Yeah, I've saved your chart for reference.

My only concern is the 2nd row being inches away from the rear surround speakers for any use of direct firing speakers back there.

And could I use the InWall Silver/4 Omni SE or even InWall Silver LCR (like doublewing) instead too for cost saving? Like many use the Gold line for LCR and Silver line for the surround duty?

What's the main difference between the LCR and the Omni SE line?

Thanks for all the effect guys! I'm new to the Triad speakers and surely looking forward to join the family.

Unfortunately, the back row of your theater is very close to the wall and any speaker is going to hotspot like crazy. It's the front row that has the prime seats. Design for those viewers. Design for Atmos and other immersive formats (you won't regret it)... no dipoles. Timbre match if you can. Dawn has you on the right path.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

So you recommend me to forgettable the 2nd row viewer and focus on the primary user on the front row? Sounds reasonable option if I really can't accommodate both rows in my case.

Btw, I'm using Emotiva XPA-2 & XPA-5 amp, are they ok to power those Triads?

It's all about compromises, unless you have a BIG room to work with for more optimal seating and speaker arrangements and so you can compromise less... and even then there is only one true sweet spot where the soundtrack's "audio bubble" is closest to the mixer's original intent.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I'm just plain confused and believe the algorithm for choosing Triad speakers is wrong for most/some applications.

I understand Gold Omni SE being recommended for surrounds with Gold LCR's due to having similar tweeter but the similarities stop there!

Sensitivity relating to dynamics should be considered.........sensitivity on Gold Omni SE is 6-7 db's less in sensitivity than Golds. IMHO, Silver LCR's have been a better match with Gold LCR's in my room than Gold Omni SE's due to fore mention issue. Triad speaker list is not match all for all applications..

Just saying.......

Erskine Group spec-ed Gold LCR's for front and 6 Silver LCR's for surrounds. I suspect Gold Omni SE's were not part of equation due to huge sensitivity difference.
