    I have a set of "Kones" main speakers I picked up at the Chicago HiFi Show a few years back. They seem to be pretty good speakers but they are not shielded. Is there anyway to shield these speakers. What would I need...?

    Thanks for any Info..... Travis[​IMG]

    You really can't do anything about it that would be reliable. So long as they're about 2 feet away from your display, you're fine. The reason being is that the magnetic field of the speakers at that distance is approximately the same strength as the Earth's gravitational field.

    Chu, you mean magnetic field, don't you?

    Indeed I did. Thank's for pointing it out Jack. The earth's magnetic field is somewhere on the order of 0.4 gauss or so and at about 2 feet distance, the magnetic field of your speaker will be in that vicinity or less.
