As for the fan mod.... I've done three so far. Takes like 15min on a clone. Spending what you did on the OEM, I wouldn't touch it...lol
Not going to touch it (either one) . In the great American tradition, I'll treat the symptom, not the problem ...
Actually, the clone amp will have the fan control set to come on only at higher temps. They call it their HT model. Since is is only driving the surrounds that should be fine. Pretty confident my sound isolation scheme will work so it's all good.
Regarding the amp debate, it will be pretty simple for me. Does the clone amp sound worse, the same or better to me. At it's price point, it's not a bad choice for surround duty in a dedicated HT if:
- It isn't DOA
- Doesn't crap out after a few hours, days, months of use.
- Doesn't catch fire and burn the house down
That's a reasonable bar set, don't you think?
