    What guage wiring do you have and are the + and - to the front speakers wired correctly and not out of phase?

    Pretty much everyone who amps their front speakers mounts the amp in the back and has no problems

    As autosparks said... Many, many peoples amps are in the rear of the car and have that length of wiring from the speakers so that shouldn't be an issue. As mentioned, check the connections and if your using high gauge wire change it to lower.

    Well you have 2 wires and a 50 50 chance of getting it right. How did you guess which was + and -?

    well the one wire has a white strip down it so i took that as it was the - wire on all of the speakers and the completley black wire i took as the + its just very strange how both front speakers are very distorted compaired to the back ones and there on the same amp can you think of anything else ?
