Jamo 507

Bought Jamo 507 Speakers last week. Beautiful cabinets. Cones all good. Unable to test. One speaker has very low volume. Switched out speakers with other. And still low volume. Switched channel on amp. Switch wires later. Tried All the combos but still low volume no life. no obvious signs on crossover. It’s almost like open wires are crossed someplace. can't get To the woofers buried deep in the cabinets. Sure would appreciate any clues.
And by the way the good speaker sounds amazing. Wow. I think it’s called the Denmark sound.
Connected second set of speakers to amp to confirm both channels work as should.
Thanks folks

Well, that's something you should work on. How complicated can it be to unscrew drivers and get a multimeter to find voice coil dc resistance of each unit out of circuit. How is the cabinet back side, can you access woofers through terminal/vent opening?

I appreciate your work in finding that diagram. More then I’ve found. I’ve checked the drivers. They are all ok. I can see the lower woofer. Of course not the top. It appears that the rear cabinet has been glued. I sincerely think the problem is the crossover. I need to remove it . It is extremely tight fit. There is no working room. Poor design in that way. I’m going to take the binding plate off to look at the bottom of the circuit board for some)meshing obvious.
 
Crossover leaking

The bottom of the crossover board shows corrosion where all of the speaker wires connect. There is no leakage from the inductors, resistors , or caps. Wish I could send a pic . Can’t figure how to attach an image to this posting. Anyone ever had all the speakers wire corroded before. Clean and resolder for sure
 
Crossover

Yes rosin. Not tested yet. I have not disconnected the wires yet. I sprayed it all with deoxit and cleaned it all up. I need a better soldering iron anyway. I’m new to this. I learned when I was a kid, 60 years ago from my grandfather, but have forgotten most of it. Also the connectors were all finger tight, pretty loose. Keep the info coming . So far you’re right on the money.
 
Well folks I found that the lower midrange was testing very low . Less then 1 ohm. Disconnected it . Plugged in tower and boom. It’s sounds fab. A little lite in the mids but just great. I see what they mean by the Danish sound. Very nice. Turns out I had not tested all the drivers, sloppy work or just memory issues, who knows. I very very much appreciate all of your assistance and support. Now I’m looking for a mid range speaker for a Jamo 507 Speaker part number 20245. Or equivalent. Will try to reach Jamo direct. Or if yous have any ideas they would be most welcome.
