    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask this, but I have an EQ that is sitting on top of the vents of my Yamaha receiver (I know, this is NOT GOOD) inside an entertainment center. I have installed exhaust fans behind the receiver. I have about 1 1/2" above the EQ. I need some recommendations as to what I can use to raise the EQ above the receiver. I thought of using vibrapods but they are not high enough. Any suggestions?

    Like Michael says, I'd take it off until I figured a better way. You could always build a forced air system into your receiver (one fan forcing air up from the bottom, with another sucking it out the top) and build some sort of duct. I think you're better off just putting the EQ somewhere else or getting a bigger AV rack.

    I agree with everybody else, get the EQ out of there. I would never put a receiver in an entertainment center, asuuming it's partially closed, let alone stack something on top of it as well. 3-4 inches above of the receiver is a minimum, IMO.
