I'm trying to hook up a Polk Audio PA500.4 and 2 pairs of Polk Audio MM6501's and I'm using the AOEM-FRD24 converter/adapter to supply the amp with the line in and remote. Now, I connected the adapter to the factory (6cd changer no factory sub) to the HU and I am still getting sound from the stock speakers and no remote on the amp. I have 3 OEM speakers still connected and only 1 aftermarket to the amp and both RCA's (front and rear) connected. The amp works, it turns on when I patch the remote cable to the blue wire on the OEM harness, but then what's the point on using the adapter. Am I doing something wrong? I've tried searching the entire web and still no luck. Got the truck with no interior at all lol...
I haven't connected all 4 speakers yet because I still need to trim the door panels for proper fitting.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok I am trying to understand.. Did you run wires from the amp to your 4 speakers? You have to disconnect the speakers from the factory harness... 4 rca's from hu to amplifier?
I am sorry if my questions are retarded but I have to ask to know where you are at..
The point of the adapter is to take the audio signal and convert it to RCA so you can get the signal to your amp. It sounds like you dont have something plugged in right. Make sure you're plugging in your speaker harness, the way I understand it is that the speaker harness from the HU plugs into the Metra harness, it needs those speaker wires for the input to convert signal.
If you are still getting music from stock speakers then you have something not connected right.
