so i got z5500 sound system not too long ago... after putting everything together under my desk eerything worked like a charm, very good system... here's my issue... in few days my monitor (gateway 21 inch) started to have these red horizontal lines going on my screen, I didn't know what was up at first... tryed everything possible from formating to switching video card and changing cables from dvi to vga... anyways, to make it shorter, I turned of and disconnected z5500 sound system, and my screen went back to normal.... those red lines are gone... so my question is WHY did z5500 cause it ? (it does say in the manual to keep it 60cm away from computer due to powerful sub, i kept it way more then 60cm away from computer and monitor)... anyone experienced same thing ? whats the solution ? can I put something around it or something ? :confused:

i moved it FAR away today from my screen, but i want to keep it under my desk hmm

To my knowledge there's not a lot you can do except move the sub away from the monitor. I personally had a notice sellotaped to my sub stating the sub kicked such a big magnetic signal it can damage your TV/monitor. mine is about a meter away from my LCD and two meters away from my CRT monitor with no interference. hope i help. :thumbsup:

Apparently after a bit of googling a metal panel of some sort can reflect the magnetic signal. :lesson:
