I have two 8” optional sub’s behind the rear seat in my 2004 C70. imo they are rather worthless as they don’t seem to get enough power to punch. I pulled them out and inspected it all – they appear to have some kind of sealed crossover (one per sub) and apparently are being driven by the 4x100 amp in the trunk. I would like to drop in a subwoofer amp and passive crossover and tweak it to my listening levels. Does anyone have a schematic to the wires running into and out of the crossovers ? I don’t want to blindly rip off the Volvo clips and bare the wires and start guessing, but I will if it comes to it.

Re: C70 subwoofer power question (MrTippy)

Hey Pete - the Dyno's are still in the car, I had taken it to Tweeter and they wouldn't touch it because of the way its wired intot he car - that and there computer showed nothing available as matched replacements. Right now if I toggle to subs on and off there is no noticable difference so I am looking into the possibility of installing a sub amp and corssover but I need a schematic to know what's what back there first.....
