My thoughts were a loose spade connector came off, too.
Did you mis-type the second part there? I thought in the OP you said you had two 4Ω speakers wired in series. He couldn't have had it running at 4Ω if that's the case.
IDK what the 700RB is rated to put out at 8Ω, but what are the speakers rated for? If he fried one (or both) I think you both just learned a valuable lesson. He needs to kill his own gear, and you shouldn't loan yours out to folks who you know don't have the knowledge to keep it safe
I'm still thinking it's a connection, though.
Hey, B-string, if there is something fried inside the driver, would the problem wait for the program to stop before manifesting itself? I.E. if the coil was right at melting temp (or whatever), would stopping playing, allowing it to cool, actually make something go wrong (like hot glue doesn't hold until it cools)?
