Console Cooling System ... !!!

I have SSL AWS 948 console .
My room size is 5 x 3 x 3 m .
I have ventilation system in my room for cooling and heating.
But When I work with console , it create hot air near the console ( like my seating place ) . Rear of console is 50cm distance with wall and my ventilation is far from rear console .
When I work lonely in room it's not problem but when people is more I have a problem .
So , I need to some silent fan or other easy technology for putting up rear of console .
what is your suggestion ?
thnxxxx.

Bobby Summerfield in LA fixed up a system to air cool his Neve V series. He routed air tubes in and out of the frame to the AC system.

Back in the early 2000's, I had to put my laptop and mbox in the freezer during a few bounce outs. I used to run more than 1 instance of the Waves IR reverb, I liked to live dangerously...

Interesting problem. I would look into solutions they've come up with for computers, possibly simply adding a fan? I've heard of water cooled computers with a network of tiny tubes in it. Is your problem melting mixer, melting people or both?

Look up Bobby Summerfield in LA, he still works there. I don't have his # handy. Also look up the records here, he's posted the entire process.

BTW, he's a jolly good fellow from South Africa.

I read in an SSL manual that they can create a good 1.5 kilowatts of heat. Anyone would think they were full of tubes.

In the case of the V Neves lower current quality opamp replacements can reduce the power consumption up to -50%. Then they run cool.
