You say it "looks like it has a good connection", but have you tested the wiring to make sure there's actually power?

my gf recently got a used 2000 civic and her speakers weren't working. I spent $20 and got her some new ones. the $20 pyle ones 6.5''
anyways, I hooked them up and only the right side speakers work.
The left one doesn't work and the speakers that were in there before wasn't working either. So now I have no idea what could be wrong with it.
I checked the pos/neg connections and the wire from car copper wires to speaker silver wire looks like it has a good connection.
I checked the volume -_- and I even tried changing the balance and fader to front left only and still nothing.
The speakers aren't broken because I switched it with a working one and there was still no sound.
I have some pics but I don't think it'll help.
My guesses are it has something to do with the car wiring inside the door or maybe the stereo. How can i go able checking and fixing this problem?
I am a newbie at car audio, only thing I've had experience with is a simple amplifier to subs.
If there's no power, how do I find out which part is faulty?
The wires, the source?
Is it expensive to buy the meter because I wouldn't have much use for it afterwards? Or should I just take it to a shop and have them look at it?
