when building a false floor what do you have to do when placing amps under plexi glass add fans? I want to do it but i am unsure if they will get the propper cooling and if not what steps do i have to take to assure that they do.

about this topic.. ive got some questions of my own..

what type of fannage would you suggest? PC fans do the trick? Would you suggest like 3 or 4 lets for 1000w Fosgate amp? And would someone recommend some threads or sites for tutorials on wiring fans like that and also LED lights for plexiglass.. Im clueless about how to setup the trunk like a christmas tree but i want to do it and sandblast a nice design into some plexiglass..

when using fans or leds your gonna want to run a relay for them.

look at the 6th diagram to learn how to wire them up. i would use around 4 fans and have 2 blowing air into the false floor and 2 blowing out.

here our the fans i got

When I make my cabinet for my 3 amps I will be either putting in six fans for intake and six fans for exhaust. I know someone would think it would be loud but I will be buying quite fans if I do that or I will contact Stinger Electronics about their amp fans. The PC fans idea sounds alot better though

PC fans will work fine.

They run off of 12v.

I recently took my computer in to be serviced at Circuit City, and they replaced my old loud fans with a new kind. Theyre so quiet that the computer processing information is far louder than the constant whoosh of the fans. I think theyre around 10 bucks a piece

yeah. I will be getting the big fans that are super quiet. they move alot more air than a traditional pc fan and are just as quiet if not quieter
