How about a little blue LED that lights up when the fan is operating?

Why?  Costs are high enough already.  Just my opinion.

I'd rather look at chicks while I'm playing than another led.

Not sure really, it's just that there have been a few folks posting about thermal issues and it might be a nice early warning signal to see if your fan is going all night at a gig or only periodically.

The only reason I could justify would be to know that the fan's on so you don't shut the amp off while it is still cooling?

you could always turn the fan the other way around,they say it makes noise when the fan comes on,atleast you'll know it's on,or you can buy one of those frilly things that blow when the fan comes on,LOL




 I like that idea,where's my kids bike at?

How bout baseball cards in the spokes of the fan housing. That way when it comes on you know it, and you get this really cool Harley sound as a bonus [:D]

The WTX has a 'protection' light, which I think works with thermal overload as well as output power oveload?
