I'm sure the pictures are blurry cause I was trying to manhandle these things and I'm fatigued as all get out. I'm just glad Spaceman made a trip over to help (as usual)!

In some ways..yes. The problem is that it was 9 weeks since I sold my 212s and then received the 215RMs. I'm trying with a lower crossover but will need some time and measurements to say where I'll settle in. So far, I thinks it's a nice upgrade.

Hop you make it over to the next meet in a few weeks. Keep watching the Houston area meets thread.

Can I ask why the switch from the 212's to the 215 RM's? I ask because I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on the 212's, along with 2 orbit shifters and some S8's

Appreciate your time,
Chad

Hey Chad

I wanted to try something closer to full range for 2 channel music.
You'll be very happy with your choices.

Hi, Did you ever decide how you were going to implement Atmos? We are building a home this year with a dedicated theater room. I was planning on doing the ceiling very similar to yours. I thought that I saw a post where you were considering using the inner tray/soffit. Do you have any recommendations for me in regard to the ceiling/atmos? Your ceiling is awesome.

Thank you!

That would be my first preference (inner soffit) but I'm probably going to have to go with inceiling in the mural. The angles only really work that way. I'm going to get something as flush mount as possible. But...I'm holding off till I see what DTS:X is going to recommend before I jump in with both feet.

Yeah. I haven't seen a recommended speaker setup yet to support all of the new formats. I was wondering if I should make the inner soffit wider to allow more space for speakers...but that might look bad. Maybe widening both would be a better option.

If you can drag your feet some till DTS announced their proper configuration in March, it might save some frustration later. I guess it depends on your timelines.

You have a build thread?

We are still doing house plans. Currently, the new house with the future theater room is just an empty lot with a bunch of trees. I'm just trying to plan as much as I can in advance. I will have the builder do as much as possible...so it won't really be DIY. We were hoping to start building in March but there have been delays in the plans.

Oh if you look at the beginning of this thread, a large chunk of my room was done by the contractor. I had to take a finished room and I tried to get it to as close as I could to the final plans. So I know exactly how that goes. Good luck with the house and keep us posted.
