      if your passat has aktive system; most of them if not all of them did back then; the door mounted speaker has a built-in amplifier. that speaker feeds the front dash and rear tray mounted speakers for each side of the car.
      if you unplug or the door mounted speaker stops working; tha complete side of the car has no sound.
      with that said; 99.9% of the time when a different deck is installed on te passat cars; i am trying to install a b4 souind system in my 91 so i can gain cd controls or even a deluxe mk3 deck to gain aux input; it requires the rewiring of each speaker individually to by pass the door mounted amplifier/speaker...
