IMHO, the coax's dispersion pattern isn't ideal for that application but if you had 6' tall speakers and 7' reflective ceilings ... maybe. Having experienced Atmos in a good 32 speaker Atmos Theater, you're not going to get that type of sound with little up-firing mains/surrounds. IMO, that seems like a gimmick to sell new processors/speakers kinda like 3D on a 50" flatscreen ...

All that said, I did flip my surround back Slanted 8's to fire up into the ceiling and like the effect that creates for the surround backs. If I ever actually do an Atmos configuration it will be by adding 4 ceiling speakers for a 7.1.4 Atmos setup.

A minidsp would be all you would need but I prefer the dsp of the inukes for the speakers so if it were me (and this is what I did) I'd get an inuke to power the 215's and a minidsp for the subs.

Well, then you also need a mic to measure the response and a laptop to have the mini and inukedsp hooked into. It makes it easy to watch in real time the changes you make to the dsp and how they affect the frequency response. 12 db slope crossovers and high pass filters work very well in my room.

If I get invited and get to attend...I should have my pro quality microphone and preamp/interface figured out by then and I'd love the practice of taking measurements. If not I know many have USB microphones or the Dayton Omnimic and I'm sure someone would take the measurements.

For measurement equipment I'd recommend either purchasing the Dayton Omnimic V2 system (includes SW and mic) or purchase a CALIBRATED USB microphone (UMIK-1 or UMM-6) from Cross-spectrum.com and use with the free Room EQ Wizard (EQ) software, which you can download from HTShack.com.

Find a link to the old system? And if you do, you could probably make a lot of money as I'm sure many would rather revert. But sorry, I just looked too and I couldn't figure out any way to do it. Another bit of lost functionality.

I saw those when searching eBay for a used JBL 2226H. They must be 8 ft tall.

A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free.
