Using Axiom QS8 (dipole) for rear surround in 5.1.4 ATMOS
Spoke to a rep from Axiom today (great company, btw) regarding potential trade ups on my Axiom speakers. I have a pair of QS8's and I assumed I would need to trade them in for M3's or something similar. However, the lady I spoke to said that, because of the way the QS8's are designed, that even though bi/dipole rears are discouraged, the QS8's work very well due to their design. Talking further, she even said they would work just as good up on the back wall, near the ceiling, pointed down towards the listening area...rather than at ear height. She told me to save my speakers (and money) and stick with the QS8's.
Does this sound like it could work, or am I going to get sub optimal results?
