About the SiriusXM Onyx Plus & SXSD2 Package
SiriusXM already has an amazing array of great programs, and it's getting better all the time. And when you combine the Onyx Plus Dock & Play satellite radio with a vehicle kit and the SXSD2 boombox, it's easier to enjoy satellite radio between two locations. Simply nestle the Onyx Plus tuner in the vehicle kit's cradle or inside the boombox's dock, and you'll get your favorite satellite radio programming just about anywhere in your home or on the go.
Onyx Plus tuner and vehicle kit
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.
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.
Your favorite SiriusXM programs will sound great, indoors or out. (Shown with the SiriusXM Onyx Plus tuner; sunglasses and cool drink not included)
SXSD2 portable speaker dock
SiriusXM's SXSD2 boombox is designed to work with a variety of SiriusXM, Sirius, and XM Dock-and-Play radios, including the Onyx Plus and Onyx EZR. You can even connect MP3 players and other audio devices via the aux-in jack (cable sold separately).
Portable and versatile
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: A subscription is required and sold separately by SiriusXM. Some channels are not available in all packages. Satellite radio service is available only within Canada and the lower 48 states — not available in Alaska, Hawaii or U.S. territories.
