How about using a spinner to create some air flow

The tranistors don't care how they are kept cool... Very good idea!

Well done! That is seriously banging! Truly, where the rim meets the audio road!

Actually, maybe not such a good idea... a lot depends on how hot it actually gets after being run for a few hours or more. Of course if you never run for a few hours, it does not matter.

The auto rim will have a high thermal mass, but beyond that point it probably does not actually cool via convection very well... so IF the rim gets hot, then it could get to the point where it is a problem...

Watdiy, place your fingers on the mosfets after it has run for a while, IF it feels too hot to keep your fingers on the mosfets then it is not good. IF it is OK to keep your fingers on the mosfets then you are good.

Simple test.

Thanks for the good advice from everyone. I try the handle while turning the wheel to work some time in the very heat of the Class A level, normal ... not be concerned
