    Hey guys, got these speakers yesterday. and im just telling you that.

    KEEP COKE CANS AWAY FROM THE BASS HOLE


    I had one on top of my bin, which is level with my sub hole. and it sucked one IN THE FCKIN SUB :eek::eek::eek::eek:


    but its ok, it dident hit the coil or anything, just in the box. and i got it out.


    but yea, WATCH OUT.

    I once watched as my old Phillips stereo sucked in about 17 tissues, one at a time :p

    I'm not exactly sure what you're implying :Paranoid:

    There was a box of tissues in front of the port of the right speaker. Everytime there was a big bass hit (every 3 seconds or so in the song) the air would sort of vacuum a tissue inside the port. i just stood there laughing at it until i realised i'd have to get them all out :tired:

    Song was "Dr. Dre - What's The Difference" for anyone wishing to replicate this "Mythbusters" style.

    On a side note, my cousins kitten sometimes climbs inside their HT Sub through the 3-4 inch port on the front. Hasn't been in there with it turned on luckily :p

    just a thought ... how far should the sub sit from the PC ? mine is next to the case, like 15cms .... is there something magnetic inside the sub that can have damaging effects on the the components inside my PC ?

    heh.....I couldn't have thought the subs to have been strong enough, in terms of sucking/blowing power, to have done this.....well until I say that youtube video linked above. I have mine sitting next to the side of the desk, and the hole is covered which probably isn't a good thing for it...

    Do you mean completely blocked? or just with a wall close to it? Because if anything you might be getting benefits from "cabin" gain or something :weirdo:

    I'm pretty sure there was a warning on my sub when I opened the package that it should not be placed within 2 feet of your case or a magnetic field.

    Oh just having the blowhole right next to the side of the next. Yep, completely blocked. Wasn't sure if I was doing any damage by not allowing it to breathe properly......?

    Nah logitech speakers are all properly shielded, so no worries of anything bad happening. hell i even rest some of my HDDs on it.

    To get close to doing damage, the port (blowhole) would have to be sealed.

    Even if you did seal it, all you are likely to acheive is making the sub not being able to work so well.
    As that would create a lot of back pressure with nowhere for the air to escape, and restrict the movement of the speaker diaphram.

    This came with the Z-5500's I purchased today:

    Ok, so won't be a problem. I've moved the new speakers out a bit from the side of the desk now anyways.

    A think people are exaggerating a little here lol. I have the Z-5500D's, and the sub does move a lot of air, but some things here seem a little far fetched :p
