    My subwoofer is currently sitting directly above a heating duct for the forced hot air heating system in my house. Unfortunately due to the layout of the room, there is no way i can move it anywhere else. is the heat bad for the sub... is there anything i can do to protect it if it is?

    Is it a powered sub? I'd just keep an eye out to make sure the amp(if it is powered)wasn't overheating at all. I don't see any major issues though...

    Thanks for the reply Tom, It is a powered sub (B&W ASW 1000). Ok, so the heat's not bad for the speaker in the sub, just make sure the amp doesn't overheat... i can do that. Thanks again [​IMG]

    Well, you don't want hot dry air constantly blowing across the driver either [​IMG]
    It might be a good idea to talk to BW about it and see what they think concerning stuff like the surrounds on the driver. There's probably little chance of anything worth worrying about, but they would know for sure.
