Hy Buddies,

I would like to know if there was an option on the 850 models equipped with the dash central speaker ?

The Dolby Pro logic was a option for the 70 series. A few people have swapped the entire dash from a P80 70 series to a 850.

You do need to use the 70 series door panels or the doors will not shut. The ends of the dashes are different.


Platform: P80 1998 C70, B5234T3, AW50-42, Bosch Motronic 4.4, Special Edition package, Plant: Uddevalla Sweden.

Platform: X40 (Nedcar) 2003 S40, B4204T3, AW55-50/51SN, Siemens EMS 2000. Plant: Born Netherlands.

Platform P2 2005 XC90 T6 Executive, B6294T, 4T65 AWD, Bosch Motronic 7.0, Plant Torslanda Sweden.

It came with the black 1999 S70 Base model standard, only. Very rare bird - the Showelled Jersey Piper

Well, like as usual, you're wonderful boys ! Change my old 850 dashboard and doors panels for the '70 ones ? No, thanks...

I’ve read about a couple 850 owners that have
installed the OE 70 series surround system.

If you’re comfortable modifying an 850 dash
for the center channel speaker, everything
else is plug and play. AFAIK, no OE center
channel dash was ever offered by Volvo.
