Are you sure they are dead? (ie. have you tried them with a totally independent power source and eliminated all the wiring). Am I right in thinking you are just running these from a battery (and not charging off the engine?). In which case its difficult to see how you could supply too much voltage? My money would be on a dodgy connection somewhere...
