Bipolars or Bookshelfs for surrounds?

It depends on your room layout and what you prefer. Personally I prefer bipoles for surrounds as you get a more atmospheric surround sound. Definitive Technology BP-2X for rears.

Hey thanks badbob (are you from ocuk) - room layout is like the pic below.

Different room layout to mine, but if you want to simulate bipoles, aim your rear left to the front of the room, now move the rear right to the rear left (keeping wire attached) then place back to back, facing south. Play some mono music. To get dipole effect reverse the phase of the rear facing speaker.
