The heat is caused by the resistance due to the poor connection of a 1/4" connector.  It is quite amazing how hot a 1/4" plug/jack can become.  That is why it is not used as a pro connection (and other reasons-damping factor-again due to high resistance of the connection and so forth).

There is no way to know about the speaker.  Of course it could have been a blown speaker that caused the excessive current.

The only way to tell is to take the speaker out and see.  Put a 9V battery across the loudspeaker terminals and see if it "pops".  If it does-then that is a good sign.

If not you need to dig a bit deeper.

Depending on the plate and room available.  You might just have to drill out a larger hole ( a step bit is good for this)
