Dear Priority List Members:

Thank you for taking the time to sign up for our priority list. As promised we wanted to give all priority list members advance notice of our launch this November 15th! We know you have all been waiting a long time for this product and we appreciate your patience. We felt it was important to run several beta programs with extensive in-field testing before our official launch so we could insure the system met your needs, wants and desires.

On November 15th, will be launching our special limited edition PhatNoise Car Audio System in a new platinum finish with 20gigs of storage! The price will be $799 which is approximately $100 less than purchasing a CD changer at your local BMW dealer.

At launch our system will be compatible with the following head units:

Head unit Model Year
Kenwood (Aftermarket) 2000-2001
BMW 3 series (Including M3) 1996-2001
BMW 5 Series 1996-2001 (no navigation or DSP)
BMW X5 1996-2001 (no navigation or DSP)
Audi 1998-2001("Concert" and "Symphony" units)

Shortly after launch we will be adding support for the following head units:

Head unit Model Year
Sony 2000-2001 selected units
Volkswagon 1998-2001
Honda 1998-2001
Toyota 1998-2001

If your radio is not listed above one option we will be offering later this year a Sony RF modulator. These modulators are available at most car audio stores. The RF modulator enables the PhatBox to work with any head unit.

For more information on our compatibility please visit our Web site at

Again, thank you for your support and the countdown has begun. Only four more days until launch!


The PhatNoise Team

if you have 1000's of songs on a CD it would take forever to go to song 400. Unless it breaks them down into Folders (CDs) .. so would it emulate a CD changer that holds 100's of CDs? Does it support Text display? Dont think it would be too fun to have so many CDs and songs if you dont know where they are...

If your stereo has text, then this will use it. It presents the songs as virtual CDs with 100 tracks each or something like that. It allows you to keep your steering wheel controls / factory head unit. That's the primary goal of the system... to let you keep using your factory head unit and controls.
