If anyone is placing an unshielded sub next to a computer (not recommended), at least orient the sub so the driver is orthogonal to the HD. Using right hand rule, point your thumb in the same direction the driver is in, and rotate your hand. The rotation of your hand shows you the orientation of the magnetic field.
Thus the cone of the driver should either fire directly towards or 180 deg away from the HD.
I once had a very powerful sub placed near a CRT (had no choice) and simply fired the sub drivers towards the side of the CRT and there were no magnetic field related issues.

I'm guessing they opted not to shield the sub because that's really only an issue with a CRT (at least that's what I've been led to believe - I read it on the internet, so it must be true). Since CRTs are, essentially, extinct (except on my home desktop), they're probably just saving on manufacturing costs on a feature that 99%, ok, 90% of the world doesn't need.
Hard drive are susceptible to magnetic interference far more than crts are data los is a real issue and for 250 shielding should have been included in all three parts
