Unlikely to have damaged the speaker, but it depends, of course, on what you were playing. To my knowledge, Sonos designs their internal amplifier so that it doesn’t damage the speaker when playing music at 100%.

Sonos reports the volume as a percentage, whereas Alexa reports it as a level from 1-10. Which did you use? More here: 

Since the amp and speaker in Sonos devices  are designed to work as a matched set, there really shouldn’t be any damage caused by full-volume operation, at least for a short period of time.
