Default Amp Mod.

My amp.. a 800w Pioneer Premier doesnt have a fan built in to it. So what I was going to do is build a box and take the guts out of the amp and put a plexi class cover on the top with maybe a neon inside. I will prolly mount 1 or 2 small fans on the top or sides of it.

Any hints or ideas for materials or design?? :P

Why don't you take the amp apart and make slits for air next to the heatsink and screw a fan onto it? It would probably be easier.

SO basically you want to build a new chassis for the internals of the amp? hmm just be very careful you dont bust anything You could probably make it out of either painted MDF or aluminum sheet metal, if you have access to a bender and rivets. I think that amps are cool enough as they are

the only time i see my amp is when i open the trunk to adjust the gain or grab some junk from the trunk. i guess if you go to shows it would be cool. but otherwise your going to be opening your trunk just to show people your amp lights
