It looks like the DefTech BP7006 uses a 4½" midrange and a tweeter on its front. From your description, it sounds like the midrange isn't working. The tweeter could also be out or you simply could not be hearing it without the midrange driver also functioning. Tweeters can be tough to hear all by themselves.
One of three things is wrong. These are listed in the order of most to least likely:
(1) The midrange is blown.
(2) Both the midrange and tweeter are blown.
(3) The crossover is bad.
If you want to hear if only the midrange is out, you'll need to remove the grill. It's been ages since I've played with a pair of DefTech speakers but the grills used to just slide down like a pair of panties (God, I was in the industry for way too long! ). Then you can put your ear right up against the tweeter to hear if it is working.
If the driver(s) or crossover is bad, replacement is the only option. I have no idea what Definitive charges for their drivers but most companies are in the $50-100 range. You may want to call your local DefTech dealer to find out. You could also call Definitive themselves at (410) 363-7148.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

It's easier to check if both the midrange and tweeter are really blown. You'll have to take them out to replace them, anyway. Do it now. Then, outside of the speaker, hook up each driver to your amp. Ramp up the volume slowly as you can damage them easily in this situation, but they should put out music. If they don't, they are blown. Replace them and you should be fine.
A word of warning: When you take out the midrange and tweeter, note which wire goes to where. It's important to hook them up that way again.
