Thakns for the quick advice guys. I did look on the net for a lab report on the 3808 but could not find one.
As for the overheating issue i solved that a while ago. I bought an AV cabinet from Standout Designs that has fans installed in the cabinets controlled by a temperature sensor. Things have been cooled down since then.
I should ahve my amp on Friday so I'll let you know how things turn out.
I am going to mention to my wife that when the light on the front of the new amp flashes red it means it is clipping and needs to be turned down!
