Fried Cap's in Amp on Unused Channel - Remove or Replace?

Good morning/afternoon/evening people.
I use a 5.1 surround amp for the sole purpose of amplifying a sub-woofer. 3 capacitors and 3 resistors have emitted magic smoke and leaked.
They are however on the channel/circuit for the rear/surround speakers.
I could solder new capacitors on there, but if it is possible would just prefer to remove the damaged components and carry on using the amp.
I don't fully understand circuits but was hoping if someone with knowledge could take a look at the circuit diagram and tell me if just removing the fried components would allow me to still use the amp safely.
I've attached the circuit diagram of the amp board and highlighted the parts that have fried in red.
Looking forward to hearing your response.
Kind regards, Steve.
