Maybe, My tweeters are 90 watts RMS which is very high for a tweeter. I doubt they well ever see anything like that even in peaks in normal music. I have read that slow blow fuses are the way to go as they handle any peaks better. I was looking for a fuse value high enough not to blow during listening, but that will offer some protection in the event of a wire coming out again.
I understand what your after, but as I say, I don't think it can really be done in an effective way, balancing the continuous blowing against protection is a difficult circle to square. I personally wouldn't trust a fuse to save a tweeter.
The problem is compounded because the nasty sound of a bad connection, like you heard, is at a high level, if this causes the amp to produce a clipped signal then the tweeters cone/dome hits it's travel limit, all the excess energy turns to heat --- result vaporised voice coils!
