    If you have 7.1 system and choose to use bipole speakers will they interfere with the rear surrounds or should you just have a 5.1 with bipoles?

    The "standard" setup is dipoles on the sides, then with 7.1 you use bipoles in the back. Everyone has their preference (usually they decide the first thing they tried is the best, without trying anything else), but that is sort of the default setup.

    I really have no idea. I do question whether throwing that many speakers into the mix is a good idea, unless maybe you have a truly enormous HT.
