I have two questions?????

1: Looking at the picture below can anyone tell me if my stereo is a Monsoon System or not??? I have a six disc changer in the truck.. not sure about an AMP..

2: If so can someone tell me of a great set of door speakers that will replace (they are busted) my door speakers without having to make any or many adjustments.. Thanks..

Any info on this would help...

I think the cassette door, or somewhere on the front, would say "Monsoon". The pic you have does not say it. :eek:


I just went out and took this picture.

Copied this write-up, from 1999.....



Starting with its soon-to-be-released 2000 model year cars, Volkswagen
will offer the sound-drenching power of the eight-speaker Monsoon Audio System
as standard or optional equipment on its Golf GLS, GTI, Jetta and Passat
models.
The Monsoon Audio System was conceived to satisfy music lovers who want to
be immersed in sound. In the spirit of the Volkswagen brand, Monsoon's
innovative high-performance audio system meets the demands of drivers who want
a sound system to be an emotional part of their motoring experiences.
Volkswagen will provide the Monsoon system as standard equipment on its
GTI VR6, Jetta GLX and Passat GLX models. It is a $295 option on the four-
cylinder Golf GLS, GTI, Jetta GLS and Passat GLS.
Using proprietary software programs and trained listeners, Monsoon
customized its system for optimal performance in the 2000 Volkswagen models by
specifically tuning it to the acoustic environments of the Golf, Jetta and
Passat individually. Monsoon's goal is to envelop the cars' occupants in
clear, crisp, high-performance sound with a strong bass response and no
unwanted resonance, even at high volume.
Eight premium speakers deliver premium sound. Each is positioned and
aimed for optimal sound: four woofers for powerful low frequency sound and
four tweeters for clear, crisp high frequency sound.
An eight-channel, high-performance 200-watt amplifier, with 103 poles of
active equalization, provides power and custom equalization for the Monsoon
system, directing low, mid and high frequencies to the appropriate speakers.
Each speaker has its own individual amplifier, and each amplifier channel has
active crossovers to direct low, midrange and high frequencies to the
appropriate speaker. All channels are also equipped with Dynamic Distortion
Limiting (DDL).
The Monsoon cassette receiver comes equipped with Digital Signal
Processing (DSP), self diagnostics and circuitry to minimize noise
interference. It also controls an optional six-disc CD changer mounted in the
trunk.

I believe the standard stereo has 6 speakers, and no amp?
