Pull the internal speaker and  mount a fan in its stead. 
I have read that TT recommends using fan blowing out of the case. 
But I would try it both ways and see which keeps the internals the coolest.
One can place a small piece of window air conditioner filter on top of the fan if it pulls outside air in.
