Default Cooling fan question??

So i am building a false floor which will completly hide my amps, battery and wiring and was looking into cooling fans to help keep the amps from over heating(primarily during the summer). Wondering if anybody else has added cooling fans and had any info that could be useful when i install mine. Don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to adding an electrical circuit without the risk of fire so any input at all would be appreciated.

Heres the fans i am going with, planning on getting 4 of them but that may change when i get them in my possession and see what they can do.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not to sure how it would workout because it would just be circulating heat (warm air) in a confined area... If it where all close off...

I would do an in and out setup.

Have 2 fans blowing air in and 2 fans pulling air out.

Keeps air circulating over the amps at all times

I also have 4 pimp fans I'll give you if you want to just pay shipping and a little extra for the time to box them up and ship them

Well, there would be an entrance(which is were the fan is) and an exit on the other side of the amps. So it would move fresh air from one side of the amps to the other side.

but its not pulling hot air out.

Best setup is a fan blowing in and a fan blowing out to pull the hot air out. Acts like a vent in an attic

I would put 3 on one side pushing air in and one on the other end pulling air out. IIRC positive pressure is better for cooling.

You just need to make sure they are 12V fans, (website is blocked) then run a relay off your remote wire on your H/U and have the relay power your fans. Just put a fuse in line of the relay and you should be good.

If you need more in-depth stuff I know madmatt or someone can help if I don't get to it first.

Just get a regular 4 pin relay from walmart or radioshack or something, and then wire it like this (going my memory and it's been a while, but I'm pretty sure it's right.)

Pin 30 +12V constant (Fused)
Pin 85 Ground
Pin 86 Remote from H/U
Pin 87 + of fans.

Wire the + of all the fans together in paralell, and all the - in parallel to the ground.

This way they all get the same amount of power and run at the same time.
