i'd rather take the 220 and put it towards an amp that doesnt overheat if that were my problem, lol..

and regina, i think i know what you're talking about with the liquid gel stuff.. in 8th grade we did a science project with that stuff in different colors and made a model of a cell.. i got 5 dollars from a friend to each a little piece of ours.. you could see a little chunk was missing on the nucleus, lol.

There's a link from the website that had the pics, and they were only charging $150 per gallon for that stuff. I guess it's big with PC gamers that use liquid cooling. That way, if you spring a leak, nothing shorts out.

man i was truly thinking of doing this...i have two amps but with the second amp in i have no space to put the speakers i want to power with it so the amp and speakers are out of the truck. also the amp that is no in my truck is smaller and uglier then my phoenix gold amp so it wouldnt look that great with my current amp.

if that stuff wasnt so expensive i could put the two amps in smaller containers and stack them or sumthin of that sort, then i would have room. itd be so nice.

Doesn't take much fluid, if the box is designed right. It just has to be immersed, not floating in the stuff. You would then pump it into a radiator to remove the heat.

that water lookin gel would be nice if i knew its cooling properties. or maybe a dual layer type thing? man...the wallet does not want to know im thinking about this stuff. cuz once it starts, i dont stop until im satisfied (built my sub box about 5 or 6 times before i came to the one i have now, only because i didnt like how the others set or looked and nothing was wrong with them)

A buddy of mine work for a car sterio shop up here in washington and we tryed liquid cooling a pair of amps. we used the koolance system that pumps coolent threw plactic lines to the amp and runs the coolent threw copper lines that have been chromed for chemical reasons. the copper lines are connected to the transistors on the sides of the amps boards inside. YES IT WORKED! it brought the temp of the amps down almost 45% we were running a 2,000 watt D class amp that was over heating from the constant use and bad air flow in the car. there were a few things that needed to be changed but the only bad thing is that we were short on time and money and we had a leak and caught the amps on fire about a day later. we have plans to redo it soon in a truck.
