I keep my electronics in a closet with the 2 sliding doors open only an inch on both sides. Keeps the little wire muncher out. I'd like to install a couple of cooling fans in the doors. Not sure what to buy, or where to plug it in at. Would be nice if toggled on/off with receiver.

Here's one option. A fan that looks easy to install with power source and will go on and off at pre-determined settings. But may not work well with my closet door because of the 2 sliding doors. They are fit up next to each other.

When I use my EP500 every day, I just leave it on. But when I know I won't be using it for more than a few days, I turn it off. For me that's generally on during the weekends, and off during the work-week.

I used to always leave it on, but then one night when my wife was out of town, I heard a low thump from somewhere in the house. It was like a heartbeat. After nearly pissing myself, I discovered that it was my sub. The really low-end sound was thumping very, very slowly. It went away when I turned it off and a tech told me that I just needed to unplug the EP500 for about 8 hours to dissipate a charge that had built up in the unit. Now I make sure to do that about once a year just so I don't hear that freaky sound again.

Yeah, I'm learning it seems to depend on the age of the unit with different amps.

I leave my P'digm DSP3400 on, it has the auto on/off feature when it detects input and will shut off after several minutes with no input.

I turn my amps off. But, thats mainly because idling each uses between 175-210 watts each.. x3... So, thats 600watts of power consumption just to idle the amps... I'm not willing to pay "that" much in electricity when i'm not using them.....

Have never turned any subs or solid state amps I've ever owned. The triggers turn on the Outlaw, twin 350's and ep600.

I, too, leave my EP500 in auto, triggered by the pre-pro, which although it is turned off an on by the remote (rather than the switch on the front panel) runs hotter in stand-by than any other component in the system and hotter than the amps after a 3 hour movie. The EP500 panel gets just over room temp in standby - have not checked after a good exercise regimen.
