    2000 vw jetta monsoon system removal???

    I have a 2000 vw jetta with the monsoon system. I want to remove all of it and put a jensen amp and change the speakers with the alpine sps-600 and change the head unit. I took one of the door panels off and saw that you have to pretty much get into the door to take those speakers out. Also can i use the wires of the other amp to connect my old one or just buy new wires. I would like to hear peoples opinions especially the ones who messed witht he monsoon system thanks

    First off keep in mind that this forum focuses on have a PC in your car. The audio section is designed for questions and discussion on implementing the PC into an audio system of any kind. With that said let me see if I can help you with this.

    I also have a 2000 Jetta. what do you mean by "I took one of the door panels off and saw that you have to pretty much get into the door to take those speakers out."? The tweeters come out pretty easy, and the main speaker is held in by rivets so you have to drill them out and when you buy speakers to replace them you need to get a mounting kit for them.

    You could use the existing wiring if you'd like for the speakers depending on how much power you are going to be putting out of the amp. I would not use the existing power source for the amp though.

    Keep in mind that a Monsoon amp really is not much of an amp. It is actually more of a crossover. Most of the amplification is done in the head unit then sent to the Monsoon "amp" and then the frequencies are divided to the tweeters and woofers. This means that you should have 4 wires going to each door. (2 + & - for tweeter, + & - for woofers)

    ok i mean when i got in the door i didnt see rivets that you could drill out. i thought you had to get past the door panel and behind the speaker like where the window is located in the door. idk if that helps. ok i am using a 760 watt amp with 75 rms to power 4 240 watt speakers. so i guess i will have to change out the wires. a mounting kit. I am not sure how that works.
