    FAN in AMP rack

    i plan to place my amp under the sub box in a chamber... i am running the amp at 4 ohms... there will be plenty of places for air to get in... but i was wondering if i should put a small fan in there as well... i am running at 4 ohms so the amp will not be working as hard if i were runnin at 2 ohms... does ya'll think a fan would be necessary?????

    If your just using a small, single fan you can get away with hooking it up to your remote line. I have had three hooked up to my ignition wire with out any problems. Some people may suggest using a relay but I don't and have not had any problems. Simply power up the positive and find a ground for the negative.
