    I started to rechedule the cables of my system and I noticed that my Monitor Audio RXW-12 subwoofer is producing considerable amount of heat at the back above the power supply. I never noticed that over the years. The subwoofer usually remains connected to electricity in stand by mode and is triggered by the Denon 4310 AV receiver.

    Is it normal that the subwoofer is producing quite a heat at the back even in the stand by position? I searched on internet and found no answer. Can any of happy owners of MA subwoofer try theirs and let me know?

    What's a Summer Break :)

    Surely someone is left at the 'factory' to offer Support!

    Give your dealer a shout and see if they have a different support line.

    You won't happen to have the MA sub so you could try the heat at the back? It would be faster before Summer is over :)

    Velodyne and Anthony Gallo I can help out with - I don't have an MA Sub to hand.

    I find if something 'feels' too hot it generally is too hot and I would power it Off until you can have it looked at/compare it with the same model.

    Digital Amps don't usually run overly hot.
