36XS955 - safe distance from subwoofer/power conditioner?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, I have a Sony 36XS955 and I just got an APC power conditioner (H15) and a Starfire sub (10 inch). With the power conditioner directly below the TV, the tube showed some signs of magnetic interference (green/black blobs at the bottom of the screen). So I moved it about 3 feet back and left from the TV but I still see a little bit of interference on the right hand side, which is the opposite side from the power conditioner. However, the sub is on that side.

The sub manual says to put at least 2 feet of distance between the CRT and the sub, and I have, but I can't go any further than that. Do you think I need to radically rearrange my system or is there some way to detect and mitigate these problems?

Let me know your thoughts.

I have always had my sub at least 3 feet from any set I have owned and surround speakers at least a couple of feet also. Now I have in wall speakers. Never have had any problems.

What about with power conditioners? My friend says I'm nuts and that a power conditioner shouldn't give any magnetic interference, but moving it away really did help.

The power conditioner may have transformers in it, so there's a magnetic field, also, just move the sub farther away as a test. The degauss circuit may need a chance to work a few times to clear the magnetism from your TV.
