Has anyone measured the temp. of the the inside of a Whisper/Flow hushbox using a DILA, and also how does it handle the stray light that comes out the intake and exhaust of the Dila. since it is constructed of clear Plexiglass wouldn't that let the light go threw. thanks

The light isn't blocked in any way since it is clear plexiglass. I think Dave Beatty told me he could build it out of colored plexiglass though for a little extra $$.

I use a thermostat in my whisperflow to activate the 3 fans I use and the temp is currently set at roughly 74 degrees before they turn on. That takes all of 1 to 2 minutes once the D-ILA is turned on. I will measure the temp tonight for you as I've been meaning to do this anyway to make sure I have the fan speed set properly.

Regards,

Tom

Yikes! My Whisperflow was baking inside at 94 degrees! Needless to say I turned up the fan speed and will watch to see if I'll need to run all three fans.

don't feel bad i was watching a movie last night and my home made hush box was registering 116 degrees i immediately went over and tuned up the fan and took the sides off, i am really suprised it didn't shut off. i continued watching the movie with the sides off. How hot can these projectors run?

I have the whisperflow and I really recommend it.
The support and service from Dave was wonderful.
He designed also for me the brackets and how to set up the box from the ceiling.

Send an e-mail to Dave

Hi Kenh,

These PJ's can run pretty scaldingly hot before the temp sensors trip and shut down the lamp. While I didn't actually measure the temp of the one I tripped, it had to be in excess of 120 deg. Needless to say, however, high heat = short life (on everything), so keep it cool.

That actually would make sense, Patrick, as JVC would not build in a temp cutoff right at 95 deg, but rather a little above it. That along with electronic (10%) variance in values and the fact that there are fans continually blowing that hot air through, and a given PJ could easily approach or surpass 120 deg.

Hi Forum,

I have recently made a modification to the inside baffle of the WhisperFlow to improve airflow and lower inside temperature of the enclosure(at lower fan speeds). If anyone has an earlier enclosure and wants to modify, please call me. My goal is to have the best enclosure available at a low cost. Best wishes with your home theaters!
