Default Upgrade stereo?

Does anyone have any advice on how to upgrade the entire sound system in a 2001 Volvo S80. I'd like to put in a new radio, speakers, an amp, a couple subs? Is this even possible??

It is possible but will take time and some money to get it done.

First, you would need a dash kit similar to this: Dash Kit
Then, you would need a wiring harness and maybe an antenna adaptor.

Once you have all of these parts, you can visit and find compatible stereos. Kenwood makes really good products.

Let a pro do it for you. It'll cost a lot more, but it will be done nice and it will look sharp!
