Has your amp ever been so cold that it frosted? I went out to my truck today to wire up the new rcas& 9887 put that in before i did checked frontstage amp next thing i know it was frosted im not talkn a little bit. Im talkn completley. So i went inside got my mom's blow dryer and aimed it towards amp to make all that melt luckly none of it hurt the amp.

let it warm up slowly IMO. you warm it up to fast you could get condensation (sp?) on the inside of the amp. might not be good if it starts to drip on the board. thats just my thought though. i think it would be fine just to leave it as is, and play your music. that amp will never get that warm, that fast to get condensation.

yea i have had frost on my amp before, i just let it do its own thing (i didnt blow gry it or anything) i figured it would be the safest way, and avoid condensation, every so often, i will just take a rag and wipe off what i can
