Thank you for the reply and info! My HT layout is attached for reference. BTW, There is a large window on the left side that the boss said I can't remove . So it will have room-blackening window treatments and drapes to close it off when the HT is in use.

The reason I asked about mounting the surround vertically or horizontally in the wall is the IW-30 can do either with the Mid-Tweet-Mid component rotatable. Will vertical installation sound better than horizontal? Any difference in sound? What would you suggest for vertical vs. horizontal installation? Thanks!

Oh, right. I understand what you are saying now. Well in theory the difference is negotiable, but I personal would still go horizontal with 8" driver on the far back side away from window and the MTM drivers array on the closest to the window side. Whatever you do, do NOT mount the speaker box in a manner where the MTM array is not straight up and down. This is why the speaker allows the 8" driver to move so the MTM always stays vertically via THX specs for limited vertical dispersion.

Also note: I added image for something I would change in the In-ceiling speaker locations. This is the hardest part to get right with Atmos. If the main listing position is in the middle of that couch than I would move them back. Try and produce a sphere of sound is the idea. But the height speakers should be inline with front speakers and pointing down at approx 45 degrees to the main listing position.

Thank you so much for the reply and the advice/information on the in-walls and relocation of the ceiling speakers! Much appreciated - now off to order the IW-30's!

Cheers!
