Center console speaker wiring for 01 tj

I've seen a few threads on here regarding the replacement of the center console sub. When I bought my jeep the sub never worked. So this weekend I decided to put a new one in. I went to the local Walmart and picked up a 6.5" Sony speaker. It's 4ohm bi-directional speaker. Where I am having trouble is with the wiring. I have the black and grey wires going to the positive lead on the speaker and the red and brown going to the negative lead. I have tried various combinations also but get zero sound out of the speaker. All other speakers work except for the center console. I have tested the fuse in the fuse box and it is good for the sub.

Thanks in advance

use gray (+) and black (-). Even though the amp has 4 leads, it cannot be bridged. Read more into this here:

Thanks, I read that post earlier and I think I missed something. Are you guys saying that I just need to hook up the grey wire and black wire only? And then just tape off the red and brown wire as they are not used?

The other thing too just popped in my head I have an after market stereo (Sony) you mentioned amp, is there a factory amp or was that part of the oem stereo?

There is another post by member Julietkilo. He put the oem amp on a testing rig to get some accurate readings. Just tape off the brown and red wires.

The amp in the console is part of the original system. If your Sony was wired correctly it should work as it was part of the original speaker harness. I have an alpine and I am running the line out to an amp under the back seat and a kicker 6" sub in the oem console with lots of polyfil.
