Because of the layout of the room, it was suggested to put the surrounds on the rear wall instead of the sides in an awkward position.
Being bipole/dipole it made sense and what is usually recommended is to keep them in their respective right/left position, firing outward, in bipole mode.
To add this before the question, in a 7.1 set-up and using bipole/dipole speakers it's recommended to flip the rear surrounds so left is on the right and right is on the left so they are firing to the center while the side surrounds are firing forward so the rears and sides are not firing toward each other. Rears still in bipole mode while sides would be in dipole.
So, on one side of the room, the speaker is firing towards an opening, the other side hits a wall. It's about a 16' wall and they're spaced about 7' apart.
Now the question, would it make sense to flip them in this case, wide wall and spacing, and fire them to the center?
Yes, I can switch them easy enough and try it, but I just got everything done last night and the last thing I want to do it re-connect and hang the speakers again. :D And, I think it may be an easy question based on the logistics. I may still test it, but not right now.
