We managed to find a small tantalum bead capacitor with legs that fits in this space nicely. A touch of glue for stability and the problem is solved permanently.

Got them from Maplin, which might be tricky now.

But something like this should do it:

Cheers Andy.

Have you had a play with temperature calibration? Do PKN have any instructions?

If you go to temp calibration menu and when it says "enter password" press both jog wheels in then up and down on both sides...

We have put these capacitors into old PKN amps as replacement, there is just 3mm room so therefore the 2.5mm thick component:

This problem has been eliminated several years ago. Normally the temperature calibration never needs re-calibration.
We have several 'running in the field' XE4000, 2500 since 2006 without need to touch anything.

If you put the capacitor 'in the hole' , you have a little bit more than 3mm, as a small capacitor can sit inside the hole between the wires.

Thanks. I'd also be interested to know if we can upgrade the firmware of these amps, mine are all mismatched. Perhaps there is a UART exposed somewhere?

A little bump! 

At the moment I'm driving my 4 BMS 18S430V2 and 15S330 (with 4554) on two I-tech 4000's.
Per Itech one channel sub, and one mid/high. Now I have no headroom what so all on the subs, and I just need some more power. Ofcourse I could switch one 4000 with a 6000 or maybe even a 8000, but before I make this decision I would like to look at some other options.

-Lab gruppen PLM10000Q (instead of two Itech 4000) yes I know this is not a big step in power, but it has a very nice DSP, and I could use it in bridge with another amp if it needs to go loud.

-2X PKN XE6000 with Xilica XP3060

There are so much options and nice stuff Cry

iTech is way better on sub duty. Tested them side by side with the 8000 and it spanked the PKN badly.

better than one xe6000? Maybe.
but not better than two of xe6000.

I can get two of xe10000 for the money of PLM and still 2racks total
+ more headroom!

Maybe also nice to know, my current subs don't do much below 40/45 Hz (so not really subs LOL).
One problem with the I-tech is still reliability, the current ones I have, have been serviced and are now up to spec. Probably something that's not the case with all I-techs.

Or run the two 4000's bridge 4 ohm, but then they are current limited.
