Question about Lightning Audio FF150.2 Car Audio Amplifier

Open Question

Fried outputs perhaps?

I've been using this amp to power my front components for a few months now. Anyways, yesterday I was playing music fairly loud and it worked fine the rest of the ride home after I turned down the music. I get in my car today and there's no sound. I tested all my power with a DMM and I get voltage into the amp, my RCA's are good (checked them too, and used another pair too). The music does play very very faintly but hardly audible. I'm thinking somehow my outputs got fried. Any way I can fix this? I know how to take apart the amp and solder and such, but where are the likely spots that could have died? Would it be some resistor or capacitor inside that I need to replace or what? I have another amp on the way but if I can fix this that would make be glad.

SOURCE: how do i fixed my over powed Lightning Audio amp,b150.2

I know this is an old post but for anybody viewing this for reference to the same problem and same amp, it would cost more to fix it than to get a new one. That depends on who or what shop does the repairing. I do amp repairs very cheap. I have been in business for a few years and get lots of business. I'd say half comes from this site. I am out to help all us audio gear heads. In this time and the way the economy is money is tight. So if anybody needs an amp repaired, send me a message. There is no place cheaper to repair amps of any kind. Hope to hear from anyone needing my services.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Push power protect

Most likely you shorted out the amp ic. This will need to be replaced before the unit can be used again.

Are you sure you getting enough power to push everything. I have seen when the voltage is too low coming in, the amps will shut down so they don't overheat. Once they've cooled off and the volume level is lowered they will kick in again. Low voltage and a heavy draw will create massive amounts of heat.

Chances are one of the power amps has shorted. Replacing the fuse probably fried additional components. Unless you are electronically adept this is NOT a DIY repair.

Expect that this is going to be an expensive repair as often quite a few transistors and other components fry when one goes in these power amps.

I assume this is an active sub. The amplifier has most likely failed. You have proved the signal source is not the problem, well almost if you can sucessfully connect the aiwa sub to another amp then we will know for sure. Usually amplifiers fail with an output device short circuit. The hum you here is the power supply direct on the speaker, I would not leave it on for long or speaker damage may ensue.

Extreme distortion/static in music.

you might have blown your speakers. Thats what it sounds like, if it got loud with a lot of low-end then it got all staticy and distorted, you fried teh speakers.

Kicker 750.1 Amp wont play music

it is probably the rca inputs on the amp may have fried. was your cd decked turned up loudly before the power went out? did any wires accidently touch each other? If had worked fine and then suddenly stopped, than either a wire came loose or the inputs fried. try using different cables and I also suggest disconnecting power for 24 hours and then reconnect. If the green light is on then it is getting power and the problem is in the rca cables or the inputs

Marantz SR18-no sound

I have worked exclusivly on marantz recievers, for the last seven years, the loud 'pop' you heard, and smoke, was 90% that one of the amplifier channels, on the amp block, has blown, and consiquently the unit stays in protect mode. It will power up, and decode audio, and even show an f.m. stereo on the tuner, but you won't get the 'happy click' of the protection relays, until the channel is repaired. also replace the 5fd memory capacitor on the front micro board behind the front panel. If you have someone repair the channel, make sure that the tech resolders all of the connections on the molex connectors on the amp block. there are 10 of them, five male and five female, The bad solder on these are what caused the problem in the first place.
