    Hi,

    Finally going to have a tv setup with a refurb project and have opted for wet under floor heating under porcelain tiles, one end of the room is going to have sub woofer, two floor standing speakers and a large cabinet with various boxes, the tv is going on the wall above it. Is there any harm in running the under floor heating under that lot or would it be advisable to come off the wall 50cm (depth of cabinet is 50cm - width 175cm) for any reason - plumber said they normally come off about 25cm, guess just worried would heat cabinet up (has very small feet so not directly on floor), the electronics in it and the speakers/sub ?

    Many thanks,

    Lawrence

    No harm whatsoever,

    Providing they aren't directly on the floor (they aren't as you've stated as such and floor standing speaker and sub usually come with spikes underneath)

    The airflow around it will be enough to stop it from overheating.

    Underfloor heating is also low temperature, typically 23-32 degrees to touch (the actual water temp will be between 35 and 65 degrees) otherwise it would be uncomfortable to walk on.
