blower "spliter"
 
I have a 205V (X1) - does anybody know if they make a blower tube splitter (Y), where I can take some air flow off the left to put on the amp? My amp gets crazy hot on really hot days when we are cranking it, and no wonder, no air flow in that compartment.

I'm just split ballin' here, I know it's 3/4 inch.... not 3 or 4 inch but you get the idea of what you'd need

and aside from that, just about any HVAC shop could probably put something together for you.... but sheetmetal won't do well in marine applications

How about using a PVC Y and put stubs off of the Y and connect the blower hose over the stubs?

Basically the same idea that Milk is referring to...

I have a splitter for the heat hose in the boat so I know they are available somewhere. You can probably find one cheaper, but if you are in a pinch, you could get that part from your friendly neighborhood MC dealer. I believe it is 3" which would work with a blower hose perfectly.

That seems like a long run for the blower. Is your blower installed in the engine compartment? Where are your amps?

Blowers are cheap. I would just install a secondary blower dedicated for the stereo equipment.

Yes, that is an excellent idea...then you do not have any engine exhaust blowing on a warm amp...that could be bad!

another, pricier option is buying a new amp... class D would keep it much cooler in there

i think he means the air intakes... on the 205V they're on the sides of the gunwales in the observer's storage compartment.

Heater Craft has 2" or 3" "Y"s for the heaters. They also carry the black vent hose.

in the limousine, there is AC/Heat ductwork similar to the bilge ductwork these boats use.... but, it's smaller:(
as mentioned, a dedicated Atwood blower with fresh air hose/plumbing would be a better option
