Default Speaker system shakin up the whole dorm!

Spherex 5.1 Surround system is shaking up the whole dorm room.

The bass is just soooo responsive, too loud too. Is this gonna affect my computer or harddrive at all while its spinning and the desk is kinda shaking cuz of the bass?

Will it crash my hard drive or something?

The simple truth: NO.

Your speaker system is too small to affect any of your system components. Also, the subwoofer enclosure should he magnetically shielded.

You can feel my floor vibrating from the volume of mine, and my computer is right next to the sub, maybe 2 inches away, and it's fine.

Ive had Logitech x530's (5.1) for about 9months now, coupled with my X-fi xtreme soundcard it sounds great, really punchy bass aswell, you cant really judge it from hooking it up to a pc with onboard sound though, you need a good sound card to get the best from it.

Id buy my speakers agian tomorrow if they broke

Is it just me or does it sound WAY WAY WAY better once you turn on CMSS-3D and pick "stereo surround"? for me its much louder, and the sub is like twice as punchy/bassy, its great
