Default weight and transmission

I've got a 05 Honda accord lx coupe 2.4L 4cyl. And when I put my system in the trunk, ill probably have 500 Ibs and possibly a lot more. How would this weight effect my car? Would I end up screwing up my transmission? And is there any solution to help to prevent problems besides taking the system out of my car? I've found custom coilovers that will handle the weight in the back.

And this car is my daily driver. Do a lot of you uys do the same with there vehicles?

It won't hurt the transmission, it will however wear the camber out on ur back tires and become costly as u go thru tires

Its not going to hurt anything, just imagine the weight if you had a full car load of people all of the time, also if you really want to be sure, the manufacture sticker on the drivers side door area should have a total weight limit

I think the limit is 875. But I usually have one or two passengers with me
