    Soooo I have my Z-5300 sub sitting about 3 inches away from my computer. With full bass playing quite often. Is it detrimental to the longevity of my computer? Should i move it to the top of my desk?(computer) I have a problem with the "length" of coords. And my desk at school is a piece of crap so i cant move it to the other side of desk.
    Only 2 options are
    -Below desk
    -On top of desk, same side.
    Just curious if this causes any dmg?:confused:
    Thanks!

    What about putting my printer on top of my sub? >.< I need more room :(

    Sub's usually have a pretty big magnet in em, that'd be what I would worry bout. Mine is under the desk, opposite the case and monitor, pretty much by it's lonesome.

    sound vibrations can be "felt" by you AND by your computer so if your going to leave it there this is what you need to do, get a piece of styrofoam board like they use building houses and cut a piece big enough to cover the side of your computer case then put it between the sub and the case. it will block the sound from pounding on the case. next put some soft rubber under your computer cases feet to block the vibrations coming from the desk.
    (do the rubber under the feet even if you put it under the desk, if you feel it vibrating)
    thats it, your fine to leave it like it is and rock on. :rockout:

    I agree, on most sound systems every speaker is magnetically shielded, EXCEPT the sub, so they do not affect other electrical equipment, (have you ever seen what a strong magnet can do to a crt tv? :eek:), do you have the manual, maybe that can tell you if it is shielded or not, if not get it as far from your PC as cables allow!

    Hope it helps.

    speaking of monitors you better put it under the desk so that magnet doesnt screw up your monitor.

    Well as long as files don't start "magically" disappearing from your HDD you're fine...
