hey guyS, I bought the fans that johnplayerson said to get. I understand how to essentially do it. At least I think I do. Lol.
My question is, with the new fans I bought, they have 3 wires where as the CV-5000 fans only have 2. How do I figure out which wires on the new fans are positive and negative? And what do I do with the third? Just leave it I assume.
Any help and clarification is greatly appreciated.
If the fans are DC, I think they should be.
The 3rd wire should be a speed sensor, and can be left unhooked.
As for finding the + and - wires, tap wires to a 9V battery till the fan spins the right way.
The fans will very probably be moving less air than the originals, hence they are quieter. They should be fine as the CV5000 is designed to be pumping out 5000w for hours as part of an amp stack for a stadium full of people, seemingly, so us listening to a couple of movies at home shouldn't kill it
That said, I'm just going to stick mine in a cupboard! lol
The fans are at the back and suck air through from the front and blow it out the back.
Don't forget the QSC RMX 5050, rated the same as the CV 5000 according to QSC, drives the same load threw only 12 transistors per channel, and cools the whole amplifier with only one 4 inch fan, So slowing down 2 fans on a cv 5000 with 16 output transistors getting less heat per transistor should not be a concern. )
A Good amplifier requires a adequate power supply, It does not matter what the amplifier is capable of if the power supply will not provide the power required. Most amplifiers have under rated power supplies. It is up to you to make sure you get the ones that are least under rated if at all.
