    Hello,
    Here is an interesting article about Michael Gerzon a British audio scientist and inventor who did early work with surround sound. In his experiment, what would now be the center speaker would be the single front speaker reproducing the "common channel information". The left and right main speakers would be placed to the sides of the listener, where we now place our 5.1 surrounds. Then the "difference information" would be from a single speaker placed behind the listener.

    Hello,
    If someone wanted to duplicate this experiment they would need a single Monitor 7, a pair of Monitor 10 speakers and a pair of SDA CRS or SDA 2 speakers and a good quality surround sound receiver. The single Monitor 7 would the front single speaker connected to the receiver's center speaker connection. Then a Monitor 10 would be placed to the right and left of the listening position placed the same distance from the listener as the single front speaker. Then a pair of SDA CRS or SDA 2 would be connected to the surround channels, of the receiver, but leaving off the negative speaker wire connections to each speaker. This would allow the two SDA speakers to reproduce the difference information, the SDA signal. The two SDA speakers would only have their SDA components making sound.
    Then play some recordings with the receiver set to Dolby 5.1 use recordings that are live recording, maybe concert CDs or DVDs.
    Could be interesting?

    Sorry, try entering "Michael Gerzon" in your search engine and the sixth listing is the one.
