I think you're right. I misinterpreted it as needing to be 2x above ear height, so if ear height is 4 feet, I was thinking 2x4 above ear height for a total of 12 feet. If you're right, I'm gtg. :)

It almost seems like it's impossible to configure Atmos 100% perfectly in the average home. I have a drop ceiling with fiberglass panels which is great for sound absorption, but that cuts out being...

Thanks all for the advice. Blazar, I actually went with what I think is a really good name brand and am trying to timbre match all the speakers for Atmos. I managed to find back cans as an...

Help with In-wall speakers

So I'm gearing up my home theater in preparation for Atmos/DTS-UHD and need some help with installation of my in-wall speakers. I talked to a few friends who said they've seen in-walls (no backing)...

This is what I'm hoping won't happen - that movies will be brought out haphazardly without bringing out the true potential of the technology. Unfortunately, this has happened all too often with 3D. ...

I don't think an amp will help getting you from 7.1.2 to 7.1.4. I'm pretty sure you'll still need an 11.2 receiver. From the comments I've read...it's worth the extra coin. Having just two ceiling...

I mentioned that it was a bit low on the volume, but I certainly wasn't complaining. It's easy enough to push a button on my remote to change the volume. The thing is, there DOES seem to be a fair...

Add up all the speakers you plan on using. That's the number you need in front of the decimal. You need an 11.2 receiver, mate. And boy they are spendy right now. ;)

Awesome, thanks! That's exactly what I wanted to hear. Did you have bipole/dipole speakers and swapped them out?

I'm in the same boat right now. I believe the recommended practice pre-Atmos is around 2 feet above ear level for surrounds. Currently, the surrounds disappear and it works great. Which leads me...
