Mike, I did a DIY double-din install your kids would find useful.  http://volvospeed.com/install_performance_parts_how_tos/misc_other_volvo_guides/double-din-radio_install.html

Anything from Pioneer, Alpine, Kenwood, etc would be a good option.  However, I haven't kept up with specific models/lines and the features they offer, so have your kids figure out which features they need, and which ones they want, then use those criteria to filter down on Crutchfield.

Run the internal amp in the new head unit.  It's a much better option than the stock amp, the evolution in technology is worth it!

Also, crutchfield will say that a double-din won't fit because you have to modify the factory radio cavity in the dash to secure the new radio.  I tried to debate with them about that for a while, but they won't update their site.

i've basically given the R to the kids.  They don't think listening to the motor is all the sound thats needed.

So I'm not alone in this. As my kid has her eye on my R though she's got 5 more years to go and the wife is starting to question why we have so many cars around....

Damn. You should sell it to me. Seriously don't let the kids kill it. Then Quicksilver and I can be twins with a pair of Saffrons in the garage.

Can't vouch for who owns the car but as far as stereo stuff is concerned, i swapped out the "supposedly amazing" SC-901 in the C70 with this Kenwood DDX470 unit and it has literally been the best mod I've done to this car. Originally I had it wired directly to the speakers, but it sounded a bit flat. It did take some wiring witchcraft (above my head) to get it wired through the factory 4x100 amp, but once we got it working I was very impressed. Sounds better than the SC901, and has infinitely more features. 10/10 would recommend. 

If you don't have a 4x100 system, I'd go with an aftermarket amp that is similar spec to power the stock Dynaudio speakers.

Volvo moccasins? Would they be appropriate for say...June 2018?

It's all a bunch of VWs and BMWs in here now (partially to blame for that, sold another Volvo off last night)

You actually still have Volvos, why not post more?
