Default Braun L810 Mid Kapoot! Help!

I have a fully recapped set of Braun L810's that I did myself. No problems until I messed around with the phase switch on my Krell KSP 7B. I am no longer getting a signal in my Right Channel Mid driver. The 2 7" base drives and the 1" tweeter have no issues. Any thoughts. Have I blown a coil or worse, the driver?

How do I trouble shoot this? Any help would be much appreciated.

I would check the coil using a multimeter or a small battery. If the coil is ok, i would check for a bad solder joint in the crossover or a bad contact in the wiring..

bobodioulasso could you please explain how to do this. Am I looking for continuity and or resistance? My build skills are good, but analysis is not.

Simplest way: using some piece of wire, apply brievely an 1.5v battery to the coil terminals (disconnected from crossover).
If the driver works you should hear some click noise from the driver.
If the coil is open you'll get no noise.
Or use an ohmmeter (in ohm x 1) and check for continuity (in reality a few ohms).
