We have an older installed radio with four speakers that came with the boat and we also used a portable satellite radio "boombox." The satellite didn't take up much room and when we didn't have shore power it used D cells. Satellite is subscription-based of course, but you can suspend it for the months you aren't on the boat.
I have not felt the need for music while underway. I prefer conversation and burble instead.
