Speakers and a fireplace heat?

So I am thinking of moving my system into another room, but it has a fireplace and I would like to use the fireplace.

This might seem like a dumb question, but I have never considered it and it seems like it would be bad, but how far from the fireplace should speakers be?

I am not speaking of acoustics, but of the heat or long term effects.
as far as they do not catch the fire....
So the heat in the room if they are 4-5' from the fireplace won't dry out the cones or anything?
it is room temperature...as if you have any other kind of heat(air,water etc) so if you do not "overcook" the room you should be OK.
It would concern me. If they are fairly close to the fireplace they will get hotter than the room temperature is. No different than if you sit to close to a campfire. At first you're comfortable, pretty soon you get hot and have to move back. Same thing. Set them up and see how warm they get. If they seem to warm, I'd move them away.
Far enough away so they don't get too warm while a fire is going on.
Very bad idea!!
If the sides of the speakers are warm from fireplace or just sun radiation it is not optimal. My concern would be with ferrofluid widely used in tweeters but sometimes even in midrange (my speakers have 6 1/2 midrange drivers using ferrofluid as a suspension). When ferrofluid dries out (temperature speeds up the process) it has to be replaced. It can be done but it is hard to find proper people for the job.
Give up use of the fireplace. Replace it with a virtual one. Many bluray ones available.
A humidifier is a good idea...
