    Are Tripole better than Dipole??

    Hi All, Have Crystal Acoustics Dipoles at the moment which I have found are great! But wondered if the MK triples give a better dispersion? Any opinions on this would be great! Cheers speed

    Bi-Pole or Dipole

    Hi every one I have a pair of Monitor audio Bronze Bi-pole/ Di-pole speakers as rear surrounds or backs what ever you want to call them. They are on my rear wall where the main sofa runs, not ideal I know but it’s the only place they can go. Should they be set for Bi-Pole or Di- Pole for Dolby...

    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. I dont have a very big living room and as a result I would like the surround speakers to be low profile against the wall. For reference I have a monitor audio RS centre with...

    Dipole Speakers (ADP 370) with couch against the wall for 5.1

    My room is 11' x 16' x 8', enclosed and was wondering where I can place Paradigm ADP-370 dipole speakers with the couch against the wall. TV and couch is on the center of the 16' wall. Manual and most forums say it should be on the side wall but their couch was 2-3 feet away from the wall. I've...

    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...

    Rear speakers - When sofa is against back wall

    I have a really nice 5.1 setup in a nice little living room. The front 3 speakers are well placed and so is the sub. But, the sofa touches the rear wall and my rear speakers are quite high up on said back wall. They don’t sound amazing. They’re classics mission bipoles. I brought one down to...

    Question Dipole speakers in a sound treated room

    Basically my 'movie room' also doubles up as a music production room, therefore there's a decent amount of sound absorption. The way it works is if I'm watching movies the music stuff is behind me, if I'm working on music the projector screen is behind me, so they are kind of back to back, the...

    Question Dolby Atmos / DTS:X and di-pole surrounds

    Hi there, I wasn't really sure where best to place this thread, as I guess it concerns speakers and amps... Anyway, I currently have a 7.1 setup, and was just about to change my side speakers for a set of dipoles, as there is generally a lack of ambience and the side speakers are a bit too...
