    I'm using pair of bp-2x speakers upstairs in pc system as rears plonked onto a chest. I don't fancy drilling holes is this system is just computer so I was thinking using speakers stands. The bipoles have a metal slot for a screw for wall mount, so are there any speakers strands where a bolt...

    Rears/surrounds - direct radiating, bipole, tripole, dipole etc.

    So I'm redoing my living room and in the process thought it would be a good chance to try upgrade to a good 7.1.2 setup.

    Bipole, dipole or direct with Atmos in this room?

    I am coming across conflicting opinion and advice on this, with some people even slating what Dolby themselves recommend, so I'm unclear what my approach should be. I would assume it's largely room dependent anyway, so have attached an image below of my space. I have x3 LCR in-walls up front...

    Question Couch in the corner and against the back wall: side & rear surrounds

    I searched all around to get ideas for my particular setup, but couldn't find many options where the couch is against the back corner wall and there's a large space where a side wall would normally be in a rectangular room. I can do either a 5.1.4, 7.1.4, or even a 9.1.4 setup with Atmos/Auro 3D...

    Question Wharfedale DFS vs Eltax HT for Bipole Surrounds?

    Hi was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the Wharfedale DFS (specifically 18) vs. the Eltax HT2 as bipoles for rear wall surrounds? I want to try out some bipoles and I can get either pretty cheap, but didn't know if one was better than the other (I'm guessing the Wharfedales have a...

    Hi. I currently have a 3.1 setup, which I'm looking to expand over time. The next part of my plan is taking it up to 5.1 with a pair of bipoles on either side of the sofa. (If it's bipole/dipole-selectable, that's OK.) The question, in short: Can anyone recommend a pair of bipole (or...
