Re: back plate temperture?

If you were doing enough to blow a fuse, it's no wonder they were warm.

What amp were you driving them with? Double check the impedance of the speakers to see if there's an issue.

I wouldn't worry about it. My AL-III's used to get warm when I was listening at moderate levels too ! I never had enough power to blow a fuse either.
