    Can bipoles be used without a wall immediately behind them? My new HT room will be completely open on the right hand side. Can I put a bipole on a speaker stand and still get decent sound?
    Thanks,

    Yes, you can.

    You will have fun calibrating it - since you are missing first reflections (and that is what dipoles are using).

    Quite a few times I was listening to such setup Laurel, Md Audio store; it is interesting sound.

    You may want to try it first - borrow a pair of dipoles, and put it on top of dirtectional speaker; if you rig allows it, switch between direct/dipole and hear what you like more.
