You're talking car audio. This is the home audio portion of the forum. Try the car guys. My guess would be you're loading the amp down with a too low impedance.

I thought I answered this yesterday?

Amp gets real hot?

1. Too loud, too long.
2. Low impedance speakers. HT gear, for example, generally doesnt' like 4 ohm speakers.
3. Long run of too small a size speaker wire. Like 10 feet or more of 18ga. coupled with above:
4. Amp needs some ventilation. Enclosed spaces will Cook electronics.
5. Multiple speakers in parallel can cause impedance to drop below even what 2 ohm car stuff can handle.

Can you talk to the installer? or was this a DIY?
