*This instructable requires electrical/electronics/woodworking tools and knowledge.*
***DO NOT MAKE THIS INSTRUCTABLE UNLESS YOU COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND
ELECTRICAL POWER AND TUBE AMPLIFICATION***
If you can't or don't want to make one for your self,
I soon will have them available at...
Step 1: Fan Cooling System (pics of on/off temperatures)
The Idea behind this instructable is that tube amplifiers get very HOT!
I understand that Hot tubes=Great tone!!
Although heat can kill an amplifier.
If your power transformer gets to hot, it will cost about $100 to replace,
heat will kill your capacitors in the amplifier killing your tone, and be costly to repair,
If the temp gets to hot inside the cabinet you speaker could blow, it will cost $50 or more!
So this system can keep your amp cool and save you money!!!
I have ran many tests with this system on many different amplifiers,
on average a power transformer gets to 120deg. or more,
with My fan cooling system the temp drops to about 70deg.
