I am in the process of completing my first true dedicated home theater. As I come to the final stages I am realizing that everyone has told me how crucial it is that my side speakers are in perfect line with my optimal seating. I understand the importance however I am now wondering about the second row of seating. I set up my theater with the first row being the optimal row and the second being extra seats. I do want the people in the rear to have great listening enjoyment as well. So my question is can I install 2 sets of dipoles for the sides plus the rear direct radiating?

I have the full Rocket package and am very pleased with the speakers sound now want to truly optimize their use. When you go into a true movie theater they have many side direct radiating speakers so I know it could possibly be done with them I am not sure with the dipoles though.

If anyone has done this or has any thoughts please let me know.


Thank you

In my dedicated theater, I have always used bipoles (or direct radiators in your case) to the sides and Dipoles in the rears. My speakers can switch back and forth from bi- to di- poles pretty easily and were easy to test both ways. After trying them out all ways, this configuration has worked best for me.

Maybe I needed to clarify a little. I have the direct radiators for the rear and dipoles for the sides. My real question is can I add another set of dipoles to the sides for the rear row of seating or will this be bad for sound?

I want the rear row of seating to enjoy the full experience as well.
