Item(s) for Sale:

Lightning Audio Storm X1.2000.D, modded by Tubenut (before he disappeared)


Item(s) Description/Condition:

Very good condition. Some minor scratches on the case, but nothing major. Amp has been very solid for me, and I love it, but I have a smaller car now and am going a different route. I was told by Tubenut that the amp was clamped at 2400w at 1.5ohms, so should do a solid 3k at 1ohm. I ran it at 2ohms before rise, and was very happy with it, never really took it lower

EDIT: Here is a link with gut shots during Tommy's build up, as well as clamped numbers. 2348w@1.15, not 1.5, my mistake. He also claimed that it still had more in it, but that's the number he got.

Let me dig through some old pm's and find out exactly what was done, i cannot remember off the top of my head exactly what was done to it. I am out of town and only on my phone, so might be a day or two before I can go through everything, but I'll post up as soon as I find the info.

Decent amps... I had 1 a few years ago until I burned it up. I know for a fact it doesn't do close to 3k @ 1ohm tho. When I blew my amp I replaced it with a saz3k and there was a noticeable amount of more power with the SD amp with the same electrical.

Danny Britain had modded ones in his toy when he set world records. BUT they were modded for 16v+ if i remember right

Was yours modded as the OP says his is? Probably not and thats why you didn't get close to 3k....

Most of the time when someone says they modded an amp its removing the protection circuitry so they can drop the ohms to say 1 or .5 without it going into protect. Its a 1 ohm stable amp anyway. Mine didn't need modded. I'd like to see what it does clamped.

Actually I don't know him personally so u are correct. But unless he added mosfets and a different power supply I doubt it does 3k. Plain and simple.

"mane" automatically makes you a moron on this forum. fyi.

plain and gtfo. 12'er please no attempting to "teach" people on what does what... since you don't know what he did to mod it you now just "doubt" it does 3k whereas earlier you said what? "I know for a fact it doesn't do close to 3k @ 1ohm tho" **** son. You mad bro. Mad jelly. lulz had here.

Still digging through PM's, but upgraded mofsets were used, as well as adding 4 additional mofsets (from 12 to 16), custom mofset clamps, and the power supply has been upgraded. Will update if I find other mods that haven't been listed.

Then post some pics of these "upgraded parts" sounds like you took what trippy said and added your own twist to it. Post pics and clamped numbers.

Currently in Minneapolis, will post pics when I get back into town. I have been searching on CACO for the thread that Tommy had the gut pics in, but I cannot for the life of me find it. Don't have a clamp, so that isn't going to happen.

modded for 16v and modded power supply and rails

and if this is the same Tubenut from 03-05 when I was on here or the other board I don't rmeember him just modding the regulator he went all out from what I recall unless it was just a request for something

Link added to OP, it was on CSCO, that's why I couldn't find it. Clamped numbers in there, it was 2348@1.15, not 1.5, I remembered incorrectly.

Like I said far from 3k.... And that was with a starting @ .5 ohm voltage @ 15.4 dropping down to 14.8. What do u think it does at 13.8? Either way they are still nice amps sorry for coming off like a jerk good luck with the sale.

Its weird that all of you jump on bandwagons but don't ever listen to some one who actually ran that amp when they came out in 2003.... sounds like u need some more12'ers lmfao.

No worries Trippy, I didn't think your post was too bad. You were pretty much right on, needed to have an upgraded power supply and mofsets, both of which have been done. I wouldn't say it's not even close to 3k, as in the link Tommy said there was still some work to be done with the gains and estimated another 500w or so. But, oh well. It's a solid amp no matter what, I am sure it's next owner will be happy with it.


Oh, and thanks for all the bumps/views lol.

well, i happen to have one of the 1000's. the problem with the amps in stock form, is that the intersil fets have legs made from brittle metal, and break off over time with vibration, leaving the remaining fets to carry the load. so, as this happens, the power output goes down, until it fails. so, 90% sure that this is what happened when it failed, and you would notice more power even if it was the same amp, only new. the one i have, i plan on modding similarly, as it actually is a nice, stout amp, save for the fets used. so, this is actually coming from a guy who actually knows the specifics of the amp in question, above and beyond just owning one. just replacing the fets makes this a better/upgraded amp than stock. you should do some reading around before becoming a know-it-all in the classified section. curious to see pics of the handy-work. any idea what outputs were used?
got the page to load, and i can verify that the amp in that thread has definitely been upgraded exactly as described. should probably post current pics. if it still does 600rms @ 4ohms, then it would show that rail sag condition(strained, stock) has been made more stable, and that there is more to be had from the amp. 3k is feasible, imho, just a matter of what ohm load.
