Who has the juice to de-archive a thread if not you Mike? I mean other than Chuck obviously.

I keep asking for the stroke but never get it.  Some excuse about server thing.  He just says start a new one.  I’d like to update my double car garage. 

Alden could but he is super MIA

Is this a scenario where to get him to appear I need to build a pyre of burning Saab parts and declare the words Fudge Brownie 3 times while spinning around like a dervish? 
 

His 50th birthday is coming up on Jan 15th maybe he needs a visit from the ghosts of Volvospeed past? I believe their names are: R Bumper, Pegs, and HIDz

wow, I wouldn't have guessed he was that old.

My math appears to be off by 1 year but he’s definitely in the Old Man Crew now.

I want to know how that s70 has a center speaker set up - i thought that was only on the SE and C70's and R's!

Nice find Alain!


The owner told me Grandma ordered the car fully spec’d which included the SC-900 and factory Dolby unit with center speaker but for whatever reason she elected not to install wood grain trim. But, I still have mint in the box NOS black walnut trim that Will sold me years ago when I was contemplating swapping out the black trim from my last T5. So we’ll see if that gets installed in this car.

Check the door speakers or dash tweeters, I believe center channel was only installed if the Dynaudio kit was added.

I’m pulling the door cards in the near future and will check it out when I do. The sound is dramatically better than the old T5 which had just the standard setup but not nearly as warm and clean as the Dynaudio setup in my C70. If it is the full Dynaudio system then that truly is a rare install for an S70.

It's hard to find good info on these cars anymore. I'm very happy with the project, but curious if there's anything to be done with smoothing out the power band. Anyone know the consensus on the N intake manifold vs the RN manifold?
