I have a Definitive Technology system that I purchased in 2000 with 2004TL mains, CLR-2300 center, BP2X surrounds and BP1.2X rears.

I also have several extra ProMonitor 80 and ProMonitor 60 speakers that I can utilize.

The BP2X have 14 cm bass/midrange, the BP 1.2x have 12 cm bass/midrange. The ProMonitor 80 has 4 1/2" bass/midrange and the ProMonitor 60 has 3 1/2" bass/midrange. All have the same 1" tweeter.

Am I better off switching out the bipolar speakers surrounds and rears for the Pro Cinema direct radiators to better take advantage of DTS HD Master, Dolby True HD etc.?

If anything you may try swapping out the BP1.2x for the PM80's, that would be about it. The normal recommendation is that bi-poles are ok for surrounds, but mono-poles should be used "If you can" for rears.

While Dolby recommends only mono-poles, using bi-poles is a "very" minor compromise at best, esp as surrounds. Reason for this is that the recommendation of mono-poles has much to do with the object based portion of the audio, to help with its accuracy, and since most Atmos mixes are still 5.1 based with object audio added to that, much of the signal that your surrounds see is still channel based and no different than what we've been used to.

*Warning* None of my suggestions, ideas or even thoughts have any WAF, in any way!
