yeah a lot of amps now come with an audio output converter thing built in for ease of installation with OEM head units

got a question about the remote after a little story.....so my system was bumpin pretty hard for a while until i upgrade from 8 awg to 4 awg. it was really bumpin then for a week before my amp over heated fuses exploded then some smoke....but since the remote wire tap into a grey wire from cd change to a relay - to the amp then relay is grounded and by power wire to relay from 12v+. did you mean the power wire from the amp. Because im tap into the amp power the 4awg with a 16awg right at the fork terminal lol. could that of kept my amp from turning off when it was getting to hot? if so where could i put a remote wire for mk4 24v do i have to tap a wire from behind the stock hu? or could i pug a female terminal into the fuse box? im not to comfortable with the relay power remote wire thing being tap into power
Alright i'm trying to do this install with a x10 Rockford Fosgate punch XLC. I need to get an amp and i am not trying to spend much money at all... does anyone have any suggestions? I found a little 100 watt kicker amp (which was the stock option amp in the 05 srt4) for like 10 bucks.. my only worry is it looks like the wires come out to a plug or harness rather than having a place to attach the speaker wires, power and ground to the back like most amps.. does anyone know which amp i am talking about and if it will work? Thanks.
hey man great tutorial i ran my a little differently under the plastic on the sides under the doors. i was going to say i also hooked my RCA cable up to where the stereo is using the same wires. (i ran the wires one night cause i was bord and didnt know the stack monsoon didnt have the RCA hook up) on the top of the system there is a stick indicating the wires and what they are. so one by one i cut spliced and tied in the RCA but the turn on for the amp has no wire coming out. any idea what to do?
Could not find archived copies of the schematics, unfortunately...

I've been bumping for about 2 weeks thanks to this thread.
But I've got a couple questions. Is it normal for the sub to cut out when I plug in both RCAs? I get better sound with just one. Anyone else found this? I bought a couple more of the red wiring crimpers to see if maybe I missed a wire/bad splice. So I'll try that today most likely. But anyone else had problems with that?
ETA: Also... if I alternate the 1 RCA they both produce sound to the sub. Neither seems more powerful than the other. But as soon as I add the second RCA I get less sound.

hi my name is mike. i'm working on 01 jetta gls i just put factory headunit, FACTORY CD PLAYER, factory cd changer & now i want to hookup factory amp before i hookup aftermarket speakers. so i pulling the entire wiring from a 00 vr6 jetta. i need help hooking up this factory wire for factory amp any help wood be helpful thanks mike. u can email me or call 908-380-5373 or just reply to this message.
Question, I would like to replace my entire system factory radio, amp, and speakers, can I use the existing wires from the amp for my new amp? (For the HU and speaker wires of course). I know that I will have to run new wires for the amps power and turn on wires. But I was replacing the speakers the other day and the stock wires looked pretty thick, I was thinking that it would save a lot of trouble if I didn't have to run all new wires from my new head unit and to the new speakers.
Back from the dead...
Looking for the schematics you mentioned...I'm getting ready to attempt a swap of a 2001 single-DIN Monsoon head unit for a 2004 double-DIN Monsoon head unit.
I'm deleting 6-disc trunk-mount changer for the Phatbox...Monsoon amp is already installed.
Is it as simple as unpinning the wiring from the original plugs involved and re-inserting them in the proper places in the double-DIN's single socket, or am I missing a procedure somewhere? There is some information on the head units themselves as to what is supplied where in the plugs...
Thanks for the assist...
I am planning to add an amp and sub to my stock Monsoon stereo in my MK4 R32. I want to keep the stock equipment. Please note that in the back of the radio where the CD changer connector is located I have installed a Dension Bluetooth kit to connect my phone and stream music from different sources.
Does someone have the original drawings/pictures for this install?
Your help is appreciated!
