I was curious if you could help me set up my Polk Fxi30's properly.. I have a funny shaped room that is in an L configuration. I have attached a picture to show you the rough configuration. The Blue is the Tv. The couch is the black line between the back speakers, and all of the speakers are in red. My back two speakers are currently bookshelves and the one on the left is on a stand (with an actual bookshelf behind it) the one on the right is on a window sill. I am switching them out for the FXi30's.


I am concerned about having the left speaker on dipole setting as I think it is meant to bounce of a wall. The speakers have to stay in the same location as I have the dining room and a path to walk out to the balcony right behind the couch. Should I set them to dipole or bipole or should I just stick with my bookshelf speakers if these speakers won't work well with my setup?

di-bipole won't work in that room

Why do you say that? di-pole are harder to place, but it looks good with where he has the dots.

:/ So what are my options with these FXi30's that I bought... Don't use them? Sell them and go back to my bookshelves?

Where you have the dots, You can place the speakers and select di or bi-poles to see which you like better.

I can't return them. I bought a CSi30 and the pair of Fxi30's for $100. Not a bad deal. I guess I could sell them, but I am probably moving out in a year and I can use them in my next place for all I know.

If you look at any drawing for di-bipole speakers (Axiom, Polk, pick ANY of them) they show sound BOUNCING OFF THE BACK WALL.


How, in your room, is sound supposed to bounce off the "back" wall, when there is no "back" wall???


You can certainly try them, no harm there, then try some regular bookshelves. But all sound with the di-bipoles firing backwards is going to get lost in the hollowness of no back wall.

If it is any help. My couch is only 10 feet from the back wall.. There is a table and a few chairs and a desk in the corner, but it is still able to bounce of the back wall, albeit with a few things in the way.
