Newbie here and I already apologize for rehashing a topic that is probably discussed to death, but I can't seem to find any threads regarding 240 stereo installations. I am planning on putting 4 new speakers and a new head unit in my '82 242 this weekend and am looking for advice. The speakers should be pretty easy, as I have done that sort of thing before, but I have never had to cut up and rewire a new head unit. Wiring diagrams? Advice?<p>I am also looking for mounting advice. I would like to remove the original Volvo Sound tape deck and put the new head unit in the same location (i.e. lower dash, under the fan/AC controls, not in the upper cubby area). Obviously they are going to be different sizes. Are their any aftermarket suppliers that manufacture housings for this kind of thing? I suppose I can always make one, but I am just wondering. Any crazy things I need to be aware of? <p>I am also planning on laying new speaker wire as the old stuff is almost 30 years old and needs to be replaced. Any advice on this process?

Awesome! Thanks for consolidating the threads. I don't think my internets skills are quite up to the search functions on this site.
