    Ok...I'm still trying to nail down some speakers to purchase. I'll be puchasing the fronts first (with possibly the center also)
    Then the rear speakers and then finally the svs 20-39 sub.
    I'll be running all this outta a denon 3802 and I was wondering a few things...
    The rear speakers are what is giving me the most problems deciding.
    Do I need surround speakers, just plain rears speakers, dipolar speakers etc.
    I'm gonna probably have it as a 50/50 system and I'm just wondering what exactly will my needs be for rear speaker sound.
    Here is an article discussing dipolar speakers...maybe you will find it interesting...

    i wuold say just get as good a pair of speakers as possible. I think that the whole dipolar/bipolar thing is kind of BS, but just my opinion.

    I am happy with my direct-radiating rear speakers, and I experience the sensation of being immersed in a diffuse sound field. Keep in mind that for many movies, you do want to be able to localize surround effects.
