SOURCE: Pioneer car stereo output Ic's
In most cases the problem is the electronic volume IC, ref # IC151 and part number PLM003AM (in the DEH-1600). It is a different part number and ref # in other models.
It is not always this part that causes the failure, sometimes it can be the muting transistor, a voltage regulator or even the micro on more rare occasions. It will require some troubleshooting to figure out exactly what part it needs. You will need to have an O-scope to trace down the audio signal and follow it from one pin to another. You also need a multimeter to check a few voltages in the radio. All of this must be done on a test bench with the radio powered on with a power supply. If you do not have these tools, you will not be able to figure it out for certain, you would only be taking a stab in the dark. That can get rather frustrating and even expensive buying parts that do not fix the problem.
The electronic volume IC is a flat pack surface mounted component and requires the very best soldering skills to be able to replace. It is very easy to do damage to the circuit board that can not be repaired if it is not done perfectly. If you have not replaced these type of components before, you should not even attempt this repair.
If you would like the service manual I can sell you the PDF format of it for $10. I also have the service manuals for most Pioneer products as well as Kenwoods, JVC, Panasonic, Denon, Marantz, Clarion, and more. Let me know if you would like to get it. The service manual is very helpful in repairing electronics. It contains the schematics and parts list which is vital to make sure you get the right parts and to be able to trace down any signals and to know what parts are doing wha, and to figuring out if the voltages are correct.
I hope this helps,

you can find all kinds of adapters for RCA or phone jack to anytype of connectors at best buy or circuit city, if not Radioshak probably have them. just ask for a cable adapter to the type of connector transformation you need for the speakers.

Remove the outputs completely and start up the unit. Measure each of the pads to ground with a DC voltmeter and report the values here. I suspect that you have either an open driver transistors. Using the voltage readings, I should be able to guide you further.

SOURCE: Stereo cuts out at half volume.
You don't exactly define what "cuts out" means.... silence, protection or power off?
What makes you think it's thermal in nature?
Have you considered the speaker load impedance may be too low for the amp?

Testimonial: "Impedance was the problem I hooked up the speakers parallel and it fixed the problem."
