Didn't know that, thank you. Makes sense now why it didn't work. Was reluctant to use the new radio in case I cross-wired something and blew it out. Shouldn't happen but not interested in ruining a $500 radio when I've got a cheapo sitting on a pile.

Got my front speakers figured out, now just looking for a place to set the amp. Final step will be looking for or providing hot wires to the console and putting the radio in. More details to come but feels like progress.
