Hello! I have a question regarding dipole speakers. I currently have a 7.1 setup. I have 2 Snell SR7 dipole speakers set as my surround sides in diffuse mode. And I have two more Snell SR7 dipoles for my rear surround speakers. I currently have my rear SR7's set to direct mode.
1) Is this mode preferred for the rear as opposed to diffuse? Or does the placement determine the optimal setting. Specifics of the placement are listed below.
2) The back wall is 18 feet long. Due to closet doors being there I had to adjust their location. Each speaker is about 6 inches way from the side wall makign them rougly 16 feet apart. Should they be moved really close to one another somehow? Moved somehwat closer and changed to diffuse? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
