Please help! Unusual problem

I've had my jeep for a couple years now and I was recently going off roading when I went over a small hill and landed somewhat hard. As soon as I landed my radio and overhead speakers went out and my buzzer relay started going off. All the fuses are still good. Nothing that I see has been knocked loose or shorted out. I even replaced the buzzer relay in case that was it but it still goes off unless I keep a wire disconnected. My radio and overhead speaker are the only things not working.
The pictures below are of the fuse box, The old bad buzzer relay that was going off(the rust is just cause I left it in the rain after taking it out and replacing it), and the wire that I have to disconnect in order for the relay to stop buzzing. I have to disconnect the black wire in the first picture for it to stop. I'm not sure what those two wires are really even for.
If anyone sees something that is missing or has any information to help me fix this I would really appreciate it.

Check both sides of the radio fuse to see if you have any power there. If you do then the problem lies in a wire from there to the radio. Don't know where the buzzer gets its power, may be from the same source as radio...can't recall what makes the buzzer go off, was it seat belts ?......if so there might be a problem at the seat belt.

I don't see a fuse in the radio slot..

garyk the radio runs off the acc fuse. ive been messing with radios for a long time and its not too uncommon that a warm fuse getting jarred will break it. check the fuse in the back of the radio. if your radio wont work then obviously your speakers wont. if you are referring to an overhead light that wont come on then im not exactly sure where it gets power but its possible that its wired to radio power. check that fuse and let us know what happens.

also check the contact point where you hit and see if maybe you broke a ground connection. that could cause it as well.

Alas my problem is solved. It turns out that the mini 10amp IOD fuse in the fuse box under the hood was out. I was never even aware it had anything to do with my radio but for anyone with this issue out there in the future. Make sure you check every single fuse whether you think it matters or not.
