Smallest car with the most ridiculous sound system

Interesting Engineering

One of the smallest cars on the road is the Smart Fortwo. While it may be the smallest car thanks to JBL it has been packed full of the biggest audio and most ridiculous audio equipment, not to mention the loudest. A one of a kind Forgigs concept provides a maximum output of 5, 720 W and 150dB on this huge sound system.

Smart said that they created the Forgigs so that they could find out what type of sound experience was possible and they said that it could become a concert hall with wheels or perhaps used as a mobile amplifier for street musicians. Smart said that they used the most powerful and the finest audio components in the system. The system comprises of 16 speakers, 5 amplifiers and two 30cm in diameter subwoofers.
