    Hey, my second post!!

    Anyway, I'm still using a Pro logic HT, and I'm planning to upgrade. My surround speakers are Cambridge soundworks "The Surround" -- not the 5.1 model, but the original dipolar. Can they possibly be used in any capacity, or are they now scrap?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    You could eat them! :-D

    mmmmmm..

    and dipoles work fine in audio systems, in fact I use dipoles & bipoles for surround duties. So if they're perfectly good speakers and have suitable low-end near to your av amps crossover, and don't sound rubbish you can use them.

    Seems you could still use them as surrounds. Or there's always ebay.

    These dipoles were designed for Dolby Prologic -- where the rear channel was only something like 200 Hz - 14,000 Hz, or something like that. So these speakers can't play the full range of 5.1 dolby.

    I'm thinking about selling the entire Prologic system this summer at a garage sale.

    Use the receiver and speaker system for your computer.

    Use it your garage / workshop.

    Put it in your bedroom or kids' room.

    Give it to your uncle who still thinks quadraphonic is the bee's knees.
