Its not a real atmos speaker - you have to use 3 Dolby Pro logic decoders to extract sounds from the 4 proper Atmos speakers to drive the single central speaker. It is just reinforcing what should be stereo imaged at that point. Same as extracting a centre image from just the L&R speakers. See here : https://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-re...ive-audio.html
I’ll check it out, thank you!

Ok, so I think I’ve made a decision to go with 1099’s for LCR, and my left and right surround speakers. For the sake of keeping speakers within earshot, I’ll utilize htm-12’s for my rears and atmos speakers. I’m going to be running a d-sonic 5 channel to supply roughly 600 watts to my 1099’s ran through the marantz avr preamp outs first, and use the marantz 140 watt channels to power the htm-12’s. The 2 devastators will be in the front of the room, and 2 of the full Martys will be behind the couch, sideways stacked on top of each other about a foot away for some awesome tactile response. The other 2 full Martys will be on the sides of the ht rooms, to try and get relatively even dispersión of bass. I’ll have 3 nx6000d’s to power 2 speakers a piece. The htm12’s and 1099’s will slope off at roughly 100 hertz, and the devastators will pick up from roughly 100-50, with full Martys coming in around 50-15. I’m going to get a decent amount of acoustic panels to line the walls where need be, and some bass traps for corners. I’ve decided on just an 85” Samsung television, rather than a projector for the visual side of things, reason being that a projector and screen that can match the 4k clarity provided will be much more expensive for roughly 20-30 more inches of throw.....let me know opinions guys, as I can change and weigh different options if anyone has any ideas to consider. Thank you!!!!

I used Volt-8's in the ported cabinet. Made a yoke bracket so that I can aim the speakers right at my listening position. No way I would use 1099's for atmos. The dispersion on those is narrow in the vertical direction, you would have to aim them and that would be hard to do and still will have limited coverage. For surrounds overkill, but nothing wrong with that because they would work well, but wrong speaker for atmos in a home.

Another vote against the 1099's as atmos speakers. If you really want the go big or go home type of atmos speakers I would suggest the Vortex 12's instead, though the Volt 8's or 10's would be just fine and save you a lot of cash.

Spoiler!
