View Full Version : Newbie stereo questions

Hey guys,

Just purchased a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am GT this Saturday. So far I love it. I have some questions about replacing the Monsoon system installed I hope you can answer.

I have a new stereo from the car I just got out of and want to install it. Where can I get an installation kit to fill the massive space the Monsoon takes up that won't look to ugly?

Also, according to the manual there is an amp in the car. Where is that installed please?

thanks in advance for the info. I plan on spending a lot of time on this site.

the amp is in the trunk...driver side behind the carpet
the kit you can get anywhere....a store online etc

Hey Kdawg,

I have never installed a stereo before. Can I just go to Crutchfield and order the install kit and the adapter for the wiring for my stereo and car?

Thanks for the info.

Do you have any stereo shops by you...they should have it...but Crutch should have it too

do a search a bit more....I know there are a few posts with all the info you want

On a car that isnt equipped with Monsoon, is there just a hole where the monsoon amp should be?

Yea, pretty much. No big deal. It's tucked away anyways.
