Default HELP speaker wiring conundrum

I recently purchased a used 4x12 cab and I just realized that one of the speakers is not outputting sound despite appearing to be in working order. Included is a crappy diagram I drew representing how these speakers are wired. Speaker 4 is the one not working.

I know very little about speaker wiring (my apologies) so any feedback would be very helpful. Also each speaker is 16 ohms.

Thank you.

With four 16ohm speakers it can be wired as either 4ohm or 16ohm - if it's 4ohm then one speaker been O/C would make only one speaker not work.

I would say it's almost certain the speaker is duff.

Unfortunately your diagram didn't make it.
