Front firing bookshelf? Dipole? Bipole? I would assume a normal front firing bookshelf would be best but I don't know

Timbre matched monopoles. Dipoles won't work because you can't sit in the null.wink.gif

And to confirm a mono pole is a regular single directional speaker correct?

Yes a monopole is a regular direct radiating (front firing) speaker.

Just keep in mind that "front high" speakers will need similar capability to your LCR. I run "front wides," and sitting between L and LW (at a PC desk), there's no difference in loudness level as there might be with surrounds in HT applications. Think equal sensitivity and power handling, as well as timbre.

HAve fun,
Frank
