Hi,

I'm hoping this section covers 780's too. So in the 1991 coupes, Volvo went with a CR-814 radio and ditched the graphic equaliser. Does anyone know why?

Thanks!

the 1991 Coupe's new radio had wiring and circuitry for anti-theft and the optional CD player but not for an equalizer.

Various 1991 780 Forums have threads describing a "downgrade" swap using pre-1991 components to regain the equalizer function.

Thank you! I didn't know the anti theft/cd changer precluded the equaliser. Good to know. I'm still in research mode, amassing a list of all 780 focused forums, but I dont think I've a thread on the downgrade you mention - more searching to do!

Best,

PS: Assuming you have yet to purchase a 780 do you have a maximum dollar amount in mind? Ready to drive or needs work?

I've actually found one, but with holidays, work travel etc I wont be able to get it until January. I should probably take down that wanted ad now...

Thanks for the additional help there. Much appreciated!

I also hope this Forum reaches 780 owners or enthusiasts. I am selling my 1989 780 Bertone Coupe. I submitted an Ad just a couple of days ago and received confirmation that it was posted, but I cannot view it under Classifieds for some reason. Could someone Please look and see if it actually shows up? Also share this info with anyone you feel may want to know more about my vehicle. Many Thanks.
