Question about SPL Phantom DK2-1000 Car Audio Amplifier
There could be a variaty of things wrong
I have the same exact same amp.
The amp will get a little warm but it shouldn't get hot enough to where you cant stand it. The amp is only 2ohm stable in stereo mode and 4ohm stable in briged mode.
EX: If you connect a 2 ohm sub to the amp in briged mode.
1. It will cause the amp to get hot and possibly cause the amp to stop working.
2. It can cause the voice coil(s) to get hot and detach from the voice coil former.
Check the preamp output on the RCAs on the radio and what the amp is capable of handling. If the radio is more or less than the amp can handle it can cause the circit for the RCAs inputs tobe damaged over time. If the gain/level is turned up past 3/4 of the way it can shorten the life of the amp extremly. Also if the amp is starving for power it can damage the amp. Check the peak and rms on the amp and sub(s) if the amps peak or rms is higher than the amp it can damage both the amp and sub(s).Check to make sure all the connections on the amp are tight. Then check to be sure the connections to the input termainals on the box(s) and sub(s). It can cause the sub(s) to pop.
Hope it helps if not let me know

Have you checked to see if your subs voice coils have shorted. That could cause the amp to heat up, on rare occasions the protection lights don't work. Rare, but possible.
