Unhappy Subwoofer shatter my desk??

Im getting a 10" active 150w sub to compliment my new system. I was also going to get a new glass desk. It's a very powerful sub. Does anyone think it might shatter my new desk???

How thin is the glass? Is the base going to be up all the way? And are you going to be doing with the base.. as in sounds... like games, music, etc...

whoa... that's pretty thin. A 150W base... at 75% has a risk. It'll shake, I think. Better off with wood. I have wood and 80W sub and it doesn't do a thing...

Depends how thick the glass is... If it's thin like window glass, then yes, it could shatter. If it's like 1/2" or thicker, then it should be fine.
