AT screen and up firing speakers
Sorry if I've missed it.
Has there been any discussion on the use of the up firing speakers when behind an AT screen?
I am planning for a large AT screen and had planned on just putting all the front speakers behind it, not just the center. Typically the AT screen is secured to the ceiling in some fashion as it sits 1-3 feet from the front (treated) wall. Since the screen is typically down some measure from the ceiling there could be room for the up firing part of the speakers to bounce their signal over the screen but that seems they would be severely limited in terms of angles. (9 ft ceiling in my case, but more is better.)
Alternatively, would the up firing speakers work as well firing through the AT screen?
Has Dolby Atmos, Pioneer, anyone else looked into the AT aspect?
