Safe monitor speaker to R2R deck distance?

(1/1)

DRCope:
Greetings,

I'm setting up a project studio which is R2R tape (") centric. Right now the deck is in the center of the recording arrangement with speakers on shelves 3-4' away and about 2' higher than the deck. Is there a rule of thumb to come up with a safe distance to maintain between the deck/tape and speakers? I've never had occasion to have them lined up like this in setting up a purely playback system, so this is new to me.

Thanks in Advance!

docb:
It will depend somewhat upon the strength of the magnets in the speakers, but in general the setup you describe sounds OK.
