Cars and audio are all about moving air. The more air they can move, the faster and louder you can get.

Engine bore x stroke = woofer Sd x Xmax.

Question Let's discuss ATMOS if in-fact you actually have it ???

Guys,

Audioguy and any other AVS member,

Chuck, Below are pictures from Dolby on what they say is the correct Atmos Ceiling Speaker locations for 6 ceiling speakers.

I want to discuss with you since I know you have 6 ceiling speakers for your Atmos.
I'm doing all this here on my thread so I didn't put this over on your's and possibly take your Thread Off-Topic to Atmos.
My thoughts are that this is correct or why would they (Dolby) post this as the correct positions/placement.
There are so many (Opinions) over on the dedicated two (2) Atmos threads I'm just not even going to either of them.

It seems to me this should actually be simple if ?????????

(1) You have the physical room for six (6) Atmos Ceiling Speakers in DEPTH ???
(I'm referring above to their Depth some areas cannot have the Deeper size Atmos speakers)

TRIAD Atmos I'll be going with,

https://www.triadspeakers.com/produc...-silver-9-sat/

Enclosure Size (H x W x D)

13½ x 13½ x 8⅞"


(2) That there is room for the six (6) Atmos speakers period ???

(3) That you have the physical room to place the six (6) Atmos ceiling speakers to where Dolby says in the below diagrams ???


Fortunately, my H/T has the needed space to put mine exactly where Dolby says ...........

So, Chuck or anyone that actually has six (6) Atmos speakers and you could put them to where Dolby says please jump in and say something.

The below Diagrams are right from Dolby:
As you can see I CROPPED them so they are Super-Easy to READ !!!

Talking

I only have a Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 (7.1.2 phantom rear) setup. My receiver does not have pre-outs to do external amplification, except for subwoofer.

Post I have made the final decisions on the Atmos components ...

Guys,

I have now made the {Final-Decisions} on my Atmos components.

I'm going with the Triad 6-Ceiling Speakers above in my post with the pictures of them as well as the videos I posted.

https://www.triadspeakers.com/produc...-silver-9-sat/

The Triad speaker grills will be in, Black Paint Finish see below.



I have just as of yesterday finalized my decision on the Power-Amplifier.
I'm going with the Marantz MM8077 that will be an excellent match to my new Marantz AV8805 Pre-Amp processor.

https://www.us.marantz.com/us/Produc...oductId=MM8077




And the existing Marantz AV8805 recently installed and Custom Calibrated by Chad B.










I am now waiting for the install proposal from in Nashville, TN.
(And saving the monies for the Atmos of course)

https://wolfhilltechnologies.com/


Things are coming together nicely,
Terry

Wow! So you are going to have the the 1st 8805 pre-out to the 2nd 8805 pre-out to the 8077 for the Triads?

Well to say things in a simple as possible way.
The AV8805 Marantz will trigger the Marantz MM8077 Power 7-channel amplifier.
In other words one simply picks up the Marantz AV8805 remote and touches on and the Marantz MM8077 power amplifier will also come on.

Simple, straight forward ............

Terry,

Can you detail why you chose the Marantz over the Monolith? From performance standpoint, it seems like the Monolith is much, much, more stout. And it is a lot cheaper, too.

I'm specifically thinking of the fact that the Marantz is rated at 150wpc with 2 channels driven, into 8 ohms (at least according the site I was looking at). The Monolith, on the other hand, is rated at 200wpc, all channels driven, at 8 ohms...or a whopping 300wpc, all channels driven, into 4 ohms.

The Monolith also has a trigger input, as well....so I don't know if that is an issue?

Anyway, I don't know your listening levels, or future plans, but I am curious as to what steered you away from that Monolith. Did the heft of it (it weighs 48 lbs more than the Marantz, it seems) factor in?

Those statements sound like you are running 2 AVR's plus external amplification.

Terry,


I'm still following your thread...love your updates.

I won't be able to sleep tonight so I need to tell you this. Whoever is selling you this equipment for Atmos is selling you a golden egg when you only need an egg.
There is no scenario in this World that you need a Marantz amp to power Atmos speakers. I know you read up on it so I'm sure you also know how "little" these speakers are used in a majority of scenes/movies(there are always exceptions). As long as you are aware that these Triads and a Marantz amp is WAY overkill I won't feel so dirty....and I'm sure you'll be happy with the end result. This is coming from someone with over $8k in subs so believe me I am talking the talk and walking the walk.

