Bipolar

« Back to Glossary Index

A type of loudspeaker design where the sound emanates from the sides of the monitor, specifically designed to be surround-sound monitors. These type of speakers work well for ambient material, but less well for dialog, soundtrack, or main effect sound. This is opposed to a direct radiator speaker which distributes the sound in front or a tripole design which is a combination of a direct radiator and a bipole.
