for an ingenious solution to the heat problem. I put washers that are about 1/16" thick under the top plate by each screw hole. The end result is it appears to have lowered the temps by 10 to 15 degrees F overall. The highest reading I got this evening after playing it for about 45 minutes was 115 degrees, with most readings being between 105 and 110 F. The top plate sticks up a tiny bit but not really bad.
The next time I go to Lowes I may try to pick up some that are just a tad thicker. I think that would really do the trick. Anyway, if your amp is getting hot under the collar you might want to give it a try. Thanks Ray!
If you have enough washers, you could just double up and be 1/8" thick.
Thanks for the compliment but we all are the beneficiary of useful ideas on this forum.
Now Ray, two stacked washers would be approaching tacky looking wouldn't it? : ) Got to keep some semblance of fashion here. I have thought of maybe finding or making little rectangular pieces that would be a bit thicker but would have more of a "belong here" look to them, i.e. build spacers that are part of the design rather than an add on. Still a great idea you had there. Can't help myself, I just love good, simple, effective design. Long live KISS!
I adore tacky, preferably really ugly, so you can see where I come from.
