Re: Premium sound upgrade (Yuri)

Interesting - I thought that the speakers in the XC-90 used some sort of optical interface that made replacing them with aftermarket not feasible. Is that wrong - can you simply plug new speakers into the wire pigtail?<p>Also, can you share exactly what the speakers were that you installed (brand and model)?<p>Thanks for the info.

The speakers are normal. What's different is the link between the head unit, the tuner and the amplifier, which are made with fiber.<br>

Re: Premium sound upgrade (Thomas)

ig_mb is right- speakers use regular wires, so you can replace them w/o big problems.<p>Front tweeters were replaced w/ Boston Acoustics 1" tweeters that came with their own crossovers <A HREF="http://www.bostonacoustics.com/car/car_product.aspx?category_id=14&family_id=83&product_id=323" TARGET="_blank">http://www.bostonacoustics.com...d=323</A><br>Rear tweeters were replaced w/ 2" midrange drivers UP2.5 from DLS:<br><A HREF="http://www.dls.se/images/highres/UP25_04_F.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://www.dls.se/images/highres/UP25_04_F.jpg</A><p>Front and rear speakers were attached to the metal behind original grills, so no modification is seen. BA crossovers attached to the doors under plastic panels.<br>Front tweeters required removing the door panels, in the rear the grills pop out easy, no panel removal needed.
