So beast, in ascending order of likely power, did you mean pounding your ears, and/or the speakers, and/or the amps?

Ya... I read it as both of them worked the amps to their limits. If I read wrong..... apologies.

Amp's DDR's were constantly flickering. I don't have enough guts to keep em sustained lit for more than a song or short movie segment. I know the circuitry is protecting the amp, but still. The subs were still in good shape with the 4 sealed being within their limits, but the big ported IB was starting to get a little smelly after some of the harder tracks. My ears? They were in good shape biggrin.gif

When you all were doing your fan mods, did you look into whether any of the modifications made would affect the temperature protection circuit? I wouldn't think so, but that doesn't mean much. tongue.gif

Doesn't appear to, but in a home environment, I VERY highly doubt you are ever going to trip that circuit even with the fan mod, unless you are intentionally trying to hit it.

Presumably that senses temperature so the effect would be that the quiet fan gets activated/turned up at a lower power level because of the lower CFM.

Thats what I was wondering. Modded, pounded on, yet no one noticed fans speeding up sooner or maybe they did but I didnt catch it.

I will tell you that after about two minutes of a demo disc playing at reference a scene from Art of flight my stock fans are fing humming in high speed mode.

I should get out the laser temp gun and do before and after but the fans aren't loud enough for me to hear them at normal volumes let alone movie watching volume.

Heh, that deadmau5 song isn't infrasonic or anywhere close, but it really is a heck of a test to see how your system can handle large power demands

At least once, and have also played some other very demanding material. All is good in the hood at this point smile.gif

Thanks for the input. Appreciated.

Have you noticed your new fans speeding up more than before?

Does anyone know what kind of connector this is?

I would like purchase a couple for the fan mod...

Just fyi. I was able to push a 3-pin pc fan connector over the two prongs on the IPR2. You bend the pins together just a bit and the 3-pin will slide on them and stay. You can easily put the original connector back over the pins as well (they don't stay bent).

Thanks man.

Yes, however, my replacement fans don't have connectors on them and I can't get the damn snap in terminals to come out of the factory connector. ugh!

These were the fans that I used that were pretty quiet. Although I also run a resistor on these fans to slow them down even more (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007PPHLCS/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005GSF1EG/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Since you already have fans you could always get the cheapest pc fan with 3 pin connector and cut the connector off and connect to your new fans. Or maybe you can get just the connector. Never shopped for just that.

Finding these amp fan connectors is a pain in the butt. I found the connectors for the Behringer amps. The same in the EP4000 & iNukes. Bought 10 of them for like $3 on eBay and also on Amazon. Takes a month to show up because they ship from hong kong.

OK, I think I have found the connector in case anyone has interest in using a factory style connector:

EDIT: These are wrong.

FYI, they also have the pins for the connectors. If you wan to spend $10 you can make a perfect factory style swap fan mod.

Can you get the pins the same place as the connectors? Care to post a link to both that could be added to the first post along with the fans used? I simply just cut the connectors off the stock fans and installed them onto the leads of the new fans with electric tape, but your method would certainly be more beneficial for a perfect stock fan type look.

I am not 100% sure, but I ordered these and will try them:

I am betting you could make just about any pin connector work though.



EDIT ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ These are wrong.

I don't get to quote myself very often, but I am hoping someone can try this so I know whether this is an option.

I really hope so, so I don't have to wait another few days for replacement fans to arrive.
I have plenty of quiet 12v fans....

I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem. These amps shutdown with high temps so I really don't think you would damage anything even if you did push it.

I realize the thermal protection circuit would engage and I am not concerned with overheating it. I have modded every amp I have ever owned.

However, some electronics will not startup or function properly without a working fan in the circuit.

So, I am wondering if any error codes or warnings or other nuisances arrive when one or more of the fans are disconnected.

I can't say for certain. I know I have started the iNukes without the fans and that's not an issue. I would be surprised if the IPR2s were any different.

Great, I hope that is the case. I will try mine as soon as I get a new power cord. Thanks for the info.

I am also running mine with the tiny little fan unplugged with no issue so far. Not sure how that translates to the bigger fans, but it seems to chug along just fine smile.gif

Yes, I did read that after re-perusing the thread. That is also good to know and I thank you for that tidbit.

That settles it, I will use my 12V fans in series driven from one fan connector. That is a bonus for me.
