    Turn the gain down... !!! SHouldn't need it up much past half way. That will cut down on the heat. Also check to make sure that your CVX isn't a 2ohm dual voice coil and it being wired down to 1 ohm. The PA880 is not stable there. Good luck !

    Yup. Gain is way too high so you're overdriving it pretty good. Its not a volume control, it simply matches the amps input with the head units output so when the head unit is at 50% volume, the amp is at 50% volume.
