No way. None of the conceivable ways of burning out hardware are
sufficiently safe to intentionally mass employ them like this. If you could
overload the coil, the only imaginable way to burn out a speaker, it could
start a fire. This risk is at least significant enough that it's easier to
open the case than take it.
