Well, as the title says, my CD player gets very hot. I have a Peugeot 505 and I have fitted an expensive Alpine stereo, and first noticed that CDs are quite hot when I remove them. As I can slip out the whole unit easily, I discovered it is really quite hot. Perhaps somewhere between "quite" and "very"
It is only connected to the original speakers so far (perhaps the impedance is different from what that stereo should have ??) and I don't pump up the volume.
The hole in the console in which it fits is not huge, so any heat generated stays in there. I don't want to ruin a good unit......perhaps I should fit a cooling fan ?? I have a reasonably quiet 12 volt one from a computer, but I've never heard of anyone doing this. Any thoughts on this, folks ?
I cooled my 8 amp battery charger the same way. It used to get VERY hot.
