So that is something that helps keep your gear cool that you have in the separate room? Great idea. You do have quite a bit of gear in there and I can imagine that it gets toasty in there,

It does and it works very well it cools down the units quickly. I have a thermo controller also so when it hits 88 deg it kicks on. It's whisper quiet too.

Hey Frank, I recognize the name Antec from my PC-building expeditions. Did you modify your server rack with Antec cooling fans? Are you going to keep the Antec and the Cool Components gear running simultaneously?

That's a neat idea. My gear is in open racks right in my room. So I don't have to worry about gear overheating... But, in the summer time the heat FROM my gear(amps in particular) can make my room quite warm. Good thing I have ceiling fan that helps. I also have a second room fan if I need it. I also have a window that sun beats down on. But I have a feeling that my heavy curtains help keep out some of the sun so that helps a bit as well.

I got rid of the antec veris coolers did not do the job as well as the cool components.

Open rack is a good idea, the gear has excellent air flow. My gear has good air flow as well but the room gets warm esp in summer and esp we had a string of 104F + days.
post #1004 of 1228
Yeah I've always used open air racks. Just too convenient plus it can get hot here too. A string of 100+ days huh? Well, 2 summers back we had almost 62 days of at least 100 and almost a month where it didn't get below 105 and often got above 112. Good times for watching movies in a 3rd floor apt. with vaulted ceilings that aren't really served well by the under powered ac unit...

Well then I'm glad it doesn't get like that where we are ( touchwood ). I know up north of us its usually like that all summer round.
post #1006 of 1228
Yeah it was pretty miserable all around. I hate the heat but love the area I'm in. Might as well suck it up. I'm complaining about it being cold right now and it's only 3°c right now. I better enjoy it before summer!

I prefer winter over summer, I can get warm easily but keeping cool is harder

I think the cool component esp with a thermo controller does a great job. I went for the 4 fan for the pre amp and power and it actually cools the unit quiet quickly. Once its cooled down to desired temp it switches off. Another good investment. smile.gif



Cool component 4 fan

That's ok, getting the right shot sometimes takes time I'm happy with the original shot in the first post. smile.gif

Hey Frank, I'm loving the updated pics on the first page! Do you notice an audible difference with the front Fathoms setup the way they are? Also, in my old age, I must have forgotten that you had height channels. What movie(s) have you experienced that gets a lot of PLIIz action in those heights? I may add heights to my upgrade, if I can figure out how to implement them cleanly.

Not really I had them (Before I upgraded my pre amp to XT32) placed to the sides because the low end was too much at the front ( where they are now ) and we were going to move them to front when I purchased separate eq's. The brand of EQ was QSC but I was going to pay $$$ for these units and having to have them calibrated was going to cost even more. I decided to do the upgrade and waited for my friend to visit (from over East) with his calibration equipment and by moving them to the front (it raised the 50-80HZ also a few dbs higher)the Audyssey did actually help. Remember Ive calibrated these subs as one ( The beauty of the AVP has three sub inputs, can actually have more if I didnt do the heights because of the free assign). I raised the right back sub not too much but I didn't believe it did too much of a difference just a few dbs here and there. All in all Im happy with it and enjoying my movies, the subs are very tight and go very low in my room.

Height channels open up the front sound stage even more if you choose NEO x or DSX but I've noticed if you choose DSX options and dialog moves to left or right speaker you get an echo effect, sounds horrible. I believe dts NEO and DSX are mainly designed for wides and heights together. I don't have room for wides so I use the PL llz option which does a good job. Red tails was a good film, Avengers in the beginning when he was walking up the stairs was cool, but films that have rain, planes etc work a treat. Blends in with fronts well doesn't stand out ( which it shouldn't )

So Frank, you have that cool component thing in your equipment room(on your rack). That is certainly a neat thing to have. Did you ever have shut down issues with your gear before or did you just want to keep the gear cool. Does it just blow cool air into the room itself or is it setup so it sends air directly on your gear.

Hi Mike

I have 2 one above the Pre amp and the other above the Power Amp and when the ambient air hits a certain temp in the rack they kick in. Usually once components warm up.

That is a really neat thing to have. If I had my gear in a separate room I would look to do something similar.
