At one point there was a loud bang from one of the speakers, kind of a "pop" sound. But loud as hell. At that moment I noticed that I messed up, so I connected a source and tried to feed it some music to see what happens. Both speakers seem to sound okay from what I can say, but could it leave some permanent damage?
Yeah I know, I am dumb, lesson learned.
If there are any drivers blown, it'll be apparent even at moderate volume. If it's not distorting and woofer isn't flapping, you're likely ok.
