View Full Version : dipole-bipole?? direct radiating
07-30-2003, 05:25 PM
I have 4 fx500i for surround & back. Would I get better sound from a direct radiating speaker in back or from what I am using now? It sounds good now but the surround back could sound better. thanks

Try bipole switch at the rear and dipole switch at the sides. Also, in the rear try to arrange it so the midrange driver faces toward the listener.

If you have 4 of them the two in the rear should be in Bipole mode, the sides in Dipole. This should give you a pretty sweet soundfield. The null that is created with Dipoles only will be filled by the Bipoles. The Bipoles in the rear will diffuse the sound better than a direct radiating.
I personally don't plan to take that route, but then again I don't have 4 FX500i's laying around :) I am going with a center channel for my rear surround, it will fill in my null spot.
