I got the iMac 27" and I do not want to take the protective seal off the screen. However I noticed that the speakers on the bottom of the screen are sealed as well. The sound quality is still good but since I am in love with this iMac so much, I have been starting to feel paranoid that something bad could happen if i continue to play music with the speakers still sealed. I do play fairly loud music occasionally. I know most people might think its okay like I first thought.. but lately I have been randomly thinking about sound waves bouncing off the seal and going back into the speaker cavity, subsequently deteriorating the hardware inside. I was hoping I could get some insight from people with similar experiences or some knowledge in physics. 

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
