Question about Lightning Audio S2.300 2CH 340W Amplifier Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Connector While I was half way across the country my little brother thought it would be a good idea to hook my S2.300 up in his P.O.S., anyways he got pulled over no license so he unplugged my amp & Let the bass boost chord & connector plug get impounded with his car, so my question is where Can I get them replaced???

Green light, no sound.

there maybe have a broken connector inside the unit, when you move the cord around you get a little sound, if you know that the sub are good, than its either the connector or wire issue, is ther reset on the amp any where. you could try another speaker if you get the same results its the amp or connector device in the amp. if it not in warranty you you want to check it out than take it aprt look and see if you can fix it your self or trash it.

I have 2 10" Kicker Comp Subs

That amplifier is only rated at 150 watts at 4 ohms, or 300 watts at 2 ohms. Not a very strong amp to run 2 kicker comps. My guess is you have the subs wired wrong for your application. There are 2 types of subs, one is a dual 4 ohm, and one is a dual 2 ohm. Most people bridge these coils together and that cuts your ohms in half. For example. Lets say you have the 10cvr104 subs. Thats the dual 4 ohm sub. You wire the coils together in parallel, now its a 2 ohm sub. You have 2 of these subs running off of your amp, if they are hooked up in parallel, now you have a 1 ohm load, out of the amplifiers normal operation. Your amplifiers internals heat up really quick and there is a thermal overload, putting your amplifier into circuit protection mode. My suggestion for wiring your subs is as follows: for each speaker, wire the coils together like this- positive coil1 to negative coil 2 and negative coil 1 to positive coil 2. That is called running in series, and doubles your ohm load. Next, we need to wire the speakers together properly to hook up to your amplifier. For this, since the coils are hooked together, you only need to use one set of terminals from each sub. And take the positive from sub 1 and hook it to positive of amp. Take negative sub 1 and hook it to positive of sub 2. Take negative of sub 2 and hook it to negative of amp.

Amp is pulsating the subs uncontrolably, maybe its not hooked up right? its a kicker kx800.2 with a cap ooked up to 2 12 mtx audio subs....any ideas?

Hey make sure your ground is good. i had a problem like this befor and it was when i hooked the rca's in it would be pumping out bassing staticy noise and i had no acual ground hooked up took the screw and moved it to scratch the paint and Boom the real Bass came in. ....i thought it was grounded but it was not.

Hooked up the amp, lights up, fans kick on and run fine, speakers hooked up proper, no sound? hooked up speakers to another amp and they work fine. Fuses are all good too. Thoughts?

could be bad rca cables or no output from the radio rca outputs. the sub control may be turned off on the radio (ive seen that alot at my work). if all that is fine, the amplifier may be bad. the rca cables may be plugged into the "out" section of the amp. gotta look at all the small obvious things first. good luck.

4000.1 soundstorm amp

Hello GregV24CHOPP,

The Soundstorm products are in about the same category as Boss, Visonik, Pyle, and Lanzar to name a few. Somewhere between overrated and definitely overpriced for the quality you get.

Look into the Alpine MRP-M1000. RMS = 1kW into 2ohms (600 into 4ohms), YES 4 OHMS(!), real power. No, it WON'T do one ohm. But most of those claiming to are not CEA2006 compliant anyway and can claim any power at any load and advertise for whatever buyers they can attract for their bottom-of-the-barrel products.

The MRP-M1000 is currently on sale at Crutchfield for only $347. Awesome power, and very good sound quality, too. I'm currently running 2 4ohm MTX Thunders off of "little brother", the MRP-M500, and they really shake the pavement.

You have to spend good money to get good power, there is no way around that.

The only wiring configurations for 2 2ohm DVC subs result in 0.5ohm, 2ohms, and 8ohms impedance. Check the Rockford-Fosgate "wiring wizard" for the different diagrams.

Hope this helps.

What to do

Hello dodgeram1980,

If you are not getting sound from any of the 4 channels, I'd suspect that either the amp is not getting an input signal or the amp itself is faulty.

Here's the "no sound" troubleshooting step-by-step procedure from the JL manual:

1) Check the input signal using an AC voltmeter to measure the
voltage from the source unit while an appropriate test tone is
played through the source unit (disconnect the input cables
from the amplifier prior to this test). The frequency used should be in the range that is to be amplified by the amplifier (example; 50 Hz for a sub bass application or 1 kHz for a full range / high-pass application). A steady, sufficient voltage (between 200mV and 5.O-volts) should be present at the output of the signal cables.

2) Check the output of the amplifier. Using the procedure explained
in the previous check item (after plugging the input cables back into the amplifier) test for output at the speaker outputs of the amplifier. Unless you enjoy test tones at high levels, it is a good idea to remove the Speaker Connector Plugs from the amplifier while doing this. Turn the volume up approximately half way. 5V or more should be measured at the speaker outputs. This output level can vary greatly between amplifiers but it should not be in the millivolt range with the source unit at half volume. If you are reading
sufficient voltage, check your speaker connections as explained below.

3) Check to ensure that the speaker wires are making a good
connection with the metal inside the Speaker Connector Plugs. The speaker wire connectors are designed to accept up to 12 AWG wire. Make sure to strip the wire to allow for a sufficient connection with the metal inside each terminal.

Hope this helps.

No light at all


A couple of things you can try:
1. check for B+12 on the 1st and 2nd terminals of the Power Connector using a voltmeter;
2. temporarily put a jumper on the 1st & 2nd terminal of the Power Connector;
3. the usual, check for loose connection, fuses, wires, connectors.

if there is +12 on both terminal and amp is still dead, then it is internal;
if there is +12 on terminal 2 but none on 1, then it is the wiring from the head unit or the trigger of the head unit that is the issue;

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

American pro vs1403 lost one channel out of four

Have you moved all of the switches, controls and RCA jacks to make sure that the problem isn't a dirty contact?

Have you tried swapping the RCA signal cable from a working channel to confirm that it's not a signal problem?

Have you swapped a speaker from a working channel to the dead channel to confirm that it's not a speaker problem?

It's unusual that one channel goes dead and the rest work.

Sound issue

Is the fuse good? Is it hooked to 12 volt source? Are the speaker wires good? What does "the light" have to do with it?
