I must be a lucky one but my OEM Monsoon system is awesome. Speakers are still good and I think it's actually a great sounding system. Aftermarket Kenwood deck though as the OEM deck bricked itself (literally just froze one day)
I thought the Monsoon sound quality was OK. Nothing to get excited about.

The Kenwood DNX571HD I got is way better.
I pulled it out of my 03 Jetta and will be installing it into my 14 Jetta in the near future.
Just my 2 cents.

If you are switching to a single din I would opt for a used OEM pocket (1J0 857 058 B) as the Metra one doesn't look that good IMO.

When I did my 2003 Jetta I ran a power wire over from the ignition, but for my 2003 Golf I used an Axxess XSVI-9003-NAV Interface Harness and I think it was worth the money.

You also need an antenna adapter.

How do you turn off amp/crossover in trunk other than cutting the wires - 2002 Jetta TDI?

Fuse 42 powers the amp and the radio.

If you get an adapter cable the radio won't have power.
Power to the amp was the biggest reason I removed it.
I also ran all new wires so I did not have the VW tiny wires.

I mentioned this earlier in the thread, I'm not sure why so many remove the amp out of the system. Hook up a relay to switched power to definitively turn the amp on and off and then there's no issue with any parasitic drain

Two reasons I removed it.

The replacement already had more power then I need.

I ran all new heavier speaker wires to each speaker and didn't want the power feeding backwards into the amp output.

I did have to replace the rear speakers at some point.

Gotcha.

Yeah if I was re-doing the system completely that amp would be out and I'd buy aftermarket amp/speakers/wiring.

Did that for my truck (pretty standard amp/sub/speaker setup) and boat (had 3 zones of speakers and subs that were being powered by 2 amps)

Default Turn Off Amp/Crossover

Hello,

Have 2002 Jetta TDI. Recently installed FH-S701BS Pioneer double din radio. Crutchfield recommends Fosgate speakers with tweeters. They have inline crossover. How do I turn off crossover in trunk other than cutting the wires?

Thanks,
Robert

Discussed in more detail earlier in thread. If you're not using it, unplug or remove conductors, nearest the head unit would be best. Cut the wires is a summary type answer, you never want to leave open conductors.
