    My sub is a JBL PSW-1000 and it sounds and performs very good except that it runs hot after a while of loud music. But the worst part is that it shuts itself down when it gets really hot, it only happens with CDs, I can play two movies straight and nothing happens. How can I cool it down or keep it cool without lowering the volume? The sub's level is at 1/3 its maximum and the receiver is at -5dB for the sub level. I like the sub, all I want is to keep it from reaching the point of heat where it shuts off for security. Thanx.

    i dont know if lots of people have this type of AC in their house, but our vents in the TV/family room come from the floor. i would just stick it on top of one of the vents, but you'd probably have to come up with something more clever.

    You might be able to add a very inexpensive *personal* fan too. I used to have a big 18" woof that did this too. Man, you could COOK eggs on it after a while. Anyway---I got a little *snake* looking fan and put it right under the amp fins point up *through* them. Worked great...and I think it was like $5 at the local discount store.
