Default What kind of separation req'd between compass and speakers?

Since speakers have magnets in them, what kind of minimum separation would be needed between my cc mounted speakers and compass? and is there a minimum distance required between stereo & vhf radio and compass? I am trying to rig my new boat with what electronics I think I need.

Appreciate any advice.

regular 6.5 inch type speakers? - not much - maybe 3 feet or so - just get them near each other and see if the card moves

a big mag sub-woofer is another matter - I had a autopilot compass within 4 foot of a sub and it really screwed it up - needed 6 or 7 feet before it worked...

Are there speakers with shields that block the magnetic or electrical interference from effecting the compass, if 3 foot separation might not be attainable or reasonable? I am trying to mount probably only 2 - 6x9 speakers on the center console, want to put the compass on top of cc and mount the speakers down by my knees on the cc. This might be a bad setup, but I am not trying to keep it simple.

Not 6x 9 speakers, but 6.5 inch speakers.
