    i'm in the process of getting supplies together to build a hush box for my extra loud projector. i plan on using a 4 sided box with the ceiling face and front face open with dampening material lining the inside. then i'd like one of these pc fanshereblowing air in on one side in the back and another blowing air out across from the other. i bought a 12vDC converter which states it can handle 300mA. my question is, can i run both fans off the converter with no loss of air flow, or should i buy a seperate converter so each fan can have it's own?

    thanks guys,

    eric

    You can run both off the 300 mA converter. Those fans specs say they draw 75 and 85 mA, so two would draw either 150 or 170 mA.
