The more discussion I see on Atmos, the more I think it's something that would NEVER work in my real-world environment.

My walls are asymmetrical, there are openings in the middle of the room, ceiling fans. Not to mention it would take expert level knowledge to properly install. And how many Atmos designers have taken into consideration that WIVES like to move furniture including couches, which means different listening positions?

Frankly, I don't even really think it's 5.1 or 7.1 or 9.1 that makes such a great improvement in sound, it's the QUALITY of the sound coming from quality audio gear, and properly designed speakers, wherever they are placed.

Nothing is a fact unless it agrees with my opinion.

Would it be ill-advised to use a Fusion-8" in an angled box on my ceiling for ATMOS overheads? It would need to be on its side.I'm not sure about the interactions with the ceiling in an orientation like this.



I'm planning to use Volt-8's in an angled enclosure, but I'm considering backup plans if the driver continues to be out-of-stock.

How many rows do you have? I'd be much more concerned with lobing than with wall interaction if placed in that orientation. The wall interaction effects could be mostly equalized out.

Two rows (plus a third row bar). I was trying to orient the speakers to point directly at the MLP to limit issues with lobing, but it would certainly be a concern for the second row due to the narrow(er) pattern. I've almost convinced myself to optimize for the first row and let the second row get whatever it gets.

Yeah, I've been playing with sketchup since I started designing my theater. It's a pretty straightforward program. if you've got any computer skills you can probably learn enough in an hour to do a good model of a theater. It's a lot easier to see how things are going to work out with a model like this as well. It's been a huge help with speaker placement, sight lines, seating placement, etc.
