    It would help if we knew what kind of subwoofer. Brand / size / impedance. ;)

    I have a 4ch kenwood amp running my front speakers. It doesn't get hot at all. I've used it for a long time with no problems. Probably the same builld quality as pioneer or rockford.

    I agree with you on that one. But in most cases they will preform satifactory for the average user.
