Volvo S80 2.4T Converting HU-801 to Single DIN / 1DIN

I was missing the option to play my own music using a iPod Classic interface, so decided to convert my HU-801 Volvo headunit to my trusty Pioneer 1DIN / Single DIN using a fascia plate and some converter cables.

I like the original look better, but the functionality of the Pioneer outweighs the look a couple of times, which makes it a no-brainer for me.

VW Golf MK3 GTI, Hifonics HFI250A MKII Subwoofer

Missed a lot of bass in the Golf MK3, so decided to add some in the form of a subwoofer. I normally dont add one, but I felt it was essential in this car, as my normal speaker setup was unable to provide me with it. Found a nice Hifonics HFI250a subwoofer nearby and needed a wirekit, before I could test it.

Result: Awesome bass 🙂 Highly recommended

Also, I love the “Power From Gods” note on it hehe

Sound Proofing the Aygo

The Aygo has pretty flimsy doors, which don’t help much with the sound quality of your sound system & background noise when you are driving your car. I bought some sound proofing on eBay & added it on the front + rear doors & spare tire well.

Sound quality has been improved greatly & road noise has been reduced. All in all a must have mod for your Toyota Aygo / Peugeot 107 or Citroen C1.
