Check the wiring at the speakers themselves. It's possible that while you were moving the box one of the speaker wires came loose and shorted against the other terminal. A shorted speaker wire or damaged speaker will cause the amplifier to go into protect mode. If you have a digital multimeter with a resistance feature, you can test the resistance between the positive and negative terminals for each speaker.

Any of the line output converters on this link should do the trick.

You can not connect the speaker lines directly to the RCA inputs of your amplifier. But you can connect them to your amplifier if your amp has a high level input. Most of the time it looks just like the speaker jacks of the amp, but smaller. It will be labeled high level input or speaker input. Sometimes an amplifier will have a jack for a wiring harness just for this purpose. Some amplifiers have them and some don't.
If your amplifier does not have them, you can purchase a line level adapter at most anyplace that installs car stereos. it converts the speaker level to the proper level of the RCA input.
Just follow the instructions on how to connect it.
If you try to connect the speaker outputs directly to the RCA input of the amplifier you will blow up the pre-amp in your amplifier.
I hope this was helpful to you, if so a good rating is always appreciated.
Thanks and let me know if you need more help.

One word, No.
Distortion comes from the audio signal being clipped by one of your elements in the system.
What I would do first is measure the output of the radio with an oscilloscope to see if the signal is good. If it is then I would determine if the source of the distortion is the amplifiers or the speakers.
If it is the radio have that fixed or changed, If it it not, it might be a case of the radio overdriving the Amps causing them to clip the signal peaks. check for the max signal input of the amps and make sure the system is adjusted for that.
Let me know how this turns out.

Did you double check your work? Did you check the resistance of the fuses? Just because the fuse appears to be good, it can still be blown. Do you have access to a multimeter? You need to check and see if the head unit is receiving 12 Volts continuous which you put the multimeter probes to the black wire and the yellow wire. Then connect the probes to the black wire and the red wire. This wire should only have power when the car is cut on. If you are not getting 12 volts to these points, the problem is your wiring system somewhere...probably a fuse. If you are getting 12 volts, your head unit is garbage. I want to say it is the fuse.
