    I have limited space in my living room, and right now my SVS dual 20-39CS+'s are on the left side of the room and next to my Klipsch reference 3 II front speaker. They about 2 feet from my Hitachi 53" HDTV. The Klipsch are shielded, but could they still be too close?

    What would i notice the TV doing if they were causing problems?

    Well, judging by this photo, my sub is pretty darn close to the RPTV, and I haven't really come across anything too out of the ordinary w/r/t my RPTV.

    I wouldn't be concerned if they are sheilded. I have unsheilded speakers about 2 feet away and I haven't had any problems.

    I've had problems with my subwoofers changing the convergence settings on my RPTV. In my case, this was caused by floor vibrations. If this happens to you then you may have to move the subs further away...

    The problem I have (and STILL have) is that my 20-39PC causes the protective plexi-glass screen on my Elite PRO710 to vibrate. And it drives me CRAZY!

    that is the same exact problem I have with my tempest sonotube. My 53" Hitachi vibrates and I don't knw if it is damaging it or not..should I move the sub Behind me? Will it destroy my TV?
