    So yeah. I was sitting at my desk and I decided to turn my music way up. The subwoofer sounded a little weird so I went down to it to have a closer look. I happened to have a Kleenex in my hand (a clean one mind you:cool:) and so I thought I would be cool and put it in the woofer and see the air push it out....

    But it decided to suck it in instead... Now I have a Kleenex in my sub! I've always wanted one.
    I don't know how I'm going to get it out or if I'm going to even try. I can't see it at all when I look into it and it doesn't change the sound. So I guess it's all good.

    Moral of the story? Never stick a Kleenex next to your subwoofer, it might get hungry and eat it.

    From the title alone, anyone else thought the OP had a (possibly used) tissue in their sandwich? Ew.

    Yes, I was expecting another finger-in-Wendy's-chili type story.

    Well as long as the tissue doesn't harm it, I guess it doesn't matter! And now you have a cool icebreaker for anyone in your room. ;)

    Yeah, like "I was surfing the web with a kleenex in my hand and somehow it got jerked into the subwoofer..." :D

    I was totally thinking the same thing! What would be worse though, a finger in your chili or a snotty-a$$ tissue in your footlong?!?!?!?

    Finger in a chili, easily.

    But assuming that a sub costs more than a bowl of chili and I was far away from the place where I bought it, I guess I'd rather be out of the chili. (Plus I dislike chili.)

    Imagine if the tissue was dirty and went into the subwoofer... If you maxed-out the volume mucous would have splattered everywhere!:eek::D:D:p

    That's what I thought. I even had a clever response to it too.

    I was thinking the same thing. I just had to click on this thread. I'm disappointed now.

    Yep. And it brought back a horrible memory of when I found a bandage in a loaf of bread. Thank you OP. :mad:

    As for the woofer, the tissue shouldn't cause any permanent physical damage.
