so i left my flextone on for about an hour and when i came back and reached for the knobs, there was heat coming out of the little vents (which i thought was just put there for asthetic purposes) now, as far as my knowledge goes, SS amps dont produce heat.....theres no tubes to produce heat......anyone know whats going wrong here?

modern flat screen TVs don't have tubes either and they get hot


(I thought this was a clever NAD title)


lol ya im clever like that, so im just guessing its like.....the circuits and stuff heating? or since it emulates tube amps, does it emulate tube heat (joking btw)

holy crap I'm glad you added in the joking part, i was seriously concerned there for a second. but yeah, electrical things can get hot and vents are usually there for a reason.

hahah. yea well basically i had one of those "THIS TONE IS PERFECT" moments and didnt want to turn off my amp lol

PCs are solid state and they heat up.

It's natural for electronics to heat up. The current encounters some resistance as it travels through the circuit and there is a power loss due to this resistance which is in the form of heat. If it is excessive, then you should worry, but some heat is natural. Just looks at PCs... lol.

a lot of things produce heat. like computers. which is basically what a line 6 amp is haha

Transistors produce heat. They are current amplifiers. Where there's current, there's heat.

My ss combo has a big ass heat sink above the vent on the back and for good reason too. That thing will put off a lot of heat when cranked.

I over-loaded an SS amp once by reamping a tube amp into it and it caught on fire

I don't think that's correct. I think it's wherever there is resistance there is heat when you pass current through it. A counter example to your statement would be a superconductor.

fires produce heat
bugeras produce fires
amp must be bugera

My solid state amp gets warm on the back radiator during long practice sessions. Only warm though.

Doest it get so hot you can cook eggs on it?
If no, you don't need to worry.
If yes, cook some goddamn eggs.

The SS power amp I'm currently repairing (a 3RU 250+250W Perreaux 2150B) generates so much heat that the entire sides of its cabinet are made entirely from nothing but a massive great heatsink that the output MOSFETs are mounted to. I don't know where you've got the idea that transistors don't produce heat.

Where there is current, there is resistance. A superconductor is by definition the only counter example possible here, so until superconductors become common in consumer electronics I think it's a safe claim to make.

Actually I think I'm wrong since you need a load or short circuit for current to flow.
