Placing unshielded speakers next to eachother?

I'd like to place my unshielded, passive speakers next to my unshielded, active speakers, as close as possible. Two questions:

1) Will this create some kind of electromagnetic (or other) problem?

2) If so, is shielding one set of speakers difficult to do?

The speakers are JBL LSR28P's and Boston Acoustic A60.

Thanks in advance!

It will only be a problem if there are CRT monitors nearby. Kinda makes them pretty, though....

Thanks, tiny!

Hmm... I am still stuck in the CRT stoneage here. Even with the JBL's about 3' away from the monitor, there is some minor "breaking the speed of sound" look at the edges of my screen. While there's an easy-ish way to find out on my own, will the addition of two more unshieled speakers magnify the warped color look?

The magnetic fields may partially cancell each other out and make the effect less dramatic too....
