Default Amp cooling modification.

So the Florida eat is scorching this year so before I decide to hookup the Goliath I am adding some cooling. I took the back plate off and cut out a new one. Drilled a ton of holes ranging from 3 to 7 on my 1"" step bit and installed an [email protected] 120mm fan. Thing moves a ton of air for it's size and is damn near impossible to hear.





However I do need to install a few spacers and raise the back plate about 2mm up because it's very close to touching some stuff in the amp
