 Temperature of amps...

 I've recently hooked up two 12" Alpine R's up to an Alpine MP1000 mono block amp. I've learned how to hook these up so that's it's at a 2 ohm impedance. 

 I'm concerned that this amp is running excessively hot. What's a good way to tell if I'm just trippin', or if in fact this amp is running too hot?

 I have the gain turned up to a little past 1/4, so... I'm not even working this fucker, IMO.

 I've got my amp mounted to the back seat, which I normally have down, so that it can have some airflow. I also make sure, for the most part, that there's some airflow TO the amp. Via, the back windows down.

I know you're not supposed to, but I removed my rear speakers for a port between the trunk and the cabin, and my sub amps just happen to mount to the rack beneath the opening from the rear speakers. Air flows right down onto them constantly. Maybe something like that?
