    Default Are comp lcd monitors safe around non shielded speakers?

    Just a quick question that I couldn't find the answer to with a search... Are LCD computer monitors safe sitting in the middle of a pair of speakers that are not magnetically shielded? Thanks.

    btw the speakers will be quite close to the monitor.

    I've been wondering the same thing, since I got my LCD . As far as I know, magnetism wouldn't effect the picture, but there might be some memory chips in the monitor that could be screwed up by it?
    Ludicrous gibs!

    Try : avsforums.com for some answers.

    After many searches, and talking to the "experts", I flat out could not get a straight answer on the subject. Some people report issues while others do not.

    For what its worth, I could use some LSi-7's next to my LCD without any issues at all.. these speakers turned my regular CRT all shades of green and purple when placed a foot from the monitor.

    Take that for whatever you think its worth..

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I did some more searching and here is what I found...
    (copy and pasted)

    Q:As no one on another forum seems to be able to answer this (or is it too obvious?).
    Is there any danger to an LCD monitor of putting unshielded speakers near it?

    I know this is a no-no with CRTs but assume LCDs are not worried about magnetic fields.

    A:It should be a non-issue, as LCDs don't use magnetics to steer the non-existant electron beam. :)

    The only danger might be if they produce a large alternating field, as this could induce currents in nearby wiring. Given that they're speakers, rather than motors, I doubt that'll happen.

    do you think that this would hold true if you have all 3 gaming systems as part of your ht set-up? can a non-magnet tower speaker...ah...say the tse300 at close proximity to your system wipe out a gaming hard drive? i have an onkyo 706 7.7 channel reciever, a cd player, all gaming consoles, an lcd that is also a monitor an 7 satillite speakers. just purchased 2 tsi300 floor standing speakers and the cs10 center and the floor standing speakers are not magnetically shielded. unfortunely, i didn't discover this til after i clicked the 'order' button. what do you think. am i in trouble with this kind of set-up? rebug

    theres no way a speaker is going to wipe a hard drive. you should be fine if you have a lcd tv.
