My Denon 3805 is getting pretty hot inside my TV Stand/cabinet. It has glass door in the front and it is made out of thick wood with paperboard in the back with 2 small cable holes back there. I would like to install a fan to blow air in or suck air out to help cooling. My first thought was to buy a computer fan and fit it in the paperboard. However, I would not know how to plug in the two wires to an outlet, and if I could it would probably burn out the fan anyways.. Has anyone in this great forum had this concern? Has anyone come up with a good solution, better than putting a 20 inch box fan in there? HA-HA.. wouldn't look to great. Thanks!

I use a fan for my Harman Kardon receiveer in which the fan is above the reciever and pulls the heat away from it. Use a thin fan maybe 6" to 8" in diameter and have the back of the fan to the back of your cabinet so that it will pull the hot air out of the cabinet instead of blowing air in. E.
