How do you repair a car amplifier if it's on but there's no sound?

What's the best way to fix my car amp if no sound is coming out? The entire car stereo has no sound right now, and I think my aftermarket amplifier is to blame. I want to repair it so I can pump up my favorite jams.

“If you have an aftermarket amplifier and sound is coming out, you’ll want to make sure your amp is receiving an input from your head unit.
To do this, unplug the RCA cables and try a new pair. If sound starts to come out afterward, your cables were the problem. If it’s still not working, you may want to take your vehicle to an audio repair shop for diagnosis.
Since you have an aftermarket stereo, you may also want to consider adding sound system coverage to your car insurance policy, as your upgraded stereo isn’t likely to be covered unless you do.
And if you want cheap car insurance quotes fast, go to Jerry. A licensed broker that offers end-to-end support, the Jerry app gathers affordable quotes, helps you switch plans, and will even help you cancel your old policy.”
