i while back i had my indash tv installed the guys said the he had to rewire my stock amp so hi did it and he made a mess. my indash took a crap on me and since i never liked having the stock amp like i took away all the crap the he did. i whent to the junk yard and got the stock stereo harness and the amp harness. i installed the stereo one using the wiring chart on the home page (http://mods.firebirdv6.com/stereo.html#FBAQ_16). when i got back to the amp the guy only left one cable uncut from all bundle of cables so i started putting them back together but since there were a couple of cables that were the same color i made the mistake of crimping them together. i turned on the key and only two of my speakers are workign properly. points is i still have the spare harness that i got at the junk yard. is there any place on the net that i can find a chart the can tell me what cable is what like the one for the stereo harness. im in desperate need of help ive been out there all day and i plane on finish my car tonight any help will surely be appreciated. thanxs

I'd have to say you have 2 options at this point.

Option A: Dump the amp.
Option B: Keep fiddling with it until it drives you nuts

I, myself would choose option B lol But I love to mess with wires and such.

Well, if using the stock diagram configuration didnt work, then i'd say your amp is screwed somehow. i'd try another amp and see how it works, or just get rid of the amp and hard wire to the HU...do you have a stock or aftermarket HU?

i had an in dash but crapped out so i tried putting the mess that the shop shop guy did but it to bigg of a mess. i the amp is fine i have the one on the car and tried a spare i picked up . they were working fine before that dumb a$$ who installed my indash messed with it. what im thinking of doing and this is just coming out of the top of my head rewire my front and rear speakers from the harnes in the back of the unit then just run a wire from the two front ones to the one in sail panel. will that work. i dont wanna get rid of the harnes in the back that way the speakers are running straigh from the head unit i buy the harnes adapter then if i decide to sell the car i can just trow in a crappy head unit. what do you guys think?

if they were working fine before he made the mess, and now they arent, then i still say something has crapped out on the amp.

it's possible to "chain" the front speakers to the rears, but i wouldnt advise this.

try this, if it doesnt work then you KNOW the problem is elsewhere...if you have a spare amp, try swapping everything; the amp, amp harness all of it...here's a little tip to seperate ground wires from power wires...take a speaker w/ a length of speaker wire attached, touch the ground side to a spot of bare metal, and then start touching the positive to the wires one by one until you get a sound. once you've found all of your positives, the rest are ground wires. just match the grounds by colors from the chart, and maybe you'll get lucky

i dont know what the problem is i put back the wires by color there suppose go i know i dint make a mistake beacuse i tripled check everything to see if i had connected a a wrong wire or something. ima go back outside and have another go at it if nothing turns up then ill come back to see how can i rewire from the same stereo harness in the back of the stock stereo.

IIRC, the monsoon system uses 2 way speakers in the doors. the woofers are powered by the amp and they tweeters are powered by the HU. i'll see if i cant find a more complete schematic for ya, or someone with Monsoon is more than welcome to chime in
