He everybody,

Could anybody tell me if there is any danger of placing the speakers in close proximity to air conditioner
(which is - 2 feet from it right in the way of airflow )? Unfortunately I don’t have too many options of speaker placement, so if anybody tells me “it’s bad” (which I suspect it is) I guess I’ll have to opt for bookshelf-sized speakers mounted on the wall.

Thanks a lot,
Dmitry.

I'll say it can't be good - at the very least for the veneer. I assume you mean a window type AC unit?

It's in-wall mounted, but I guess it the same as a window-type...

Yeah, the apartment special...

Off hand, the actual air movement might play havoc with the air movement in the cabinet (ie: if the airflow is pushing directly into the gorilla port), the cold air won't do the veneer glue any favours and probably the biggest issue I'd have, if you cool the speakers on a humid day, water vapour will condense on and in them - unfortunately speakers don't grow when you water them.

i really dont have any expertise knowledge, but i would have to agree with bren. the air blowing directly from the vents can be anywhere from 45F to 55F degrees, and would make for extreme temp changes up and down the tower. now, i dont think that will effect the speakers themselves, but it could have adverse effects on the structure of the box and the veneer. the possibilities of it warping and pulling greatly increase.

this is all speculation on my part.. i would write an email or call the 1-800# for axion, and get their opinion.

Thanks for ruining my day guys, I appreciate it :-) .
Condensation was my first concern too… Well – bookshelf ones then, right?

Well, as you can see, I take the chance. Somtimes there just ain't no option. However, I must say that the AC is run a total of about 48 hours in an entire summer. I'm in Cleveland.
