    Question Sub Distance

    How far should my mp3 player be from my subs, im planning on having 2 12 inch subs but i also want to put my mp3 player in the spare tire well...
    If i make a REALLLLLY cushy enclosure around the HDD do you think it will be ok ? or will the vibration be too much ?

    (The setup is in a 1990 Honda Civic HB)

    You cant solve this problem. You comp is gonna get hit no matter where you put it when you crank the stereo. Every part of my truck vibrates when I "bump". I've gone through 2 HD's, but I used to do some serious bumping. Just put it in the most convient spot...back up your songs on a second hd (they are getting cheaper and cheaper). If the HD cuts, put the otehr one in and move the comp. Dont spend much on a new hd. Most new ones have pretty good tech as far as shock protection and whatnot. Any cheap WD 5400 HD will suite mp3 storage needs.
    I'm a ghost...email me if you have any questions on my old setup

    FYI i have 2 12 inch kicker compvrs, with my custom plexiglass case sitting directly behind my box and have had absolutley no probs. I found that was the least vibrating place. Hope this helps!! [img]null[/img] [img]www.tvdance.com/bush-gore/22anew[/img]
