Salvage yards don't know any better. Any vehicle that didn't complete the recall prior to recycling will still have the ol' amps.

My '11 recall was performed and my upgraded amp did not neuter the system. Sounds great.

The defective amps were disconnected as part of the recall and some owners waited a few months for the replacement amps. So, the neutering of the system was simply to eliminate the amplifier's short circuit risk of electrically started fires while the new parts were awaiting delivery.

It was a 2 part recall/tsb/service.
1st part was to disconnect the amp until a permanent fix was available.
2nd part was to install new amplifier as the permanent fix.

I skipped the 1st part and will state that there was no degradation in sound quality when the amplifier was swapped out for the new one.
