Sorry about your loss. I presume that you blew 2 woofers in each speaker. So I would not immediately suspect that the speaker crossover failed since it would have to fail in 2 separate speakers at the same time.
I'm puzzled by your comment “the sound got louder”. In my experience when a speaker blows it simply goes quiet, no drama at all. So wondering about why the volume level would increase. Any chance that you live with a significant other who wanted a little more volume for a particular song?
And just for my personal curiosity, are you running with a subwoofer? If so what was your amplifier crossover set at for the Polk RTi8 speakers?
