I have acquired 2 Crown XLS1500 power amps, can i stack them in a rack case without having overheating issues? Just wondered if anyone had done this and what results they have seen.
1. Keep them out of the sun
2. Try to leave at least 1U space between them
3. or Install a rack fan http://www.sweetwater.com/c875--Rack_Fans
4. Keep the covers off the racks while the amps are in use
5. Keep them out of the sun
The important thing is to make sure that the warm air that the amps blow into the rack has an easy escape route out the back (not out the front, where it can get sucked into the amps).
If you leave a space in between (which there should be no need to do), you need to install a blank panel to control the airflow.
