We’re Active Thermal Management and we’ve got the coolest stuff for the hottest home theater and A/V installations. By cool we mean temperature lowering, life-extending, innovative devices that give a breath of fresh air to cramped, over-heated components. As one custom installer put it: “It isn’t cool to run hot!”

Most components are designed to run in well ventilated areas. Unfortunately, when installing several components in a compact area without adequate airflow, the combined heat will shorten the life of most expensive components. This is where we can really help. We produce a full spectrum of products that quietly and efficiently replace hot air with room-temperature air.

But we don’t just sell products … we solve problems. No matter how tough the situation, there is always an Active Thermal solution. Look over our web pages while keeping in mind that if you can’t find the solution you need in the products we currently offer, give us the challenge. We’re here to help you. Call and see just how cool we can make things for you. For more information please visit
