    should i be worried?
    ok. i recently got a used stereo receiver as i got tired of the altec lansing speakers i had sounding like dooky.

    to i hooked the receiver to my imac with one of these and i took some of the surround speakers we had and hooked them up to the receiver. well... they still sounded like poop.

    then i remembered i had a spare set of 3-way 4x10 car speakers i wasnt using so i hooked those up. they sound AMAZING!!

    but i just have them running open air like 3" from my imac.

    Should i be worried about anything happening?

    I'd be more worried about damaging my hearing than the iMac.... Other than not looking very good, they should be OK. Your iMac will survive.

    No...The car speakers are like the ones in Real know made out of wood, big and can blast the neigborhood. Like the ones from the 70's.