Enjoy your theater in good health with your wife and keep those pictures coming!

Shane,

I'll try my best buddy so here goes in order of importance to me buddy .............

(1) The Monolith is sold directly from the manufacturer to the customer and in my case I don't like doing my business like that.

(2) I ALWAYS-ALWAYS much prefer doing my business with a local Company and keep the monies local versus outside Companies that don't HELP support the Local Economy IMHO.

(3) Power wise the Marantz exceeds the maximum power the Triad calls for so the Monolith with additional power is just extra FLUFF.
(Triad power specs:
Recommended Amplifier Power
25 - 125 W)



(4) Cost, in my case money does matter but if I can I'll always pick matching components if I can so in this case I could so i did go Marantz.

(5) The trigger thing really has nothing to do with my choice I was just mentioning it as a comment as both Amps have that.

(6) Speaking of the almost 100 Pound Weight of the Monolith I suppose that's up to the purchaser and that alone made no difference to me.

Hope the above answers your thoughts and questions buddy.

Sorry , if I came across like that let me see if I can say it in a different way for further clarification.

I now have the Marantz AV8805 Pre-Amp Processor.

When I finally have the money to add Atmos I'll be going with the Marantz MM8077 7-channel power amplifier.
It delivers power and detail, and is rated at 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms, and 180 watts per channel into 6 ohms.

Hope the above ^^^ clears things up my baddddddddd

two_tonn,

As you will see I added some additional (Smilies) to your above post for some FUN buddy.

Okay here is the scoop buddy .........

1st I want you to be able to sleep like a baby tonight so I better do an excellent job on what I say in this post.

I could have actually went with Atmos ceiling speakers that retail for like $125.00 US dollars each.
I also could have gone with a 7-channel power amplifier for like $599.99 on Amazon.
And if I had done the above I would have Atmos and from my understanding (Obviously I cannot confirm personally) it would work and sound great per what some of my buddies have said to me on AVS.

Now that I've gotten the above out of the way ..........

I am not one of those people that chooses to operate on a Budget.
To further clarify that ^^^ I don't have to have the BEST or the Top-of-the-Line as if I was one of what some of us refer to as the 1-Per-Centers.
I simply try my best to have what makes sense to me for my budget even though in reality I could do things for a heck of a lot less for a FACT and I know that.
Next month this fellow typing this (Me) is going to be 74 years old.
And we didn't elect to have any children and in my case I didn't leave any children in Vietnam.
So, buddy, I go as far as I possibly can with my Cars as well as this House and also the Custom Home Theater in regards to excellence and place the cost aside as long as I feel like what I do is within our budget.

If we were running buddies like my Long-Term Car & Home Theater buddy Tom Cochran in San Antonio, TX. this is exactly what I would say to him below.
I don't want a $125.00 dollar any speaker nor do I want a $599.00 dollar power-amplifier and since I don't have to I'm not going to.
Now I realize that what I just said above ^^^ could be possibly taken by anyone as me being an Outspoken Smart-Ass or even a Braggart.
All I'm doing here is saying what I would to a very-very long term 76 year old buddy that we can and do confide in one another in a 100% Totally-Truthful way.
I don't really think that is the way the greater majority of people are in this world and certainly not on an internet site to strangers.
Just thought you might actually appreciate me actually saying how things really are with what some of us refer to as NOT (Sugar-Coating) it.

Sometimes it is nice just to share things in an honest and straight-forward manner,
Terry

Terry,

Thanks for the very detailed response! One thing that really surprised me about the Monolith is that it is "designed, engineered, and assembled in the United States of America". I am really surprised that they can keep the price so reasonable, and also carry a 5 Year Warranty. I know there was some expectation that they would switch over to overseas manufacture, but apparently that hasn't happened...yet?

I am sure the Marantz will be more than enough for your application...and if it is what you really want, there is no other choice!

Monday morning,

Hi Shane ...........

The rest of the Story on the "Monolith".
Actually what got me onto the Monolith was when I saw the videos of it and it being produced here in the USA.

And in my case I immediately contacted

I found out then that the "Monolith" is ONLY sold from the Manufacturer to the Consumer not any Authorized Dealer.

So, for me that did it I was immediately out and one Major reason is,
No-Support from my local A/V Dealer that would be doing the install.

