I'm in the middle of modifying my entertainment centre for use with an LCD
TV. Everything's been moved around. I've also just bought a nice new (big,
heavy, heat producing) Yamaha RXV3800 AV receiver.
What I'm looking for is some type of 90° conduits for dispensing the heat
from the AV receiver section. Think the equivalent of side mounted car type
headers with integrated fans for collecting the heat and angling it out the
back of the entertainment centre. Anyone know of a product that can do this
or perhaps have jury-rigged such a setup?
No, you don't understand. Fans aren't the problem, I can get them easily. I
don't want to exhaust
straight out the back of the receiver component section. I want the heat to
exhaust out the right internal side panel side into the LCD section and then
do a 90° out the back. Basically, I'm looking for some type of porting
apparatus to guide the heat where I want that's also capable of holding a

I'm taking pictures of the conversion from CRT to LCD and I'll put them up
Those are commonly known as "muffin fans" and are also available in 110 volt
versions. I've got one on the side of my Dynaco 400 power amp. I think I
bought the one I'm using at Radio Shack some years ago.
How about just making a channel out of ply and attaching it to the
entertainment center? It doesn't need to be built like dust collection
piping as you'll still get plenty of flow regardless of how ugly it is inside.
You could even veneer the outside if appearance is an issue.
