    Can anyone tell me where I might get my ears around the 703's in the NYC area?

    I believe they have already been in the NY area... Check page 11 of this thread.

    People need to start thinking about moving the 703's out of the SE, unless some more GA or FL Polkies want to get their ears on them? Anyone? Have the 703's been through TX, or would there be any interest in moving through them through TX?

    Unboxed and ready to play! I'll most likely run them this afternoon and tonight with MOG streaming, and all day tomorrow to get some hours through them. Tomorrow night I'll spin some discs through them...

    Thanks again Polk, and Jon!

    man, I guess I wasn't quick enough. I went to the "Where to buy section" but I only see LSI on the pull-down menu, not LSIM.

    I'd call Polk or those dealers to see where you may get your ears on a pair. I've got mine on a pair right now!

    Your center channel is not centered - that would drive me nuts! Also, it looks to be in contact with the wall - not recommended from my experience.

    The LSiC is meant to be mounted to the wall. It helps reinforce the bass response from the powerports in the back. Many of the guys here say it sounds its best when mounted on the wall as opposed to being on top an entertainment center.

    Not recommended with the LSiC, or not recommended with some other center channel speaker? The way the ports are configured on the rear of the LSiC eliminates worry about contact with the rear wall.

    After hearing the 707's at CES last year I've been itching to hear more...

    Are either of the speakers making their way further inland? If so I'd love to demo them and put on a show for any interested parties in the Salt Lake City area!

    I agree. Nice speakers but make some measurements. You will have a very nice system then.

    I'd really like to demo the 707's. I'm on the east coast just north of Philadelphia Pa.

    Does anyone know if the new Polk LSIM surrounds are bipole speakers only? If so, is this the new trend here?

    They make the LSiM 703's which are bookshelf and can be used as surrounds......

    Here is how the comparison breaks down new to old:

    LSiC replaced by LSiM 704c and LSiM 706c
    LSi F/X's were replaced by the LSiM 702 F/X
    LSi 7 and LSi 9 were replaced by the LSiM 703
    LSi 15 was replaced by the LSiM 705
    LSi 25 was replaced by the LSiM 707

    just like the LSi series you can use the bookshelf speakers as surrounds or use the bi-pole di-pole speakers. When I go 7.1 I havent decided if I will go with another set of LSi F/X's or a set of LSi 7's or LSi 9's

    Please clarify. Are you saying that the LSiM 702F/X (surround speaker) can be used as either a bipole or a dipole speaker? I didn't notice any type of switch in the photos or anything in the Polk advertising about this.

    I'd like to get on the 703 demo list if they ever make their way back thru Southern California.

    My apologies I just looked again and Leroy is correct, there is no option on these like the LSi F/X's. I made an assupmtion and we all know what that does .....

    Because the LSiM 702F/X is a bipole speaker only, are people with a 5.1 set up putting them on the back wall only rather than the sidewall? What about for a 7.1 set up?

    No, you can put it on either side or back- the manual has the recommended orientation, but with other surrounds of a similar design, I've found that it just comes down to personal taste and the specific room.

    It's not a bipole; it's direct.

    For 5.1, it'll be dependent on the room, which is true of any speaker, bipole, dipole, or otherwise. For 7.1 I'd run (1) pair as sides and (1) pair as rears.

    To expand on this- you can achieve something like direct, bipole and dipole based on the placement. Tweeters forward, on side walls, behind listening position will give you a direct sound; but any configuration where you get the tweeters both bouncing off the walls and with a direct path will give something akin to a bipole/dipole sound. The precise phasing will depend on the spacing to the wall and the to the listening position and the dominant frequencies.

    How I set up my surround system when I was free to put the speakers where I wanted was to get two friends to hold them at the appropriate height, over their heads (so they weren't blocking the sound too much). Put on your favorite scene with good surround (Beach scene in saving private ryan, plenty of stuff in LOTR, etc), and just try out as many configurations as possible. When it "pops" for you, put them there (and hope it's not the middle of a doorway).
