Re: i have a lightnig audio amp its 760 watts not sure...
Did it stopped working ?
check your main fuse line under the hood ?
you should have one ! replace it ?
know if it works fine out what ohms is your amp best plays at!
and connect the correct woofer ohms ..
for that power at the most two 8 inch woofers or one 12 ich thats pushing it!

Your Sony Xplod amplifier turns on briefly (green light) then possibly senses a mismatch between the nominal output impedance of the amplifier and impedance of your Orion sub and goes into protect mode (red light) to prevent internal damage.
It could be the wiring. Sony amps will go into protection if the ohm is to low. They usually like to see 4 ohm or higher. Unplug your speaker wires and see if it still stays in protection. If it does could be an internal thing in the amp. If it isn't rewire subs in series not parallel.
the red light is for power in protect mode it should be orange and it will not emmit sound if you think you should have better sounding bass or more bass you can try to play with the gains on the amp or possibly if you have the negative or positive hooked up wrong from a speaker to the amp this will cause the bass to be lower and somewhat distorted double check your positive and negative wires from the speaker to the amp and make sure they are correct
Same thing happened to me so I returned it for repair turns out it was an internal 25amp fuse on the output. Got it back an it sounded very weak now it does not play at all. Nothing wrong with my setup as I have now got an 800watt amp that is running great.
Sounds like its going into protect mode-try disconnecting the speakers from the amp entirely and turn the system on if it stays lit up- then ya know its the speakers (one of them at least) thats making your amp shut itself down. If thats the case look into replacing the speaker thats causing the problem.Also make sure that you have sufficient wiring to your amp - at least 8 gauge if you can. check all terminals /power/ground make sure everythings connected tight and not grounding out anywhere
use a bigger ground wire for amp and protect mode will stop clipping and shutting amp off also make sure power wire and ground wires aren't the same size ground bigger .............if this doesn't help change settings on amp to lower power
easiest way to set amp is (turn the knobs on amp all down turn up your system to the level you listen to normally and then set the amp knobs for bass turn knob slow to set properly but i think the ground needs to be bigger and maybe moved to a new location
hope this helped
you are going to need an amp that can supply the right amount of rms power to make it sound good. these sony subs are rated for 380 watts rms. so in order to find an amp that will supply two, you must multiply that figure by two. so you will need an amp that can supply around 500 to 750 watts continuously (or rms). also you are going to want an amp that is either class d or class ab rated. these amps are built to push subwoofers exclusively and will give you the best efficiency and sound out of your subs. you will also want to get an amplifier is a monoblock amp, and not a stereo amplifier. make sure the amp can put out that rms rating at 2 ohms as two 4 ohm speakers equal 2 ohms wired in parallel. i have a kenwood kac9152d that puts out about 2000 watts max at 2 or 1 ohms (900 watts rms) that i used with my two sony xplod 10's for about 2 years. it was kick ***! now i dont know if you need that much power but they will handle it as long as you dont push them too hard for long periods of time, otherwise you might end up blowing them up! (depending on the box size that is, and the quality of it as well...)
i have years of car audio installation experience and can help with setting up and wiring any mobile entertainment system you can imagine. may i ask what kind of music you listen to and what kind of box do you have for these subwoofers?
