Default JBL Amp not working

I have a 97 Limited Edition, my son blew the rear sub and I replaced it with a boxed sub. It worked for about 2 days. As I was driving it home I noticed the bass starting to fade and a strong electrical burning smell, now nothing works in the rear and I have no bass tone coming from the other 4. I think I fryed the amp? Question: can I just change out the Amp or do I have to replace the entire autio system?

Might just be the subwoofer you replaced. I'd check for voltage to it with a meter. Ford's amps take quite a beating and keep going. Two explorers now and replaced subwoofers, but not amps. Also, see if the smell is from the amp or subwoofer. The amp is located on the passenger side just ahead of the rear wheel well.
