    I have been reading for the past 3 hours about the debate against bipole/dipole/monople....wich are better in your opinion. I just bought a pair of these and if they are inferior I will take them back....don't want a week spot in my system. My system is used for movies and gaming primarly.

    Lot of people where saying that with the DTS discrete channels that bipoles are inferior. I listen to a LOT of DTS material. I do like hearing sounds on the left and right with a lot of content...bullets, machine guns ECT

    I'm not familiar with those bipoles, but I love mine. I switched from direct surround speakers to Energy bipoles a couple years ago. The sound is much more dispersive with the bipoles. I can't see myself ever going back to direct surrounds.

    It depends on the room too. I have several systems in the house. I have directs in the main system but bipoles in the secondary basement system and the way the room is arranged they work great.
