How would you know if part of an exakt speaker, such as an Akubarik, had failed? In theory it would sound odd but I wondered if there was any on-board diagnostics that you could use? It’s more likely to be a power supply or amp which may not be immediately obvious or point to what exactly (sic) has failed.

I would turn the volume down to 40 and play some music 

Put your ear near each speaker driver and see if it is producing music.

Alternately, I would use a sound pressure meter that gives you a graphical representation of all frequencies from 20 Hz-20,000 Hz and see if there are a block of frequencies that are missing
