The beauty of SiriusXM satellite radio (besides the amazing array of programming, of course) is that you can enjoy it wherever you go. SiriusXM's SXSD2 Portable Speaker Dock lets you enjoy your favorite programs at the park, on the porch, or in any room of your home.
Your favorite SiriusXM programs will sound great, indoors or out.
It's designed to work with a variety of SiriusXM, Sirius, and XM Dock-and-Play radios, including the Onyx Plus and Onyx EZ. You can even connect MP3 players and other audio devices via the aux-in jack (cable sold separately).
The SXSD2's sleek design looks great anywhere, and the included remote control lets you adjust the volume or pause, rewind, and replay live shows without getting up. You can plug it into the nearest AC outlet, or pop in eight "D" batteries and take it with you when you go outdoors.
The concealed fold-up handle and built-in antenna cradle (which also offers cable storage) make it easy to take your tunes from one place to another. Place the built-in antenna on a windowsill when you're indoors, or attach it to the back of the SXSD2 Portable Speaker Dock when you're outdoors.
Your favorite programs will sound great, indoors or out, too. The 2.1 sound system really rocks, with separate tweeters, midrange speakers, and a powerful subwoofer that pumps out some seriously impressive bass response. If you want to listen privately, just plug a set of headphones or earbuds into the front-panel jack.
Note: SiriusXM radio and subscription sold separately.
Plays great with boom box
rwood, Phila Pa
Plays great with boom box
Cons: Doesn't work for car
Much more bass than I expected for a unit this size. Plays plenty loud enough too. Nice compact remote. Antenna cord is quite long giving more versatility for placement. Very much recommended.
Pros: Headphone jack, AUX input jack.
Pros: Sound is very good
Great radio with really good sound. Only the manufacturer doesn't mention the antenna must face south with obstruction. For me that wasn't a problem but was a surprise. Reason for only 4 stars.
Works anywhere & has a auxiliary input as well! Highly recommended!
Pros: Auxiliary Input.
Cons: No dedicated remote storage, but I put it in the battery compartment.
Pros: Easy to use, sound quality
My overall opinion of this product is it did not,live up to expectations. The unit is heavy to carry around and the reception in my area is spotty. The radio is a built in cord wrap for the antenna cable, but no thought was given to additional space to wrap the power cord. When not plugged in the power source is 6 D cell batteries making the unit even heavier. Total usage time on batteries is less than 8 hours. Perhaps later versions will have rechargeable batteries similar to laptops or other portable devices. I would not purchase this unit again nor would I recommend this to others.
Pros: Good sound. The ability to take my Sirius radio with me outside of the vehicle
Cons: Too heavy, usage time while on batteries is less than 8 hours. No place to store and wrap power cord
Given the fact that not all stations have the same quality this unit does quite well. It does have a center bottom mounted sub-woofer which is works well with the stations that have good quality. Takes 4 D cells under each end speaker, however, balances well and is no issue to carry. The little square antenna mounts on top and does grab a signal from inside my 2 story house. I was impressed with that ! All in All a good unit.
Cons: It would be nice if the antenna could rotate while mounted on top the dock. It would make it easier to place the unit and keep everything in one place.
very nice and as described
Would be great if it added more functionality to the radio like more preset stations
I purchased this product for my Wife on our 46th Anniversary. She purchased a new car recently and loved the Serious radio. So I thought a home SeriousXM may bring her pleasure. I was right.
Pros: Easy to use and I can attach her CD player to the unit.
Cons: I had a little trouble attaching the Docking station seating platform. After a hour or so of seeing the message (Antenna cable no connect or damaged I finally realized I did not push the platform down hard enough.
no other portsble radio offers so much- great sound, portability, no commercials
Pros: inside or outside
Fantastic system that can be used anywhere with it's great sounds.
very pleased with the quality,cranked it in the garage and still here it out in the yard
Pros: easy set up
This is a great device with clear tone and loudnes
Pros: Portable, easy to use and great for traveling
Great speaker dock for Sirius Radio. Crutchfield was easy and pleasant to deal with. Arrived ahead of schedule. Would definitely order again. Seamless.
Great product. With a 10 minute phone call to the folks at SirusXM the unit was up and running. Sound is great. Remote works well. My husband loves having this in the garage to listen to while working on his projects
Pros: Great sound, easy to set up and use
Cons: Radio head moves around when pushing the buttons. Needs more support where radio head connects in.
I want to be a happy camper, but since I can not get the system to work after many hours with your tech people and Sirius tech people with only 4 hours of play time. I am ready to send it back. I am going to try a friend to to see if he can help.
Cons: I can not get the antenna to function. So I missed all the Christmas music.
Portable, Great Audio, and volume
You will not go wrong with this unit.
Got unit in 3 days, within 5 min of opening box was listening to "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC. Have had Sirius units in my vehicles since day one. Now I us my vehicle unit at our condo at the river, at home, in my truck, and now out on the patio. Just about to try my old spare antennae to see if they work on new unit. Another plus, the old remote from the car unit Works with the boom box!!!
Pros: Fast set up, nice size
Cons: Need on board storage for AC adapter and remote.

Indoor/Outdoor Antenna: The SiriusXM SXSD2 Portable Speaker Dock includes and indoor/outdoor antenna with a 21' cable.
Note: Once you have chosen a location for the antenna, wrap the excess antenna cable around the storage area at the rear, and plug the antenna cable into the antenna connector at the rear of the Portable Speaker Dock.

