    I am looking at adding a rear back speaker for my setup for DTS-ES. I currently am running 2 dipolar surrounds. My question: Can I just buy a monopole rear for this and expect it to sound good? I dont see how I would add a dipole speaker, as they are left/right specific. If I do add a monopole, do I need to switch my other rears to monopoles? Any opinions or experiences would be helpful.

    My relavent specs:
    Pioneer VSX-D850S reciever
    Polk FXi50 rears

    Thanks!!

    That is similar to what I am running right now and it sounds good to me. [​IMG]

    A monopole is preferred I believe, and then just leave your dipoles the way they are.
