How does the radio fit, its front is not at all like the HU units??
I bought a used SC901 for my 850 a year ago and was very dissapointed about
the sound until i learned about the equalizer.
Mine was set as a C70 and there was way to much treble and no bass. I
adjusted it manually so it now sounds just perfect.
If you look in the manual that comes with the car, there is a description of
how to control the stereo, there you get an idea of which models could be
installed from factory.
