Default Looking for bipolar DIY kit/plans.

I would like to try my hand at building a set of surround sound speakers for my HT room. Currently, I run Acoustic Research 2062's in front, and 2052's in the rear with a CPS25 center and S108PS sub.

I've looked around a good bit but have not found any DIY bipolar speaker designs out there let alone kits for such. I suppose that I could buy a set of inexpensive Fluance speakers instead but I'd really like to build my own.

Anyone know of where I could find such plans and/or kit? I need to keep the total cost below $200 if possible.

Thanks.

Default build a lot of bi-poles, but not

I build a lot of bi-poles, but none specifically for surround use.

Oh, I just remembered. Vance Dickinson designed some for his Loudspeaker Cookbook. You could check there.

In fact, Madisound does have a kit or plans for switchable dipole/bipole surrounds, as part of their Vifa A/V offering. The link should be obvious. I can't say how good they are, I have something similar for front/center, but not the rears. I have always wanted to try a set, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Based on the very popular Vifa shielded drivers.
