Is there a fuse for radio sound?
A car radio will have at least one fuse to protect the unit from things like power surges or other electrical issues. If too much current is sent to the audio system, this fuse will blow out and disconnect the circuit to save the main radio. On newer models, there are a variety of fuses for the entertainment system.
Why did my speakers suddenly stop working?
When all of the speakers in a car audio system all stop working at once, the problem is usually in the head unit, in the amp, or in the wiring.

What makes a speaker stop working?
Speakers are essentially large coils of wire, and when they “blow”, it’s generally that the coil is taking too much current and isn’t being cooled enough, and is damaged. If the speaker is completely destroyed, this may be that the wire in the coil is broken or shorted, so that it doesn’t operate.
Where is the fuse for the radio?
