Another Dolby Atmos setup questions
I recently ran speaker tubes and wire for a 7.2 (fronts, sides, rears and sub) setup and never considered a 7.2.2 (fronts, sides, rears, and sub and ceiling) setup. My attention has recently been drawn to Dolby Atmos/DTX X and things related. (I still have time to remove the drywall and run additional cables for in-ceiling speakers if needed). Could you please help me understand a few things.
1. In a 7.1.2 setup - what happens if the audio track is just DTS/Dolby Digital? meaning, do the .2 speakers even play sound? would the receiver synthesise sound for it?
2. In-ceiling vs. upward firing - i am sure there is a debate on that - but whats the layman option?
3. Should I consider in-ceiling speakers for future proofing (just install them)
4. If I did install in-ceiling speakers (with a set of sides and rears already), those in-ceiling speakers would connect to...? I would need a 9.2 dolby atmos/dts:x enabled receiver?
thanx in advance
