does it have a heatsheild on the back?its a chunk of metal made to absorb all the heat away from the unit,if its a mad unit it may not have been fitted when u installed it,may be loose in the packaging??

If its not that then is it cramped in the area its fitted,are the heater pipes back there that are making its home hot?

Maybe try taking it out and running it for an hour just sat on the centre console infront of the gearknob?? Are u playing it at really loud volume,i know my headunit gets mega hot if i crank it up for any extended legnths of time,its never cut out on me tho

chaaaaav,only kiddin fella,good tip is to only turn it up about 2/3 power

I run my alpine unit at 22 max,it goes to 35

Any more volume needed use an amp as itll keep the signal clean

im not that worried about it gettin hot it's just that it only needs to be on for about an hour & it will be properly hot. it's not even on that high volume, goes up to 50 i have it on between 15 & 20.
