Discovery 1 stereo wiring + amps headache

can somebody school me on this?

Here's the current situation, right rear and rear door speakers (+ amp in the case of the rear door) don't seem to work. It doesn't look like power is going to the rear amp either. I'm not sure if there's a fuse blown, the amp is dead (apparently common) or both. I'd just like to fix it...
Any ideas?

Are you using the factory stereo?

No sir, a Kenwood that replaced the Kenwood that was already in it when I got it. I reused the wiring harness that was already in the dash.

For the speakers, i wired from the deck to the outputs on the amp. The adapter that I had originally sounded awful. I'm not currently using the rear door speaker. I plan on replacing the speakers in it and rewiring it as well.

Where is the other amp? (not the one in the rear door)

Passenger side footwell. Remove the glovebox for better access.