Auto Turn-On: Your satellite radio plug & play tuner remembers whether
it was on or off when power to the device is turned off at the time the Portable
Speaker Dock is turned off. Therefore, if your tuner was on at the time you
turned the Portable Speaker Dock off, when
you turn the Portable Speaker Dock back on, the Radio will turn on also. If the tuner was off at the time you turned off the Portable Speaker Dock, you'll need to turn the Radio on also when you turn on the Portable Speaker Dock.

I wanted to listen to Sirius Patriot Channel 125 in my home after being sold on programming by listening to Andrew Wilkow and Mark Levin on my Siriux XM Car radio. [ Kathleen S. Jul 06, 2016 ]
Take the NFL games with me! [ Mike Jul 03, 2016 ]
I recently bought a Sirius XM with speakers and decided it would be easier to just buy a dock. [ Annabelle Apr 28, 2016 ]
price. have dealt with crutchfield in years past. no regets thenand expect the same now. [ daniel Apr 27, 2016 ]
it is compatible with my XM receiver. [ W Apr 24, 2016 ]
On sale at a great price. Specs and reviews were very good. [ Robert Mar 22, 2016 ]

Great Reviews [ Rick Dec 31, 2015 ]
I like the style of this item plus it is the only one in your invemtory. [ Robert Dec 19, 2015 ]
It is the dock I needed. [ DIANE Dec 18, 2015 ]
Love listening to satellite radio in all of vehicles and can't wait to listen to it in our home! [ Brent Dec 11, 2015 ]
I picked this item because of the reviews that I read. [ Frank Dec 07, 2015 ]
Because it was the only XM portable speaker (boombox). However, received it and it is simply FABULOUS! Cannot say enough about the quality of the sound coming out of this boombox. It was a very pleasant surprise and certainly worth the money. [ MARGERY Dec 07, 2015 ]
Probably it will not, unless you can buy an extended antena wire that will allow to run antena unit to a south window or an outside area. [ MARK E May 13, 2016 ]
In the absence of south facing windows, I believe that you would need to run an antenna wire to the exterior of your home in order to access a satellite signal. This boom box functions very well but it does require means to acquire a signal. [ RODOLFO A Apr 28, 2016 ]
Ronald, I have a portable speaker dock and have issues when I'm unable to point antenna to direct sky I've found myself actually running antenna outside of window stapling towards the sky and that was successfully done. I also have sirrius on Internet account which I'm able to listen to with wifi have no issues there plug in to any speaker system with auxiliary or bluetooth doc. [ CYNTHIA Apr 27, 2016 ]
I don't think so unless you can get the antenna outside so it can face the southeast sky to pick up the satelitte. [ JoAnn Apr 27, 2016 ]
I have several satellite radios & they work best with the antenna facing generally south. This unit has a long cable on a detachable antenna, but there is a very long extension cable available. [ John Apr 26, 2016 ]
the unit comes with a detachable antenna with about 10' of lead. You can receive broadcasts only if the city/area in which you live has terrestrial Sirius broadcast in addition to satellite which you can verify through the menu of the portable Sirius dock and play radio or looking up the broadcast area online with Sirius - but terrestrial can be spotty depending upon the time of day, weather, if you're located behind hills, or large buildings, etc. For my garage with no South facing windows, I installed an external antenna (weather / water resistant). It came with a 10' or so lead, so all was needed was 1/4" hole in the ceiling and then through the gable end of the building, mounting, and then sealing up. I had good terrestrial broadcast signal strength in my city, but the outdoor antenna greatly improved the overall voice quality via the greater signal strength and eliminated the nagging very brief - but periodic fading the always seemed to occur at the worst possible time of listening. [ Terry Apr 26, 2016 ]
If you can extend antenna out Window face it to the South it will work [ Stephen Apr 26, 2016 ]
I think it comes with its own remote but the model number on the remote I have that is working every thing (volume and stations) is SXDPR1 it may end with and I it hard to see. [ WAYNE H Jan 26, 2016 ]
All I can say is the model # of the one I got with the unit is SXDPR1. [ David Jan 26, 2016 ]
MY SXSD2 came with a SXDPR1 remote which works fine. [ DENNIS Jan 25, 2016 ]
Mine is an XDRC2 works Great!! [ JOHN Jan 25, 2016 ]
This unit actually includes it. It has an AC power adapter with an attached 5 foot DC cord and a 39" AC power cord. Hope that helps. [ Kenny Jan 11, 2016 ] Staff
This boom box is only compatible with Sirius products. [ howard q. Jun 06, 2015 ]
For details on compatibility 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 info on if the INNO will work, and any additional items you may need. [ Jeff Jun 04, 2015 ] Staff
Sorry, this was a gift to my brother, so I don't know anything about it. [ denise Mar 03, 2015 ]
I bought it for my mother...she loves it....and as I recall...you can use batteries...but, it is a plug in... It can also be used indoors without an outside antennae... [ Gloria Mar 03, 2015 ]
As long as the receiver part is near a window it works perfectly, we have a large metal building. If we did not have windows it would not have worked. [ JOHN Jan 25, 2016 ]
I've not had much luck picking up signal inside unless I can get the antenna near a window. [ Joseph Sep 08, 2014 ]
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy Sep 08, 2014 ] Staff
