Haha, I chuckled first time I saw that in my AVR's manual and just knew it had to go in the sig. All too appropriate!!! thx

Can you pull the driver and put some shielding around it.

There was a reason there used to be shielded speakers back when CRT TV's were the norm.

Perhaps worth giving it a try.

To prevent color distortion on the CRT screen.

10 years ago, I used to live in an apt, that butted up against the freeway....

Installed my ht system and was enjoying the first listening session, when all of a sudden ---- my speakers maxed out with the sound of ---- wait for it....

Truck drivers on their CB's.... clear as day at 100db's....
Scared the *#$& outta me...

My speaker wires were picking up the CB's like an antenna, with their gains...
I ended up running the speaker wires through some 1/2" conduit and problem solved....

Obviously not the same here, but a lesson learned...
