I haven't disassembled it but I would imagine the phase plug pole is integral with the heavy metal basket / magnet structure at the back of the driver. The actual woofer basket moves freely up and...

It would WORK, technically, in the sense that sound would come out of all the speakers. But would it give the intended effect? Sort of. In a 5.1.2 system with the .2 being Front Height, I would...

I'm confident this was discussed in the Atmos thread :) Although to be fair to you, it's a loooong thread and I'm sure you could have missed it.

But, yes, a 7.1.4 config will work for Atmos with...

The Marantz 7702 (like the 7009 receiver version) is based on the X4100 and, like that model, is made in China. So it's basically the pre/pro version of the X4100/SR7009.

All current "consumer" AVR's max out at 11ch processing. To go beyond 11ch simultaneous you need to step up to uber expensive dedicated processors like Trinnov and Datasat ($15-20k+).
