For immediate release


TORONTO (September 1, 2004) – First introduced in the XC90, the high output Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1 Surround Sound system is now available in every 2005 Volvo vehicle. Capable of more than 475-watts of power output (depending on the model and accessories), the sound system delivers crisp, clear sound to discerning music lovers.


The latest-generation Dolby Surround system includes a digital sound processor and centre speaker to recreate a three-dimensional sound experience. Programming ensures that everyone inside the vehicle experiences the music with the same level of quality.


S40 and V50

Optional on the Volvo S40 sports sedan and V50 sportswagon, the Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1 Surround Sound system delivers 305-watts through 12 speakers strategically placed throughout the interior. Available as an accessory is an in-dash 6-CD changer and a subwoofer that brings total power output to 445-watts through 13 speakers, delivering deep bass and enhancing the audio wave spectrum.


S60 and V70

Delivered as standard equipment in the R variants and optional on all other trims, the Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1 Surround Sound system uses 13 speakers and 325-watts of power with an in-dash 6-CD changer. V-series customers can add a 150-watt subwoofer in the rear cargo compartment.



The rugged XC70 wagon can be equipped with an 11-speaker, 325-watt Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1 Surround Sound audio system with 6-CD changer and an additional 150-watt subwoofer.



For the top-of-the-line Volvo SUV, occupants can choose to listen to their favourite music through 12 speakers, delivering 305-watts of output with Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1 Surround Sound. The optional rear subwoofer adds another 140-watts of audio output and deep bass and the optional 6-disc CD changer adds versatility.



For 2005, the high-power Dolby Pro Logic II 5.1 Surround Sound audio system becomes standard equipment for all trims. Nine speakers deliver 225-watts of power with an in-dash 6-CD changer.
