    Hey everyone:

    I have Infinity IL40s for my mains and IL36 for my center speaker. I'm currently using the Infinity IL10's for surrounds and they are good, but they are too big and bulky for me to mount and I would prefer a dipole/bipole speaker for surrounds instead of a monopole speaker.

    Any suggestions for inexpensive surrounds that sound good and are small and easy to mount?

    Thanks.

    The Wharfedale Diamond DFS dipole surrounds sound like they might fit your criteria well.
    I have'm and love'm.
    Of course, if you incorporate a different brand with the Infinity speakers you have you won't have the timbre matching surround sound that is needed for a seamless sound field.

    Check out the Energy line of speakers. The exl series may do it for you.

    They sell quad speakers for surround speakers that are the best I have ever heard. They are cost effective, include shipping, come with a 30 day return policy, and are worth checking out.

    anybody with this axiom setup?
    bookshelves: M3Ti
    surround: QS4
    center: VP100
    Subwoofer: EP175

    what's the difference between vortex/reflex enclosure versus acoustic suspension?

    all these speakers are capable up to 175 watt. and i only have 100 watt/channel with 1% THD rating at 1KHz. (it's a pioneer VSX-D711 receiver) what's my sound limitation before my amp clips?

    this is a newbie question:b

    Chun,

    A bass reflex cabinet is ported and an acoustic suspension cabinet is sealed.
