This is a question from,p198835/Alpine-CDA-7892-CD-Playe r.aspx
That I can not find a solution for:

I have installed the 7892 in an older BMW with good speakers for all 4 channels. All lights are fine,CD plays, radio plays both with low power and high distortion on all 4 channels, The top of the unit around the output IC area is VERY hot and remains so even with the speakers disconnected. What can the problem be?

Certainly, the output IC might need to be replaced, also check to see if there is a factory amp somewhere in the car.

Additionally, double-checking the wiring is a must.

How long does it take for the unit to heat up?
