    a little help!

    wasup everybody! i recently installed this setup last weekend and what im noticing is spring is here and my amps get HOT even before i turn on the car. i know it may be my black interior or the tinted rear windshield thats causing heat, so what im asking is how would you keep these amps cool? adding fans, moving to a different part of the vehicle? any suggestions welcome. thanx in advance










    BTW the car is a 2000 Camaro

    yes, you could mount computer case cooling fan(s) to keep them cool. make sure you get the 12v ones, not the 5v fans. if you are just going to hook them to the remote turn-on from the hu, then it is a good idea to install a relay to drive all of your perephrials and trigger it by the hu..... they have all different kinds of cooling fans as far as design, colors, lighting, noise level, cfm, etc, so options are endless to meet your needs, and look good.

    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks
