Bring it all back home

The Onyx Plus Dock & Play satellite radio brings you SiriusXM programming in a compact, portable package that comes with everything you need to listen to your favorite channels in your den or at your desk. The package includes a docking cradle for connecting to your home stereo, an antenna for picking up the satellite radio signal, and a miniplug-to-RCA audio cable. You also get a handy remote that lets you control the action.

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, it's all about making your favorite SiriusXM programming even more enjoyable. 

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.

[ Krissy  Oct 11, 2019 ]  Staff
I am considering a home satellite system to mate with a home, AM/FM stereo system. I live in a fairly remote area. Is there a home AM/FM stereo receiver/tuner that a Sirius satellite system pairs with well and easily? Do you have any recommendations for such a sytem? Also, I am trying to keep the cost down.
[ Robert  Jul 26, 2019 ]
1 answer
Hi Robert! Thank you for your question! The XM Home Kits are pretty universal, and will connect up to any home stereo receiver. If you do run into problems with reception, we do offer some additional XM antennae for the home that could be a solution for you should you need to go that route. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, if you'd like some more info!
[ Jess  Aug 13, 2019 ]  Staff
Does this radio have AM and FM stations? Operate on batteries and a electrical cord? With excellent sound.
[ Annette  Dec 05, 2017 ]
2 answers
This radio is just the head unit. It has no audio capabilities without external speakers. Does not work off batteries alone.
[ ALEXANDER  Dec 05, 2017 ]
IIt does not have AM capability and the FM is done through the stereo it is hooked up to. It is hooked up through the power port in the car or an AC adapter if you have the home docking station. Sound will be as good as the stereo you have it hooked up to.
[ Matthew  Dec 05, 2017 ]
Can I plug in a headphone jack to listen on my headphones?
[ Elizabeth  Mar 30, 2017 ]
1 answer
Your success at direct earphone feed may depend on the impedance and sensitivity of the earphones. My Serius XM Onyx audio output is normally connected to the preamp of a hi-fi system. I just tested with a Grado Prestige series SR125 headphone pair and the audio output was plenty loud enough.
[ KIRBY A.  Apr 01, 2017 ]
how does the onyx streaming rate compare with Pandora on my Onkyo N609?
[ Lester  Mar 16, 2016 ]
2 answers
No comparison! The sirius xm onyx plus is fast, clear and remarkably efficient! This system us by far a great deal from Crutchfield
[ JAMES  Mar 16, 2016 ]
Sorry, I bought the radio for my brother, who uses it mainly to listen to news stations.
[ Guest  Mar 16, 2016 ]
Can the antenna be mounted outside on a roof facing south? Weather proof?
[ Hank  Mar 07, 2016 ]
4 answers
If you're asking for automotive purposes, yes! The car "antenna" is a mag-mount making placing a breeze. If it's for a home kit, I don't believe the antenna that comes with is meant to be outside. However, I think there are outdoor options.
[ MIKE A  Mar 16, 2016 ]
I' m not sure what you mean about south. But yes the antenna works best on top of your roof and it is weather proof
[ RICH  Mar 10, 2016 ]
Yes we do it all the time. You can buy a cable splitter and run up to three receivers off one antenna.
[ DAVE  Mar 08, 2016 ]
After learning the hard way several times with no help from the people at SiriusXM, if you have a receiver that originated from the Sirius company, ie, the Starmate line, it must face north. (Towards Minneapolis) If you have a receiver that originated from the XM business, you would aim it south. As far as weather proof, I have had my antennae mounted outside for 10 years in Omaha NE and no problems other than the infrequent weather interrupts.
[ JAMISON P  Mar 07, 2016 ]
can it also work in a vehical with the use of a cigarette lighter power plug ?

Yes, the SiriusXM Onyx Plus also has a version that includes the vehicle installation kit which you can view on our website here: The vehicle kit includes an FM transmitter/power adapter that you can plug into a cigarette lighter port in your car. My Bio:

will this fit into my boombox that I have for my Delphi skyfi?
[ Bud  Dec 26, 2015 ]

It will not work with the SKYFI boombox. You must get the SXSD2 boombox for this tuner.
[ Paul  Dec 28, 2015 ]  Staff
What is the battery life?
[ R E.  Jul 08, 2015 ]
4 answers
It is not battery powered but instead comes with an ac adapter to plug into your receiver or an outlet.
[ JAMISON P  Jul 12, 2015 ]
Sorry, I have no idea, since mine is always plugged in.
[ MICHAEL  Jul 09, 2015 ]
None. It doesn't run on batteries. You have to plug it in to an electrical outlet or the cigarette plug in the car.
[ Amanda  Jul 09, 2015 ]
We use ours in our house on 110 and in our rv on cd plug in
[ RICH  Jul 09, 2015 ]
What do I use for speakers?
[ Tony  Feb 24, 2015 ]
6 answers
Hi Tony V. Rich here. In our house I use Bose cube speakers. And in our RV I use Boston acoustics speakers. And they all came from crutchfield. I hope that helps.
[ RICH  Feb 26, 2015 ]
There is a speaker jack on the back of the unit. You can use any speakers with a mini-jack. Or,I jacked mine to my tuner-amp and play it through my Bose system. The instructions for hookup to amp say to use the "tape" input. That way the jacks work. Simple. Sounds great.
[ Burt  Feb 25, 2015 ]
[ R  Feb 25, 2015 ]
You connect speakers via the audio input which is in the back of the cradle. If you have a home stereo with an auxiliary input, get a RCA audio cable and connect it that way. If you have portable speakers with a 3.5 mm input, you can plug that into the back of the unit. In the car, you can listen to it through FM radio, a cassette adapter if your radio has a cassette player or through the auxiliary input if your car has an auxiliary input (granted you have an audio cable). RCA and audio cables are cheap.
[ Amanda  Feb 25, 2015 ]
Sorry but I had to return the unit as I was unable to get reception.
[ DUANE R  Feb 25, 2015 ]
I run mine to an auxiliary jack on my receiver and play it through my stereo.
[ MICHAEL  Feb 25, 2015 ]
Will the SIRIUSXM Onyx Plus fit seamlessly, with no problem into the auto docking station I have already installed for my SIRIUSXM Onyx EZ?

For details on fit please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to give you the details if this will fit.

Does this unit put out stereo to my amplifier, or is it mono coming from one mini output jack to two RCA input jacks?
[ roguemodel  Apr 04, 2014 ]
2 answers
To my ears it is stereo. It is hooked up to an integrated stereo amp with a pair of B&W speakers and I can tell left channel and right channel sounds. Not mono.
[ HARVEY  Apr 05, 2014 ]
It has a right and left connection so I assume it iiis stereo.
