They are not shielded but as they are computer speakers, they will have little or not effect being near a TV supposedly and judging by what I hear. That would be a no.
At the sub $500 price range I am looking at. NOT always are the best ones passive with an amp. And then we also need to explain best. Best in my case would be simple and with not many wires and small. So in my case, no amp and passive speaker would get on the list sadly. For my personal room? Hell yes. Audio Engine 5+'s? Maybe no.. I would be getting some floor standing big boys.
But for my living room purpose. All in one and small, good sound, and has to be "loud enough" without distortion or problems. Although its hard to tell if it will be as while the living room area is small, it is veyr open.
