Ok so this is for cooling only? My PJ is outside of the room. I have a 13'' high velocity fan placed next to the PJ for cooling. So as long as cooling is not an issue is there anything else I need to consider?

Does anyone know of a 3rd party mnfr that makes theirs with the flap?

The 2nd one you posted does have the flapper...
IF you get one please let us know how it works out as I'll be very interested to see as that's a dam good price for a bulb.

FYI,
I had a bulb from AVS with the flapper and it lasted only 750hrs before it was completely DEAD!
I sure hope it was defective!
Of course the good folks at AVS (Mike) replaced it so I'm looking forward to see how many hours I do with the replacement.

Like you I really don't like spending $400 on a bulb...it's so ridiculous at that price!

My Build Thread
Equipment Speakers:
3x 1099's for LCR duty
4x Fusion 8's for surround duty
8x subs: 4x FTW21's and 4x SI18's
