Alright so I got all my recording gear today in the mail which includes:

Presonus Firebox
M-Audio BX5a Deluxe Monitors
MXL 990/991 Mic Set
Boom Stands, Cables, etc

So I get everything fired up and I was excited to start recording, but it appears that the 991 is not working. I've got the 990 hooked up and is working fine.

I've tried, switching the inputs on the Firebox, tried messing with the Device settings in Cubase LE4, tried switching the XLR cables, nothing seems to be working. Is there anything I may have overlooked which might bring this mic to life? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I really don't want to have to send these mics back to the States again

you sure you turned on phantom power?
Ive pulled that move a few times lol

I also could see a dead mic coming though the mail. You may have to return it for a swap.

I tried adding a Stereo track and it seems to be recording now, but suddenly playback is no longer working, all I hear is the click track when I hit play. Why would that happen?
