yeah you can use it... you have to buy and adapter for like under 20$ and it has your jack plugs for your amp to plug into.. its really easy to install and depending on your wiring specs there might be two wires that you wont use... but other than that its easy.. look for the adapter at like best buy or some place simliar to that

Does anyone have the monsoon system with xm radio that shows the artist and song display while on xm? My dealer is telling me that the monsoon system will not display artist & song in xm on my 2007 grand prix gxp. XM tells me that is should. Anyone out there have that capability?

yes I have the same thing in my '07 grand prix gt. It does say the artist and song for whatever station XM or radio that is on. But seeing how its over a year since you posted this, then you probably figured it out huh

I,ve got a 2004 grand am Gt1 with a monsoon stereo and it sounds good on fm and great with a cd but it is not very clear when on xm. Is there a way to tune the antenna? It sounds like it has the treble and bass turned down. It is not clean like a cd. Any help would be appreciated.

I've got a 2004 grand am gt1 and it has excessive play in the steering gearbox.(The rack) and I would like to know if Gm should replace?

If I replace will a rebuilt rack be much better?
Thanks,

I just purchased a 2002 Firebird with a Monsoon
Radio with CD player. The Display for the time and station does not work. Can I do anything to correct this or do I have to live with it. Really don't want to have to buy a new stereo. Thanks

Nope... nothing. You'll have to go aftermarket or get a FM transmitter thing. Personally I've been using the FM thing for the Ipod, but I'm ready to move the stereo out of my pickup to the Santa fe. You'll need an accessory called a PAC-OEM-2 to wire the aftermarket head unit to the Monsoon factory amplifier, but the good news is you won't lose any of the punch that your current system has.

YES that is totally possible. The size of a new stereo you use can be a "1 1/2 DIN". You can also use the stock amplifier or use an upgraded one. You may find information on what works as a replacement for your vehicle at www.crutchfield.com or your trusted local car stereo store. One option I am going to use for my 98 TA WS6 is an Expandable Kenwood that has a motorized touch screen that moves in and out of the deck. You can also later add a GPS to this deck to work with the screen and also a module to have hands free cell phone use through the stereo with voice commands. You can even get a module to hook it up to the stock steering wheel controls if you car has those. One reason I am goind this way is because it is expandable so I dont have to have the money to buy everything at the same time.
NOTE
If the vehicle the Monsoon is in may become a collectors car such as the last generation Trans Ams I would suggest that one keep the stock unit to have available to reinstall later so that it can be put back to perfect stock condition which is always the most desireable for a collectors car. Also if you decide to change cars you can put the stock deck back in and take your upgrade to put in to your new car.
