Right now I have some Boston Acoustics VRS surrounds set up in a Dipole configuration. They're do the job, but they are lacking in raw volume or sound as compared to my mains.
I have been thinkin about the f/x1000's, or the fxi50's, but I really like the dual side driver setup of the 1000's. Doesn't the lack of a driver on the one side of the 50 somewhat limit it's ability to fully perform in a truely switchable di/bipole setup?
Help me with this........I realize that you can switch the 1000's(along with the other fx surrounds) between dipole and bipole, but can you just get the same effect from a direct firing speaker(either bookshelf or floorstanding) as compared to the sidefiring design of the fx series? Is there any advantage of one design over the other?
Thanks for y'alls help......
