SOURCE: no sound from the amp
Make sure that your amp turn on wire is connected from behind the radio to your amplifier. Usually the turn on wire is a blue wire but it can be any. This blue wire connects from the blue/white wire behind the radio to your small connection turn on connector on the amps power connections. You have 3 ( 12V , Ground, Switch or the smallest connector) Also check the amplifiers fuses, and the main powerline fuse as well. If this doesnt work then write back to me.

check all fuses on the unit, pull them all.
look for a way of resetting the amp.
LEAVE THE MAIN FUSE OUT TILL THE INSTALL IS COMPLETE!!!
that way you wont short a screw driver across the terminals on to the chasis.

There are several things that could cause this that i know of, bad ground not being one of them.
A bad ground terminal should cause a noticeable distortion in sound and cause the amplifier to turn on and off.
If you are getting power and no sound, the first and easiest thing i would check is your RCA wires. Replace them with known good wires.
If that does not work, are you positive the speakers you have hooked up to your amplifier are not blown?
If available, use a DVOM to check resistances on the coils on your speakers. An open lead reading indicates a blown voice coil.
Also make sure that your speakers are each hooked up to a positive and negative terminal, as some amplifiers have two positives next to each other and two negatives, while others go + - + -.
Your amplifier could also have bad input or outputs, but i would try these other easy fixes before resorting to buying a replacement amplifier.
The only other cause to my knowledge would be bad RCA outputs on your head unit.
If possible try with a head unit you know the outputs work on.
Hopefully one of these suggestions solves your problem.

the output is blown. It is in need of service.
There are many different ways that an amp can fail but the two most common failures are shorted output transistors and blown power supply transistors (< those are not blown). There are several types of protection circuits in amplifiers. The most common are over-current and thermal. The over-current protection is supposed to protect the output transistors. Sometimes it doesn't work well enough to prevent the failure of the output transistors but it will work well enough to shut the supply down before the power supply FETs are destroyed. If the amp remains in protect mode, goes into protect mode or blows the fuse as soon as the remote voltage is applied, shorted output transistors are almost certainly the cause.

Yes you can use a y to go to all four. Or you could bridge the four speakers wires onto the two outputs for 1 channel
