I need some advice on how to add cooling fans to my AV cabinet and not compromise the soundproof shell I've built around it. I basically built a 2x4 wall on all 5 sides and insulating with Roxul and DD/GG. Now I have to figure out how to install fans and still not allow sound to escape.
Here are a couple pictures of where it currently stands:
Back Side Door Open:
I'm thinking about making a U-shaped box that doubles back on itself and lining with acoustic sticky vinyl sheeting, with the fan a the end of the U, going along the principal that sound doesn't turn corners very well. Would have 1 fan pushing air into the bottom and 1 fan pulling heat out the top to encourage hot air to rise out the top of the cabinet.
Has anyone else encountered this scenario and how did you handle it????
Oh yea, I got a little bit of first layer drywall on the ceiling above the stage area:
