Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Cambridge SoundWorks Surround 5.1 surround sound speakers feature more output than their smaller counterparts, the Surround II 5.1, and are suggested for use with most surround sound systems. These state-of-the-art surrounds use MultiPole technology so they can be switched from dipole (diffuse radiation) to bipole (direct radiation) operation. This makes them the ideal speakers for use with any surround sound system, especially Dolby Digital systems which send distinctly different signals to the right and left surround speakers. The MultiPole switch on the Surround 5.1 alters the directionality of the speaker. Dipole mode sends the mid- and high-frequency output along the side walls, so all the listeners hear a diffused, enveloping sound. Bipole mode concentrates this output toward the listening area, providing central listeners more precise imaging. For all Dolby Pro Logic Recordings and most current Dolby Digital recordings we recommend the dipole mode. For some Dolby Digital recordings such as those with lots of lateral sound positioning crafted into the rear channels, the bipolar mode is a better choice.

Charcoal, also available in White.

I really like Cambridge's speakers, both because they sound good and because even I, a struggling college student, can afford them! The Surrounds do an excellent job of making me feel like I am in the movie, by bouncing those rear channel effects all over my room.

Verified Purchase
I actually have a set of these speakers and use them as rear surrounds and they sound really good, as all of my other Cambridge speakers do. The problem is that what I received was not charcoal but white. This was obviously a huge disappointment and set me back as far as setting up my 7.2 system. Some might say that it was false advertisement so what I suggest to the folks at Amazon is that you require full disclosure from anyone selling product.
