thanks for hooking me up with the blaupunkt adapter info.
i do have one question.... will this adapter, if plugged into a amp and sub actually sound better with monsoon system than my current setup... which is my amp tapping into rear speaker lines for signal?
here is the deal. my car is a lease with 18 months left on it... and i have yet to decide if i am keeping it after the lease it up... it's mint with 14k miles 2002 leather, sunroof 17's, monsoon, etc.
i am seriously contemplating yanking the entire monsoon system and replacing it with all boston component speakers and a 10 inch boston sub in a tight sealed box, 2 alpine amps, and an alpine head unit.
the only problem i have with this install of amp and sub.... is this.... my current monsoon system actually sounds better without the addition of the amp and sub. the problem with this line level install is this.... you are tapping into a full signal that, when adjusted via the bass knob on the HU, totally screws with the sound clarity because it removes the necessary signals from reaching the monsoon speakers... and, in fact, removes some of the signal from reaching the bass amp.
this is a terrible way of adding a sub to the system.... you have to adjust your bass, mid, and treble for each and every cd.... not to mention the fader.
i am yanking this setup due to the lack of control and the overall a$$ sound it has created in my otherwise decent stock system.
my new theory on all of this.... i am either going to deal with what i have in the car (which is not that bad) or yank it all in favor of super high end quality stuff (i.e boston, etc)
i will get up with you if i need the adapter.
