    Subwoofer vibrations?

    I'm planning on putting two 12" 900 watt subs right next to my car pc in the trunk. I'm using a 2.5" laptop hard drive. What do you guys think the effects would be, or what measures I might have to take to protect the drive?

    Depends on how close your subs are to the hdd.. ensure that it isn't too close because remember the hdd writes data magnetically to its platters.... subs depending on the size have huge magnets........ so put it together and you have a mess... but I have my carpc about 1 feet from my sub and I haven't had any problems w/ it, even when the subs are hitting hard.... but just be careful how close you get!!
    New CarPC on the way again I think. I miss my old one!!!
