Helped my friend put a new CD head unit in his boat. Turned it on and noticed that the unit get pretty hot, like too hot to touch. Granted, the thing has a heat sink on one side, and that is the area getting hot, probably the heat from the built in amp. <BR> <BR>Anyone have any experiences with this or know if this is normal?? Thanks in advance.

i think most head units with built in amps get pretty warm, if your that worried add a small fan to the back of the head unit OR dont run any speakers off the head unit, run them all off seperate amps <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
