I used a Makita XVJ03Z cordless jigsaw to make the back access provision/hole for the cooling fans. I also drilled some large ventilation holes for the lower shelves to let the rising heat reach the cooling/exhaust fans (blowing outward)
The assembly was easy. The fan controller has two bright LEDs (function status indicators) which I subdued with some dark film (Dim It light dimming sheets)--now I can see real-time fan status where the LED brightness matches my other AV component indicators.
The thermocouple control is spot on. However, even with the components turned-off, there is enough heat to cause the cooling fans to cycle on/off periodically--it is doing its job.
Once installed, I can detect only minimal noise. I wish it were quieter; however, I think the tradeoff for cooler AV components is well worth the cost, effort, and minor airflow background noise. Using a sound meter app, the ambient noise floor measured 26db and increased to 34db when the cooling fans are on; as measured from my seated position at 13.5 feet in front of the entertainment center.
I have the following gear in the cabinet: Denon AVR 4300H, Tivo Bolt+ (The 2 biggest heat offenders and the Tivo is always on), AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV and a Samsung UHD Bluray and a 9 port Netgear switch.
Now I can have the doors to the cabinet closed.
I have only used the setup for 2 days - I will try to update this after a few weeks or so.
The coolerguys thermostatically controlled 3-fan system was the perfect solution. I had to cut a rectangular hole between the upper and lower (same place I had tried vent hole)s. Installation was a breeze that took about an hour and now the fans are dissipating heat out of the electronics level into the upper level and I can feel the air flowing in from the bottom and out the top through the glass doors. It kicks on and off so I know its doing its job based on temp inside the cabinet. And I have to put my ear to the cabinet to hear the fans. This is an awesome product.
Now for more detailed thoughts: what you're buying here is an all-in-one kit for putting a couple of fans and a simple sensor in your cabinet. It includes all the hardware (even the mounting wood screws.) The sensor control unit has room for 4 fan inputs, so you could theoretically expand this system to push more air out or buy another couple of fans as an intake. The controller accepts a standard 3 pin input so any fan should do.
The kit is really easy to put together. If you can follow some simple instructions and the thought of taking a saw and a screwdriver to your cabinet doesn't send you into a panic then you can install this. It shouldn't even take more than an hour all in all.
I bears noting that the faceplate that this kit comes with is a thick plastic. One side is textured with a fine grain so it's not completely awful looking, but a punched metal plate would have been a lot nicer. I recommend installing this kit where it won't be seen.
Due to the plastic parts it seems to me that this product is priced a little too high for what it is. I understand that perhaps due to lower volume of product it wouldn't be possible to price it lower, but for what you get it just seems too expensive. There's not even any way to program your own range of temperatures into the logic controller, it's either 81-88F or always on.
