Cracks in EDP

My EDP seems to be pretty sensitive to heat. I just finished a looping show
outside in the Florida sun (it was 80 out today) and after about an hour of
my EDP baking in a 6-space rack, it started to add crackles and pops into
the loops. They got pretty bad, eventually I had to switch in my DL4
instead, and shut the EDP down for the rest of the set. Now I know it was
the EDP causing the pops, because I recorded some silence with no input 
the EDP and sure enough, the pops and crackles came back. This has happened
maybe half-a-dozen times when playing while it was hot outside in the sun. 
would like to know if anyone else has had this problem, and if it can be
solved, Is it just a matter of ventilation? A fan, perhaps? Is it just the
memory that is sensitive?

BTW, Misha, the other half of my duo Future Perfect, uses a DL4 to loop her
