I store a couple of HDDs very near a classic 8" JBL sub with ginormous magnets for a 8" ...
Nothing happened. Keep in mind that magnet is powerful is enough to nearly overwhelm a neodymium magnet that you find in harddisks @ 1/2 INCH!

It's just like the nonsense you hear while taking IT diploma that they would say "Keep harddisks away from sunlight as that has magnetism"
