I currently have an old computer fan on the bottom ledge of my kegerator helping with air circulation inside. I would like to purchase another fan, build a tower cooler from a hobby box, tie the 2 fans together with 1 plug, and call it a day. I've attached a pic of what I'd like to do. I want to get a DC fan for the tower because I currently have a battery operated fan that's designed to wear around your neck and blow cool air to your face. Here's the questions:
- I see everyone saying there's links to how to build the cooler from hobby boxes from Radio shack, but can't find links to a build. Most people are posting links to other peoples installations. Do I install the fan onto the box, wire it up, cut a separate hole anywhere in the hobby box for the tubing and that's it? Maybe I'm not going deep enough into the forums. I have a 120mm fan.
- Speaking of wiring, in my picture attached, you'll see that my fans came with a 3 pin plug adapter. How do I determine which is +/- and other?
- Also on wiring once I figure out the +/- on the fans, can I just splice all the plus wires(DC adapter(+), 2 (+) wires from fans) together? Same for the negative? I'm a mechanical guy, so I'd find some way to build a power header manifold. The fans do have 2 built in LED's so maybe the extra wire is for that? I figured LEDs wouldn't create much heat or enough to matter but would give a nice glow when friends want to see the keg.
- My DC adapter is 12VDC 1A and each fan is 12VDC .35A. I'm assuming I can tie them both into the same power adapter?
Any and all help is appreciated as always.
