I have a number of home theater components in a cabinet built into the corner of my living room, and I've noticed it gets pretty hot in there. After doing a little research, it seems like I should really have some way to vent the cabinet to reduce the wear and tear on the components.
I'm considering installing two small fans, an intake at the bottom and an exhaust at the top.
My question is this - I don't want to have a visible intake fan, which leaves two walls - the exterior wall of the house or the wall which abuts the garage. Can I simply install a fan into one of those walls? There's insulation in there, so that leads me to believe this would not allow for any air flow.
Any thoughts on this are very much appreciated.
