    Vibration issue?

    ok so here is my dilemma! I have not put the pc in the car yet but looking at my setup i am getting worried about how it will act or if it will get destroyed by the audio system in my car in my car. First let me tell you the specs that i am working with.
    first the PC set up
    DoubleSight DS-90UT
    GigaByte H61N-USB3
    Corsair XMS3 16GB DDR3 1333
    Intel Core i3 2120t
    M4 ATX PSU
    Crucial m4 256GB SSD
    water cooled and the radiator will sit outside of the car!

    now for the car
    2002 Ford Focus SVT ZX5
    2 sets Focal 165 A1 SG (front and rear doors)
    4 Sundown Audio SA-8 v.2
    1 Sundown Audio SAX-100.4D
    1 Sundown Audio SAZ-2500D

    My car is very very very loud and i am concerned that it will destroy all that i have been working on with this setup. Oh and also the only place to mount the PC where i can put the radiator on the outside is in my spare tire well RIGHT underneath the SUBS.
    If you have any input please let me know. Thank You.

    Most stuff can handle the vibration. One thought is make sure that radiator doesn't get salt on it.

    Oh and having gone to school for audio. Please be gentle on your ears. They will not heal and you will be deaf. Bass is equally bad for them if not worse because you don't feel the same pain as high frequencies as it is doing damage. If it is loud enough to damage a pc, it is loud enough to do serious damage to your tiny ear pieces.

    I know. I am already deaf in my right ear. I install car audio for a living.Thank you for your concern though i really do appreciate it you do not get people like you on forums most of the time.Thats cool man.

    i am concerned about the processor breaking loose or solder breaking.Im not 100% sure you know exactly how loud this car is. On the low side with bass at -5 it hit 148.1db and mid side with bass at 0 it hit 154.3db. I will not turn it up louder then that.