That's when I decided, okay can't do the "Monolith" so I'll just go with the Marantz MM8070 and have matched components even with greater Front-End cost.
But, in doing so I can simply pick-up the phone and call my guy and everything will be handled if there ever is any issues with the Marantz.

I'm NOT into doing installs and certainly NOT into A/V Gear that has to be packed-up and sent back to the manufacturer by (Me) that weighs 100 Lbs.

Shane, I'm an older guy and have paid the price many-many times over on NOT doing the Smartest/Wisest thing.
That's why now I (Think) and do extensive research (Before) making my final decision/decisions.

Post For those interested I had a recent Guest from North Carolina ...

Guys,

I actually just now thought about sharing a post from Tim that flew in from Charlotte, North Carolina last Sunday May 5th 2019.
He is in the process of building a Custom, State-of-the-Art, Home Theater.
Tim is what many of us would certainly call a professional for sure.
He had a business appointment near Franklin, TN. where I live on Monday morning in Manchester, TN.
So, he wanted to drop by and hang-out with me and share the Home Theater and that's what we did.

This is what we watched below and the system was definitely CRANKED-UPPED !!!


This post will be from his Dedicated Thread on his build so you might also like to check that out.

Click on link below to Tim's Custom build,

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/19-de...ld-thread.html






TMcG,


With the above being said below is the link to what Tim had to say about his visit last Sunday.

And the existing Marantz AV8805 recently installed and Custom Calibrated by Chad B.










I am now waiting for the install proposal from in Nashville, TN.
(And saving the monies for the Atmos of course)

Things are coming together nicely,

In my case I will not be attending any (High Performance Driving Event) with mine.
Just not my thing.
I grew up in the Muscle Car era where we all did the 1/4 mile Drag-Strip thing.

I'm now (June) going to be 74 yrs. old so I just want to enjoy the RS3 on the street.

Below is the Link to me taking delivery of it on Saturday May 18th 2019 if your interested.
The post over on Audi World is extensive with lots and lots of detailed pictures.

Thumbs up Samsung Split-Unit being repaired for Vibrating/Rattling noises ...

Guys,

I called the owner of Hiller Plumbing & Heating the other day.
The reason was the Samsung split-unit unit located in the H/T (Home Theater) for sometime has had a Rattling/Vibrating noises going on.
I could work around it by manually lowering the fan speed to low.
That semi worked but as months have rolled by since having the new JVC RS4500 laser projector installed.
It's become much more of an issue.
With outside Heat-Index for summer temperatures being around recently 100-Plus degrees.
And this house being all brick.
The H/T temperatures can and do rise so I do need to adjust the fan speed on the higher speeds.
Due to watching a lot more 4K and 4K HDR content both from hard-disc as well as streaming it from Amazon Prime, Netflix, Dish, Hulu etc.
The RS4500 is running on High-Laser so the H/T needs to be really much-much cooler.
So, finally I decided to touch base with the owner, Jimmy Hiller and explain to him what was going on.
He talked with Chris Klaver his HVAC Manager and Chris sent out his top tech for Split-HVAC-Units as well as the Tech Supervisor.
They took the unit apart and found "Multiple-Broken" parts off the main drum that blows the air out.
They also at the same-time replaced the motor as a precautionary sort of thing.
They reassembled it and also went outside and cleaned that unit while they were here.

It now is once again Silent and I can now run it on Full Automatic or adjust the fan-speed-manually.
I'm trying 70-degrees now that the blower speed is back up where it should be.
It is once again blowing Super-Cold-Air out.

Yes guys I did install the cover on the Rear JML speaker just as a Safety thing.


Dale is the HVAC Supervisor and Jason is the Senior Tech for Split-Units.









You can see the broken vent.

































I changed the Low Fan Speed to Medium and the temperature back to 70-degrees





They actually Cleaned both the Samsung & Carrier outside units









Well it's another Super Hot and High Humidity day here so glad this is now done.

Hi Terry,


Hey, buddy, glad you got that Samsung Cooler repaired.
You have high heat like we do in Texas so having the unit at 100% is definitely needed.
In addition getting rid of the irritating sound from the broken unit must be a relief.


Glad to read that you are enjoying more 4K/HDR material these days.
Being in your home theater is close to what it must be like in heaven.


Cheers,
Tom
