Amplifer and CD changer's location

Here you can post things about ICE (In Car Entertainment). Like how to install GPS navigation, a DVD-player and other yuppie-stuff. This category might be moved to "those other things" in the end...

Amplifer and CD changer's location

Post by il Conte » Fri Jun 04, 2010 4:23 pm

Hi guys!
Someone could tell me where's the original Amplifer and cd-changer's location inside the 480??
What is the proper arrangement provided by Volvo??


About the amplifer (HA4140), I really don't know where it can be located.

About the cd-changer, I saw in some photos that it can be located inside the boot...but how??

I don't believe to be the only one with these accessories... :dunno:

Hello!! :D

I can't help you with the Cd-changer but I seem to remember that on early models the radio amplifier was located under the passenger seat (not be used at the same time with passenger seat height adjustment, though).

Thank you for your opinion! :wink:

But how to fix it under the seat?
In many other volvos the amplifer can be fixed behind the dashboard...

I should find a proper solution...

I think there was some kind of mounting kit, a plate which holds the amplifier with some holes for screws or something like that.

Here, taken from the accessories pages:

"...Volvo Part Number:

* Chassisnrs up to 567600:
o HA 4140 = 1373082-5
o Fitting kit = 3453527-8
o Cable = 1373086-6
* Chassisnrs 567600 and onwards:
o HA 4140 = 3533177-6
o Fitting kit = 3453527-8
o Cable = 3464008-6"


And


"Height Adjustable Seat


* For optimal ride comfort.
* Seat is adjustable in height over a range of 42 mm.
* Available for left and right.
.....
* NOTE: height adjustment is not possible in combination with amplifier under passenger's seat."

You're right!!! :hopping:

Now I need only the cable and the fitting kit!

However is strange that nobody on this forum has a picture about it! :?

Thank you again "480's partner", your info are always useful! :wink:

Cheers mate!

PS: I'll show you all my radio sistem as soon as possible, I haven't forgot it! ;)
The only problem I have now are the high temperatures! I can't work in the car 'cause there are 40° in Rome...is too hot all the day!!
