Volvo 740 wagon. The Beat Box. (NEW CAR!)

Recommended Posts

Took the car home on leave. 1200 miles each way. Cold A/C and a bumpin stereo, I was happy!

Met up with my friend (the one I traded the Type R to)

I snapped a few pictures when doing the "Big Three" upgrade. I will post pictures of that soon. Im looking to upgrade the battery, can you guys please suggest a good drop-in upgrade? Im looking at the XS Power D4700 right now. Thoughts?

Thanks for checking out my thread so far!

@dsw422 I dont remember if we welded the all thread or bolted it to a support behind there, its been quite a while (since I set the gains) since I've had the board off. Ill get you some pics this weekend.

The XS Power website recommended a D4700. That seems a bit much, but I honestly don't know. Thoughts?

I emailed Singer to see about getting some more power in the near future. With a refreshed stock alternator and the big three upgrade the car is great, but Im looking into a second Kicker DX1000.1 to see how much these RE's can really take!

Just drop whatever the factory equivalent is in. I LOVE my D4800/XP2000 combo. Pretty beefy and heavy, but they do engineer them for a 10 year life...

My white 740 is for sale. If there is enough cash leftover after i pay my divorce lawyer, I'm going to grab a battery.
