Audio/Video equipment in a closet
Posted 01 May 2005 - 07:23 AM
I would like to install a plasma over a new fireplace I am designing but have nowhere to install my 921, Denon receiver and dvd player.'
I'll install everything with infrared repeaters on it.
I don't think the ventilation or lack of is any different that being hidden away in a tv stand with glass doors on it.

If the closet has a fairly tight fitting door, you won't have any air circulation. Putting your equipment on the shelf at the top will allow for considerable heat buildup. You need a way for that heat to escape.

I've got all of my components in custom enclosures mounted adjacent to my display. My Denon receiver has a thermostatically controlled fan (cost of a couple hundred bucks or so) that forces air down from above and the back of the enclosure has two fans that suck the hot air out. The toe kick in the bottom of the enclosure has a 1" X 19" wide slot that allows cool air to enter from the bottom.
System works well.
PM me if you want more details and I'll shoot you some pix.
