More importantly lets get back to running 10db hot subs at reference volume!! That means the SW system needs to be capable of 125dB (!!) peaks at the listening position.

Actually it could be even...

The Daredevil sound track is excellent.
I demoed it to a friend and he was surprised that Nettlix DD+ could sound that good.

That sucks. I mean I run mine 10db hot so I set them where audyssey dials em back to -8.5db, and then I boost them to 1.5db... So I need to set sub gain to get -10.5db and then boost to -0.5...

Moral of the story: if you intend to approach reference levels, make sure your sub trim is negative.

If you are listening at more casual volumes (never exceeding -10) probably a non issue.

1. If you are only running 5 ear level channels there are no rear surrounds. Surround back is for a 7.1 system. Your proposed mounting location to the sides of the LP and a bit...

Is this the same guy who told you that Audyssey wouldn't work on all 11 speakers? I think you need to start getting better sources :rolleyes:

The Roku should definitely work. I get Atmos from those VUdu trailers on both my Roku and my Sony BDP.

Yeah, 4 channels worth. Supplementing the 9 internal gives you 13 total. Even though only 11 speakers will run at a time, in order to enable the 11ch switching with 13 speakers connected you need...

I am pretty sure you won't be able to do it with only a single 2-channel ext amp. You have 9 amps onboard, + the 2 from your ext. will only drive 11 speakers. At a minimum you will need an additional...

If back surrounds aren't active when you are trying for 11ch playback it's almost certainly an issue with the amp assign settings config.

I haven't explicitly tested the 4520 specifically, but based on experience with many Denon models it's safe to assume the LFE is re-routed to the FR/FL mains when SW = NO in the speaker config.
