As said before, it depends on the LP. Many have decidedly different mixes, such as the Abraxas LP by Santana. Many CD-4 LP's will sound weird in stereo. In a pinch, yes the Dolby Surround system will work and is most effective on the QS encoded records.
In the title track, the sound will move from speaker to speaker around the room in a clockwise pattern. The reprise track of the song at the end goes back counter-clockwise. Here's how the matrix systems work. The tracks that are meant to be in the front channels are recorded in phase while the tracks meant for the rear channels are reverse phased. The decoder picks this info up and sends the tracks to the appropriate channels, all in phase.
Dolby Surround 4 speaker : All tracks are modified but the front channels are still in phase. Dolby takes the differences in the two channels and sends them to the rear speakers out of phase only using one rear speaker works OK but is not as dynamic.
Dolby Surround Pro-logic: It works the same way as the above explanation, but with the addition of a center front channel, it takes what is common to both stereo channels like vocals , removes them and sends them to the center speaker.

The reason why SQ picked up so much popularity is because the stereo spread was better in the two-track. He took the dub plate home and played it on his quad Sonos rig, and it did work. And of course, he knows the biggest collector. Herndon hooked him up with Odaka Shuichi, who was building his own analog encoder and decoder. Herndon also turned Kamran on to an Australian company, Involve Audio. The steering logic is a little bit different, but it works just like Seventies encoders and decoders.

CD-4 is the only discrete quad available on vinyl and it is a defective format. Unless you play a CD-4 record with a Shibata type stylus, you'll ruin it. If listenning to quad LP.
