Sell my fantastic 760 wagon stereo installation

I have a cherry '90 760 wagon that served as a hobby vehicle for
stereo installs while I engineered the new 9-liter (yes, nine!)
mid-engined drivetrain that's going to use all that space in the rear.
Consequently, I'm selling off all my current equipment. All about 6
years old, lightly used, all receipts, tons of pix available.

Kicker KZ1000 amp - factory tested at 1736 watts + remote gain
Kicker KZ240 amp - tested at 470 watts + hi-pass module
Kicker KZ120 amp - tested at 257 watts + lo-pass module
(2) Kicker sink links, to connect all three amps into one unit that
stretches glass-to-glass across the back of the rear seat.
(4) Kicker crossovers
(2) Kicker 8" subs for mid-base
(2) Kicker 6" for mids
(2) Kicker neodymium tweets
(4) JBL GTX 15" subs
1/0 Tiff wiring, 140 amp fuse, distribution blocks, etc.

All this was chosen and configured with much communication with
Kicker's techs in Stillwater (I'm a mechanical engineer, and just LOVE
this stuff!)

The best part it my super custom module that mounts all but the
non-sub drivers behind the rear of the back seat - it includes a new
spare tire door, and is covered in Volvo grey carpet - it's the third
evolution that's been in the car, and is the best trade-off between
room consumed, technical sophistication, and "wow" factor. The amps
are on top and visible (wires hidden), and all the electronics are
visible on smoked plexi when you flip the back seats down - along with
a voltmeter and purple neon. . .

The subs are mounted as a pair of two-driver units in correctly-sized
chambers, each driver bolted face-to-face (out of phase) in a
configuration called "isobaric push-pull". The sound is actually
generated out of the back of the two outer drivers, and is aimed to
the rear, to bounce off the nice vertical rear glass. The Volvo is so
long that I had to create an even longer wave path to eliminate some
phase cancellation at the front seats at low frequencies.

All of this joy can be yours for, say $3500.00. It's currently in my
daily driver and wired and usable. Love to send pix to interested
parties.

Oh yeah, when it was configured as (4) ported subs in a HUGE box that
took up EVERYTHING behind the rear seats, I hit 150.8 db at a
competition at a HiFI Buys in Atlanta (and was beaten by a CRX!) Now
it's about 134 db, but much cleaner sound.

I'll miss it, but I want the new project!

Try ebay, or one of the stereo groups, most of us Volvo guys don't give a
rat's ass about any of that stuff and a 9 liter engine taking up the entire
cargo area sounds like the most useless and pointless Volvo wagon on the
face of the earth, I feel sorry for that poor car.

Re: Sell my fantastic 760 wagon stereo installation - Volvo Flames.jpg (0/1)

Oh man - what kind of fun you guys must have!

I guess deciding on the right cleaning products is pretty much nirvana

It takes a real man to cut up a nice car. Actually, two nice cars -
the Volvo is getting the drivetrain from a low nileage, albeit rusty
'76 Cadillac Eldorado.

I'm kind of old and educated to be a ****ing punk - maybe you're
talking about my kids?

1990 Volvorado (Valkri to you slugs in my rearview!)
