Polk towers, 11 circa 1989 Blown

My high school son had a party and the speakers no longer have any volume.
Do I throw them out ?

    Going to need to do some troubleshooting. Have you tried a known working speaker to make sure it's not the electronics?
    | Front - Dynaudio Emit M20 | Center - N/A | Rear - Polk Monitor 4 | Sub - N/A |
    | AVR - Yamaha Aventage RX-A1020 | Preamp - Dared MC-7P | Amp - B&K Reference 4420 |
    | Turntable - Yamaha PX-3 | Cartridge - Dynavector DV-20X2H | Digital Source - AURALiC Aries Mini |
    | TV - LG 60" 4K | Gaming - Xbox One - PS3 - New 3DS XL - Nvidia Shield TV |

    This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality
    Embrace this moment, remember, we are eternal
    All this pain is an illusion

    Do NOT toss them. If you're going to take the loss instead of repairing them, karma them to someone who will repair them.

    That being said, first let's make sure the MWs are not seized, and then do a continuity check across each of the 3 driver coils. If all checks good there, we need to look at the XOs.

    Now that's my kind of party. :*
    Agree lets see if we can get to the bottom of this first, then you can make an informed decision.
