operating temps for car amps

Post by badfireguy » Mon Aug 04, 2008 12:55 am

Can anyone tell me what the thermal peramatures for Carver car amps (4120 and 4060) should be? I have recently had a stealth installation done and have noticed a pretty big difference in the operating temperatures of my amps. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I don't know about temp. tolerances for your amp,I was wondering if you have thought about adding any vents/ducts/fans to increase cooling? (if space permits that is)Good luck! gdb

I have to agree with gdb; if you're having heat issues with a stealth installation, you need ducting/fans or you'r gonna have reliability/longevity issues.
