Would mounting a TV inside a piano damage the TV? Answered
We have an upright piano, and we don't have a good place to put our flatscreen. My thought is to put the flatscreen inside the piano. I have measured for clearance and it fits quite neatly. My only concern is if the vibrations from the piano will somehow damage the TV's electronics.
On the one hand, the TV has speakers and generates a dynamic range of sound and volume and does just fine. The TV can get louder than we ever play the piano.
On the other hand, the piano sounds are fuller and maybe vibrate more than the speakers in the TV do.
The vertical board behind and under the keyboard has a latch that is opened so that the board pivots down and forward. The TV would go inside the space behind this board. It would make the TV close to the ground, but it would be more convenient than the current location.
The space in the piano has a depth of about 6 inches. I would install a piece of 3/4 inch ply across the back to mount the TV to. It would be right in front and possibly touching the sound board and the bass bridge. The TV is 4.5 inches deep at the deepest point.
I am sure that the construction is feasible and well within my abilities. I am unsure of any danger to the TV from such a setup. Any insights, references or suggestions are well appreciated.
