That's common, my old Alpine (I think it was that model too) used to heat up discs too, but not once did it go into protection.

My Blau HU get's REALLY hot, but it's just from the light in the faceplate. Try turning down the brightness and see if that makes a differance.

all head units tend to have the heat crazy factor, check online or google to find out how to mod your Head unit to adda fan on the back. I did it and it's a few degrees cooler. But beware that if you do this mod, your warranty will be voided.

i just added a four channel amp and my HU does get warm but not as much as it used to, but i have had my HU get extremely hot and it has a protection on it and it never went into protection.
