    Sorry to re-post this but I got no reply to my last one - not sure why!

    Anyway Briefly this time: After the volume had been turned way up on my amp (I did not know) I switched source from DVD (Off) to Satellite (On).

    I turned the volume down immediately but I am now worried that I may have damage one or all of my Speakers.

    How can I tell if I have?

    You should normally be able to tell whether you have damaged a speaker by listening to them as any damage would be audible.

    Would it be obvious in general listening or is there a such a thing as a test CD that will give me a better idea.

    It would be obvious in the sound - otherwise it doesnt matter I suppose. Never heard of a test CD to check speaker damage.

    Listen to a sound that you know well, a song by coldplay for example...

    It will be quite audible if any damage has occured...

    Put your ear close to the speakers, a sign of damage could be a sense of 'flapping' coinciding with bass...
