Hello all, thought I'd start a new thread rather than have it buried in my build thread.
I am mid-build of a dedicated, soundproofed, and acoustically treated home theater. I'm at the stage now where I'm about to hang drywall and need to figure out exact speaker placement for prewiring.
Originally, the room design required that I use higher than normal angled surrounds due to width of room and where the aisles would be (didn't want people to hit their heads). I decided on 4 Volt 10's in angled enclosures, which I have already built. After I did demo, I found a large area in the room that the builder had hid (to keep the room rectangular). I ended up flipping my theater to take advantage of the wider portion of the room.
So now this is what it looks like with the speakers planned location:
The 4 black boxes are Volt-10 in angled down enclosures.
Are they too high for side/rear surrounds?
Since I'm trying to figure out if I'm going to wire for Atmos (I would want to do 4 ceiling speakers), I wonder if there is enough height difference between the Atmos in ceiling speakers and these speakers to make a difference?
Any suggestions? I was thinking about dropping them a bit lower like this:
Think this will make a noticeable difference? And think the angled boxes will have an issue being this low down?
THanks for any response!
