I suspect ...

that the amp runs hotter in one case because the speaker attached is
less efficient, and/or is of a different impedance. Which means the
amp is underpowered for the load it is trying to drive.

I drive my LRS with a pair of PS Audio m700 class D monoblocks (700 wpc
@ 4 ohms). They never, ever get even a tad bit warm, at any volume level
or with any type of music I've tried so far. My Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum
II, otoh, was uncomfortably warm always - but it's a 100 wpc tube amp and
one should expect that.
