There is a lot of heat generated and not a lot of ventilation so the answer to your question is yes, they all get hot. Now the question is what is too hot? Certainly we don't want it so hot as to roast marshmallows on or to melt anything or even WITHOUT TOUCHING IT too hot to touch. If it truly gets that hot there may be some trouble with the speaker or power wiring that is making it work too hard.

The back and top of the unit is getting very hot fast...like hot to the touch. I had a kenwood in there before so I just unplugged it from back and plugged into new unit. its in a jeep not boat


Hi, your issue can be caused by many thing. My first question is why did you change the first radio. Just because its the same brand, doesnt mean the plug or wiring is the same as the new unit.(unless its an exact replacement.) My first thing i would chk is the wires on your speakers. Most jJapanese eequipment for cars and such is 4ohm. If you wired two 4ohm spkrs in pparallel your load drops to 2ohms, which will make the system work harder and get very hot. I would try unhooking them and rreconnecting them one by oon. Hope that helps.

Location of cd changer in 1998 dodge dakota slt extended cab


If it still has the factory radio in it, then the CD changer will be part of the radio, and the CD's go into the slot located in the face of the unit. The factor Dodge / Chrysler radios where double DIN, meaning that they are about 4"(100mm) tall, vs a single DIN that is closer to 2" (50mm). Most aftermarket radios are single DIN and use a filler plate to cover the extra room. If it is an aftermarket radio, and has a CD changer, then it is more than likely located under a seat, in the glove box, or in the center console of a vehicle.

My jvc kw-avx740 keeps shutting off with the slightest shock


check the connector blok on the back of your radio. sometimes on the double din radio's this connector doesnt fit snug into the back of your radio. check the clip portion and ensure that when you stick the blok in it clips in place.

I want to replace my Pontiac G6 radio. But I want to keep my "info center" display intact. Is that possible?


There is a kit from Metra called the Metra 99-3303 kit that takes the double din area of the stock stereo and converts it into an info center/single din. Cost is about $123 on ebay.
