Rear Exhaust Fan Helps Keep Your AV Gear at an Optimum Temperature
The Aircom T8 and T9 from AC Infinity are quiet cooling fan systems designed to be placed on top of AV components such as receivers, amplifiers, and DVRs. Maintaining an optimal temperature for components prevents overheating, ensures constant performance, and extends their lifespan.
The LCD digital controller on the front of the system features a smart thermostat with speed control and status alerts. The steel enclosure houses three dual-ball bearing blowers that pulls heat out of the component and exhausts it out the rear with the T8 model and out the top with the T9 model. The slim low-profile design enables the unit to fit in tight spaces. On the backside are ports to connect and control additional fans. An AC power adapter is included.
Programming includes an easy-to-use thermostat and a SMART mode that automatically adjusts the fans speed to react to varying temperatures. Additional features include alarm alerts, fan failure triggers, power savings setting, display lock, and backup memory. Six fan speeds are available with three screen brightness settings. Behind the unit are ports that can control up to six individual AC Infinity AIRPLATE Cabinet fans and MULTIFAN Component fans.
Design and Construction
Each system features dual-ball bearing blowers rated at 67,000 hours and are certified by CE, UL, and RoHS. Blowers contain a PWM-controlled motor used to minimize noise during speed variations and are suspended in mid-air with silicone mounts to absorb vibrations. A low-profile design allows the unit to fit in applications with a limited height clearance. Aluminum and steel construction enables additional components up to 30 pounds to be stacked on top.

|This is fantastic, so much so I ordered a 2nd one!|
This is a fantastic product, ended up buying a second, first turn to on, set desired fan speed never more than 3 then set desired temperature in auto setting when it reaches within 4 degrees of this it turns on and at the lowest setting if it still continues to heat up the fan will speed up. When below that 4 degree threshold it is off, set alarm at 90 degrees for me and its ultra quiet too, settings are automatic based off heat. They also look great in my equipment rack pictured. ****If you do not change the fan speed before putting it in auto mode it will come on blasting i.e. loud change that before switching to Auto mode. Most electronics fail 98% of the time due to power or heat. I have the power protection covered after a bad 15k experience 15yrs ago and now heat problem solved and have used their products for some time, that they finally came out with component style devices which put a smile on my face. The device is perfect, set to auto at 80 degrees it turns on when needed and off when not, looks perfect on top of my high end receiver. Most electronics fail due to lack of proper protection and heat problems solved. Great! Wish I could adjust the brightness on the display though.....just sent a request for an answer you can turn it off though I just want it dimmer, love the display telling you temp, alarms, etc.

|After a small hiccup, the T-9 is the best cooling system ever!|
I purchased this in hopes of cooling down my Integra DHC-80.3 Surround Processor. It was running so hot that it was painful to leave my hand on the rear top panel after watching a two-hour movie. The entire chassis was as hot as one of the old steam radiators, well over 173 degrees using a laser thermometer. Once installed on top of the processor with the fans set at the next to slowest speed, the processor chassis remains cool to the touch and rarely does the T-9's exhaust temps get above 75 degrees. That's an almost 100 degree difference! This works so well I am buying a second T-9 in case this one wears out...and it's built like a tank. I am also getting the two-fan model to replace the noisy stock cooler in an iNUKE6000DSP pro amp I use to power a pair of 1000W+ infrasonic subs. Thanks to the great people at Audio Advisor for offering such an effective, well-built line of component cooling products!

|Practically Perfect In Every Way|
So I have a Denon receiver, the expensive, high end model with Dolby Atmos, etc. It has two modes, one an eco mode for power saving and another, essentially to turn that off and run it full power. In both modes it runs hot, as one would expect it to. But especially with the eco mode turned off... you could fry eggs on this baby. I have it in a bookshelf and have been concerned that it was not getting the proper ventilation. So I always ran it in the eco mode. I started to look on line for some kind of cooling fan. Last year I came across a product that would cost upward of $240.00 to configure it the way I wanted. I put it aside for another day. I recently began to research it again and came across the Aircom T9. Practically perfect. Although, ideally, I would love for it to vent out the front you can get it to vent out the top or back as the other unit did, there is so much value in this product, I didn't care. The fact that you can program it to run behind the scenes, as it were, to be able to set a temperature that it will come on at and even more so, that it had multi-speed fans that will progressively increase in speed as your device gets warmer... well, that's terrific. Add to that the unit has an alarm that will go off if the temperature rises above a temp. that I can set. Well, I don't even have to worry if a fan shuts down and my receiver starts to over heat because it will let me know. And all of this for a great price. Again, a lot of value built in here. At this point I've used if for a couple of days and the long term is where you can really tell. But right now... I'm very impressed. And, of course, most importantly, my receiver is now nice & cool, hopefully prolonging it's life and relieving me of "over heating" anxiety. Many thanks to the folks at AC Infinity. I highly recommend their product.

|Worth every penny|
My theater has 2 racks of gear that include 2 B&K 200.7's. With the receiver in Pre/Pro mode, the amps, Blu-Ray running, heat builds up quickly. I have 1 of these on each amp, and on the receiver as well. They trigger when needed, and power down to stand-by when their job is done. Heat is dissipated, and amps are happy. Though they are in a room off the theater, sound is not an issue, but even when I am in the room, they are barely audible. They work great, and look good. Don't hesitate. Buy them
