Will Paradigm *EVER* make a bipoler model in the Studio line?

    So I finnaly got a chance to hear some Studio 20 [​IMG] and some Studio 40 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] speakers yesterday
    The studio 20s sounded sweet and the 40s nearly made me create a tear in my foreskin [​IMG]
    But I ask you:
    WHY,OH WHY are there no bipolar studio surrounds??[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    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?
