Well, HT is mostly finished, and we are watching movies. I have a 5 x 5 room for all the equipment, 10ft ceiling. We put an AC duct with return and a silent fan. I have the fan on an electronic gauge that will turn it on when room hits 80". A/C is tied to HT which is zoned separately from rest of the house.
The room is located in the back of the HT and has a door. I keep the eq room door open when the HT is not in use, but when we watch a movie, it has to be closed for noise and lights.
The room gets HOT, like in the 90's with the fan going. When I touch the equipment they are very very warm. All the equipment is located in a rack to that adds to the temp of the gear. There are 4 amps, plus associated gear in that room.
I've tossed around the idea of putting a mini-split unit in the room, something around 9-12k BTU.
Does anyone have any experience with these types of units?
Is 9K btu enough, should I go with the 12k?
I've looked at the Mit Mr Slim (Cool Only) series. On quiet mode the specs say they are < 20db... This is probably quieter than the fan that is running in there during the movie.
If you have an experience with this please let me know.
