staying cool

so I was reading a thread on another forum that talked about subs cool during daily applications, and I just thought I'd ask here.

how do you guys keep your subs from heating up?

my first guess was just be smart about it and try not to burn things out, but if there are other ways please let us know

before i go out bumping i tape ice packs to my sub magnets, and bring a cooler with another 5-10 (depending how long im gonna be out for).

Works amazing for me, no problems yet.

You could rip out a friends' neon blue liquid cooling tubes from their alienware computer and wrap it around the VC. Would that even work? Liquid cooling?
