    Default rear surround (7.1) mounting question? FXi5

    I have two pair of FXi5's, one I have set on the sides and have them as dipole for side surround. The second set is in the rear, those I have two questions about.

    I currently have them set for bipole, and they are on the left and right sides just as they are labeled. Logic tells me it may make more sense to reverse those, so the mids fire inward instead of outward? Any opinions on the proper setup? Would you keep these on Bipole or switch them to dipole as well?

    Don't no about the 7.1 hook up...but can i ask you a few questions? Noticed you got the Polkaudio RTI 12...with a Velodyne CHT-15 sub. Do you listen to music much? And if...what type of music? The reason i ask this is that i have the Polkaudio LSI 150 and thinking of going with 2 CHT-15 subs. Would apreciate your input on how your system sounds...listening to music. Thanks in advance

    actually I cant give you a reply quite yet on this. I just bought the CHT-15 and have nto hooked it up. I have been running an older JBL 12" sub in the system until now. I listen to about 80% movies, 20% music.

    Ill update once I have it hooked up.

    Goingganzo?

    Do you leave them set as Bipole or switch them to Dipole when I switch their positions?
