Well I removed the subwoofer assembly from the rear shelf of the car.
1) There was NO connection problem
2) I took the reading with my multimeter, of the subwoofer, it was 4 ohms
3) The amplifier was enclosed in a metal casing. the metal casing was soldered to the circuit board, for not apparent reason, other than securing it.
So nothing visually wrong, I guess it's time to take some voltage readings.
Does anyone if the output voltages are 12v or if they are stepped down to something else.

Well I pulled the door panel off, and removed the speaker. I had a junk speaker laying around from an old Mercury, Capri I have. I had replaced the ones in the Capri and I had this set just laying around. I wire the speaker to the radio and turned it on, and the speaker worked, i removed all the rest of the speakers and they all worked. Being I just bought the Jaguar, last month. I have no idea what happened to the radio to cause all the speakers not to work. The tweeters did work and the bass unit did work. I have found my problem and started fixing the speakers. This is what I think you should do, pull one of the door panels off and try a different speaker on the one in the car. If it works there's your problem, if not at least you've elimanated that possiblity.
