Aftermarket deck driving me insane

Trying to install an aftermarket deck... Have a 2002 Boxster with door speakers and the front amp. Used the metra adapters... And all I get is Sub... Nothing out of speakers. Really pissing me off. Deck is a Pioneer MVH-X360BT.

Any ideas?

Can you provide more information on how you wired it up? There are several possibilities:

1. You didn't hook up the wire that turns on the amp
2. You used the outputs from the head unit that are designed to go directly to the speakers instead of the outputs designed to go to the amp
3. There is some damage to the headunit

Good luck with your project.
