Orion xtr series class AB amplifiers generally get hotter than usual. I've noticed this throughout the line. Even at a moderate volume they are hot to the touch, however, never had issues with it tripping off due to thermal protection.

Try putting a few fans to help with the cooling abit.

Sounds like the heatsink is doing it's job. As suggested above, put a fan or two on it if you have concerns.

if one amp is driving more power than the other, this happens.
if one amp is loaded down more, this happens (eg - 8phm load vs 4 ohm vs 2ohm).
If a mistake was made and the amp loaded too low, this can happen.
If the amp is a class a/b and the other cooler amp is a class D, this is expected.

Depends on your budget...both are excellent...one amp system? Or 6amp high current business?

i really love JL but Orion makes really great amps in the XTR and HCCA line up....good JL stuff start from the RD line go up...if you need big power go Orion...if just a simple system where a single 5 channel will suffice then go JL XD1000/5v2 :twisted:
