How does the fan of the Torpedo Studio work ?

Solution

The fan of the Torpedo Studio behaves according to the "Fan Control" parameter in the "Setup->System" menu.

 

  • Fan Control = Off

The fan is turned off. This allows an extra silent operation of the Torpedo VB-101. However, the power dissipation is less efficient, the maximum admissible power is reduced, and the unit may overheat faster. Don't worry though, the overheating warning and protection are still working, so you will be warned if overheating happens. This should only be selected with a low power amplifier (less than 20 Watts), or when using the line or digital inputs.

 

  • Fan Control = Auto

This is the default setting. The fan is controlled by the temperature monitor of the unit. The fan is turned on when the temperature reaches a threshold which depends on the room temperature and the power coming from the amplifier. The hotter the unit gets, the faster the fan turns. The fan reaches maximum speed when the temperature reaches approximately 80°C.
