AV:Shielded Speakers List

From ConsoleMods Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

If you are using speakers near a CRT monitor, it is important that you use magnetically shielded ones that will prevent the magnets inside of the speakers from interfering with your image. Even if it is not immediately apparent that it is affecting your image, over time it can cause distortion in your image.

Note that there has been cases where there is a model revision that removes shielding. If you come across one of these models, please clarify that.
