What ROM are you running?
My guess is ElocityMod 1.3 and using DSP Manager to crank the volume up a little higher.
Did you notice any distortion before the speaker bought the farm?
If my guess was correct, the speaker is most likely toast. Distortion usually = clipping (when the waveform sent to the speaker is over amplified and gets choppy, sending a square waveform instead of a nice smooth sine wave) this is realllllly bad for the voicecoil of the speaker and not repairable 99% of the time without replacing the speaker itself.
There is a teardown thread in the A7 General section that may be of use to you.
