speakers yesterday
The studio 20s sounded sweet and the 40s nearly made me create a tear in my foreskin ;)
But I ask you:
WHY,OH WHY are there no bipolar studio surrounds??:thumbsdown: :angry: :thumbsdown: :angry:
I do not like the diffuse sound of dipolar speakers and the Studio ADPs are no exception.
I am sure plenty of people like me would like to mount a Studio "ABP" to the sides of the listening area, if only Paradigm would make them (pretty please?)

You could always rewire them to the phase position of your liking! Just switch the positive and negative terminals on the individual drivers as needed.

I believe that one of the sets of drivers are wired to be in-phase and one out-of-phase. (Dipolar vs. Bipolar).

I realize this may not be the response you are wanting, but it probably would work.

I have the ADP's, and they have always seemed OK to me...

If I were to reverse the phase on one set of drivers, what would happen? would I want the reversed pointed forward or backward?

I thought I heard that the Studio ADPs were bipole & dipole (depending on the frequency being produced). They had some circuit that made this possible... perhaps I was misinformed?

Home Theater's Review on ADP's....
Take the same tweeter and midbass from the other models, one set on the front and the other on the back, put the connections on one side and a false grille (like on the CC) on the other, and you’ve got a Studio/ADP. The acronym stands for Adapted Di-Polar: The relative phase of the front and back is unique. At the top end they are dipolar, at the bottom bipolar. In this way, Paradigm gets the spaciousness of a dipole without the bass cancellation.
