If you're running a single sub off that, and you're bridging the amp, most amps require specific terminals to be used. I don't see any bridging marks, but they could be hidden under the block.

Need more data. Make, model of amp?

I'd dump it myself. Lanzar is not a very reputable brand. It could probably be fixed, by a professional, but for what you'd be charged, you'd be better off getting a new amp.

You could still use it to power a single subwoofer, bridging the "Left +" and "Right -" terminals.

Edit: After looking around the internet a bit, I stand corrected on Lanzar. Public opinion is they're decent, if overrated in wattage. The second part of my first paragraph stands, though.

Yep, you can bridge that puppy, 1000w at 4 Ohms.
Here's the owners manual
http://www.qualitycaraudio.com/store...ls/VCT2010.pdf
Page 17 shows the VCT2010 bridge mono wiring diagram.
Set the cross over switch to LPF.

Good to go. Just hook it up to a 4ohm Sub.

I don't think it'll give 1000 watts at any ohms. It's only got two 20a fuses. My 300w RMS Soundstream amp has two 40a fuses. At best he'd only get around 550 watts out of it.
