Most computer speakers are (SHIELDED) and this protects electronics from the magnets in the speakers! So you should be safe if your surround sound system is made for a computer system! ( if not two feet is a safe distance)

if you are using lcd monitor then it will not do any damage to it. however, if it is a crt type of monitor then yes it can or may damage the monitor. if the speakers do not that they are shielded then you should assume that they are not and should be placed away from the crt monitor because the speakers magnetic field will affect the crt magnetic filed used to display the picture on the screen. speakers with high magnetic fields and are unshielded should kept away from crt type monitors! lcd monitors do not use magnetic fields to bring a picture to the screen so it will not affect these types of monitors. you nay also check your user's or owner's manual for more information on you speakers and maybe check any of the manufactures web site as well. but it better safe the sorry to keep the speakers away from the monitor in question.
Surround modes usually process the sound to make it appropriate for the direction from which you'll hear it (ambience, echo, reverb, spatial cues).
Surrounds are not meant to be listened to alone. Does the sound from the surrounds mesh with or enhance the other channels? Perhaps a look in the manual may help, if we knew what electronics we're talking about.
if the speaker is actually receiving signal and has sound, the next question is if the sub is self amplified or not. if it is check the amp in it. if not then check your unit to make sure the bass is not turned down and that the correct surround setting are there. there is also possibility that the show or item your listening too isn't outputting correct channels.
You might be able to get the manufacturer to replace it. Sub woofer repair is possible and some manufactures do offer that service, you'll have to check with them though. There is one other thing to consider- does it still work? If so you might be in luck. The magnet is there for its magnetic feild not how it looks. So if the magnetic field is un-affected and the voice coil is in one piece and un-obstructed it should be just fine. If the field is slighty out of place or not as strong it will probably affect its performance though. Good luck.
