Did you have your fronts set to full band and double bass set to on in the AVR settings to duplicate LFE's to your fronts and subwoofer both? Your AVR and subwoofer should be okay, i dont see the AVR getting harmed at least, it had its thermal protection circuitry activated .Your subwoofer would have its own amp as it's an active sub so maybe that's okay too, but you should check it. I would take out the AVR and subwoofer from the room they're presently in, place them in another room and turn them on, if you have an audyssey mic, hook it to the avr and see if the subwoofer is getting detected by the avr and playing the audyssey test tones.
For the burning smell you speak of coming from the front left speaker, it has to be the voice coil getting burned through overheating, that is what causes burning smell in most cases. The voice coil,magnets and the speaker cones would need replacement. If you have an Energy service center, i would send the speakers there, let them know a user error caused the drivers getting burned and you are willing to pay for driver replacement, they'll quote you the service charges. I had a friend who blew up a tweeter because of user error, the manufacturer authorized service center did not refuse to service his speaker but you have to pay for it.
