DIYSG Volts for Surround & Atmos
I am working on getting details together for my new theater build and I was hoping for some feedback on surrounds. I have been chatting with Erich via email to get some more guidance on speaker choices, but don't want to bombard him with all my questions.
The basics are that I have a 16' x 25' x 8' rough framed area for the theater with one partially open side wall (8ft). I plan to place the screen at about 28" from the front wall to allow using 3 Titan 615LX's for Front Sound Stage. I have a Emo XMC-1, XPA-2 & XPA-5. I plan to purchase another XPA (or 2 to run Atmos ceiling speakers). This brings me to my next questions.
In an effort to maximize seating space I am hoping to inset the surrounds into the walls and place the atmos in the ceiling. Right now my preliminary plan is using (4) Volt-8 LX's for surrounds and (4) Volt-6 LX's in the Atmos flat packs for the ceiling. So do I use regular boxes or angle for the surrounds. I have free range to mount them at nearly any height. Why angle if you can place at ear level?
