my input on this: fosgate amps are notorious for overheating, when i first got my 800.2 it shut off on me due to high heat level. couple days later i went out and bought a lightning audio cooling fan and hooked it up. it hasnt shut off on me since, i dont know how well it actually works, but so far so good, have had it for about 2-3 weeks now.
question for zane now. sometimes when i stick my key in the ignition and start my car right away, i get very very very little sound. i think the amp in my head unit doesnt start or something, i wouldnt quite know, but i'm sure you would. what i usually have to do now is turn my car on, wait for the fan to run, then start it. the guy at the store said it could be the remote turn on in my head unit, but i dont wanna go spend however much they wanna charge me to take a look at it. could it be the way i wired my fan and my second amp? what i did was hook the remote of the fan up to my alpine amp, and my alpine amp remote to the fosgate remote. each amp has 2 remote wires going to it, is this going to create any problems? this was the only way i could think of wiring it, so that's what i did.
