Cooling MCM Media Cabinet
My wife absolutely hates my receiver that we use in our living room, so I've been looking for a way to hide it away. I finally broke down and bought a nice mid-century credenza. It looks great, but clearly not designed to be a media console. So, I'm going to try to retrofit it with some fans and wanted to get some opinions.
My setup in my living room is pretty tame. In the cabinet, I'm only expecting to have a Playstation 4, a receiver, an Amazon FireTV & a Logitech Harmony Ultimate remote. I'll mount all surge protectors behind the cabinet.
I have two receivers that I could use: Denon AVRX3300W or a Pioneer SC-1223-k. The Denon is a better/more expensive receiver, so I could use it in our media room. I think the SC-1223-k probably produces less heat as well.
To vent, I am considering using the AC Infinity AIRPLATE T7 directly above the receiver and below the second shelf. Do you guys think that is sufficient or am I going to be in trouble? Any suggestions on how I should build this out?
