I would suggest dealing with the speaker exchange in florida. You can take the speaker out and mail it to them. They will either match it up to a replacement or repair it for you. Their prices are really good and they have a super quick turn around. I have used them several times with awsome results.

It's one of three things things: First, examine where the speaker wires are plugged into the receiver. Are any of the copper strands touching one another? If so, remove the excess stripped wire and reinsert it. Problem solved.
Test two: bad speaker. to test, swap the speakers (hook the right speaker to the left speaker jacks and the left speaker to the right speaker jacks). If the RIGHT side now cuts out, you have bad speakers.
If the speaker on the LEFT jacks still cuts out, your amplifier is going bad (which could cost between $50-$200 to repair).
Either. You can probably order a new driver (speaker, no box) from Mission, then put it in yourself. This usually involves 4 screws around the speaker, then disconnecting a coulple of wires, putting the new one in and letting the speaker bed in for a while. You've then got a working speaker, and a nice paperweight.
If you have more money, and fancy an upgrade, you can buy some new speakers. An odd one wouldn't match the others, so it would be 4 satellites and a centre required. The subwoofer should be fine.
The back plate is definitely snap off. As teodo mentioned, do not pull the entire rubber backing off. On the bottom and sides of the back plater there are two snaps, each directly on either side of the wider ridge along each edge.
The top is a different problem. The snaps are on the speaker side and clip onto the bottom of the upper edge of the back panel.
To remove the back plate: Start on the bottom of the speaker at the back edge. Pull away the rubber edge carefully to expose the joint between the back panel and the speaker box. Along the center of the of this joint on the panel is a wider ridge. Place a thin flat edged tool on one side of the ridge, pry, then push forcibly until the inner edge of the back plate is apart. Do this to each of the edges on the bottom and sides of the speaker. Don't peel away any rubber on the top side of the speaker. Press your flat edged tool into the joint and lift gently the back plate side of the joint before pushing it out. This will disengage the clips on that edge.
If you're looking to replace the batteries, they are 3.5V 5200maH.
Yeppers, when you where changing out those speakers, you shorted them and that in turn blew out the audio output IC inside this unit. This will require you to disassemble the unit, locate the blow output IC abd unsolder it, get a new audio output IC, put some heatsink compound on the back of the new IC, resolder the chip and reasassemble the unit. But before you turn on the unit, double check those speaker wires again to make sure they are not shorted as if they are, even one tiny strand, this unit will blow the IC again. Never work the speaker on any solid state electronic amp when they are plugged in and on. Good Luck
