Car audio for a newbie?

Do I need to buy speakers? What the hell is an HU? Can someone hold my hand while I try to get the speakers fixed in this pontiac vibe?

I'm a total car audio moron.
It's been determined that only one of the speakers in my girlfriend's 04 Vibe is working (the rear passenger-side, if it matters). I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about diagnosing the problem, and then getting it fixed.
Is it likely that the speakers in the car have just blown out? What are the odds that it is something else? Are there any step-by-step instructions available online that I can use to determine the problem myself?
If I take it to the reality-based equivalent of the Nerd Herd, will they do a good job installing new speakers -- or fixing the other issues -- for a reasonable price?
Finally: If it is the speakers that are busted, how does one go about selecting new ones to install? About how much am I looking at spending here?
