    We need more information than this. What kind of car is it? Does it have a factory amp?

    I bet you didn't match up those wires as well as you thought you did

    The first time I put my PG T500.2 on my fronts, I reversed the polarity of one of the speaker wires...took me 10 minutes of scratching my head to realize that. Double check everything...and then check it again.

    Have you hooked the remote for the factory amp to your head unit? In my truck the remote wire for the factory amp is the power antenna lead and it took me days to figure out why I wasn't getting any sound.

    If you remember what color it was that would be awsome but, thinking about it it shouldn't matter (i think) because we took the factory amp out and used rewired it.
