    What would be a safe distance from a tv for a non-shielded subwoofer??
    Fairly simple question, I hope...
    My tv is just a standard 27 incher, nothing special.
    The sub I was wondering about is the JBL PB12

    i'm guessing here, but since regular non-shielded speakers need to be at least 2-3 feet away...with a sub and it's bigger magnet, i would guess at least 4-5 feet.
    personally, i'd go at least 5 feet. better safe then sorry.
