Speakers With Monitors

I understand that an unshielded speaker's magnets will cause problems with a video monitor. But rather than buy an expensive shielded speaker, I prefer to buy an inexpensive, bookshelf speaker for the audio output from my 64. Can you tell me what is considered a safe distance to place a small speaker from a monitor?

The speaker will probably not affect your monitor unless you place it directly above or beside the monitor.
