What amp did you use? Does it have 4 channels? If it is a 4 channel, why not bypass the factory harness and just run new speaker wire to each of the speakers? Then the fader wouldn't be a factor at all.

Your solution will also depend on where the amp wired into the harness, the impedance of the speakers you used, and what kinds of impeadance values your amp will tollerate.

The output from the radio (2-channels) and all four sets of speaker conections are present at the fader... so if the amp is between the radio's otuput and the fader... you should be able to wire speakers in parallel or series to accomodate what your amp will tollerate.

The Fader schematic will look somethign like this (with 2 of these controls stacked onto one common shaft) Each "layer" of the stack is one channel.


If you've used 4-ohm speakers AND your amp is 2-ohm stable, you could configure the wiring for each channel in parallel, to run both front and rear speakers without fader control, kinda like this...
