  1. System Setup and Connection
    Hi All! I am preparing to wire and place speakers in a game room. It has a few unique challenges in the form of an angled double-door and a long window seat. I'm trying to figure out where to place my dipole surrounds and rears. The attached image isn't completely to scale. I couldn't quite get...
  2. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi I have modeled response for, designed and made an enclosure for one sub. I'm familiar with how to apply LWTransform in winISD. The sub is built but the circuit not yet. In the foreseeable future its likely I will stick another identical driver on the end of the enclosure to form dipole to...

    After a previous build based on vertically stacked planar magnetic speakers, I decided to make a more or less conventional three-way loudspeaker system, keeping the dipole radiation for the highs only. If you're interested, please follow this link: JdM12 Audio Project
  4. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    I have a pair of 15" drivers in a W-frame dipole sub enclosure which is a slightly enlarged version of Linkwitz's W-frame dipole sub design which uses 12" drivers. For the 6dB/oct equalization I used the DSP built into my NU-1000DSP. The first filter implements a lowpass shelf with a pole at...

    Any opinions for a southern newbie. Thinking these might be a good fit for my HT for the left and right surround for a 7.2 system some of the seating would be about 4 ft from the speakers. Front speakers are all Polk 2 60 towers and a cs125. Have not purchased any rears yet.
  6. System Setup and Connection
    Was considering doing one final upgrade, and adding the 2 last speakers to do 7.1. Is it better with 7.1? Or just keep 5.1. And if I do 7.1, do i want a set of Dipole speakers from polk? The FXi Series? Or just stick with the RTi6's I have, and get another set of RTi6's? And I have the older...
  7. Home Audio Speakers
    Can someone explain to me what this is all about? I assume from what I have read that one setting the sound is more directional and the other is more diffuse. What are the pros and cons of either of these settings? I was looking into getting Polk F/XiA6 speakers to replace my Polk Monitor...

  10. Home Audio Speakers
    In my dedicated home theater I have Infinity Classia for the front soundstage , and RBH inwalls (A-616 models) for the rears. overall sound is very good but the surrounds could be better , but I just found a great deal on matching Classia C255ESBK dipoles and was thinking of changing them out...

    As you can see in the photos, they're in perfect shape with no marks, scratches, or broken grille pegs. The Rocket ELT DPA's are sonically identical to the Rocket RSS300's and even use the exact same cabinets. Only thing different was that the 300's had piano black endcaps glued on top and...
  12. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I have dipoles for surround sound speakers in my 5.1 setup. They were placed on the side walls to the sides of my main listening couch, the null between the 2 tweeters on each speaker is just over 2 feet from the rear wall. When speaking to a cedia trained expert about the possibilities of...
  13. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hey all I currently have some Kef IQ dipoles for surround. My room layout has limited to the current mounting. About 9ft above and1 ft behind. I cannot change this. Needless to say the surround is lacking. My question is this. I am building speakers should I do Direct Radiators with the baffle...

    1 pair of white dipole surround speakers. Forward firing side (in phase) has a 5 3/4" poly woofer and a 3/4" tweet, rear facing driver is a 4 1/2" paper coned midrange that is in it's own enclosure to prevent cancellation. Cosmetically 7-8 out of 10, with some scuffs and smudges on the grille...
  15. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    It's been over a year since I started this, but the paint is finally dry on my DIY subwoofer project. It's a dipole subwoofer design with a Linkwitz alignment (spooning, not mirrored). As you can see my finishing booth setup is not ideal :) Material is MDF, first part of the finishing was...
  16. Home Audio Speakers
    Hi, Paradigm's new ADP-590 dipoles are no longer side specific as noted in another thread here - or rather are not labeled as such. So, you end up with one side speaker that is in phase facing the front/main speakers and the other side speaker that is out of phase facing the front/main speakers...
  17. DIY Speakers
    Sooner or later, I’m going to start building the speakers for my future home theater. I’m pretty certain that I want dipoles for the surrounds, but I can’t find any projects that people have made. I could try to design one from scratch, but I’m apprehensive. I can figure out two ways around...
  18. Home Audio Speakers
    I was recently at my local "hi-end" speaker store and they were informing me that a single stereo in-ceiling speaker (1 woofer, 2 tweeters) can be rewired to be used as a dipole. Has anyone had experience with this? Exactly how do you do it? :help:
  19. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I am contemplating building (4) towers, each with 4 forward facing 18" drivers, and 4 rear facing drivers. The main idea here is to maximize the driver to floor space ratio. The rear firing drivers would be 3"-8" away from the wall. My question is, are there inherent problems with this design...
