Our take on the Lightning Audio Bass Package

by Dominic Devito
Lightning Audio

Thinking about adding bass to your vehicle, but not sure where to start? Lightning Audio simplifies the process for you. This convenient bass package combines an amplifier and amp wiring kit with a slim profile, enclosed subwoofer—all you add is speaker wire.

The package features Lightning Audio's 2-channel B3.150.2 amplifier, which fires off 150 watts RMS at 4 ohms in bridged mode. This amp offers convenient connections for wiring your system, plus a Juice Boost bass switch to ramp up bass response.

10" subwoofer
The sealed sub enclosure provides strong low end with its formidable 10" woofer. The subwoofer's polypropylene cone joins with the chrome-plated basket and a rubber surround for strong performance, while the 40-ounce magnet anchors the motor structure for precise, reliable movement.

Sealed truck-style enclosure
The truck-style box provides a solid home for your sub with medium-density fiberboard construction and hardy gray carpet covering, while a stylish grille enhances the enclosure's look. This enclosure offers a slender profile (only 7-1/8" deep), so it'll fit into tight spots in pickups and smaller vehicles.

10-gauge wiring kit
A 10-gauge amplifier power and signal wiring kit from Lightning Audio completes the combo. The oxygen-free twisted pair copper wire cables keep noise from your car's electrical system to a minimum while maintaining clean signal transfer.

Overview: The Lightning Audio BCKT110.150 Subwoofer/Amplifier Package includes a 150 watt 2-channel amplifier, a 10" 4ohm subwoofer mounted in a optimized enclosure with grille and a 10-AWG amplifier wiring kit.

Enclosure: The slim-profile subwoofer enclosure is designed to fit behind a truck seat, in the cargo area of an SUV or inside the trunk of a car. The enclosure is made of MDF which resists flexing and is sealed for tight, accurate bass. The truck-style box is cover with durable gray carpeting and features a black plastic grille to protect the mounted 10" woofer. The enclosure features a set of spring post terminals on the back of the box that will accept up to 10-AWG speaker wire. The subwoofer enclosure is wired for a 4-ohm load at its speaker terminals.

10" Subwoofer: Mounted to the front of the enclosure is a 10-inch, 4-ohm woofer with a 2" voice coil and 40oz magnet. The woofer features a polypropylene cone which is light-weight, yet very durable attached to a chrome plated basket. For added durability and bass response the woofer utilizes a rubber surround. The 10" subwoofer is rated at 150 watts RMS and 750 watts Peak.

2-Channel Amplifier: The included B3.150.2 Lightning Audio 2-channel amplifier is CEA-2006 compliant and rated at 50 watts RMS x 2-channel in 4-ohms and 75 watts RMS x 2-channel in 2-ohm. The amplifier can be bridged to output 150 watts x 1 channel at 4-ohms. The B3.150.2 amplifier is equipped with the following controls and connections.

  •  Gain Control: The input gain control is preset to match the output of most source units. It can be adjusted to match output levels from a variety of source units.
  • Crossover Filter Switch: The amp features a Crossover Filter Switch which can be set to High-Pass for midranges and tweeters, Low-Pass for subwoofers or Full-Range for all frequencies to pass through. When using the supplied subwoofer you will want to set the Crossover Filter Switch to Low-Pass.
  • Adjustable Crossover Frequency Control: If you select the Low-Pass or High-Pass filter mode, you can adjust the crossover frequency between 40 and 400 Hz.
  • Juice Boost Switch: The amplifier's Juice Boost Switch applies 6dB of 50Hz bass boost to the audio system.
  • RCA Inputs: The amplifier features one set of gold-plated RCA inputs to connect the amplifier to your aftermarket headunit's preamp outputs.
  • High Level Inputs: The amplifier's high-level inputs use a  detachable connector harness terminated with 20 AWG leads. This input can be used if your source unit has on speaker line outputs and not RCA outputs, such as a factory radio.
  • Speaker Connections: The amp features four gold-plated screw-terminals that will accommodate up to 8-AWG speaker wire.
  • Power Connections: The amp's Power and Ground gold-plated screw-terminals will accept up to 4-AWG wire while its remote turn-on lead gold-plated screw terminal will accept up to 8-AWG wire.
  • LEDs: The amplifier features a green Power LED and a red Protect LED.

