is there any way to tell if a speaker is blown with a multimeter?

Yes, set it to read resistance and see what your VC's read.

I think in your case the 200 ohm setting is also the continuity tester.

subs 3.8-3.9- would be 3.8-3.9 ohms

rears 5.0-5.1- sounds like their 6 ohm speakers

sounds like the fronts are blown?
