Hello,
I have a 1997 Volvo 850 with the factory radio. I'm pretty sure the factory radio is a double-din its pretty big (it has a cassette player). Im looking at getting the Sony Xplod head unit. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_158GT640UI/Sony-CDX-GT640UI.html?search=Sony+CDX-GT640UI&ssi=0&tp=5684) I know that it would not fit in my car like that but if I got this mounting kit (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120889000/Dash-Pocket.html?tp=3121) would it work?

Also Im looking at getting http://www.crutchfield.com/p_70012BLUEX/Dual-Bass-Package.html sub woofer and amp. would this work? Is it a good deal?

As you can tell im new at this and I really would appreciate any help/insight :)

Thanks in advance

that pocket kit will not work no
if you buy from crutchfield or sonic they give you the dash kit for free. ;)

for the cost of the sub amp combo its a rip off for 250 u can get a decent sub amp and prefab box on here that is 1000 times better than that.

So If I do buy the Sony CDX-GT640UI from crutchfeild they will give me a dash kit for free? nice! Is there anyway I can make certain that it will fit in my car?

3A825 use that for 20 off over 100 on crutchfield if you are getting the head unit from them, I know it has some restrictions but cant remember exactly right now, but it worked for me

Why not call up Crutchfield? Talk to Taylor and tell him I (Alex) told you to call him. Nicest guy i've talked to there. He wrote me a thank you card for christmas, and we still keep in touch. I've contacted all of his supervisors and gave them great compliments of how helpful he was.
