    Okay, I think this question is a bit ridiculous but that quiet nagging voice in the back of my head won't go away so I'm going to ask anyway.

    Due to the location of the subwoofer speaker in the 2010 15" MacBook Pro, is it possible that high levels of bass could transfer their vibrations to the hard drive and affect the health of it in any way? Here's what I'm talking about at step 11 on ifixit:

    It's under the DVD drive, like 3 inches away from the hard drive. (well, nevermind it's right next to it)

    The DVD drive surely makes much stronger vibrations than the hard drive.

    Neither are things you need to worry about.
