You really ought to read the AVS Audyssey guide instead of ranting. Your room EQ does't measure distance; it measures delay. And with powered subs there is often additional delay due to the internal...

Alternatively, he can do Atmos with the HTM-200 SEs as front heights instead of mounting on the ceiling. Or, if neither front heights or ceiling speakers are possible, consider Atmos enabled modules.

If you are going to consider the SVS Ultras, you should also look into the Ascend Acoustics Sierra 1s. They have a measured response of 44Hz - 22kHz ± 3dB, so you would get some bass out of them...