Lightning Audio Bass Package

Written By Jason, Massachusetts on Monday, July 07, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This bass package is excellent. I added this to my 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid; this is a great compliment to the factory speakers in conjunction to my Alpine 9857. I must say I was very surprised how clear the bass is, plenty of power for any vehicle. Unless you want to have the vehicle with the loudest, most unbalanced, and distorted glass shattering bass, then this is a great deal. My other vehicle has a custom $1400 speaker system with a kicker L5, and this simple but yet cheap set-up still sounds good in comparison.

I also bought the streetwire 14 gauge speaker cable, this stuff in the install kit is ok, but when not spend and extra $7 to ensure a quality signal.

Great deal!!

Written By Jeff, Caribou, ME on Wednesday, July 02, 2008
 
This setup works
great in my 03 F150.
I kept my factory
head unit and used
the speaker-level
inputs. Had no
problems with the
install, and the
tech support helped
me determine which
wire I had to splice
into behind the head
unit. After it was
all set up, it
sounds great. I
could use a little
more bass, but hey,
who couldn't? For
the price, it's a
great deal!
Recommended to
anyone looking to
add some bass into
their factory
system!

Cheap but good

Written By HamTwo, Norfolk, Virginia on Thursday, June 26, 2008
 
Gives me all the bass I need in the trunk of my old Ford Contour sedan without taking up much trunk space. My little 4 cylinder engine with stock alternator easily handles the load. Comes with complete installation kit. Does not have a remote control. By maxing out the controls on the unit I can get all the control I want using the equalizer and subwoofer fader on the CD/radio. Before you get a bigger unit be sure you want to give up the trunk space and can spare the extra power from your electrical system.

cheap bass

Written By O_loung1, houston, texas on Tuesday, June 24, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
this system is good
for small vehicles
that is missing
bass. dont expect
low end freq with
this system, its an
add-on for stock
systems. i added
this to an 08 rabbit
with an old 2 line
output converter to
the stock hu. the
low profile sub
enclosure is small
enough that it
doesnt take up too
much space.
hopefully i will get
1-2 few years out of
this setup.

I got this setup in my mazda mx-3 and it sounds great. It picks up different tones very well and is pretty loud. This is a very good deal if you want a good quality sub for a low price.

Just what I was looking for!

Written By Mike, Germany on Wednesday, May 21, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
First, if you are looking for the best bass in the neighborhood, Stay away from this. However, if your are looking to have great bass inside your car as I was, this is a great product. Very clear bass. I added this to my kenwood receiver along with 4'' infinity door speakers and 6x9 sony speakers in the rear. I have a 2004 pontiac grand am. This is no competion system but it sounds great. Just what I wanted. Thanks Crutchfield team for helping me set up something that sounds great and is low budget!!!

Great for a Pick-up

Written By Pat, Levittown, NY on Tuesday, May 06, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just put this sub
package in my 95
F150. Very easy to
install, took me
like 30 minutes, and
the sound is great.
I have it connected
to my Kenwood system
and the bass is just
right. It replaced
my old bazooka tube,
and I think it
actually provides
better overall bass
and sound. Great
product, and a great
buy!

Great product

Written By Turbo, Raleigh, NC on Friday, April 11, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I wanted to improve the sound of the stock system in my 2006 Toyota TUNDRA Access Cab, and I added a pair of tweeters to the back speakers, which helped the sound clarity a lot. Now I needed some serious bass and I picked the Lightning system. All I can say is WOW ~!! Very clear and powerful bass with amazing THUMP and easy to install and adjust. The variable Cross Over, Filter and Boost are necessary and provide easy tuning of whatever music you like. From classical to hard rock that subwoofer kicks butt !

I'll second that

Written By aucyrano, Cullman, AL on Monday, April 07, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
If you want to add a little bass to your factory stereo on a budget this system will work for you. Turn the low pass on, boost on and turn the gain up about half way with the amp bridged of course, and you are ready to go.

It won't shake your rear view mirror off of your car, but it will create some good bass to fill in the void found in most factory car stereos.

I paired mine with a CD player with auxillary input on the front and 4 6x9's and had a great sounding system for under 400 bucks.

Best Bang For Your Buck!

Written By Andy, Jefferson, IA on Sunday, March 16, 2008
 
This product is great. I put it in my toyota camry and I was very pleased how well in sounded. Your not going have the loudest subs in town but it fills the lows very nicely. It took me and a friend two hours to get it in. He was very impressed. Don't ignore it just becuase it's not one of the big name brands. If you don't want to spend a lot of money and get some good clean bass, but not shake your car apart this product is for you. Thanks Crutchfield for your service and fast free shipping!
