My 1500 cu ft media room.

This is my second attempt at putting together a media room. It’s not perfect, but It looks and sounds great! I have M&K lcr950 bookshelf speakers and two MK X12 subs configured for Atmos 5.2.4. I just upgraded my projector to the JVC NX5. I know it’s off center but there was an air vent in the way so I had to put it there. Anyway here’s a couple pics.

Great job. Looks like a "cozy" solution with less than ideal room. I have a similar issue I am trying to work through with even more sloped ceiling than you have (but much larger room I think). What are your room dims? My main challenge is finding best placement for my Atmos speakers on a sloped ceiling and trying to conform as much as possible to Dolby specs. My question is how do your height speakers perform on your sloped ceiling and lower height than full ceiling? Where did you place your front heights? Did you consider using angled baffle speakers like SVS Prime's on front wall at top ceiling height?

Hello,


As far as the heights/ceiling speakers go I am perfectly happy with them on the sloped part of my ceiling. In my old media room I had in ceiling speakers, and the difference between the way I have them now vs in ceiling install is not dramatic. When it comes to that I think it is more important to have timbre matched height/ceiling speakers. I also turn up my Atmos speakers about 1.5 db from where Audyssey sets them. I do that to compensate for Audyssey dynamic eq boosting my surrounds, and the fact that the calibration mic is actually placed slightly higher than my head so that it clears the head rest of my chair during setup.


My room is 1500 cubic feet so it's not huge.


Finally I would say that the most dramatic atmos affect will occur not so much from the exact location of them on the wall/ceiling but from the height they are placed. For example, if you had your atmos speakers 15 feet over your head the dispersion would be much greater and the height effects would be better. I can only pull off 8 feet over my head due to ceiling height. It's the best I can do in the room. Ultimately, compromise will always be made in this hobby. In my room the effect of having ceiling/height speakers is greater than not having them so that's good enough for me.
