Should I get just a set of speakers for the rears, or dipoles? My couch is against the wall behind me, so there is no way to have speakers behind me, unless they're literally above the couch.
What I've done for now is I have a pair of cheap speakers on each side (total of 4 rear speakers), they are out as far as they can go and on the wall behind my couch. One speaker faces forward (toward the TV) and one faces the listening area (me). They are wired in parallel, but the speaker that faces the TV is wired in phase while the speaker that faces me is out of phase. This seems to make it much harder for my ear to know where there sound is coming from. When I had just one speaker on each side, I could tell and it was very distracting.
I hope this makes sense, I'll try to add a photo as well.
But yeah, what should I do about rears?
