 (Aug. 9, 2011) Please be aware that the LWX-1 interface module doesn’t have an internal amplifier. This means that no ordinary set of speakers will work to produce even mediocre audio. The speakers must either be powered or an amp will need to be used before the speakers in order to produce the digital quality audio that Sirius provides.  Consumers can purchase powered speakers with a  1/8 in.(3.5mm) stereo pin for as little as $20.00 or as much as $260.00 for marine-grade versions.  Powered computer speakers would work too but bear in mind that they aren’t waterproof for use on the water. So, unless they’re going to be using it in a fully enclosed cabin or in a “non-marine” scenario, these would not be suggested.

Marine-grade amps can be purchased for use with non-powered speakers and these range from $11.00 for a basic kit to $530.00 for high-end JL Audio 6 channel system to drive multiple speakers.
