    I have a couple of old speakers and just got a large PTV. My speakers are now next to the TV since my room is small. How can I shield these nice old speakers so that they would not affect my PTV? Also would a non shielded speaker damage PTV? Thanks, John

    I had the same question a long time ago when I first got into this. A few products were mentioned (that I can't begin to remember). What I do remember is that it was expensive and definitly not worth the effort.

    Thanks for the infor, I guess it's not worth the trouble. Can someone tell me if none shielded speakers would cause damage to the PTV tube?

    Yes, a non-sheilded speaker will cause damage. I used a non-sheilded speaker for my center channel for a month and a multi-colored splotch started to develop on the screen. When I would move the speaker around, it would affect the splotch - so I knew it was the speaker causing it. When I got rid of that speaker and replaced it with a real center channel, the splotch remained. I think that problem can be fixed - but why get it to begin with.
