    What is the Monsoon Power Wire?

    Can anyone tell me which wire is the power to the Monsoon amp? My front speakers have never worked since I swapped to this deck. I believe it's because they go thru the amp and the amp is not getting turned on from the radio. I got this wire harness from Bestbuy and it's suppose to be for our car. Any help would be nice.

    I believe I know which ones are the speakers based on the radio wire harness. The radio & power antennae work with no issues it's just the amp I can't get to work. I also looked at the wire diagram in the tech stickies and that made no sense.



    Is this one it?

    not to veer of course here. but if the amp wasnt turning on none of the speakers would work, as they all run thru the amp. are you sure your front speakers arent blown? or grounding out some how?

    I'll have to check that.. The highs(tweeters) are working, but not the others in the door. When the factory deck was in they worked fine.

    I don't know about the T/A. But, in the Camaro, the mids in the door are powered off the amp at 2 ohm and the tweeters off the HU at 4 ohm. I think your're right and may need to bypass the stock amp

    Do the sail panel speakers work? They are powered off the monsoon amp too.
