We study $C^*$-algebras generated by Toeplitz operators acting on the standard weighted Bergman space $\mathcal{A}_{\lambda}^2(\mathbb{B}^n)$ over the unit ball $\mathbb{B}^n$ in $\mathbb{C}^n$. The symbols $f_{ac}$ of generating operators are assumed to be of a certain product type, see (\ref{Introduction_form_of_the_symbol}). By choosing $a$ and $c$ in different function algebras $\mathcal{S}_a$ and $\mathcal{S}_c$ over lower dimensional unit balls $\mathbb{B}^{\ell}$ and $\mathbb{B}^{n-\ell}$, respectively, and by assuming the invariance of $a\in \mathcal{S}_a$ under some torus action we obtain $C^*$-algebras $\boldsymbol{\mathcal{T}}_{\lambda}(\mathcal{S}_a, \mathcal{S}_c)$ whose structural properties can be described. In the case of $k$-quasi-radial functions $\mathcal{S}_a$ and bounded uniformly continuous or vanishing oscillation symbols $\mathcal{S}_c$ we describe the structure of elements from the algebra $\boldsymbol{\mathcal{T}}_{\lambda}(\mathcal{S}_a, \mathcal{S}_c)$, derive a list of irreducible representations of $\boldsymbol{\mathcal{T}}_{\lambda}(\mathcal{S}_a, \mathcal{S}_c)$, and prove completeness of this list in some cases. Some of these representations originate from a ``quantization effect'', induced by the representation of $\mathcal{A}_{\lambda}^2(\mathbb{B}^n)$ as the direct sum of Bergman spaces over a lower dimensional unit ball with growing weight parameter. As an application we derive the essential spectrum and index formulas for matrix-valued operators.
