Hi guys, i run a Pioneer VSX922 based 5.1 system with which i am astounded with. The question i hope you can help me with is, can anyone tell me if my two front speakers, Rogers LS1's are magnetically shielded? I know they may be a little long in the tooth but they still sound wonderful & i don't wish to replace them. With today's flat panel Tv's why the need for magnetic shielding i here someone say, the reason i ask is, my gaming, HTPC is very close to one of the said speakers (within 4-5 inches). I like a lot of people, now have my life & then some, all on my PC. The close proximity of the PC & speakers have just given me cause for concern.
I cant seam to find any info on my LS1's anywhere online.
(i bought the speakers from a friend when he upgraded & he had lost the spec sheet)

AFAIK, no they are not.

Your HTPC should not be affected, even less at the distance you've identified. But I cannot guarantee the construction of your unidentified PC. (If it's a Dell or HP or Lenovo, or similar, it will necessarily be fine).

Can we assume that 4 to 5 inches is the horizontal distance between the two? What is the diagonal distance between the nearest magnet and the computer's hard drive?

Keep in mind that your computer's cabinet (assuming it is metal) is a shield, and the computer's hard driver is also additionally shielded.

The shielding on most speakers is actually just a sheet metal can that is placed over the magnet.

Thanks for the reply's, my PC i built myself & it is housed in a NZXT H440 case, & yes the 4 to 5 inches refered to the horizontal distance. The diagonal distance was about 6 to 7 inches. I have since been able to gain a little more distance horizontal is now about 13 inches & the diagonal to the hard drive is about 17 inches. I have been running this like so for about a week now & all has been fine so far. Again thanks for your reply's.

Are you measuring case-to-case or magnet edge to hard drive case. That's the distance that matter.

That said, ti sound like you've got it under control.
