Question about Car Amplifiers
Hey, hello everybody!
I have a Sony MEX-1GP car player with 4 speakers (3-way 60 W), and around 20 minutes with a MP3 playing, it get too hot (can't neither touch the heatsink) making the sound volume decrease 'til no sound. Then if I turn off the radio, wait some minutes and turn it back on, the volume came back. What should be the problem?
It's common for head units to run extremely hot when driving all 4 channels from the internal amplifier. If you can get some air flowing over the heatsink, it will help greatly. The smallest fan you can find will move enough air to reduce the temperature significantly (assuming it's placed where it can be effective).
A better option would be to use an external amplifier.
