    I wouldn't suggest mounting them directly next to each other. The magnets on high power subs are pretty strong and the vibrations will obviously be most intense closest to the sub.

    I have my computer about 3-4 feet from my sub-box. So far I have had no issues, but I only have 600 watts RMS going to one 12". I rarely keep my volume even close to max and I especially doubt that you do as well. If you seperate them and keep the volume reasonable most of the time, I don't see there being an issue.

    That sucks...my whole trunk is pretty much my sub box...i think that i have about a little over a foot of space between my subs and the end of the trunk...subs are facing away from the back seats to utilize trunk air space...there are two pockets on the sides of the sub box also...but that would be too close to the magnets as well....hmmm....the problem is that i can't mount under either front seats because BMW seats have no room underneath for a pc (cant even stick my hand under there)...has anybody else had this issue? Has anybody mounted their pc close to their subs?

    I just think you'd really be beating on that harddrive with the vibrations... What if you took some dynomat and put it around the pc case to dapen some of those heavy vibrations ?
    Is 2 years long enough?

    Is that how long your setup's been rolling? How far apart are your subs from the computer?

    Definitely long enough....but how much bass are you pushing, and (like above) how far are they from your comp? Any pics?

    I haven't got my system metered, so I dont exactly how many db's I'm getting, but it's louder than setups I've heard with w7's and another setup that had two 15" Orions...


    I'd say 4 inches?

    you may have a little luck on your side too.... delicate printed circuit boards & micro solders don't like huge vibrational forces, but then again it will work until it fails... if it never fails then that's great, but I would think your increasing the likelyhood quite a bit at least......

    The rough ride of my Firebird's sport suspension is harder on the computer than the subs are.

    I wouldn't bolt the computer on the actual subwoofer box because the box flexes, flexing the motherboard with it.
