Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

Blue ribbon to Ray P

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!
