Question about Music
YES 100% YES. Even if it is passing signal, you will most likely find that the Capacitor has gone bad. Replace it with a new one, of the exact same Voltage and value. (Capacitors like this usually go either partial or full short or open circuit.)
But that is NOT the only cause of speaker coils blowing, there maybe a problem with your output devices. If after you replace all capacitors and resistors (If any) with exactly the same or better rated components, and there is NO change, then you most likely have an Output device issue.
There are indeed protection devices called MOV's or Polly switches, basically a device that goes in series with the wires, to positive and negative, now if the current exceeds the value you have chosen, it enters a Very High resistance stat in a nano-second or so, and cuts off the damaging signal from blowing the Voice Coils.
