I’ve looked in the user manuals and forums for an answer to this, but have not found one.
My BHK 300 amps arrive today, and my P10s arrive Monday. I am re-arranging items in my main shelving rack. I realize that air flow like the Altamonte Pass would be ideal, but pragmatically, I either need to place both amps and regenerators in the cabinet [a nice large, wide, deep rosewood cabinet with open back], or one set [either the amps or the regens] on the floor. The floor has thick pile carpeting. While I am waiting on custom Mapleshade platforms, I will use a PowerBase on the carpet if the cabinet cannot accommodate both [I think it can].
What would be the minimum recommended spacing around each unit? Right now, my Merrill Veritas amps and P5 units have been functioning quite nicely in the cabinet, each with approximately 1.5 to 2 inches all around the chassis [plus open back & front]. Both the BHK and the P10 will require more height, but I can adjust for the height and still preserve 1-2 inches of free space around all surfaces. Will that be sufficient?
Both the P10s and the BHKs are amplifiers; is either more or less sensitive to air flow, in case I have to pick one to be exiled from the cabinet?
