Agreed... The JBLs run much cooler than my Mackie MR5s. I'm guessing that has to do with the type of amps used. (Class D in the JBLs and Class A/B in the Mackies.) my understanding is the Class A/B...

Based on your issues, my gut response would have been plug the bass ports in the back of the speakers, but then I actually looked up the SM 350s and see they are not ported, but have the passive...
