    Question - Those with sound systems (subs) and computers....

    As I plan for my car-puter (lol say that 10x) I can't help but wonder, how my bass will affect the computer. With two Kicker L5's, and 1000 watts, surely this is enough to disrupt the operation of the computer... right?

    any way around this, such a secure mounting places, mounting away from the system...? Or just -don't- bass loud while using the computer? (though that would be just the opposite of what I'm trying to accomplish....?)

    oh - in a VW jetta IV.

    thanks!

    I have a pair of JL 13w7s. Really big magnets, ya know. In my last ride, any magnetic material I would have in the car for any period of time would get erased! Floppy disks and hard drives included. My laptop, however, did not. With my suburban I figure everything computer related can be mounted far enough away from the speakers, but I'm still thinking about some lead shielding in the box...

    i dont think hes asking about the magnet, hes asking about the bass disrupiting the spin of the harddrive and making the pc useless if the bass hits too hard. sorta like when your driving down the street and you hit a pot hole, would a cd skip in your deck....

    i have 2 kicker L7's with a KX1200.1 and im wondering the same thing

    lol, oh yeah. Mine disrupts everything in its path. As long as the computer isnt mounted solid to the car, the transmission of bass should vibrate everything equally in the computer, and you wont have a problem. You want to rubber mount any sensitive equipment anyways. MP3s suck for bass anyways, its never as powerful as an uncompressed recording.

    that is purely dependent on the settings and quality of the encoder

    Yeah no doubt.
    I have 1 12" Kicker in my Truck and all MP3s I play out of my Jukebox POUND.

    As for Vibration, The case Im bulding for my carputer is going to be lined with a Dynamat Knock-Off, so I think that will help.
