Shielding for NS10's

    I'm considering moving some things around in my control room and was thinking of putting my CRT monitors between my NS10's. How could I go about shielding the drivers in the NS10's so there's no issues between the CRT's and the NS10's? Thanks.

    get a couple of lcds insted of thouse old crts.

    I'd like to know this as well. My NS-10Ms have to be placed very close to dual 17" CRTs. Replacing the CRTs with LCDs is -not- feasible.

    Any ideas on shielding NS-10s?

    shielding the ns-10's will affect the magnetic fields of the drivers.... thereby changing sound!!

    don't do it!!

    get better monitors.... (audio or visual)

  8. Its done the same way as shielding speaker cabs, except this time you build a box for your CRT monitor. You just have to make sure you have plenty of ventilation, as those babies get HOT!

    if you can do that cheaper than a couple of new flatscreens i'm amazed...

    My thoughts as well ... You need to use MU Metal to shield eletronic components. Considering the cost of the Mu Metal, just switching over the flat panel monitors would most likely be the cheaper way to go. Plus you will get the added benifit of less heat and lass space constraints. I love my flat panel monitor. IMO it's a much better investmrent than something like a control surface.

    I was hoping there would be a simple, cheap way to do it until around xmas time when a friend might be selling his dual 19" LCDs. Oh well.

    There is. Get some magnetic tape from Radio Shack, and experiment with putting it around the CRT at various places and angles. You should be able to find a position suitable enough to counteract the magnetism from the NS-10s. You may have to turn the tape around, depending on the polarity of the tape versus the NS-10. You can also use those little square magnets from a hardware store if the speaker is REALLY close.

    Don't worry about messing up the CRT in this scenario, as the fields are cancelling each other out.

    Also, you'd have to induce one mother of a magnetic field to affect the way a speaker sounds.
