I dont pay much attention to it. Are your subs smelling and getting extremely warm?

My 3.5k does it lightly and my sub never smells or gets extremely hot.

I was told not to pay too much attention to the light. If they start smelling then your clipping.

You may want to glance at the how to set your gain thread
You could be clipping or maybe under powering and the light is just sensitive
