    Shuttle FV24.. or any other Carputer + Subwoofer = ??? :)

    Hi

    Im planning of putting my Shuttle FV25 computer in the trunk of my car. The only thing bothering me about this is, the two 10" woofer's i have back there

    has anyone succesfully put a carputer next to a subwoofer? .. im thinking mostly about the harddrive.. it would most likely take a nasty beatin' .. *hehe*

    anyway...

    any insights?

    best regards,

    I have 2 10" and a FV24 in the trunk, No problems. I'm not a super 1000W basshead, though.

    The computer is about a foot from the box, about 2 feet from the actual speaker magent.

    Just for perspective, i realize that the magenets in a hd are fixed, and not firing like they are in a subwoofer, but the read heads are possitioned by some extreeemely strong (for their size) magnets in the corner of the casing. I could be wrong, but unless you put the coil of you subwoofer on your hd, it should be ok.

    i was thinking more in the way of how the resonance affect the HDD. would`nt maybe... 100Hz - 250Hz for an example make the heads in the HDD to vibrate? ...

    I would think the resonance from the subs, while it would be more constant than average driving, wouldn't be anything more than normal driving would throw at it.

    With the subs that are in my car (2x10 + 1x12) I am worried as well. They pack quite the back massage when running Has anyone had any BAD experiences with them and a car computer?
