    I HAVE A CARVER C1000A RECEIVER THAT I THINK HAS PLENTY OF POWER 200 WATTS TIMES 5 , THAT HAS HAD THERMAL SHUTDOWN A COUPLE OF TIMES NOW AT HIGH VOLUMES ?
    I WAS THINKING OF VENTILATING WITH FANS BUT WAS TOLD IT WOULD DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD BY SUCKING MORE DUST INSIDE THE RECEIVER AND CREATING PROBLEMS .
    I'M RUNNING THE NEW POLK RTi150'S AS MAINS CSi40 FOR CENTRE AND A COUPLE OF SONY TOWERS FOR THE REAR , AND A POWERED PSB 10 INCH SUB,
    MY QUESTION IS SHOULD I VENTILATE OR DO I NEED TO ADD ANOTHER AMP TO POWER THESE HUNGRY RTi150'S
    THANKS ..........
