there not protected if they make the tv go a funny colour.. The only problem with putting the pc ontop of a sub or next to a speaker, is you might loose data from the hdd, cos you loose data if you put a floppy disk next to a speaker... Other then that, the pc will be fine :D

It might be fine but if I where you I would backup your stuff first.

Don't do it. Moved my dad's PC around once downstairs, put it down next to the speaker while I was doing something on his desk, when I set it back up the next day the HDD was shafted.
Lost most of his stuff. Oops :eek:

get something shielded.

I have some modaunt shorts. were 150quid maybe 4-5 years ago. really nice small bookshelf speakers and perfect in my tiny room.
those and a NAD amp (second hand beauty) sounds pretty good for a sub 500quid system.

used to power a sub with the NAD and a surround DTS sherwood amp, but my room is too small! :)

your speakers wont destroy your hdd, how would that happen exactly?

I had my pc right next to an unshielded speaker for a years and it was fine.
I wouldn't put a pc on top of a sub though, it might get shaken to bits.
