    yeah turn those gains down, it doesnt have to be all the way up (most of the time not even half way) to make full power, your making the amp work too hard with no benefit.



    • DEH-P730
    • CSc60S front
    • CXe570 rear
    • two TS-W2000SPL's RIP
    • JBL p80.4 ok now bridged to 2ch for the components, no more amped rear fill
    • JBL bp1200.1 oh this is the shiznit
    • HO alt

    what ohm load are you running it at, thats probably your problem..some amps just can't help to run hot at 1or2 ohm bridged. Especially the smaller ones
