    I have a Denon receiver that is not enclosed in a cabinet. Will the dust bother the receiver or is it actually better to have it in the open because of the heat.

    My HT room is right by the heat pump unit. It's on the outside of the rear wall. I can hear it when the unit kicks in. Any ideas on how to fix this or limit it? The wall is already finished so any other way to reduce the noise I hear in the room?

    I'm planning my IB installation and the best option for my room is in the attic. I live in the easter region of San Diego and we get some pretty hot days in the summer time, I haven't actually verified it, but I bet the attic could hit at least 115 if not a little hotter. Will the heat be an...
  11. Amplifier Heat

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I used to think when I read about power amps heating up your room I thought that was a euphemism for they got a little hot to touch. Now I know that yes indeed it is possible to raise the temperature in your room (mine is small) to a noticeable degree with a pair of big monoblocs...

    Can you hear the difference that you probably didn’t even know was there on the mix in the first place, apart from when the level rises up a bit and it’s audible over the left and right fronts? The output is taken from the AVR and is at 0db level so turn down the level on your end. At 0:12...

  15. Heat Dissipation Cabinet Fans?

    AV Home Theater
    I have read bits and pieces on this forum about installing fans in cabinets to assist with dissipating the heat generated by high-wattage receiver units. Could use some assitance. What exactly should I be looking for? 12V? 6V? Is it better to have one larger fan that moves more air (CFM) or...
  16. Feature request for Heat Map view

    REW Forum
    Don't get me wrong, I think REW is great. I've worked with heat maps before, in fact, I've written applications with them. In many applications they are much easier to see the 3D data without getting lost. They are not as easy to guage the level because color is used for the level. But they...
