Hi,
I just ordered the Triwatt kit for my first build and am also building my own cabinet.
Is the top vent truly necessary with the open back? If so, where would I order the proper vent? I could make one out of sheet metal screen, but I’d rather not. Any ideas are greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum. Good luck with your build!

The more ventilation the better so I wouldn't leave out the vent. If you can't find suitable screen material at your local metal and building materials suppliers, search for "amplifier vent" on the Internet. Suppliers like Mojotone, Tube Amp Doctor, and Antique Electronic Supply sell vent covers and metal screen material.

I got impatient and used one of those gutter screens that goes in the downspout. I straightened it with heavy gloves on and used upholstery staples. Turned out great!

Thank you, I ended up ordering the vent and cabinet hardware from Mojotone. Unfortunately I forgot that cabinets have eight corners instead of four. I guess I’m helping support the shipping industry when I order my other four corners, lol.

Thanks,
Kev
