  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hey guys, so I recently purchased a Vankyo V630 projector due to it being very reasonably priced and good reviews. I quickly realized that the cooling fans on this model are very loud, to the point of being distracting during quiet scenes of movies. So I returned it and am now in the market for...
  2. Home Theater In A Box
    Hello, Re : Panasonic DMR BS850EBK - VW9FA003041 I have a Panasonic DMR-BS850 Blu-Ray Recorder with 500GB HDD - Twin Freesat+ HD Tuner with a noisey fan on the back and i am wanting to replace it with something much quiter. It is an external fan so i would have thought that hopefully makes it...
  3. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have three small USB fans available to cool my new Denon AVR. Wondering whether it's more efficient to place the fans (on top) so they (i) force air into the unit, (ii) exhaust air out of the unit, or (iii) stagger the fans (e.g. two forcing air in, one pulling air out - or one in, two out)...
  4. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi all, I have bought a used W1070, succesfully used it once, and since then have had problems with overheating. The projector shuts down after about 5 minutes of use and the TEMP light is red. I soon realized that the front lamp fan was not running at all. I opened the case and disassembled...
  5. Theater Room Items & Accessories
    AC Infinity's Aircom Series makes fans that provide a flexible, easy solution to air circulation problems. This is a good thing because sometimes space in a system rack or stack can be tight, and gear like AVRs and amplifiers can run hot. When I was asked if I wanted to check out the AC...
  6. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I've converted a linen closet into an equipment rack for our home theater installation, and everything works great except for the mechanical Dayton thermostat that I installed to turn on the quiet bathroom fan I'm using to keep equipment cool on warmer days (or when the PS3 or receiver are on...
  7. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Thought I'd share some pictures of a fan mod I did for my subwoofer amp. Just recently put together a DIY 18" Ultimax subwoofer because my old one died :mad: Got the sub and 4 cu ft. Sealed enclosure flat pack from Parts Express. Link is here...
  8. Rear Projection Units
    Hi AVS! First time posting on this forum. I bougth a benq W1070+ projector and want to build a Hush box to reduce the fan noise. I want the cheapest possible way of doing this. I figure that it would be great if you could power two fans with the mini USB on the back of the projector. I got...
  9. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have repaired many of these units (the HDMI switching problem) and have usually installed a slim but very large 12v DC 250MM case fan at the top of each unit to keep them cool. Each time I have modified and tied in a standard AC adapter that produced about 10V DC to under-drive the fan to...
  10. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    So, I would greatly appreciate any help with this situation. In the attached pictures you will see that our living room is about 11.5 feet by 18 feet. I plan to ceiling mount the projector about 11 feet back (the yellow square) centered left/right in the room projecting onto the wall at the top...
