    When a speaker is blown, what happens to it's impedance? Does it go towards 0, or infinity, or does it not change at all?

    I was just thinking, if you had a cabinet where all the speaker were wired in parallel, and one of the speakers blew, and it's effective impedance became 0, wouldn't the total impedance of the cab then go to 0, which would be a real problem for tube amps?

    it usually breaks connection, and impedance goes to infinity. Rarely, it could short, but that is an awfully physically challenging thing to do...
