Sorry for beating this topic to death, but I am still unclear how many speakers are on the T5 standard stereo (hu-613). In the literature for the T5 and for the premium packages on the 2.4 & 2.4T, this stereo is listed as having 8 speakers---yet the T5 comes with rear hatshelf speakers (I have seen 2.4's with the introductory pkge/hu-613 and they definitely did not have hatshelf speakers). I interpreted this to mean that the T5 has 10 speakers--but others have said this is not the case.<P>Indy: I've read the Volvo .pdf file, and various posts, but this question still hasn't been answered. What do you think?

This is one of the most confusing things, since the PDF File is intended for the European market, not the US market. For the US market, the stereo system configurations are different. This is what I know:<P>S60 2.4 HU-413 Standard Equipment - 6 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<BR> <BR>S60 2.4 HU-613 Intro & Premium Package - 8 Speakers (3 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<P>S60 2.4T HU-413 Standard Equipment - 6 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<P>S60 2.4T HU-613 Premium Package - 8 Speakers (3 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<P>S60 T5 HU-613 Standard Equipment - 8 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, 2 hatshelf speakers). AOL upgrade gives 2 additional hatshelf speakers for a total of 10.<P>S60 T5 HU-803 AudioMax Upgrade Package - 13 Speakers (1 center channel speaker, 3 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, and 4 hatshelf speakers).<P> <IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/7/332/936/0001/www.edmunds.com/edweb/wardlaw/01volvov70/media/01.volvo.v70t5.centerc.175.jpg"> <P>-Drew<P>

So even though it is supposedly the same stereo in the 2.4/T premium package and the T5, there is one fewer speaker in the front door for the T5. That is strange.<P>Indy, thanks for your help. Do you know how much it would cost to upgrade the hatshelf speakers in the T5? (AOL isn't an option for me--since I'm getting the car through TDS and picking it up March 30).

I did take advantage of the AOL offer so I really can't complain about the Audio quality of the hat-shelf speakers. But I will say that I find the sound to be rather "muddy" If I were looking to spend my own money on hat-shelf speakers (having now heard the Volvo offering) I would look to the aftermarket. Counter-point the install is very nice, in my car the complete rear-deck was replaced and it looks top-notch

OK, I apologize for bringing this up ONE MORE TIME, but there are some conflicting stories out there.<P>InDy, you mentioned.<P>"S60 T5 HU-613 Standard Equipment - 8 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, 2 hatshelf speakers). AOL upgrade gives 2 additional hatshelf speakers for a total of 10."<P>From what I have been told and have had verified with part numbers is that if you order the 2.4T with the HU-613 and then the Premium Package, you get two Hatshelf speakers. These are the same as the ones being offered up by AOL. (same part number).<P>Now, if you order the T5 with the standard HU-613, you automatically get the 2 Hatshelf speakers (because there is no premium package offered and those are standard equipment for the T5). Those 2 Hatshelf speakers have the same part number of the ones offered in the AOL promotion. If I selected the Premium Hatshelf speakers from the AOL offer for my T5, I would just be replacing them with the same ones. They are the same part, which means the dealer would be replacing part for part so there is no need to do that, right? PLEASE COMMENT! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/confused.gif">

<B>Below is the correct information folks! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"></B><P>The HU-613 AOL upgrade speakers that you will be getting are the same speakers that are in the AudioMax S60 T5 system. The S60 2.4T HU-613 AOL upgrade will give you 4 hatshelf speakers. The S60 T5 HU-613 upgrade will also give you 4 hatshelf speakers. People who have a S60 2.4 will obviously benefit the most since they will get 4 additional speakers in the hatshelf, whereas the 2.4T and T5 people will just get 2 extra hatshelf speakers. It seems like there is a lot of conflicting information about the audio systems for the S60. The part numbers and drawings in the Volvo VADIS information system for the US is incorrect. <P>The information in my previous post is what Volvo literature says, but below is what people are actually getting in reality:<P>60 2.4 HU-413 Standard Equipment - 6 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<P>S60 2.4 HU-613 Intro & Premium Package - 6 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<P>S60 2.4T HU-413 Standard Equipment - 6 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, no hatshelf speakers).<P>S60 2.4T HU-613 Premium Package - 8 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, 2 hatshelf speakers). AOL upgrade gives you 2 additional hatshelf speakers for a total of 10.<P>S60 T5 HU-613 Standard Equipment - 8 Speakers (2 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, 2 hatshelf speakers). AOL upgrade gives 2 additional hatshelf speakers for a total of 10.<P>S60 T5 HU-803 AudioMax Upgrade Package - 13 Speakers (1 center channel speaker, 3 in each front door, 1 in each rear door, and 4 hatshelf speakers).<P>-Drew

OK, I am done. You are correct InDy. The information I had turned out to be wrong. Thanks AGAIN (sorry) for validating it. :)

Now I don't feel so bad for being confused!<P>Indy, are you sure the AOL upgrade just provides 2 additional hatshelf speakers to the T5, or are they 4 different speakers--replacing the 2? Does that question make sense?

PK,<P>With the HU-613 upgrade for the 2.4T and T5, they replace the entire speaker unit from the hatshelf, so they don't just add 2 more speakers, they actually replace the speaker unit with one that has 2 speakers in each enclosure. The two hatshelf speaker components are entirely different. The speakers are made by Harman Kardon. I hope that this clears things up now. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P><B>Standard Hatshelf Speakers</B> - Two 8" bass/mid-range/treble.<P><B>AOL Upgrade/AudioMax Hatshelf Speakers</B> - Two 8" bass/mid-range, Two 1" treble.<P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 03-01-2001).]
