    I currently have Boston Acoustics CR55 surrounds located about 6ft high and 4ft. behind on my side walls. The room is quite narrow and the ceiling is vaulted to one side (see my HT page below for pics of my room). Would dipoles be better performing in such a room or does the room have nothing to do with this choice?

    Anyone have experience with Boston's VRS or VRS Pro?

    Thanks for the help,
    Brian

    Dipoles get their ambient qualities by reflecting sound off the front and back walls, so with them the room is definitely a consideration.

    In your situation, with the room being so narrow and non-symmetrical, I think I’d stick with the monopoles.
