Basically as the question states... The drives are spinning with delicate pieces so I assume large bass could theoretically?

Not really. Most drives are rated above the bass frequency for vibrations. Is it possible yes is it likely no.

The Korg D888 hard drive audio recorder was reputed to suffer drive errors if used near to rock band bass cabinets. But errors don't necessary equate to damage as such.

If we're talking domestic audio, if you were listening at levels which would imperil your hard drives, I'd be rather more concerned about your hearing...

Yahoo! thinks so... http://voices.yahoo.com/how-vibration-damages-hard-drives-4704501.html but you could probably find a thread that says the opposite, too. IMO vibration can't be good for them.

sounds like there advice is to just keep drives as isolated as possible. I.E. platforms or AV racks
