So I bought a Surround sound bar to go with my Plasma but now I am scared to use it lol.

Is it true that plasma's CANNOT be damaged by the magnetic field the speakers produce unlike the other types of T.V.'s?
I want to make SURE a year from now I don't have any damage due to something like this.

I was told it can take up to a year for the other T.V. types to show damage as it can do damage slowly over time.

I set my bar mount about 2.5 inches below the T.V. but have not placed it yet because I want to find out for CERTAIN whether the new speakers could damage the television.

Thanks everyone!

You are fine. Only CRT's are damaged by speaker magnets.

You can run that Plasma through an MRI machine without hurting it.

But - how can a sound bar be "surround sound"? Does it have wireless rear speakers or sumthin?

Na, Just 15 beam digital sound projector (sound bar) and a sub. Under the right room conditions they can and will give the surround effect.

These also came with a wireless subwoofer you can put anywhere. It is actually made by Samsung.
Got it at Best Buy.
