I have a 1500 watt amp sitting on top of my HTPC for several years now with no issues. But no I would not worry about your situation. Ask ! MaximusTheGrate, Dec 20, 2016, in forum: Hardware Replies: 1 Views: 66 cwwozniak Dec 21, 2016 Thread Status: Not open for further replies.

At 1000 watts, it probably is not a cheap system that did not shield properly. ReggaeMixerMay 2, 2011, 4:01 PM Don't think you'll have any problem at all...

Most people are MORE worried about shielded speakers being close to their hard drive and less about vibrations. by Jedson3614 › In Win 509 ROG Gaming eATX by khaosgamer › NZXT S340 Mid Tower Cases CA-S340W-B1 Glossy Black by AyyMD › ViewSonic VX2757-MHD 27-inch 1080p Gaming Monitor with 2ms, http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/304262-28-subwoofer-close-computer Was absolutly insane, spun the nuts right off.

The sub from my 5500's makes the side fo my computer rattle, i worry about vibrations being transfered to my hard drives.

Try to research your issue before posting, don't be vague We are not a review site. It's a fairly high quality sub, so I don't expect the magnetic fields to be a concern, but maybe the vibrations? Forgot your password? Dude, think like this.

Imagine this: Your hard drive heads hopping, skipping, jumping, and grinding on the platter surface!Click to Yes, I listen to it loud at home during normal hours. http://esecurelive.com/is-my/is-my-hard-drive-toast.html That's what I call a close shave.

Moral of the message? This includes asking for us to link to your subreddit, forum, bulletin board, newsgroup, Facebook page, whatever. Don't worry about it too much..........if you really are that concerned, then yeah, turn it down or isolate your hard drive somehow. #20 EvilYoda, Jun 15, 2002 Jerboy Banned Joined:
