Since there is no single crossover for two speakers it is likely both speakers experienced the same audio trauma and blew together. Something like microphone feedback will take thenm out in a literal heartbeat.
The 301's sometimes have an element in series with the tweeters that looks like a little light bulb (or it could be a fuse, too) and it is designed to blow before the tweeters die. They're easy to find if you remove the woofer to get some maneuvering space inside. If they'rethere and blown (visible) you can either wire aroundthem and be careful in the future or get some more.
Do a web search for "tweeter protection fuse".
If the tweeters did take the hit get on eBay and find some more, plus think about installing protectors if you can't avoid excessive distortion or power going to them.
Regarding pwoer vs distortion, the latter will kill tweeters in a blink so don't think a modest amp is safer than a powerful one. The modest amp will distort sooner.
Sounds like you have the ground and live possibly the other way around from the head unit to the speakers. The reason for you hearing it from both the tweeter and the speaker is that the tweeter is connected in parallel to the speaker. Swap the wiring and try it.
Cable type is dependent on length of wire, for optimal results. Make sure both speaker cables are the same length, and as short as possible. Under 10 ft you can use 18 gauge wire, and over that length, a 16 wire. Extremely long connections might warrant a 12 wire, but few amplifiers can handle such high resistance without seriously distorting the sound.
Determine the series from the label on the back and get yourself one or a pair (preferred, so they match sonically) of new woofers and replace the broken one. Carefully observe the + and - leads and replicate them on the replacements.
Sometimes you can snag a pair of whole speakers cheaply, too. Then you might end up with one spare 301 and one for parts. I use a single 301 IV as my Rear Surround, suspended on the wall behind my seating position. They also do well as Center speakers. The Series IV is also made of some kind of plastic composite which is bullet-prrof compared to the previous particle board models. I had one hit the floor from 5 feet up and it doesn't have a scratch. Get familiar with the models as they are all different in their tweeter arrangements. For example, the IV's are designed for corner placement with one tweeter facing inward at 45 degrees and one on the opposite diagonal corner of the box facing 180 degrees opposite the front tweeter, into the corner for a bank shot.
On this reciever you have rear surround and rear back spkrs, if your using the surr back they have to be assigned if unassigned in the settings. If using rear surr spkrs change your surr field to 5ch stereo and your rear speakers will work.
There is no 7.5 unless you have 5 subs the 7 is the total number of speakers and the .1 is the number of subs in the system
There is no wall mount bracket for the VCS-10. It was not designed to be wall mounted. Your best solution is to mount a 22"x8" shelf to the wall 4-6" below the TV. Make sure it is mounted sturdy enough to support 10lbs.
you should install 2 8 or 10 inch wooffer on the back seat install mid range and tweeter its not very expensive it gonna sound great with that trunk you can do anything you whant 6x9 its sound like crap even the expensive one
Receivers like this will incorrectly decode rear channel audio and pass it on to the rear channels as distorted audio. Make sure the source being used really has rear channel information encoded into it. It could have other issues but check this first.
