The only way to Correctly do this is to Run an External Amp for your Subs. If you continuously run the Subs off of the Factory Amp It will Ruin the Subs and the Amp Eventually. This way you can still Connect the Rear speakers as they need to be. Please Rate my solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

    No Problem! The Factory Amp is Set up to Only Run the Speakers in the Factory System. I am going to take a Wild Shot in the Dark and Say that your Woofer are 200 Watt at Minimum. If you Continuously Run a Lower Wattage than Rated Through these they will eventually get the Voice Coils used to this Wattage. Therefore if you were to Run an Aftermarket Amp on them in the Future, The Voice Coils would Probably not Respond the way they are Supposed to and Result in a Blown Coil inside the Woofer. I have done this on a Set of Fosgate 500 Watt Subs and Cost me an Arm and a Leg to Replace! You will be Happier with the External Amp and so would your Woofers! They will work for a While like you have them But, It will Damage the Coils. Make Sense?

How do I disconnect the amplifier on my 2005 Grand Prix; it makes continuous static noise whether the radio is on or off or whether the ignition is on or off?


Assuming it's the monsoon amplifier it's located under the rear deck about 8 inches away from the passenger rear speaker. However unplugging it will kill all the speakers. The only way to properly bypass it is to run all new wires.
You maybe able to find another factory amp at a salvage yard.  

Warning: Most of the Monsoon head units have a 6V offset, making it incompatible with aftermarket amps.

Will any 6x9 speakers fit my 2002 pontiac grand am in the rear deck?


I recently helped to replace the rear speakers in a 2001 (or 2002?) Grand Am GT.
It depends on the type of stereo you have. Look at the wires going to the rear speakers. If there are two wires to each, I'm pretty sure that almost any 6X9 speaker will work.

My friend had a Monsoon system, and there were 4 wires at each speaker. There are only a few speakers that can be used on this system. As I recall, the ohm resistance is different from typical speakers. If you have a 4-wire system, you should do some reading at these websites to see what speakers to use:
http://www.gaownersclub.com/forum/index.php
http://www.grandamgt.com/
or try http://www.crutchfield.com/

I did read at one of the above Forums that there are GM replacement speakers (better than original):
"I just ordered two new Monsoon rear speakers from www.gmpartsdirect and they were only $85 shipped. They are a new part number which have been updated with better cones to help prevent blowing, part number is 22698418 " If you go with GM Monsson speakers, also try Ebay. Good Luck.

HELP! PLEASE FAST


you can disconnect the sub from the car and test it to see if its blown by hooking it up to a regular house stereo. depending on what type of sub u have not all of them have protective fuses to shut it down before it blows. i always reccomend having more wattage on your speakers than your amp to add as a failsafe.

I need to look at my sub, too


While the rear subwoofer does fail, it is often misdiagnosed because of a rattle in the vicinity.

Try removing the little fold away hooks near the subwoofer (philips screws) and see if your problem goes away.
If it is still there, loosen the panel and see if it goes away.
If it does not, more than likely the speaker has in fact failed.

Most subwoofer buzzes have been either the little fold away hook or the wire harness just behind the subwoofer.
Actual speaker failures are much more rare.

Trying to install a subwoofer on a 97 crown vic


Make sure you are using a 12volt DC system in both units. It may sound simply but an AC sub may need an inverter. Also check grounds.

2002 Grand am gt monsoon, hook up rear aftermarket speakers


You have to test them, either should work fine (as in use either pair) if that doesn't work connect one pair at a time and listen for the difference, one pair might be for factory midrange and other for tweeter.. there are two different wiring configurations...
