radio receiver comes supplied with the PowerConnect FM transmitter and cigarette lighter adapter which allows the XM Satellite Radio receiver to wirelessly transmit audio to your vehicle's in-dash headunit over and FM frequency. You can choose from any FM frequency between: 88.1 and 107.9 MHz. You can store up to 5 FM stations so you can quickly access the stations which give you the best audio reception when using the PowerConnect. The PowerConnect FM transmitter and cigarette lighter adapter simply plugs into the power port of the included vehicle dock and the cigarette lighter or 12-volt accessory port of your vehicle.
  • Auxiliary: The SiriusXM onyX Plus Satellite Radio receiver's vehicle dock has a minijack audio output (3.5mm) to connect the unit directly to your in-dash headunit's auxiliary input (if applicable), using the supplied stereo minijack cable.

  • FM Direct (optional): The FM Direct Adaptor (607FMDA25, sold separately) connects directly in-line with your vehicle's existing AM/FM antenna input (motorola) and the XM Satellite receiver's vehicle dock FM output (2.5mm). This optimizes the XM receiver's built-in FM modulator to your vehicle's radio, especially in regions with a high density of FM radio stations and few open FM channels.

Magnetic Antenna: The unit comes supplied with a magnetic antenna that is designed to be run outside of the vehicle and placed on the roof of your vehicle. The magnetic antenna will adhere to your vehicle's sheet metal.

My husband loves his new satelitte radio I got him for his truck. He is often out of town driving and his is a great way for him to keep up with all the sports. Also, I listen to the satellite connection via my tablet when I am at work. So, the cost is really great!
Pros:
-easy to use -you can use the service via a tablet when you don't have access to the radio -easy to install
Cons:

Exactly What I Was Looking For

Written By namgew, Fairfield, OH on Friday, August 22, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This unit has some really nice features and keeps a steady signal in my area. I had previously considered and even tested using my SmartPhone with the SiriusXM app and just having the Internet only access. However, I don't have an unlimited data plan, so going over my data limit was a concern. Also, the data signal didn't stay consistent enough. When it switched from 4G to 3G or 1G, the signal would pause or get lost all together. The app is not as feature rich as this unit. Also, it frees up my phone if I want to use it for navigation. I'm anxious to try this on an extended trip to see how it does over a long distance. I originally hooked up through the cassette play, but switched over the FM signal. I haven't had any problems with having to change FM frequencies and the sound is pretty clear with no interference. The reason for transmitting versus wire was to avoid having another wire visible.
Pros:
20 station presets, signal reliability and audio quality, set up was easy.
Cons:
Channel navigation is a little cumbersome. I don't know my channel numbers yet to be able to jump right to the channel I want when I'm looking for talk, or sports channels. More of a wish list and probably more a feature from SiriusXM than the unit is to have lyrics display. Lastly, the mounting bracket must be missing something because I couldn't get it to tighten. Wen to the hardware store and got a rubber grommet to press against the base to hold it in place.

A perfect upgrade -- better than what came with the car!

Written By BillS, Washington, DC on Saturday, July 05, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this to replace an older receiver that was installed in my car. I was having problems with the one that was installed, so I decided to replace the whole thing. Turns out that it was only the antenna that was bad in my existing installation, but I was so happy with the new receiver that I decided to keep it anyway!

One of my favorite features of the Audiovox was the TuneSelect feature, where the receiver alerts me if one of my favorite artists or songs is playing on another channel. The Onyx plus has this feature, but also brings it to a new level. The receiver will record the audio from several of your favorite channels simultaneously. If you put it into the T-Mix mode, you can then skip through all of the songs it's recorded, and listen to the ones you like. Similarly, if you catch the end of a song you like when you switch to a station, you just have to hit the rewind button and can start it over from the beginning.

This is also capable of listening to the new 2.0 channels (up in the 300's) which adds a few more stations to the mix.

My wife has a built in factory receiver in her car, and after driving in my car, she's jealous of mine!

The only thing I miss about my old Audiovox receiver is that it had an AUX input on the side of it. So if I wanted to plug my phone into the stereo (either for hands free calls through the cars speakers, or to listen to audio through my phone) I would do it there. Now I have to use a cassette adapter (factory radio)
Pros:
TuneSelect and T-Mix feaures are must!
Cons:
- I've had the receiver lock up twice while using it. Both times have been when the tune select feature finds a song I like. Unplugging the power and then plugging it back in fixed it both times. - No AUX input

