Class B and class AB amplifiers will run at high temperatures when they are driven hard or when they are driving too low of an ohm load. If you have the correct ohm load and the amp only runs hot when driving it hard, it's probably OK.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

This afternoon, the amp appears to have just stopped working. The LED is not lit. I've checked the fuses and they are not blown.


You say the fuses are OK. Is there power at the amplifier though or not. If there is no power and the fuses look fine then pay attention to the fuse block near the battery. Make sure that there is good contact some times the need to slightly tighten the diameter of the fuse block is required, (where the fuse goes in) Sometimes the fuse block will expand from the heat due to a combination of the engine and also the amplifiers playing at high volumes heating up the cable and even the weather temperature in hot climates. So even if the fuse may look fine and most likely is fine it is actually the fuse block that is the guilty party. Bad quality fuse blocks tend to do this. Thats why it is important to always buy good quality materials for your installation. Without knowing the circumstances in which your amplifier stopped working, and with the info that you've provided: Try this out and i hope it is just that and not a damaged amplifier Good luck. dreamsystems

Is that on all the time or are you saying the light is on? If that light is always on that just means it's protecting your amp. If it's off and not playing bass then your in trouble

Green light on but no sound from subwoofers or speakers


HI...IT COULD BE A BAD THERMAL FUSE NEAR THE OUTPUTS ....OR A COMPONENT HEATING UP TRIPPING THE THERMAL FUSE TO SHUT DOWN... OPEN IT UP SEE IF THE OUTPUTS ARE GETTING REALLY HOT.. IF IT IS NOT GETTING REALLY HOT... USE A JUMPER WIRE TO JUMP OUT THE THERMAL FUSE IF IT COMES RIGHT BACK ON.. GET A NEW THERMAL FUSE DON'T KEEP THE JUMPER ON (USE FOR TEST ONLY) GOOD LUCK

Sony MEX-1GP getting warm


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.

Amp heating up


Here is the link for the user manual for your amp if you need it; http://akamaipix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/113/113KAC9102.PDF a poor ground connection can lower the voltage available to the amplifier by essentially adding a resistor in series with the amp. low voltages can often cause overheating in electronic components, but not always and unusual in amplifiers. The poor ground connection itself would get hot, even to the point of fire, and a certain amount of heat is conducted along the wire into the amp terminal, unlikely to be enough to make the amp run hot without you noticing smoldering cable insulation. What exactly do you mean by "not in a good spot"? - a ground connection is only in a bad spot if it is likely to get damaged, or not making a good connection all the way to the battery. - please explain more. A poor ground could lead to low voltage, which could lead to component damage, which could cause the components to run warmer than normal and is probably not reversible, but usually relatively easily repaired. Page 2 of the manual describes the protection function, which should activate if your amp is getting too hot - if it hasnt activated then most likely the temperature you are experiencing is normal. The protection will also cut in if the ground is bad. Hope this helps :)
