It's going to take some experimentation for sure. Ideally with 4 subs you'd be able to control that kind of spatial variation but clearly there...

Personally, I wouldn't think the RC-70's would be a "major upgrade" over the RC-LCR's for movies/games usage. Especially since you have a good subwoofer. The RC-LCR's are also a 3-way design, they...

Don't use Atmos amp assign mode. You (ironically) can't configure for Atmos-enabled speakers in this mode.

You need to use 7.1ch amp assign mode and then configure your height layout accordingly.
