Active Thermal Management Cool Line

Active Thermal Cool-Line
This slim, linear styling makes it ideal for use below flat-panel displays, or mounted on kick panels where quiet cooling is required and space is limited. Powerful but quiet cross-flow fans move air in or out of the enclosure to be ventilated. Temperature controlled and multi-speed, the fans are completely automatic. The aluminum Cool-Line systems ship configured to exhaust heated air from enclosures, but are easily changed in the field for use as intake devices. Wood Cool-Line versions must be ordered as either intake or exhaust models. Matching grilles, both metal and wood, are available without fans to trim passive openings.

Tech Hint! Adding a Room to an
A-BUS Installation Wirelessly

With the use of SoundCastís SubCast wireless TX/RX you can add a room on to an A-BUS installation. Of course we always recommend hard wiring but if youíre in a bind to get a cable Outdoors, all that is required is the SubCast TX/RX and an A-BUS to RCA converter manufactured by LeisureTech. Please see diagrams for further explanation and just ring us for any questions.

Installers CornerÖ

Brilliant Installation
Ken Burrows, of Love My TV, was over the moon with his first Active Thermal SEC-1 (small enclosure cooler) installation in an existing home theatre cabinet. The cabinet housed a plasma on a lift, AV receiver, MRA distribution system, DVD, and other components. “Almost two years of installation the cabinet was so hot it cooked the MRA box (no it wasn’t a Russound MZ controller). He researched the Active Thermal line and chose the SEC-1 due to the limited space and there was already a hole for natural ventilation. “The retrofit worked brilliant,” stated Ken. This was the first time a product was used from Active Thermal and he is now quoting the line regularly. The SEC-1 is generally used in exhaust mode, mounted to the rear panel of a cabinet at least 508mm from a wall.

Happy Customer

Vince of Pacific HiFi received a comforting email from a client regarding his wireless rear speaker installation:
"Just a quick email to thank you for recommending Subcast for our wireless installation needs. A truly perfect solution. Transmitting a full spectrum signal, the product is entirely suited to our needs, connecting a pair of Bose 901's as a second pair or 'rear' speakers in the main room. "
Cheers John
