    Just a quick question, Would it be a problem putting my G5 next to the KRK sub??? I did a search for it, and came up empty.

    the only thing i could think of being an issue is the magnets in the sub so close to a hard drive, but i dont think that should be a problem.

    You need to find out if the sub is magnetically shielded. If it isn't, don't put it anywhere near your computer.

    This basically.

    Even if it is over a long period of time the vibrations will cause damage I reckon. I had a petrol scooter and it vibrated so much that the screws had to be tightened after every use. A similar thing could happen with your computer.

    the vibrations could potentially cause the hard drive arm to make contact with the platter which holds the data - this would instantly kill the hard drive and all your data. magnet is unlikey to be strong enough to wipe the data, unless we're talking about an 18inch driver or something, maybe...anyways yes, vibrations culd be an issue

    your sub can go pretty much anywhere in your room, sub is not directional in the same way as higher freqz, you can put it behind you even - assuming you are only using it for sub freqz that is, if u are going much above 90hz with it then direction becomes more important and potentially confusing
