Since I can't find the project thread I made here, I'm making a new one for the changes I'm going to do. But I'll add the old pics at the same time...
Last years work:
WOW. How much did that set you back in materials...since it appears you have full access to every tool you could possibly need

And here are some pics of some new equippment that's going in the car in the near future;
New amps from Kenwood. Two four-channels for the front-end and a mono for the subs....
Compact size on these beauties, don't you think?

Dvd-player for the rear seat entertainment that's coming in the springtime:

Not so much, actually. I've benn sponsored with most of the materials and all of the equippment, but I guess the materiells including cables cost about 2000 US in total.
I started in a new job in september, so I lost the chance to do so much work on the car. But I'm searching for solutions. I've build me a new routertable, so I only need a roof over my head and the car:
It's not complete yet, but I'll add some more images of it when it is...

man, your V50 really is da sh!t!
love what you've done so far, and I'm looking forward to your next audio setup... you've done a very clean install so far!!
question about the door panels: I see you've repainted them... or have you bought new ones from volvo (since the black plastic trim has a rough surface)? how do you get them off / back on?
(I'm talking about the plastic strips across the door, not the sideskirts)

Wow!! Thanks for the positive response!!
The fenders are fixed with two side tape, a real sticky type! But I used small dots of Sikaflex when I put them back on.
Kenwood is my main sponsor, that's why it's all Kenwood in the car. I competed in caraudio with a Volvo 740 before I built this one...
The center airvents are just blocked... I miss them when it's really warm outside, but I live in Norway so it's no big problem...
The attention to detail is amazing, you are truly a talented person. Im not a car audio expert whatsoever but do appreciate an awesome sound system.
I got a few questions for you if you got the time, need some advice. PM'd

I've said it before and I'll say it again: this car is beautiful!
I noticed in looking over the pics from before that your car doesn't have the sunroof, I wish my car didn't have it as that was the worst part of my headliner project and would've been a lot less time without it.
Having a V50 and it's rear hatch (to pull the headliner out of) would've been awesome, lol.
Keep up the good work!

Looks amazing. I dream of having a simple sub in my C30, let alone something this extensive.

I had it bookmarked
And i think i just came...
Btw., Won't you need to upgrade the cars' battery and alternator to power all that equipment?

I'm thinking about buying the heico front lip spoiler too. But I have a question for you...
Does this lip lower the car much in compare with the original lip? Now I have lowering springs that lower the car +- 3 cm. Do you find any trouble driving with the lip?
looks real nice, I might make it up to sweden in august to check out your car in person.
