The clip spacing in the picture you posted is much denser than mine. I was hoping there was a reason for that, other than your plans are right and my plans were wrong.

Did the design above take into account the extra weight of Atmos speakers as part of the clip/channel layout?

How do the lower end Sharp's compare at home after calibration vs the store? They don't hold up well in the store, especially with the Sony native 4k demo material. I don't like the blown out...

I'm pretty sure you can return it. At least that's what John told me when we were overkilling the order - better to have more & return some than to run out. I probably have enough extra clips to do...
