How to Replace Monsoon Speakers in Your Vehicle


Monsoon speakers might come installed in your vehicle. Since they are proprietary systems, you cannot simply hook up an aftermarket head unit, amplifier or speakers and expect them to work seamlessly with the rest of your stock Monsoon unit. However, you can specifically purchase speakers that are designed to be added to Monsoon units. Therefore, they are the most cost-effective way to improve your system without replacing it in its entirety.
