Actually it is. An undriven speaker will act as a Helmholtz resonator. If
having just the one pair of speakers in a room is not an option, you can
minimize the effect of the other speakers on sound quality by shorting
their terminals together. If their drivers try to vibrate in sympathy,
this generates a back EMF that holds the cones still.
