    I recently bought some monitors (speakers) for my small, in-house studio and due to neccesity, they are only about a foot away from my monitor. Unfortunatly that doesnt seem far enough as they are distorting my computer monitor. It will be quite difficult to re-arrange the room an I'm hoping you all know of a good way to insulate or reflect the magnetic field? Ive seen some options online for ALOT of money ($750 to $1300 for monitor inclosures). Wondering if there is an easy and/or cheap fix

    Sounds like like really poor speakers that aren't properly shielded. Solution - get decent shielded speakers.

    They're just old. They were premium studio reference monitors (JBL 4411) in 1975 and they do sound good and very flat but yea, they are unshielded apperantly....

    There are materials to shield magnetic fields, but as you have already discovered, it's usually a bit expensive. FWIW, something as simple as a steel shield around the magnets will have a significant effect, you're just looking for something to keep the magnetic flux busy. :D We had an issue like this on an airplane sensor, and the final fix was enclosing it in a steel shield, worked just fine. :cool:
