Have had a hard time making the amp even get warm, but I pushed pretty hard on Into the Storm and the last 20 mins is pretty action packed with regards to active audio. Left and right channels got warm, but the middle channel for the center was still pretty cool. I'd expect the two front towers to be more power intensive.

Impressed so far with the amp sound and performance, especially when you consider what they sell for.

^Yah the bang for the buck is huge. I'm a couple years in on my XPA and it has been a champ.

Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.

I also have a hard time making my XPA5 more than barely warm. At -10 on the volume it starts to get barely warm. At -15 it laughs at my efforts!
