Placing equipment on top of a subwoofer


Active Member
Is it safe to put equipment, a Playstation 3, on top of a subwoofer? I've heard it's not wise to do so because of magnets etc. Just wondered what your thoughts were.

Hmm i have my center speaker on top of my sub woofer , maybee this should not be done , and will effect perfomance

Surely, rather than worrying about magnets, by the time you've wound the sound up a little then vibration is the biggest problem, or am I just going deaf?

I've had my PS3 sitting on the Sub since day one, never had any issues with that.

My sub is a Canton one :D

Personally I wouldn't do it if possible. Domestic electronics aren't designed to cope with vibrations
