    Can I add a fan to my receiver?

    I have a marantz 4500 receiver and the problem is it gets too hot because it is designed for 6 ohm speakers and my front speakers are 4 ohm so I added 2 ohm registers to each of the front speaker and it helped a little but now I am wondering if I can add 80 mm fan on top of the receiver.
    Will the magnetic field of the receiver will effect the sound ?

    I added a fan inside one of my cabinets, mounted just behind my amp with the air blowing out of the back of the cabinet. It works great, but I finally quit using it because of the fan noise. And it was the quietest one Rad. Shack sold at the time. So, beware of noise if you go this route.
