go read this thread http://www.g6ownersclub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1199

i ran my wire from the center console fuse box (by passengers feet) under the carpet along passenger side of the car and into the trunk. works like a champ and i didn't have to tear anything apart.

Amp and Speaker stuff

I need help guys. First I am trying deperately to find the service manual for 06 convertible and no place including AllData has it yet. The reason I am looking for it is,

I need to know a few things about the stereo setup.
I have a GTP with the Monsoon and the crazy convertible speaker setup.

1. Where is the dam AMP in the vert?
2. How much power is it RMS and by how many channels?
3. Are the rear speakers single connection or are they coaxial and if they are do they receive seperate signal or just looped through?
4. The front speakers, are there three in each door are they three seperate signal sources to each or are the lower mid and the tweeter together and the middle one is off by itself or an other combination of the three?
5. What are all of the sizes.
6. DOes the Monsoon have a xover or is it on each speaker, or not at all?

I would love to swap out the factory POS sepakers for something decent but I need to know if, I can use the factory amp, or is it time for LOC with a four channel, or possibly a 6 Channel. I know that si always the best way to go, but when funds are low sometimes we can only do what is needed. Those speakers suck ass and any info would be very appreciated. Thanks In Advance.

amp power

I also want to upgrade the speakers. I also want to know what type of amp I have. I want to know if I can use some stronger speakers or if I have to change everything. Thanks.

With the monsoon system if you buy aftermarket speakers u really need to buy another amp to help them out.. the factory monsoon is junk for bass but works great for mids and tweeters.... I have the factory amp only powering my front speakers now .. and a 500W barley on to run polk momo MC690's and focal 6.5's that i added to my passenger doors... then an MTX 600 thunder powering 2 alpine type R's ....
