    Magnetic Shielding

    When a friend and I were shopping around for speakers for him a comment that one of the salesman made I did not completely trust so I offer here for your consideration. The statement was that magnetic shielding weakens the speakers abilities.

    I am not sure that I believe this so does anyone have any ideas as to weather this is true?

    unless its poorly implemented I doubt it has any effect at all on the speaker drivers.

      If the shielding is done after the fact; like adding bucking magnets, then this can make some minimal changes to the T/S parameters. But with factory build shielded speakers this isn't an issue. It's possible the salesman was confused or just BS'ing
