Stethoscope S2 heart splitting

How to differentiate wide splitting and fixed splitting? Because both of them are not associated with breath and all result from delayed closure of pulmonary valve. Is my understanding correct? Please give me some information, and if i'm wrong with some of the concepts here please let me know. Thanks a lot!
