Should I use a direct radiating speaker for surround sound?

Direct Radiating Surround Speakers

Sound created a direct radiating surround speaker is very directional (it's easy to locate the source of the sound). For this reason, direct radiating surround speakers work best in a very big space for surround sound. If you own a pair of direct radiating surround speakers, try aiming them into the back corners of the room. This will bounce the surround sound off the back walls and create a more diffuse rear surround sound. You'll even get a little natural time delay to add to the sense of space.
