Ya, we were all worried about what you were going to do about that. All kidding aside, it's only in the 90's in Prescott. Still using tubes, although it's only a 8 watt per channel amp.....
When I got in my Jeep the thermometer read 132 degrees - Yowza! the next few days they are predicting 118 or so. But in the sun (132 degrees) it's killer! We lost five hikers in the last two days from the heat.
How's the fire situation up there? I was just hiking up there just before the fires.
No fires here in Prescott....
It's a dry heat. :)
I'm also in the Phoenix area, sort of adjusted to it by schedule and activities. Bike ride and other things outside 5AM to around 9AM. In the pool 5:30PM to 8:30PM.
Some years switch to lower power tubes, but solar panels and more BTU's compensate for the tubes.
Even in the sun I can hike into the low hundreds. Once it gets above 104 you are taking your life in your hands. Something about 104 seems to be the human physiological cut off point.
this time of year in central Arizona the news reports a death or two a week, mostly tourists, that die because of the heat. Last week three Germans and three locals in their 20's.
I still work in the yard or in my garage for an hour before I have to either sit down or go inside to cool off. You do acclimate to higher temperatures. I prefer and feel more comfortable with temps in the mid 90's
how high do you allow your listening room to rise? Do you require frequent hydration?
I've got sixteen 6550C outputs going in my amps. Upstairs thermostat set to 79 with ceiling fan on low speed. Quite comfortable for me. :)
