You use the average distance of the two subs. That's what you enter into ARC. Everything you're doing with ARC is about averages with subs.

You might want to check again because unless I'm misreading it, there's no mention of using Auromatic. He specifically mentions the Auro-3D Blu-ray demo disc and playing clips in native Auro and...

There's theoretically nothing wrong with using the universal layout on an in-ceiling Atmos setup. Denon and Marantz both appear to have in-ceiling speakers as part of their unified layout option. ...

You might want to check out the Denon link. The Denon review only talks about Atmos and DSU. Unless I'm reading it differently, seems to me that the comparison to Auro was because both use a DTS...

If you have long runs, go for Monoprice CL2-rated speaker cabling. It's the cheapest and works well. Otherwise, BlueJeans cable is great.

Do the math on the angles of the 2x front and 2x height. How close do they come to the Dolby/DTS spec? I'm a tech adopter too but for the near-term here in the USA there isn't much Auro-3D...

With the 50v and D2v the default setting goes up to 5k. You can, however override that to set it higher or lower. The MRX Receivers were capped at correction to 5k. There is no reason to EQ over 5k...
