    I purchased a set of bipolar speakers for my surrounds on a 5.1 setup. I'm a bit confused where these should be mounted. Can I put these on the side wall or should they be put on the rear wall? I have two rows of seating if that helps.

    I have Def Tech 8040BP (Bipolar) speakers and I'm wondering how to best place the rear speakers. I understand I can place them either as rear or side surround speakers. My plan was to place the speakers in the corner and angle it at about 45 degrees towards the listening area. Seeing how...

    Audio Processing
    After now close to 10 hours of tweaking (from getting it last Wed.) and playing with the pro eq and reverb 3d features I started to really explore the difference MCACC was providing when measuring my bi-polar high freq drivers.

    DIY Speakers
    These are going to be my new towers. Sorry for little build pics I don't have resources to build these perfect. So I had to use some unorthodox way of doing so. Hand cutting everything pretty much. But It will all be sealed good and I have bracing in the towers. I'm pretty much doing a High...

    DIY Repair and Maintenance
    I came across an advertisement for set of Definitve BP6B Bipolar towers for sale used for $200. One speaker emits no sound. I'm going to go look at them this evening. Aside from the obvious check connections, check receiver settings, cables... what else might be the reason for no sound?
