After much experimentation, I have decided on a front soundstage for my HT system:
Fronts: Usher Audio Dancer Mini 2 DMD's
Center: Usher Audio BE-616 DMD
Unfortunately, Usher does not make bipole surrounds, and I do not want to use their bookshelf speakers. I want wall-mountable bipoles, preferably with midrange drivers and tweeters firing in both directions. I would prefer a "lively" sound signature rather than warm to match with the Usher DMD's and to add some excitement to the mix. Budget is <1k, but closer to 500 would be nice.
So what are some universally good bipoles for this application?
I am currently considering the Klipsch Reference Series RS-62ii's for the following reasons:
- Tweeter and midrange firing in both directions.
- The Klipsch horns should be nice and lively.
- Slick semi-circle look when wall-mounted.
Concerns about the Klipschs:
- Are they too bright?
- Will the horns disperse as well as domes, or are they more directional?
Thanks for any recommendations!
