Take a look at this page and then post what connector exactly you plugged in where, what kind of car you have and what options (Bose/non Bose, CD changer/iceLink, phone).

Connector I is for CAN and line-out, the pins 1-6, 7 and 12 should be used and connected to the car. Connector III is for power, Bose, alarm and diagnostics. The Bose pin 1 should be connected to ground, otherwise the RNS-E will use the internal amp to power the front speakers (that are not connected) and the Bose amp will not receive a line out signal for the front speakers. Did you verify the wiring based on this?

Deffo seen this with a non BOSE harness, humming from front speakers and sound from rears.

Easy way to check, look at the 20 pin connector and see if all 6 pins for the amplifier are there. LF/RF/LR/RR/Gnd/Amp. I would say that LF/RF are missing.

Some BOSE leads have the sepaker wires, so thats not always a good test.
