    Did you run new wires for the speakers? How do you have it set up? What are your settings on the deck and amp? Are your rca cables any good? I wouldn't hook up the other amp to test it, just troubleshoot ur setup

    does the amp turn on? did you use factory wiring for the speakers? did you forget the RCAs?

    i have had the 4 ch in before but took it out cuz the front gain was messed up and would cut off the speakers.. i already had all the wires ran for it..

    i would say try tapping it in with your existing deck to speaker wires
    i never done this but i heard its an alternative to running your wires through the doors
    when you use an amp

    what have you changed since the last time you had the amp working? was the amp hooked up to a factory hu first when it was working and after putting in a new hu it wont work?

    hes saying to use the stock speaker wires that first came from the deck to the speakers. like he said, running new wire from the deck to the speakers is best.

    i would unhook speaker wire from amp and hook a AA battery to the speaker wire if u hear the speaker make a pop noise then clearly its wired properly and working and i would focuse on the amp side
