Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Any electrical component that receives a constant power feed can cuse a battery draw but if the problem started after having an amp installed then I would first suspect the amp. It isn't uncommon for an aftermarket amp to cause a draw.

An ignition off draw test would need to be done to determine what component is causing the draw. If you don't have an ammeter and are hoping to diagnose it yourself then I would recommend disconnecting the power feed from the amp, charge the battery properly and see if the battery stops dying.
