    I meant to confirm w/ SVS before i ordered, but im an eager beaver.
    I have 33" directly to the right of my TV available to place my 25-31PCi.
    This means that the sub will be about 16" from the TV.
    (diagram)
    Is this enough distance to avoid any video distortion on the TV?
    Also, the SVS driver is on the bottom of the cylinder, the TV is on a stand, so i think i should be alright.
    Just checkin so i don't worry.

    Here is a pick of my roommates room with a DIY Dayton 12" in it (should throw a very similar magnetic field to the SVS). The sub is 39" tall and 18" in dia. No interference with the TV where it is.

    No guarentee's from me, but take that for what it is worth.

    All that matters is that the driver's magnet is not close. You will know right away if it is because the screen will change color and distort, but it sounds like it will be OK.

    Is there any danger of a sub that close banging the internals of the TV, knocking it out of alignment or something else?

    You're sick man :p)


    That's his electric razer. You know, the self cleaning Bruan one. The razer just isn't in the cleaning thing that you are talking about.

    Ok, c'mon, all you Kevin Smith fans were thinking the same thing I was....admit it! (Although my GF knew immediately what it was, as she was glad to point out)
