The best enclosure seems to be fire resistant = drywall construction. You will get heat build up and this will throw your tuning = off so an intake with a filter and an exhaust out into the open air that is = fan assisted is advisable. I did an article for *The Glue Pot* on how to calculate heat build up in a blower room that factors in the horsepower of =   the motor but if you have a forced ventilation of the blower room you = won't get much of a heat rise. As you can tell, many factors are involved and there is not enough room here for a comprehensive answer. Just know that = the blower produces heat that you normally do not want to go into the organ.   Al Sefl Also a great source of hot air...
