    I am seeking information on installing cooling fans to the rear grill of my 300 Pro.

    I have heard of people doing this and I want to give it a go.

    I'd prefer to wire the fans into the chassis, i.e., not have them powered with another cord.

    Can anyone provide information or sources to make this modification?

    Thanks

    Get a relatively quiet line voltage fan with good air flow like a 80mm to 120mm fan. Mount it to blow out the back and wire it into the switched side of the amp's power switch. You will probably need a wire grill for finger protection.

    I was wondering if this worked for you and made a difference to the amps operating temperature. Is it quiet?
    I was going to put a 6volt fan on the back with a walmart plug for quiet operation.

    cheers
