I'm trying to fit 2nd hand stereo system (no instructions) into my 1995 Gli Ghia. It works but after 10min it gets too hot to touch.
Check your wiring, you may have one side of the speakers shorting to ground or to another channel, the system will work and you may not notice the difference in level but the amp will not like driving a short. Otherwise it is likely to be a faulty output transistor / MOSFET.
