I currently have a pair of 10+ year old PSB Century 300i's for my surrounds, but I'm thinking maybe I should switch them out for a dipole -- say perhaps the Image S5 (would I need a pair of these, or would 1 suffice?).

The biggest concern of mine is that my theatre room is L shaped, with the bottom of the L being where the listening position is. Are there concerns with placing a speaker along that wall with regards to reflections taking longer on one side? Are these correctable with settings on the receiver? I currently have a Pioneer Elite VSX-21TXH fulfilling that role.

I think that the best match for the speakers you have would be the PSB Image B4. If you use a pair, and they are not too close to walls, and they are aimed at the listening area, it should work out OK.
