The amp that powers the factory speakers, not all Montes came with them.

As for the factory amp, I would check the wiring and make sure it is all good for starters

Have you checked the stereo wires also?

The radio ground is within that harness for the amp somewhere, also there's one in the radio harness also.

Does the stereo go out when the speakers go out?
