And you need the decoding for >5.1.4 too. You can't just use these methods to expand a "lesser" Atmos receiver.

It is required to START with something that can decode at least 7.1.4 and then...

Haha, thanks! :D

SA was okay but certainly no TIH/LFDH. No way.

With regards to the height of them.... if you really want good Atmos sound... go as low as you can (within reason). For your system, maybe 6ft off the ground. You don't want any speaker firing right...

Heh. Yeah, good luck with the UNITY project.

I recommend building the horn and seeing it in hand for yourself. Everything will make sense once you've got it built. It's very easy to assemble.
