    I was wondering what type of surrounds I should use for my rear channels. I have bi poles for the side surrounds. I was wondering should i use direct rad. And if it cant place them directly behind where I sit. Is it okay to just point them towards where I sit?

    Thanks

    I'm in the same place and considering direct radiators to create a well-localized back soundfield.

    FWIW

    If you have bipoles for surrounds, direct radiators are probably the best best for the rears. Try a search on 7.1. There have been a few threads on this recently.
