Not trying to sound like a dick, but did you check your fade and balance?


If so, there's a few reasons why they might not be working. Lose wires, blown amp channels, ect. I don't know what impedence the stock BOSE system runs, so maybe the new speakers didn't match up to the old ones?

Haha, glad you got it figured out!

So the stock Bose system is running 2ohm?
