    Hi, I'm moving my home theater and the new front projector requires me to place my equipment rack where my rear surround speaker will be. The easiest thing for me to do is place my medium-large bookshelf surround right speaker on top of the equipment rack. My question is this: will the speaker interfere with the equipment on the rack, particularly the laserdisc and dvd players while they are running? If so, my only option is to build a really tall speaker stand or to mount it on the wall behind the rack somehow. I'd love to place it on top of the rack, but would hate for the speaker to mess up the discs spinning. Do you think this would happen? Could I somehow use isolaters w/ the speaker and disc players to minimize or negate this effect? Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    Since most LD and DVD transports are plastic, I doubt the speaker will be a problem. What you might do is put a sheet of cold rolled steel on the top of the rack to prevent the magnetic field from getting through.

    one more question: if I place some rubber feet below the speaker and vibrapods under the dvd and ld players, do you think it would negate any ill-effects? Thanks
