Trouble with Fader...

Hey all -

I have a Pioneer DEH-1100MP head unit (Pioneer DEH-1100MP CD receiver at Crutchfield.com) in my '90 base model YJ. I used an after market wiring harness in the install process.

I also replaced the front speakers a while back with some replacement 4X6's that I bought from Crutchfield.

I just got a cheap speaker box for Christmas (RTS3000T - Speaker System Enclosure) and installed it this weekend.

I used 16 gauge speaker wire from the head unit wire harness to the speaker box in the rear, following the color code of the wire harness (green, green/black, violet, violet/black) for the left and right rear speakers.

For some reason, I cannot get the fader to work correctly after the install. If you adjust the fade setting to 0, you hear music out of the front and rear speakers - grand. If you adjust the fade to complete front, then you still hear music out of the front and rear speakers - bad. If you adjust the fade to complete rear, then there is no sound at all, just complete silence from the whole system.

???

Help me, please...

Thanks -

update...

I am reading that the head unit has 14 watts RMS system power (50 watts peak). The speaker system has 60 watts RMS system power (300 watts peak). Is it just that I need an amp to drive up the head unit wattage?

Most likely there is something wrong with the deck.. it should function right if it was wired correctly. You may know but here are the wire colors.
FL- white /white black
FR- grey/grey black
RL-Green/Green black
RR- purple/purple black.

Figured out the issue. I had installed the after-market wire harness from Crutchfield when I installed the new Pioneer head unit. That harness was made for the stock radio in a 90 base model YJ, which had no rear speakers. I disconnected the rear speaker wires from the radio to that harness, and then attached them to the rear speaker wire coming from my rear speakers. Voila! Done.
