It was a high-end dealer who first told me about the shorting the speaker
terminals tweak 40 years ago. But when it comes to big-box stores, you are
Maybe the stores I've been too aren't quite classy enough, but I've never been in a stereo store that has ONLY the single pair of speakers in the room during an audition. Sure, the better stores generally aren't wall-to-wall speakers, but usually there is at least a couple of pairs present.
Interestingly, I have two acoustic guitars in my listening room at home and from time to time I will hear them ring in sympathy with the music I'm playing, but can't say it has ever really bothered me. But, while I enjoy good sound, I gave up being an obsessed purist a long time ago. Its a lot more fun these days to just enjoy the music.
Many things in the room will resonate, shelving, dishes,
windows, lamps, cabinets, walls, ceilings, on and on. If you did a slow
audio gen. sweep, at volume, you'd notice things buzzing/ringing at many
frequency's. Try shorting THAT out :)
