This explains magnets and color tv screens. http://www.howeverythingworks.org/television.html

Can the magnet from a subwoofer cause trouble for an amp? I doubt it. Reasons why. Look at a bookshelf stereo. Check and see how close the speakers are to the receiver. I don't see them having problems. Look at guitar amps, aren't the amp and speaker built as one unit? The ones I have seen is yes and they don't have problems.

This is my opinion and I gave reasons for it. Plus, it'* better than no answer.

Uhhh, DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME FOLKS!!

Some TV'* don't have the ability to degauss themselves. Which means you will be stuck with odd colors on your TV for some time. Unless your good with a magnet and you can do it yourself.
