What Type of Surround Speakers Do You Use?
What's the difference? Bipole and dipole surround speakers include two sets of drivers that fire more or less in opposite directionswith bipoles, the drivers are in phase, while a dipole's drivers are out of phase, creating a null region along the central axis between the drivers. Monopoles are simply conventional direct-radiating speakers with a single set of drivers that many prefer for multichannel music, but they don't create a diffuse surround soundfield that benefits most movie soundtracks.
