Hi gordog239,
This symptoms indicated that your sound output IC was already shorted. It heats up while on operation but the heat depends upon the volume and the load speakers(normal operation). If the unit gone to excessive heat even the volume is set to min, this was a clear indication that the fault came from the output IC (mounted in the heat sink. You may confirm it by opening the cover of the unit and touch the heat sink.
Once confirmed that the heat sink gone to excessive heat, replace the output IC and all electrolytic capacitor around this section, this will solve the issue.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya

Battery geeting to hot

you have something connected incorrectly - whatever has wires which you recently changed must be wired incorrectly...
If this is not the case, check the voltage regulator,. your alternator may not be shutting the charge to the battery off - the regulator would probably be inside the alternator or possibly on the firewall.

Amp shuts off when the bass hits i have the big hot and ground wire

Hello anthonydirks,

I'd suspect an impedance matching problem, specifically too low of an impedance for the amp to handle.

Amplifier getting switched off automatically after 30 secs

Possible solution...

Check the wiring with your speakers. Make sure no bare wires are cross touching or touching the chassie. This could cause the the protection circuits to kick in. It could also be the speakers themselfs. I had a woofer in my B&W that caused my amp to shut off. I think it had to do with the voice coil.

Does it shut off without anything connected? I would disconnect all wires and connections and then turn it on. if it still shuts off then at least we know it's the amp. It could be that it is dirty on the inside. Dust can make connections between circuits on the boards. This could lead to a more serious problem that may, or may not be fixable. Beyond this, I'm not sure unless you start checking all the components on the board.
I would not suggest that unless you have done it before and know what you are doing.

Denon AVR-4802R automatically shuts off in multi-zone mode

i had the volume of the multi-zone tuned too high and was attenuating it in an external control box. Once i took the multi-zone volume down to -25db, the problem went way. My main zone was operating around -35db so did not have the problem.
