are you using the preamp outs or the internal amp? what speakers are being powered? what car?

LOL.... :laugh:

Sounds funny :) is it overheating, like getting hot and smoke coming out or gets hot and stops working? or is it just getting hot, like you're CDs are Hot? is it a new install? what speakers? how are they wired? are you running the speakers off the HU? etc....

Perhaps some more details would help a little...

well if your playing your speakers loud in the middle of the hot summer and your car is parked outside, im not really surprised. I don't use the internal amp on my HU but it still gets very warm to the touch... but i've never had it shut off on my because of overheating.

How long do you play it before it overheats?
