"Spontaneous Speaker Combustion" is usually a symptom of an amp gone
bad, not a speaker.  every once in a while an amp will start putting out
DC ont he speaker terminals, slowly heats the speaker up, if there's
enough voltage and not enough cooling, eventually it can burst into
Anything that could be fixed using a fuse?  either in line to the amp, or to 
the speaker?  Any other simple fixes?
