Do you think going from my Mythos Seven center channel to the Mythos Ten center channel would be an improvement? Would it still be matched to my Mythos Five L and R?

The Ten with sound better and keep up with the Mythos Five's and yes it will match with them. In comparison the Seven sounds pretty close to the Eight. Going from the Seven or Eight to the Ten the difference in sound quality is the Ten has a fuller, smoother and less harsh sound (on the upper end) than they do.

7.2.4 Setup help

I have a room that measures 17' x 11' x 7' - 4"and I am going to set it up for 7.2.4 Dolby atmos using all mythos speakers and 4 in ceiling def techs. I plan to use mythos 10's for the front left, center and right. I was thinking of using mythos Gem XL's for the side and rear surrounds.

Either way I will have 1 sub in the front and 1 in the back for the deep bass, so I was thinking that the XL's would be fine for the rear and side speakers vs upgrading to a larger mythos 9 for the sides and rear.

Part of me thinks having the mythos 9's as side and rears would almost look dis-proportionally large vs the ceiling height of the room. Also the mythos 9's are direct speakers vs the Gem XL's that have angled drivers that disperse the sound over a broader area that may help with creating a larger sweet spot due to my narrow room width of 11'

Any thoughts or experiences?

Thanks

I have three mythos nines across the front with dual symmetrical Supercubes II's up front and Gem XL's in the rear. 5.2 setup. I am very pleased with the performance. Bass is full and very well balanced all throughout my room which is similar in size to yours. My room 23L x 17W x 7H. My seating position is about 16-17 feet away from my TV and speakers. Since your room is narrow, I agree that unless you have some space between you and the side speakers you may not hear a direct radiating speakers as well the diffuse pattern that the XL's will give. Depending where your seating position is you can probably get away with fewer speakers in a space that size. Once crossed over with subs, the mythos speakers can really be cranked easily to reference levels. I have rocked out with my setup of many times. Friends are always blown away when they experience my setup and the "you are there" feeling and volume I get when playing concerts. I bought a Pioneer SC-99 for Dolby Atmos. I plan to have a 5.2.2 setup. Just have not gotten around to installing the in ceiling speakers yet. Getting wires into my ceiling is not going to be an easy task. What speakers are you thinking about adding for Atmos?

Thanks for the input. My seating is about 9' from the screen so almost in the middle of the room. For atmos, I bought the DI5.5R from Definitive to match the size of my can lighting in the room

I agree also that the XL's will do a great job. I have them for Front Height, Sides and Rear. Once setup correctly they seen to disappear but help fill the room as they should and more!! I've thought about adding ceiling speakers for Atmos but not sure if it is worth the extra effort it will take to run the wires.

Another vote for the xl. I use them as surrounds and front heights. Capable little speaker that sounds as good as it looks lol. Hope you enjoy them.
