A sub magnet doesn't have enough electrons to move a paper clip, unless the clip is under a couple inches from the magnet iself.

The magnet on a sub in a box in the trunk isn't what fucks up rear deck speakers. It is the pressure from the cone forcing air out of the trunk through any place it can.

So when a speaker in the rear deck gets throw out of wack, ot blows, blaim it on the sub pushing air into the deck speakers and ripping the hell out of the cone.

Hope that is what your asking.

i remember messing up the tv with the magnets on some of my subs even though they were a few feet away. I have also heard of people have had this problem with the subs on the other side of the room from the tv.

Magnets of any kind will messup the color of a tv, more powerfull the magnet, worse it reflects on the tv.

But that is because a colored tv is very sensitive to magnets, other speakers (metal and magnets) are not very sensitive to a subwoofer magnet.

To have the sub magnet cause even a little effect on a component speaker, the sub magnet would almost be touching the component magnet.

Buy some of those cheap foam like baffels and put them under your rear deack speakers.

That is a great Idea, not only because it stops the sub from blowing the cone off the 6x9, but will also make your 6x9's sound louder and cleaner cause they would now have an enclosure.

And if you want your 6x9s to act they are in a bigger box, add some poly-fill inside the baffles.

Poly.....now I never thought of that. But you can tune them by cutting holes in them.......

These are what you need.......

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-l2BZ4g9VNWe/c...w.asp?I=237XT62


Designed to tighten bass response and increase the overall performance of car/marine/in-wall speakers. The baffles help to isolate your speakers sound so that more audio is delivered to you and less is lost behind the speakers. Baffles also help to lessen that hollow and thin bass that most speakers reproduce unless they are confined in an enclosure such as a box or baffle.

Have you tried the crutchfield baffles? I bought em for my 6x9's and hated em. They are just light weight foam and they tear easy. Their so delicate that they are a pain in the ass to attach securly without ripping em. Also I didnt notice any significant difference in sound but I didnt use polyfill. Maybe I was doin somethin wrong but they werent worth the trouble for me. Im not even using them anymore. Someone on here once told me to make a baffle with fiberglass using a maragrine tub to hold the shape. It sounded like a much better idea but Ive never worked with fiberglass so I havent experimented yet.
