View Full Version : Shielding already built speakers from tv?

12-26-2005, 05:59 PM
ive had my speakers setup next to my tv for some time, but i just got a new tv, and for some reason, they are Fing up my picture. now I know they are sheilded, but can i do something else so i dont have to move them?

space is extremely limeted, so i cant move them to another place in my room. its either shield them somehow, or goodbye HT.

im guessing that the problem is somehting with then TV not being shielded or somehting. could i shield the inside of the TV case or somehting? the only way for me to get into my speakers is through the 6" driver hole. the box is sealed all around, and im thinking that would be my best bet, since the other 2 holes are 3" and 4".

i heard foil would some how work, but i dont want it to be ghetto rigged, and im sure other people have this issue too, and have had better solutions.

any ideas would help me a bunch.

Tin foil won't work.
Thin sheets of steel would, or replace the woofers on your speakers with shielded ones.

i dont know but the tv in my room is messed up like that too

the drivers ARE shielded, thats the thing. ive never had an issue before, and i know they are shielded, but for some reason this TV just blows and is giving me trouble. ive had 3 other TVs next to the speakers and ive never had an issue before...

Couple thin pieces of sheet metal inside the TV case then, cut up an old washing machine or something to get the sheet metal.

would alum work? or only steel?

any one else?

Only stuff that a magnet would actually stick to.

oh, ok. that makes sense.

what about just making a shied around each of the magnets of the woofers. like i said, they are already shielded, but apparently its not enough, so if i add another layer around the magnet, would that be enough?

Can't say for sure, it would help to further block the magnetic field.
Bit of trial and error required on this one.
