my old blaupunkt used to overheat because it never had any rca's on the back and the audio fitting place used some wire and put it somewere in the back. what sort of system you got?

If you got the standard size speakers in there (10cm) then they will not be able to handle lower frequencies at any sort of volume above quiet.

Have you checked as to whether there's anything in the way impeding airflow to the back of the HU?

Is it a new HU or second hand?

RCA - a standard signal wire used in home audio as well as car audio. Has 2 plugs on either end - 1 red and 1 white. Might not have them on Blaupunkts - it's one of the few manufacturers who sell RCA adapters separately from the HU.

Ideally, yes, you'd need larger speakers - th problem comes with trying to fit them in.

It's possible that the HU dos get that hot normally - does it work OK apart from the heat problem?

Blau's don't have RCA's. You need an adapter that plugs into the back.
This has nothing to do with overheating.
