    Do any of you own a PhatBox? What do you think of the sound quality compared to cds? Is it noticeable if you are not an audiophile? That Liberty VW deal looks really good and I would love to have all my songs in the car with title and artist audio announcements. Any comments are appreciated!

    Well, I got my Phatbox in the mail today from Drew Auto. Hooked it up and it all works great. Now I get to the install. As many have said, it apparantly will not fit in the shelf where the factory CD changer goes thanks to the depth of the connector on the back of the unit. I see this now...

    Update on "Variant Friendly" Phatbox? plus questions.. I'm interested in the Phatnoise/Phatbox module for my '03 Variant. I in earlier posts Variant owners were finding that the module did not fit in the CD changer shelf as was advertised due to how the connector was arranged. The shelf...

    I'd like to get a Phatbox for a Passat, but with a 40GB cartridge, not 20GB. As far as I can tell, VW only offers the 20GB, forcing me to buy an accessory cartridge and then sell or discard the 20GB. That's STUPID. The main reason for me to consider the PhatNoise system is to have ALL of my MP3s...

    Where did you mount your Phatbox? Mine doesn't seem to fit in the CD changer slot with the mounting brackets attached so I mounted it on the rear deck, next to the Monsoon amp. I have a pretty hideous hum/whine while the engine is running and I suspect it's because I mounted a piece of metal...

    Ok, for those of you that ordered the Phatnoise ( phatbox via the groupbuy that was going on a month or so ago, how do you like it after 6 weeks of use? FOr those not familiar, this was feaured in Drivevw magaizine and is the 20G MP3 application (4000 songs) that is a plug and...

    Someone is offering to sell a Phatbox. However they are unsure if it is compatible with the VW. I asked what the connector cable looked like, and he said it was round with 13 pins. I know this is wrong as the newer VW cd changer cables are now rectangular, but does anyone know: 1) what car...

    PhatBox DOES work with Mac OS X and iTunes. There are also a version for Linux.

    My PhatNoise PhatBox 20GB MP3 unit arrived today from Liberty VW (via the group buy). Initial impressions: the PhatBox itself is very solid and really cool looking. Hook-up: the connection is simple: plug 1 end of the cable into the PhatBox and 1 end into the CD changer plug in your trunk...

    I'm getting a head start with my Phatbox install, went to their website and downloaded the music manager, I am ripping my audio and creating my play lists as I write this. This is pretty nice software, I can rip an entire album in about 4 minutes!! :b5: :thumbup:

  18. Mobile Electronics I missed out on the first limited edition run of these but hopefully won't miss out this time around. These are new Phatboxes which Kenwood based it's Music Keg system on. Great for all your music pirates out there.
