Monitors (speakers) near monitors (video)

Did we used to have to buy (audio) monitors that were somehow "shielded" so the magnetic fields wouldn't distort the (video CRT) monitors near them?

My avatar is a Rondo electric 12, I guess I should leave it at my friend's since I got the Ric. The octaves make even my basic riffs sound like songs.

monitor recommendations - bedroom studio?

I've had Event 20/20's (passive, 8" driver) for several years (is it 15 already?), lately the left one has been sounding flaky, it's probably time to replace. I guess I'd rather stay with something this size, for the bass response (unless modern speakers with 5" have the same or better specs). It al...

Got a loaded Squire Strat neck off of Ebay, and bolted onto this leftover body:
Tuned/strung Nashville tuning - .026w .018 .015 .009 .013 .011 - like the octave strings on a 12 string.

My avatar is an electric 12 from Rondo, nice wide neck. It had a couple of minor finish flaws. I had a Dan-O 12 reissue that I liked better, but someone stole it.

Kala "sopranino" uke, 11" scale, $125. Tuning cFAD for now. I don't have Andre the Giant hands, this thing is just really small. That's what she said :-( http://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/10494593_10152181560441770_2320507230007060305_n.jpg?oh=151a6ba465520fb26c7e557191b...

I have a pair of unpowered Event 20/20s, which apparently are almost 20 years old now, one is acting flaky playing bass tones, I guess I need to upgrade as well... (I don't know if it's "user serviceable" or worth it to just replace a woofer in those)

What's the connection between Bonham and the web site/auction house called "Bonham"? Or is that a common surname over there?

Audio cables will not get close to the speed of light. The spec is called 'propagation delay'. My best high speed data cables work at 70% propagation delay, not too shabby. The best fiber optics work much faster. If the 70% means the fraction of the speed of light, that's still something like 700,0...
