What surrounds do you prefer? Bipole, Bookshelf or Tower
MassiveG posted a topic in Home TheaterA seamless, surrounding soundscape is huge for my immersion. Hearing bullets whiz past me from my fronts to the rear can make the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. It's equally goosebumpy for well-mixed horror movies! I've been using the RP 240s in a 5.2.2 for a while, but I feel (after calibrations, of course) they're a little too subtle. I don't always feel the immersion jumping out at me and they leave me wanting more. What surround speakers have you found work the best for you? A pair of Klipsch's bipole speakers, bookshelves or maybe even towers? I've read some people's experiences viewed the positives of bipoles (dispersion, wide sound etc) as negatives. Others that full sized floor standing towers made for more believable surround sound. It's something that's up to both personal preference and room dimensions, but it still seems like a tricky thing to find a "perfect" solution for. I've since ordered a pair of Klipsch RS-62 II which will be arriving soon, I have high hopes for them! In the meantime I've considered trying my old RP 250fs as surrounds. My current setup is: rf 7II, rc 64II, rp 240s, rp 140sa, 2x sb 2000
So I am trying to figure out what to finish up my 7.2 home theater with. I have a pair of RF-7 II's, RC-64II's, RP-250s' (surround sides), and deciding between my already owned RB-61II's or another pair of RP-250's. I've read direct radiating speakers are the choice of many enthusiasts such as THX for surround back speakers. Aesthetically I'd also prefer the RP-250s' because the colums will be built 'around' the RP-250s in a trapezoidal way. Please let me know your thoughts and opinions. Thanks.
Hello to all. I am currently finishing up my 7.2 set up with somewhat of a dilemma. I have a pair of RF-7 II's, an RC-64 II, and RP-250s' as surrounds. I have a pair of RB-61 II's that were planned to perform as my surround backs but I am leaning toward another pair of the RP-250s'. Has anyone else achieved this with these 'bipole' like speakers as their rear soundstage and love it? As far as room size, let's say it's on the 'smaller' to 'medium' size. Reason for being vague? Well, my wife and I are currently home shopping. Aesthetically I would prefer the RP-250s' for the matched trapezoidal shaped speaker columns I plan the build. Thanks for the advice and thoughts on this.
