The harness was the metro 70-5701 the door speakers had adapters so they plugged up just like the factory ones I suspect the ax jack placements on back of stereo may be issue

Hello. My name is***** can help you with your question.

Are you sure there isn't an external amp in the configuration here? Most of the explorers with the mock sound system did have an external amp. What this means is that pre-outs go to the amp, and in the speakers attach to that amp. Just as the sub takes a pre-out and amplifies it. Is it possible that you Have not connected the pre-outs on the head unit to the existing amp?
