    first time installing sub system

    i just got 2 12'' TREO dvc 2 ohm subs from a friend he recommended getting a power acoustik 6000d amp and so that is what i got. i have started to install everything and i know that the speaker is fine(only installing one for right now) and i am getting power to the amp but nothing from the sub. i am using the factory head unit in my 2000 silverado so i bought a rca line out adapter and got it all wired up but i am still not getting anything from the sub at all

    balance the radio left to right and see if you get output. Possible the loc is out of phase.
