Hello Greg, the Volvo is pretty easy to upgrade as long as you know how to remove door panels and take your time. Make sure you have a door removal tool. You can buy one at any auto part store. If you want a fool proof way of doing it yourself order from crutchfield this way you will get all the instructions needed adapters needed . Otherwise there are plenty of online videos and articles showing how to remove door panels and you can save money by ordering from amazon or other places.Hi Matt,
I have a 1997 Volvo 850 Wagon, just like the one I saw your pictures from in this thread. I'm looking to upgrade completely - new receiver, new component front speakers, and (possibly) subwoofer. I'm not looking for an overpowering system, just an improvement that sounds good. With a total budget of 400-450 dollars, how much of an upgrade can I get, and where do you suggest I look? Do you think I could install myself (I'm completely new to car audio but can learn quickly), and if not, how cheap could I find a professional installer? Do you think a subwoofer or amplifier would be worth the money? I'm not entirely sure how high-grade a system has to be for either of these things to make sense. Excuse my lack of knowledge.
