Angry 96 328I HK Stereo Issue

Howdy, could use some help here. I have a 96 3281 equipped with the Harmon Kardon stereo and have lost all sound except for muffled noise from the rear deck speakers and front kick panel speakers. I suspect that my amp has shit the bed as this has been a progressive illness (lost fronts first, then rears). I don't want to spend the $100 on a used amp if it won't fix the problem, however driving without sound is leaving me with only the noise in my own head (aarrrgghhhh!!!!!). Is there a way to bypass the amp if it turns out to be the problem? I am capable with a multimeter and able to diagnose with the right guidance. Thanks.

Make sure all the conections to all the speakers are fine, and check the wires before you spend time bypassing the amp
