I doubt I would be able to hear the silly thing if I did put it back in.

And it still serves as a very useful paperweight on my desk.

I admit I've considered reinstalling mine. But I had a better, more expensive idea...I'll wait until I get the APR turboback exhaust and see what kind of sexy noises my car makes naturally. I love driving with the back windows open, can hear the low tones a little better...

the soundaktor merely pumps low frequency vibrations into the cabin.
Don't understand why everyone thinks its a full-on hardass speaker that plays a full spectrum soundtrack.

I've always liked the sound of mine. Truth be damned, ignorance is bliss

you mean you like the low frequency hums n vibrations (of the soundaktor) that lay forcefully under the higher and mid frequencies of the GTI's non-synthesized intake growl.

well, it is a diaphragm vibrator rather than an actual stereo-like speaker.

I think a diaphragm vibrator is something else.

I can't believe people are putting these things back in. It's a noise maker... its not the car making the noises... it's a vibrator. Fake noises are not cool.

And if it takes a vibrator to make fake noises, you are doing it wrong.
