RE: Help with electronics making my audio roomTOO hot.

Not too sure about the heater hood method, unless you were pumping the hot air into a colder enviroment. Like outdoors. Convection hoods work well when you are moving hot air to a colder area. If the ceiling is not that much colder than the floor, you may not get much hot air movement. Not like the temp difference of hot air from cooking to the roof.

What you prolly need is a Carnot-cycle engine. Like an AC or refrigerator. One that does work in order to generate that temperature gradiant, to insure proper air movement of heat. I place a small room AC at the top of the listening/guitar amp room. Divert hot air to the ceiling and turn on the AC when the room starts getting too hot. I suppose you could place a vent near the ceiling, provided it goes to a consistently colder place than the room.
