Need Help Diagnosing KRK RP8 Gen 2 Issue

Hi there, hopefully this is the appropriate place for this thread, so I'll give it a shot. I searched around and found a slew of other RP8-related problem but none seemed to match mine.

I've had the pair of speakers for ~2 years (no more warranty) - one works perfectly, on the other the woofer has completely stopped working. The tweeter works perfectly - nothing but silence from the woofer. I tested the resistance with my multimeter and the voice coil is still good. This leads me to believe it's either a problem with the amp or the crossover. I know nothing about either of these things or what they look like.

Can you suggest any further tests I can conduct, or link me to a useful resource, possibly with pictures? I can't find any repair shops to give me the time of day, and would really like to try to fix this on my own so I can still afford to eat and get back to making music ASAP.

I greatly appreciate any advice anyone has to offer. Thank you!

HOW did you test the woofer? Did you disconnect it first? What was the resistance you measured?

You can connect the non working woofer into the working cabinet to rule out if the amp / crossover is broken.
