The links below show a rough drawing that I have made of the AV I'm thinking of in a condo I'm buying.

I'm looking at something like a KEF T series speakers. I'd use two of their large mains up front with their center channel speaker. They're all flat for spaces sake. I don't want to use these as surrounds as they'll be flat and I don't think it would sound very good. My thoughts are to use something like a bi-pole option from Definitive Technology. I'm also going to put two flat speakers in the dining room.

Will one bipolar surround be ok? Any thoguhts on how high I place the speakers and TV? Any general feedback? Thanks.

I would suggest two surrounds. Spaced evenly away from where that single surround was to be. I dont think a single surround would be very useful.

Since you're using your surrounds on the back wall I think dipoles may be useful. They have a null in front of them and most of their sound will be directed to the more perceptually useful side walls.

TV should be as close to eye height as possible so as to avoid neck strain. Speakers should be as close to the same height as the tv as possible.

Living room: Panasonic TC-P60VT60, 3 KEF LS50, Pioneer SW-8, Marantz NR1603
