Wouldn't the effect of vibrations from multiple drives depend
greatly on the mechanical properties of the bay enclosure and
the chassis itself?


 For example, I have a 16 bay enclosure that's
built like a tank (I know because I dropped it once). I would
think that the vibration of one drive would barely be noticed
by others.

...stiffer and stronger might actually transmit vibration better and be worse!
