Can my PC take vibration from subwoofer

Gorge
 Share

 I have a PC that I custom built. I do everything from Run around in my house,  to lift weights, to blast music with a big subwoofer.  I have a crappy metal desk that I made that can transfer  vibrations well.  And my house is crappy and it rattles. Can all of this vibration damage my PC? 

My CPU cooler is 970g and My motherboard is cheap. My graphics card weighs 4 pounds

I mean unless you're blasting Fine China or Stir Fry to the point where your subwoofer is about explode, I think you'll be fine.

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

I think you'll be fine. There should be a volume where you stop turning it up for your ears sake.

Your PC cannot lift weights. 

 I would hope not, I mean a bench a lot and lift a lot. When I am hyped I will sometimes drop the weights not intentionally. And it does right on my desk a bit and floor can of harm anything?

Not that I care but didn't you ask this already lol

 

If your PC is vibrating on the metal, and you wish for this to stop - put something like felt cut outs under the feet of your case - problem solved.  Let the felt dampen your vibrations, and worries

 Wow that sentence was so beautifully crafted.  I think I’m going to use velvet to dampen my worries optimally thank you Much!

Depends on what big woofer means. I have several 60# woofers. One of them in my pc room would cause a lot of issue even with the pc on a desk. 

 

But a standard home use woofer shouldn’t be a big deal. Just don’t put the pc on the enclosure.

My concern more was the power needed and weight. Didn't work out in my cars so wired one up in the house.
