    Hi all, first time posting and only recently acquired my 2015 Smart Fortwo 453. The first modification I'm going to be doing is upgrading the awful factory speakers, I've tried removing the door panel (interior and exterior) but it would appear the wheel arch is in the way of removing the...

    smart General Discussion
    I just bought a 2008 Smart Car, and am interested in installing a Bluetooth receiver. From what I've been able to figure out, since my Smart Car is pre 2010 and I don't have a USB in the glove box, I have 2 choices that appeal to me. 1) Get a bluetooth receiver that has a battery, plug it into...

  7. Best Audio System with AUX input

    Audio & Video

  10. replaced my door speakers yesterday

    Audio & Video
    A friend said one of the biggest differences in sound between speakers of equal size, is the size of the magnet. That would explain the incredible difference in sound when my son and I installed new door speakers yesterday. We put in Infinity Reference 6032cf 6.5" speakers, that I got off ebay...
