My tank is 5 feet from my sub and I have not noticed any problems. I did epoxy my rocks together just to be safe since my sub has been known to knock pictures off the wall.

Funny stream here

Just to offer my experiences,

First off - I think this is a common duo (folks who like sw aquariums seem to be audiophiles as well) of course this is only my personal observation - no facts on this.

I have a 200W/channel system - good old stereo, McIntosh and SAE, and some Bob Carver stuff. I'm not sure why, but my fish don't seem to appear disturbed by it. I don't notice any response.

I just want to add that water carries sound something like 10 or more times faster than air.
Not sure but I don't think that's really what you meant. I think what you meant is water is a better conductor of sound, i.e. sounds power will be transmitted further and with less loss in water then in air - perhaps by as much as 10 times better. The speed of sound is fixed (something like 600+ mph).

However, I am inclined to agree with Jackdp - I still can't imagine that they would like this. So I'm a little confused as what seems to make sense, seems to contridict what appears to be. Maybe SW fish just like good jazz - not sure what's up here.

I work for a sound and lighting company, maybe if I get the chance I will bring home some test equipment and mics and try to measure the spl outside the tank vs. inside the tank. It is true that water is a better conductor of sound than air, but that is for sounds that have originated in the water. <Hypothesis> While true that water is a better conductor of sounds originating in the water, a body ofwater may actually act to insulate those within it from the sounds outside.

Think of when your are in a swimming pool, you can hear a watch beep, or a person scream next to you quite well, but you can't hear a person on the deck much at all. Just thinking out loud right now...

Hi Jackdp,

Do it man - I'd certainly be interested - this is a unique line of questioning and investigation. Not even sure if the fish are so sensitive to sound. It seems they're not, because even if I drop something big in the room they don't even seem distracted, but is I make one small but quick and silent move they all shot in different directions.

Anyway - neat stuff - I haven't seen any lit on this.

Tom

Right on!!

I think that this is going to be a good topic to study. I would like to know the results of this test. It would beinteresting to know what the fish are going through when we are enjoying another great love and hobby.

Thanks and hope to see some test results.

I'm not quite sure why you have a Siamese Algae Eater hooked up to your receiver, but if it improves the sound let me know.
