if there is no sound at all even if the antenna is down you sould ear the speaker scratching so that is maybe your speaker or even the radio amplifier so if you dont mind to keep your car all original i think you should change all your car stereo it will sound better than ever but if you want to keep every part of your car stock you sould go ask your question to a car audio seller

it might also only be the wiring of your speaker

With the power antenna down, you will still get a hum sound or static from the speakers. Make sure your radio is connected to the speakers. If you are brave, remove the instrument panel that holds the radio, ( Medium difficulty) and take the radio in for testing. If the radio works, recheck the wire connections to the speakers. Will the power antenna go up when you turn on the radio?
