Re: SC901 Radio (854T5)

I believe the 901 needs the Volvo external amp<br>(I'm assuming it was ON and not coded)?

Get the amp from a 97 850 R! They are about $200 at the dealership plus about $75 for cable and harness. Or you can try to find it used from Erie Vovo or similar. <p>I will get you the part numbers later this evening unless someone beats me to it.<p>This amp is a 4 x 50 watt. You can also find a 4 x 60 from a C70 that fits under the front passenger seat or a 4 x 100 that goes in the trunk but that requires a lot of wire I think and not enough gain to be worth the effort.<p>The 4 x 50 watt amp for the 850 is mounted below the 901 unit very conveniently.

You must have an external amplifier for this thing to make any audio for you.<p>Search the audio archives for SC-901 in 850 and you can see my entire write-up on the process, parts needed, and cables.<p>Cheers,<br>Prospero

Re: (854T5)

I'd take it! What's the VIN of the C70 that it's out of?<p>Like Pro said, he's got a good write up. Also check out what this guy has to say.<br><A HREF="http://www.jimrothe.com/volvo/volvo-dynaudio.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.jimrothe.com/volvo/volvo-dynaudio.html</A>

Re: (854T5)

That's cheap?! I got my SC901 on ebay for $75! ...plugged right into the 4x50w amp that was already in my car, sounds great with the EQ set right. BUT, the whole grey face irritates me, so I dont use it. I put my trusty SC 815 back in... and the SC901 isnt used. I've been thinking about selling it too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
