Brakes squealing when new...

So I recently replaced my front pads and rotors and my rear pads. The rear doesn't make a noise, the fronts are loud. Rotors are Bosch and pads are Wagner ThermoQuiet. I bedded them in correctly, what could be the issue?

I thought they were quality? What would you recommend? Akebano Euros?

Did you use brake compound for the backs of the pads? If not, take them off and use some OEM brake compound on all the backs, and clean up and grease guider pins with the same compound while you're at it.

...but yeah I put on Akebono ceramic pads with Meyle Platinum rotors on all 4 corners, make less noise than OE. (not squeaking noise, just braking noise, didn't know I had any till I switched!)
