    I'm looking at getting a new sound system for my PC, and my question is, would a system with a large subwoofer create enough vibration to upset my harddrive?

    Thanks guys.

    If your going to get that radical/or are so hard of hearing, might want to invest in some solid earphones:D

    :laugh: Well I guess thats another option... but how much power do you think I could goto until I'd risk hurting my hardware? I'm not talking like huge $2000 sound system, but something decent with some good bass and clearity.

    might sound a little strange, but if you can get some kind of shock absorber for your PC, like a big chunk of foan for it to sit on (could be hard with a tower...) then it would take most of the vibration.. I'm fairly sure that as long as your case isn't jumping up and down, or moving along the desk / floor.. it should be ok..

    I have a 400watt stereo with 2-15 inch subs hooked up to my pc ....When the part starts the volume somehow ends up to be full blast....My pc never skips a beat

    But I do have my case on solid floor.....I wouldn't trust it on a desk

    Yeah - just remember to put some cotton in the dogs ears, cover the fish tank, and cinch up the belt in the ol' game seat -- then let 'er rip!;)

    if you look up your HD manfacturers specs they usually state operating shock that they can handle, and usually this is rated in G's if you have a system for under 2k that generates Gs of shock, tell me!!!
