Built Extra-Tough for the Job Site

The Sangean Fatbox Industrial Radio features an extremely durable protective roll-cage made of tough, heavy-duty ABS plastic. This rugged design can withstand a fall from six feet and can sustain over 250 pounds of weight.

What's more, the buttons, speakers and battery chamber are sealed to keep water, dust and other harmful elements from damaging its interior components. The firm, flexible rubber antenna boosts reception yet can still be folded to stay protected within the protective roll cage.

High-Quality Sound and Advanced Tuning

The Fatbox boasts two 6.5-inch waterproof speakers and a powerful internal amplifier that provides high-quality, full-range sound--even in noisy environments.

The Fatbox has multiple equalizer options that allow the user to cut or boost specific frequencies, making it easy to tailor the sound to your taste. There are also six different preset EQ modes for specific music genres and settings, including rock, pop and outdoor. The Fatbox also includes intelligent dynamic loudness compensation that adjusts low-pitched sounds for better bass tones

On-Board Battery Charging and Flexible, Protective Connectivity

Not only does the Fatbox bring you high-quality sound in an extremely durable package, it also boasts handy extras. The Fatbox is equipped with a built-in battery charger, allowing you to charge universal D-size Ni-MH batteries while the unit is plugged into AC power. This offers you the freedom to listen to your music anytime and anywhere.

The Fatbox is also equipped with two auxiliary input ports that allow you to use any external player, including iPods, CD players or even portable DVD players. One of the ports is hidden inside the media compartment. This water-resistant compartment has protective foam on the inner wall which prevents scratches on your iPod, iPhone or MP3 player.
