The sub is downfiring and hence direction of the sub facing won’t change experience much. However , if possible you may try to place the subs near a wall.If not possible just place the sub which keeps your room aesthetic clean.
The rear speakers will not be alive for all contents. However, always keep the surround on option from the remote, this might improve your experience.Certain content don’t have the channels for surround so the neural x still tries to upmix and might not succeed.
After you receive the firmware upgrade for your model, you will find that even pcm content are exceptional when upmixed by Dolby

And my repost was at the right time as it has become.... very quiet.
Thanks for the answers. So I could pass dolby or DTS all day but if it has a 2.0 mix say from certain channels vs others on the same streaming app, I should probably be glad it's trying to upmix to at least 5.1 with the soundbar?
One last question about the subs: I only even asked because of the giant vents on the back and I feel like I could be either ruining sound or losing sound, but someone knows more about that than me so I asked.
But, is their diagram really the best idea? If I did a diagonal sub scenario, the front left could go pretty much surrounded by two sides of wall, and the entertainment center (really sleek, really good looking, really cheap, aka a pain in my ass until I was done putting it together... = IKEA). I'd probably pull that one a little forward so it wouldn't be crazy surrounded for obvious reasons. The right front sub would be close to the right side of the couch diagonally from the front left sub, but next to and closer to the couch, which would give the right sub a surface to vibrate off of besides the floor, and make everything clean.
BUT would that totally throw off the EVENNESS I get with them both right there boom in the middle of the room?
I ask because I think I saw someone attempt this. But this thread is long. As is this post so...
Thank you to anyone who answers.
Finally, am i the only one here who does not use Tapatalk, but doesn't even know what it is? I am a computer programmer, and it disconcerts me that I assume it's for messaging?
If no one answers, I'll end up Googling it later, but if anyone wants to weigh in because SO MANY POSTS ON THIS PARTICULAR FROUM say sent from Tapatalk, I want to hear why from you guys (because you guys and girls rock... just being serious, this forum is the best forum ever, quirky at times usually for the better, all is mostly figured out in the end because threads don't usually die until there is nothing left to tear apart on the topic so it's awesome, but we already knew that).
PS. Did not proofread. Playoffs on.
