USB Charger + Cell Phone Mount

I think one of the best things about newer cars is the interior electronics. I want to be able to talk handsfree, navigate via satellite, and play music off a USB drive instead of a CD. For longer trips, I want the phone charging. But I’m a lazy child of the future, and I don’t like plugging things in, swapping things around, etc. I want to have my phone Just Work with the car, with minimal fussing about.

S70 Speakers Demystified

I posted earlier asking about recommended speaker sizes to replace the blown speakers in my daughter’s S70 and the response was pretty much crickets. I had to make a couple of trips to the local Pick & Pull for some other parts so I tried to pull the speakers from a donor S70 while I was there but they were rotted as well. The foam on the edges of the cones had basically turned to dust on all of them in the lot. I pulled a speaker for each door and a rear deck speaker anyway, I think the Pick & Pull just gave them to me or charged very little for them since they were bad anyway and I was buying a bunch of other stuff. I figured having them would let me experiment on fitting other speakers into the frames.

A Comprehensive Look at Volvo Radio Upgrade

You have your SC-901 head unit. Check.
You have the Dolby processor. Check.

Sounds like you do NOT have the center speaker / dash yet. That’s OK – it can be added later.
