I recently purchased a solid state combo amp from an online retailer and had a change of mind. The amp has been sitting in my car, unopened in its box for the last week in temperatures of 95+degrees. I changed my mind again and decided to keep it.

My question is should I return the amp in case it suffered any heat damage?

Keep in mind the inside of the car reached temps of about 115 degrees fahrenheit. With the amp packaged, is this hot enough to damage it?

No, it wouldn't get hot enough at that temperature, especially if it was still boxed and packaged.

I don't think so. It's one thing if its a guitar, because then all sorts of **** happens. An amp, however, should be fine. The only thing that I can think of that could be hurt would be (if its a modelling amp like a Vypyr) the digital modelling board on it. I think they have certain heat restrictions.

Yep, it's a v-ampire! OH NOES!

No, even the chips inside a modelling could withstand 40 degrees Celcius. There shouldn't be a problem. The only thing I would worry about with an amp would be humidity, not heat.

Oh ok. I didn't know if they were similar to computers which just start melting without a fan.

Good idea, I think I will let it cool inside for a day before firing it up.

An hour should be quite enough TBH.
