I have a Kenwood Excelon KAC-X301T with the powerslide and my amp is getting hot after about 30 minutes driving...It seems as if the cooling fan isnt working...I mean its on, but the amp is just waaay too hot...And the amp goes in and out after awhile...Just trying to figure out whats going on...plz help
Your ohm load is too low causing the amp to work harder which is causing the overheating problem , and that is causing your amp to go into thermal protection mode which is causeing ti to go in and out. what ohm load are you running it at?

Recheck your wiring if this is a new problem. Or if you know someone with a multimeter put it on ohms and check the resistance on the subs. Or if you have multiple subs unhook them all and hook them back up one by one and run it in between to see if the amp runs cooler. Remember you can not go to low on ohms. speakers hooked in parallel brings the ohms down fast. Four ohms and four ohms in parallel equals 2 ohms and so on. check the manual or on the amp somewhere to see how low of ohms you go.
