Is it advised to get a sub that is sheilded in case it is to sit close or next to a TV?

I am considering a Wega and would like to know if I should get a sub shielded which incidentally is looking to be a RAVA.

If you were going to sit the sub right next to the TV that might be an issue. If it's going to be a foot or so away it probably won't matter. BTW, the Rava is not shielded.

thanks.

great, i just hope the sub doesn't sound best next to the set or something. My room is rectangular shaped so i only have so much room the way its laid out.

If manfactures made TVs that were shielded then the speakers wouldn't have to be. It's a conspiracy I tell you!

jk

A lot of subs sound fine near a front corner. Rarely do I see a sub right next the TV (where the mains usually are). That is probably why they don't make that many subs shielded like they do center channels.

I am not sure you can "Sheild" a TV, can you? I guess it would be cool if you could but probably more expensive.
