About Using Speakers Near a TV
The front and center speakers include magnetic shielding and can therefore be installed close to a TV set. Note, however, that
placing speakers too close to a TV may in some cases produces distortion in the color reception. In such case, turn on the TV and
check that color reproduction is normal. If color is distorted, turn the TV off for 15 to 30 minutes, then turn it back on and check
again. (This allows the TV's degaussing circuitry to correct for the magnetic field from the speakers.) If distortion is still present,
move the speakers further from the TV.
