(For example, non-shielded is bad for computer speakers that sit close to a monitor). Does it matter for something like a sub that sits on the floor?
Most people buy subs that are way too small and/or are way too underpowered for their rooms. If you just want to add some bottom end to a 2.0 setup, fine, but if you want a decent HT experience you aren't likely to get one out of that sub.
Am I correct in assuming this bonus room is above the garage, and quite open? If so this sub will be very underpowered, but if you just want a little bit of rumble to go with your movies, it might be OK.
Don't worry about the magnetic shielding, that is more for things like CRT monitors. LCDs aren't affected by it. These days there is little reason for it for most applications.

Yeah. Thanks for the response. I did more digging into this and it looks like this will work as a Power Amplifier. I am planning to use my Yamaha Aventage RX-A 2060 as the Pre-Amp and Cyrus will be used for the front two channels.
Currently Cyrus One is retails for $1,499 and it is getting really good reviews. Not sure how much wiggle room is there
This week I am bleeding money

Holy crap For those kind of watts at a reasonable pricepoint, you're going to be looking at Class-D amps, which likely means moreso receiver units than standalone amps.
If anyone is looking into trying a Squeezebox Touch transport system, I have my full package available. Essentially what this does is takes your files from a computer/server/NAS and controls the playback features with say an iPad or Android, an has a nice screen to display information. It's also updated to play all the latest file formats.
