Hey there,
My Alpine Monoblock v12 Fan isn't working, could anyone tell me why this could be the case?,
and BOTH my amps are really really hot to the point where i can't touch them, any suggestions?
has anyone done a cooling setup?
thanks
- Ash

My advice would be to get them fixed before you damage them.....
That is much better than doing a bodge effort.

Make sure they're installed clear of anything. The heatsink needs space to keep cool. Go to jaycar and get replacement motors if they're stuffed.

If they don't have a replacement, they usually send the amps out to the manufacturer and get it fixed through them and then send it to you. 6 weeks sounds about right. I would've had to wait 4 weeks for my Audiobahn cause I took it to Audiobahn myself to haste things up. In the end they found something broken and I got a replacement within a week and it is still running (2 years now).

be patient :D

phong =P~
