Z-5500 speaker placement

  1. Hi,

    I have just ordered the Logitech Z-5500 Speakers. I have read many comments about this set, and noticed that alot of people say that you have to keep the sub at least 60cm away from electronic devices, like CRT Monitors. I was just wondering if it would be safe to put it in the range of a printer, and if not, how would it actually effect it?

    Thanks

    It's not going to affect the printer...

    Unless you like to really crank the woofer to where it's causing other things to vibrate uncontrollably nothing will happen. Sometimes audio devices like to interfere with 2.4Ghz wireless devices though so if you notice some static I might rearrange your setup to compensate.

    I've got them next to my TV and games consoles (less than 60cm) and it doesn't affect anything. I used to have them next to my computer and didn't notice anything either. But then I don't really crank the sub up that much otherwise the neighbours would complain ;)

    It's because of the speaker magnets that can affect CRT monitors and hard drives if it gets too close.
