    i'm wondering if there is any way that i can check that all of the speakers are in fact working on my 4 10 cab? i know i could take the grill off and remove each speaker and do the unplug thing but i don't want to go through all that. this questions sounds stupid but humor me.

    Put your ear close at a reasonable volume. Check each speaker individually. Alternatively, you can use a 9 volt battery and hook it up to the cab. Just tap it to the terminals on a 1/4" cable and watch for movement.

    Your really must test them all individually, there's no easy way out here, not unless you have a soundmeter to do a nearfield check on each driver.
