The first thing I see thats a problem is that the amps are mounted upside down. The heat is being traped in the amp.
I think if you read the instructions it clearly states not to mount like that.

Yep that is a no no. Heat rises, and having the amp mounted inverted the heat has nowhere to go. I think this is more of a problem than no fan.

If at all possible remount them properly, and the radio shack PC fans work well. I run separate power wire on a relay for the amp trigger on/off switches, and I tie the fans into that.

Make sure you get brushless fans, otherwise you will have engine noise. Here is a picture of what you should use. they come in 4" and 6", you may be able to find smaller. Have them wired so when the system is powered on, so are the fans.
I have seen the 4in but where can I buy the 6inch fan?

Ill ck on the mounting of the amps.


Thanks
