    Re: amp getting hot

    I would check each coil on your sub with a DMM.I had a sub go bad on me last week,after banging for 8yrs,throwing my configuration into a .5 ohm,rather than the 2 ohms needed/running.I pulled my subs out ,and checked all of them on that amp,and found one to be bad.Could be your issue as well?Bad coil/coils

    Ive used computer fans on relay and it worked great. You can generally pick them up cheap on ebay.

    Re: amp getting hot

    check the grounds too... recheck all the wires make sure everything is solid... also check the coils and the terminals on the subs.. I had 2 leads break lastweek on me and was making my amp run warmer than normal
