Alright, a little help needed guys....

I'm building my own home entertainment center and am making it so thinks fit perfectly. I currently own the RX-V1000 receiver and am unsure how much breathing room I should allow?? What do you guys think? I've never had any problems with this unit overheating or even getting hot for that matter however I want to be safe. Thanks in advance for your advise!

The RXV-1000 can get very warm. If you're going to go with tight tolerances or a face plate, then install cooling fans. If you're not going to use cooling fans then the more space the better. I would think 3/4"-1" all around would work o.k. as a minimum if it's not enclosed.


These are not hard facts only estimates.

3/4"-1" on top? That's it? Wow, I am planning to give it 1" on each side and had been told about 4" on top. Does that sound right? I will be installing a cooling fan in the back and it should be quite open where the reciever will be. Is 4" on top pushing it with a fan?

Give it as much as you can. Any receiver putting out decent power will get hot. I'd be very nervous with 1" on top.

Most user manuals will contain this information... my receiver mandates 4"-6" on top.

We use about an inch all around with cooling fans fairly often without trouble, but I guess it depends on where the cooling fans are relative to the receiver. We place the cooling fans blowing directly on to the receiver or amplifiers and typically will have a push-pull configuration.
