    Default "Ghetto" dipoles

    I've never heard these, so that's why I need some opinions before I take a fun trip out to the Rat Shack.

    click here -----> Rat Shack Swivel Speakers <-----click here

    My plan is to oppose the tweets and woofs - wire them out of phase, high pass the tweets at say, 300?, and have myself some ghetto dipoles for a simple old PL system.

    The 170hz bottom limit is all that concerns me.
    OK, so I'm not really concerned, but something to consider.

    Check your lips at the door woman. Shake your hips like battleships. Yeah, all the white girls trip when I sing at Sunday service.

    Up until 5 months ago, I was using a pair of those BA VRS (not the micro's) speaks as my side surrounds and I really liked them. I'd been using them for about 5 years with no problems whatsoever. Good luck if ya go that route.....

    OK, then. Just needed some dipoles for an old PL system. Them Boston Acoustics look good. Criteria, BTW, is:
    1) Cheap. I'm not paying more than about $50 for a PL surround.
    2) Immersive. PL - MONO!
    3) Wall mountable/small (to be placed on a shelf). I'm not paying for stands. 'Nuff said.
    4) Decent looking. Can't be big or ugly. Even *I* only have so much tolerance for audio "ugliness".

    Russ, what is that, a sub/sat combo? Only need the surrounds.

    Wow, I can always count on you guys to make me feel stupid! :D

    Yes, a sub sat combo, actually FOUR sats and a passive sub.

    For that price, I figure you could take what you want, tweek/sell the rest. Ie, take the smaller FR drivers out, mount them on the rear of the larger 2-way, wired out of phase - blamo, you got your dipole on. AND you have 2 cabs and a sub to mess with.

    Dude, no offense, but for $50 and a bottom end of 170Hz, that is pretty much crap, dontcha' think? Dipoles for $50 is going to be tough.
