On lucent amps you sometimes have to bridge two terminals together to make it work. i need to know what two need to be bridged.
I'm not sure if Lucent has a special bridging procedure, but on most if
not all other amps, when you bridge you DON'T connect two terminals
together. What you do is instead of using the plus and minus
terminals on one channel to one speaker and the other +/- terminals to
the other speaker, you will instead use the plus (+) terminal from one
channel and the minus (-) terminal from the other channel to drive one
speaker and the remaining + and - terminals remain unconnected. Be sure
you use the + and - terminals that are marked for bridging.
Please note, that when you bridge that your speaker load DOUBLES to
EACH channel. In other words, what your amp saw as a 4 ohm
speaker going to one channel alone, it now sees as a 2 ohm speaker on
each channel when bridged. Be sure you know what you are doing
before you bridge and fry your amp. In my experience, if after
bridging your amp works fine for about a month and then fries then you
bridged wrong and ended up with the wrong speaker load on each of the
bridged channels. Be careful. Amps cost a lot to
repair. Good luck.
