    Adding some heat sink is a good shout. I do like fans though. I'll weigh up the pros and Cons

    Fans are very effective. Just figure on replacing them every few years. Depending on the location, and how much dust is in the air. Think of your ceiling fans, how much dust do you knock off of them every time you clean them? I clean mine probably every 6 months, and the dust is horrible! I worked on computers, and Iíve seen those little fans clogged slam up, causing computers to overheat, and rattle and hum. I recall a computer out in a warehouse office, and when I pulled the cover, the dust was the shape of the cover! A big square block of dust bunnies! I know your home is cleaner than that, but fans do work! They just require maintenance.

    Yes, I totally agree with you there. Maintenance is key

    I'd probably just Bung a 1" fan there, to circulate the air inside.

    In through the vents out through the fan.

    You want massive heatsinks not fans. All serious gear has massive heatsinks. That's not happened by chance.

    Nowt wrong with massive. People these days seem to have massive fridge freezers. Was at a place the other night and the thing was so big it took up a quarter of the kitchen. Ice dispenser built in though, which is classy.


    But seems to me if you can have a massive fridge freezer taking up all that space even a really big amp is nothing by comparison.

    Yeah, but how did it sound? A bit stark and lacking warmth I bet?
