A subwoofer non magnetically shielded may be interfering with any other device like a turntable, cassette, reel to reel ?

    If in close proximity, yes, it can wreak havoc.

    I had Rigged like EVERYTHING when I was a kid.

    SUBS and 6x9s to have a LOUD bedroom stereo.

    Never had problems with cassettes or turntables (with grounds). or hahahahahaha. 

    Reel to Reel, I actually played a few, but they sucked.

    What is your actual issue?

    only a load rumbling sound if the cable is touching the cable to the device , no touch no hum ..easiest way is get a proper stereo amp intead of the dvd amp .

    You need a very strong magnetic field in order to do anything like that, and only when you bring it into close proximity.

    Some of the strongest magnets you can get are rare earth magnets found in disk drives, and even with these you have to hold them very close to a TV to have an effect.

    Of course, with old CRT tvs the effect was much greater !

    Holding very close to a reel to reel tape or cassette, you can erase them, but the magnetic field from a loudspeaker is really not that strong.

    I've worked with magnetic tape since 1974

    Not likely, if the sub is at least feet away. 

    Magnetic fields from speakers of any sort are modest in strength.
