  1. Best speakers to replace the standard Volt LT's front door speakers

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Has anyone upgraded the standard Volt LT's audio system by replacing the front door speakers with higher quality ones of the same size and power requirements? The goal is to avoid changes in wiring and avoid the addition of a higher power amp but improve the sound quality.

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    Hi all, New to the forum and new owner of a 2018 Chevy Volt. So far I love it and I'm still trying to see what all I can play with safely. Had a question regarding the infotainment system and/or Mylink. I've been doing a lot of searching online but it seems like there's not too much...
  3. audio quality - bluetooth vs cord

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I'm still considering getting a used gen1 volt and saving a ton of money instead of getting a tesla model 3. I was shocked to learn that teslas don't let you play audio through USB from your phone, only via bluetooth, since bluetooth audio quality isn't as good as USB quality. Can gen 1 volts...

  10. 2013 Issues!!

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Facts: Leased new in March 2013; have 19047 miles as of Dec 10, 2014. Love the car; HATE the car. Because of so many problems, GM better give me a too-good-to-be-true deal to lease a 2016. In most of the dealership repair visits, they have provided a Volt. That's when I noticed a big...
  11. For those who upgraded the audio system: experience with different speakers/subs?

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    For those who upgraded the audio system: advice on different speakers/subs? I finished installing a custom stereo system in my Volt last night. It "piggybacks" on the Bose system - basically I cut the input wires for the front, routed them to an input converter and then to my amp then cut the...
  12. iPod audio stops playing

    Software & Programming/Code - Chevy Volt
    I have 2011 Volt#639 and am delighted with it. There's a minor problem that has become more annoying. While listening to the iPod through the USB port, the audio will just stop. It doesn't fade down like on an incoming phone call or using the voice prompts, it stops abruptly. The time...
  13. Sound System upgrade

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    My Volt came with stock (non-Bose) audio system. I had considered getting the Bose system, but after listening to it, I knew I wouldn't be satisfied with that so I stuck with the cheap system with the intention of upgrading the system with aftermarket components. I've just ordered all of the...
  14. Bluetooth Audio Streaming please

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    One feature that is severely missing from the Volt is the ability to stream audio. I don't have an iPod, don't want an iPod. I really want to be able to just use my phone to wirelessly stream audio to the radio over bluetooth. This feature is in almost every car these days, but my Volt...
  15. Does The Volt Have Bluetooth Audio Streaming?

    Chevy Volt Engineering and Design
    I thought I would create a dedicated thread as I cannot seem to find one on this topic. Does the Volt have Bluetooth audio streaming? I found a section in the 2012 Owners Manual that reads: "A Bluetooth phone with MP3 capability cannot be paired to the vehicle as a phone and an MP3 player at...

    Newcomers to GM-VOLT.COM (See here for FAQs)
    My iPhone has around 1500 contacts for my business. I have successfully connected the phone (both hard connection and via Bluetooth) to the car's audio system, but can't scroll past the "J's" in the phone book... Has anyone else encountered this and better yet, has anyone come up with a...
  17. How to disable the Bose subwoofer

    Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    The Bose subwoofer is terribly detrimental to the sound quality in the Volt. They inexplicably seemed to have tuned the port to the resonant frequency of the car. Anyway, if you want accurate sound you can disable the subwoofer in about 10 mins with 1 socket wrench required. Lift up the hinged...
