You can use a voltmeter set to measure resistance (at the lowest setting) and measure between the + and - terminals. If it does not give you a reading then the voice coil is blown. If it does, the voice coil is fine, as long as the reading is close to the specified DC resistance. You can also push the cone in evenly, using all 5 fingers, listening for any rubbing noises.

Anyway, it's hard to blow a W7 so I wouldn't sweat it too much.