Check what programming you want beofre purchasing

Written By Wouldn't you like to know, Detroit, Michigan on Sunday, May 18, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
For the price it is worth it. However, watch out thet this is an "XM" radio...Even though it's all one company "SiriusXM". Because its an XM radio rather than a Sirius radio means you have to purchase the premium lineup @ $14 a month to receive Howard Stern. If you buy a Sirius radio you get a cheaper premium lineup for $10. The radio itself is good. Good display. Good Sound quality. The fm transmitter is ok...they aren't as strong as a few years ago. For the price it's worth it.
Pros:
Price, great display, Good sound quality, has the buffering option
Cons:
No remote, antenna isn't as good as the flat wider antenna that come with other radios, forced into a premium plan for channels I want

Crutchfield rules

Written By dlizotte, Syracuse, NY on Thursday, April 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Took me many years, but I finally got sold on satellite radio. This particular unit really enhances your SiriusXM experience with this whole TuneMix feature they added. Basically from the moment you turn the radio on it begins recording up to 18 of your preset stations and jumps from song to song between them. If you don't like a song you can skip it... Pretty awesome, and allows them to compete with other services like Pandora and the like.

Not that any of those other services can really compete with amount of programming SXM has. Music, comedy, talk AND sports. I dunno, I sound like a sales person but I promise I'm not!

Anyway, Crutchfield is really what sold me on this. There were some sweet rebates, and they were very helpful with my various questions. Plus free fast shipping. I remember my father getting the catalog and ordering from them in the 80s. Proud to be keeping the tradition alive.
Pros:
Awesome unit, great service, Crutchfield's customer service and prices
Cons:
Unit doesn't sound as good as if you pay to enable it in your xm ready vehicle, but if this is your only option like me then you'll love it

2 questions already asked

How easy is it to install the antenna to the outside of the car? [ Frances  Jun 30, 2014 ]
7 answers
  • Depends on where you wanna mount it. Some people just put it outside of their driver's side door each time they use it. I opted to mount it on the back of the roof right above the back windshield, running the cable in through the trunk (as explained in the user's manual). I used a small flat screwdriver and tucked the cable in as I went, and it actually turned out really well and was pretty easy. As far as the antenna itself, the magnet is SO strong that it won't have any issue mounting anywhere on the roof and staying [ Darian   Jul 01, 2014 ]
  • It's easy place the antenna on the of the roof near the top of the windshield. Center it and tuck the wire underneath the wind shield strip and work your way down and inside the vehicle . Plug into dock and roll up the access wire and zip tie it and hide it out of the way, maybe under the dashboard .one thing to keep in mind is .. If you have a compass on your riearview mirror, the strong magnet in the antenna will effect the compass. I found that out when my compass started reading random directions when I first Iinstalled the my antenna. So I repositioned it to the side , on top of the door. And it wiotks. I hope this helps. [ Nathaniel   Jun 30, 2014 ]
  • We didn't install it outside (it is a company car and I didn't want to risk any damage). The antenna is on the dashboard and gets reasonably good reception. [ JANICE L   Jun 30, 2014 ]
  • The antenna is just a small box not much more than 1" X 1" with a long wire (approx. 20 ft. of wire) that plugs into the receiver. The box is magnetic and mounts on any surface that points skyward. You merely route the wire somewhere that it can be hidden and run it through a door or hatch opening where there is a soft foam gasket and stick the antenna to the car. Hardest part of the antenna install is finding somewhere to hide all the extra wire. Good luck and enjoy! [ JONATHAN   Jun 30, 2014 ]
  • I made an effort top completely hide the antenna wire, this envolved some time. I would estimate it took about 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour. I decided to have the controls located in the center consel, also hidden from normal view. I snaked the wire under the carpeting and drilled a small hole in the bottom of the consel to bring the antenna wire in. Very happy with reception and the advise on purchasing the Sirius XM Onyx Plus from the represenative, Ethan, I spoke to prior to the purchase. [ Dennis   Jun 30, 2014 ]
  • It's relatively easy. The antenna attaches magnetically, can be removed, and doesn't move around while driving. The part that can be tricky is running the cable from the antenna into your car. Around the windshield you can tuck it under the weather stripping. I used the seam between the windshield pillar and the fender to hide it, then ran it down the inside front of the door cavity, behind the hinges, then under the door sill, under the drivers seat, then tucked up under the bottom of the center console, and up into the dash to my stereo. It's hidden and out of the way, but did take some time to get configured in easy that I was happy with. [ AARON   Jun 30, 2014 ]
  • Depends on the type of car and where you mount it. I mounted mine on the back of the roof. I have a Kia SUV. Had to remove some pieces to hide the wiring. Maybe 20 minutes of work. [ JOHN   Jun 30, 2014 ]
Is this radio compatible with the factory standard equipment radio inmy 2004 Lincoln Signature Town Car? [ Bruce  Apr 12, 2014 ]

  • For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy Staff  Apr 13, 2014 ]
