Just got done rewiring my CF3. Now it is more compact and a lot less messy.
It also boasts two speakers now. One was loud to begin with now it is just "WOWtacular".
Here is the pile of old hard wire I took out. I will never use this stuff again for things like this :P
Here is a picture of my Think Geek sound system with Patches old speaker. With a little tinkering I was able to make it play louder but the quality will always suck for music.
