Home theater temperature question

I am trying to choose a home theater system, but the dvd/receiver has to be able to go into a lower enclosed cabinet with glass doors.  Does anyone know if a system that runs cool enough to enclose like this?

Re: Home theater temperature question

Every manual I have ever read says that you should never enclose a piece of electronics.


With that said, I did enclose an entire rack of equipment, BUT I also installed a very quiet thermostatically controlled fan system to draw air through the cabinet.  If that is not possible then I would suggest looking for one of those laptop computer fan cooling units to place on top of your equipment to help keep it alive.  You could also remove the back of the enclosed cabinet, if possible.

I do not work for Best Buy and am not affiliated with them in any way. I like HT and want to help people improve their HT experience. "There is a LOT more than just having a TV to make a home theater"
