Exclamation Radio Problems

Alright so I made the mistake of leaving exposed wires open from the harness for the radio. The red and black wire touched and sparked quite a bit. The speedometer and radio fuses were blown and I replaced them. Now the radio turns on but there is dead silence from my speakers. they are not blown. Additionally the Flash to pass is not working, but the high beams work. I am hoping this is a relay of some sort. I am hoping this is a simple fix, any help is appreciated. Its mach 460, Kenwood excelon 796, JVC 13w6v2 with Kenwood amp. Custom inverted box.

Yeah, you post in the middle of the night and nobody has figured out why your modified stereo doesn't work over the internet in three and a half hours.

What amp are your speakers running to? Do you still have the factory 460 amps? Did you just install the head unit?

How did you connect the head unit to the factory wiering? Did you use the adaptor? You could have also fried the factory amps

The interesting thing is that the amp for my subwoofer does not light up meaning the rem cord isnt drawing power. there is nothing inbetween the subwoofer amp and the headunit so It must be a bad head unit. and I know that the internal amps might be blown but all three sounds unlikely. Either the headunit is bad or all 4 of my amps are destroyed... unless theres something im not getting. I know the subwoofer amp is most likely still good because I just bought it and the fuses are not blown.
