got my 20gb phatbox a couple of days ago, and fitted it yesterday. first off, i think it's great!
as many of you know, you can't install the phatbox where teh cd changer is because the DMS cartridge won't let the compartment hatch close. so i decided to remove the metal casing and have something smaller fabricated out of metal. i didn't want to cut the original metal casing, i think it looks cool the way it is
while we were thinking, a buddy came up with a superb idea . and here are the results:
yes, we really did cover it with cardboard
actually the box from a texon xenon conversion. well it does the job of protecting the unit from dust, and it's free and it took only 5 minutes. we later removed the cd changer and the bracket, and stuck the unit on the subwoofer using foam and silicone. heres the result:
so everything works fine. doesnt look too good ofcourse
one thing to remind everybody: don't forget to get all your CDs out of the changer before rmoving it, as you can't afterwards.
and a question: do you guys think the vibrations from the subwoofer and my cars stupendously hard suspension will destroy my harddrive? altgough the unit sits on foam?
