no sound coming from speakers

i bought this orvis only a few days ago and i just now see theres no sound in it...( i removed what looked like a bypass when i saw the amp removed guess i shouldnt have cus 1 speaker was working before i did but i cant remember the wires that were bypassed)
i find it theres no stock amp in the car is there a way to bypass it? this orvis comes with a aftermarket pioneer head unit and only 2 sony xploits exist in the car , i just bought 2 10" kicker subs with kicker box and db audio 1000w amp with that boss wiring kit will install that too but how do i bypass the stock amp for the speakers?

Was the bypass you removed under the driver side rear seat?

original post from SJZhttp://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/z...bypass-254357/

Edit: you just connect the speakers "+ and -" to the matching "+ and - imput"
for example
#1) left rear speaker + (white w/red stripe)
needs connected to
#5) left rear + imput (brown w/yellow stripe)

Also that chart will let you reuse some of the stock wiring for your new amp so you don't have to run as many wires back.
2 constant 12volts and 1 remote(if you use this you may have to check the wiring to head unit to make sure it is hooked up right.)

I bypassed the stock amp, just connect the corresponding wires like what's said above. So my speakers are running off the deck, and subs on an new amp

That's odd, maybe in the process you knocked the other one loose?
I had to redo a couple of mine in the end.

If i remember correctly the chart was wrong. A couple of the blue were really light blue but the stripes were the right color.

I run my door speakers off a 240w pioneer amp. My factory amp is still hooked up also. I'll be bypassing it soon though, if it isn't already bypassed. I run two 12" pioneers off a 1000watt Kenwood monoblock class d amp.

All my door speakers are pioneer, along with my headunit. I have 2 JVC 6.5s in the rear hatch, they are tapped into the rear door speakers.

That is a pretty sweet idea I might have to do that.

Thats sweet.
Can you tell the difference from driver seat?
I imagine it makes a big difference for anyone riding in back but I usually don't have many passengers at once.
