Default The Smart ForTwo meets JBL...results in 5720W of shredded eardrums!

Meet the Smart ForTwo. 898cc Turbo with 89 Bhp and 100 ft.lb Torque. Oh and 5720W of Audio.

If you think you've seen it all, think again! Methinks on full volume, the car may vaporize or open a space-time portal. Or both.

The Recipe:
  1. One Smart ForTwo
  2. Four Sets of GTO 609 Components for a total of 16 speakers
  3. Two 12" Subs
  4. Three GTO 804 EZ Amps
  5. Two GTO 751 EZ Amps
  6. One Mosconi Digital Signal Processor
  7. Oh and a crazy team to put this all together.
It's overkill for sure, but the good kind! and something The Yeti® would've been proud of.

(All Pics from Gizmodo, but I take full credit for the cheeky comments. Or blame, maybe.)

When I saw her for the first time, she looked so innocent.

"Cough Twice", said the Doc!

I wonder what they could've crammed into a Peel P50. Food for thought.

Couldn't help but think of our beloved Sam Kapasi when I saw the tricked out Smart ForTwo.

The homegrown Nano that Sam built was way cooler

That's exactly what I thought when I saw the ForTwo. This has his trademark 'larger than life' personality. Even put in a subliminal reference in the post.

Interesting sub woofer used on the Nano. Wonder if JBL have used carbon fibre as reinforcement on the speaker cone. They look similar to some of the speaker cone's found on Usher speakers.

The Nano does look way cooler.
