I've been looking through all the documents I can find, but still not finding much concrete on the ceiling speaker locations.
I will have a 27' x 17' home theater (25' x 17' from screen wall to back wall) and 10' high ceiling. I'll be mounting speakers in the coffered beams.
I'm not sure if I should mount 4 or 6 speakers (I know the current receivers would be 7.1.4 and only 4 ceiling, but I have one shot to easily incorporate the ceiling speakers).
If two, where should I put the speakers. I have two rows of seating, with the back row being about 6' off the back wall. Has Dolby provided anything other than the crude drawings and stated one set in front of listening area and one behind?
My initial thinking is to put one set just behind the back row, maybe 5' off the back wall, which would be about 8.5' behind the front row (the only row occupied 95% of time) and then the front set 8.5' in front of front row. The downside to this is it puts one set almost on top of the back row and the other 16's in front.
I'm lost as to where to cut the holes in the coffers and run the wires to.
