    So I put my printer with my subwoofer on the same table. You can feel vibrations on the printer itself when the subwoofer is working (i.e. by touching the surface of the printer).

    What i'm trying to ask is, if prolonged, will this affect the printer? (alignment of the print head, etc.)

    Thanks.

    Btw using harman/kardon soundsticks II

    Definitely. If the vibrations are severe enough that you would consider possible implications, then there will probably be implications. If it's not too much trouble, move it. Besides, no risk pressing your luck.

    I won't say it's severe, I don't turn on the speaker quite loudly, the vibrations are there but not that severe. Because there are rubber feet on the printer, most of the vibration that is felt on the table is removed. I'll consider finding alternative places to put the subwoofer, thanks. I might decide to put it under my desk for a better effect. I'll leave the satellite speakers, they don't really cause much vibrations.

    Def move it, i had my subwoofer next to my comp and the cd drive became misaligned because of the vibrations, so you should move it

    I'm very tempted to leave it where it is :( My room is basically 15 ft by 15 ft. If I put it under my desk, I might kick it accidentally. I have literally no corners in my room left (I have a sofa that fills 1/3 of the room).

    Have you considered some sort of vibration dampening cushion? If you're pressed for space this seems like it would be worth a shot. And since you said you don't turn your speakers up loudly I'd think that a bit of cushioning would take care of most vibrations.
