Default need help with my 6.5's

i got a new set of DA 6.5's from Logan on here, the driver front 6.5 has never worked since i got my jeep, i replaced both sides and had the right side working fine, i tried tying the left into the right output because I figured the left output was bad on the radio, but now i have no left OR right fronts =(
ive still got the back door 6.5's just fine but nothing coming from the front doors, any ideas?

My installer at work said try unhooking the tweeters in the front dash because they might be throwing the ohm load off?
i havent tried it just yet because i have been working so much but im looking for more input for when i do start working on it probably tomorrow
any ideas would be great

i also unhooked the left from the right output to see if that remedied the problem but still no fronts

So when you hooked up your new mids, the same problem occurred?

It sounds like the circuit in the speaker wire is broken somewhere. You can try tracking it down or just replace the full run of wire from the deck to the front-drivers' speaker.

test the speakers on something other than your jeep.

it sounds like the front outputs of your jeep amplifier are dead.

If you have an aftermarket headunit, you can bypass the jeep amplifier and your speakers will most likely be louder than they would be if the jeep amp worked.

From the HU, you take front right and front left speaker wires and go from head unit to mids.

Oh ok I think it's more than likely already like that but I'm not positive
I know on the I believe negative wire for the left side it runs into a white harness
