The results can range from unstable images or poor sound to thermal shutdown, or even to failure of your A/V components.

    These fans are SUPER quiet and have a noticeable affect on inner cabinet temp. They lose a star for the "crude"/flimsy finish of the speed controller and the temp sensor. The temp sensor does not stay in place and seems quite fragile. I would like to feel better about this vital component.

    Easy to install and works great.

    Best investment I've made for my A/V components A/V rec, Satellite, bluray and power center. Easy instructions to follow anlong with fast home delivery!
    JUAN -- mexico city, XX   7/6/2008
    It lacks some more power to move more air away from my A/V Receiver.
    BRET -- riverton, WY   3/9/2008
    Product performed as advertised. Fast shipping.
    KEVIN -- snohomish, WA   2/28/2008
    Fans don't move much air. Plus they rattle when in use.
    Dan the hometheater man -- hamilton, ontario. Canada   11/28/2007
    Recently ordered the 2+2 active thermal stage system and I am quite pleased with the easiness of installation and nice clean set up in my cabinets. They work great, quiet as can be. If I could just say "active thermal" is the only way to go! you can source this parts out maybe, but you'll never get the professional result. Thank You!
    CHRISTOPHER -- chicago, IL   11/16/2007
    Decent product, but WAY too expensive. If I'm going to pay a hundred dollars for a fan, I want something that moves a lot of air and is silent.
    JOEL -- austin, TX   11/15/2007
    I was having a problem with heat buildup inside my computer cabinet under my desk....not anymore. The fan keeps it cool now...and its very quiet.
    STEVEN -- salem, OR   10/8/2007
    Terrible product. It cost me $100, but puts out less air than a $10 cheapo from Walmart. Its a good idea with the always-on idea and the thermostat to give it more power, but even when its on, you bare feel the breeze and there is no way it is adequate for the 12+/- cubic feet of coverage it claims. Honestly it wouldn't cool a single component in a 6 cubic foot cabinet. Honestly, stay away from this. You'll just end up cutting holes in your cabinet, wasting money, and still have to buy another fan anyway. The design and quality of the fan seem fine, but its super wimpy. The thermostat seems really cheaply built and easily brakeable.
    JASON -- colorado springs, CO   8/2/2007
    Very good set up/design. A bit pricey, but does the job effectively. Easy to install.
    JOHN -- honolulu, HI   6/26/2007
    Very easy to install, works as advertised, would certainly recommend the product.
